Retreat Ramblings

blogged by me domestic goddess On 9/14/2006 09:20:00 PM
I woke up feeling much better today, and have been busily preparing for next weekend. I can't believe after months of planning the first Scrapping Angels retreat is finally upon us.
I had a lovely little parcel arrive today, these little cuties are our "Scrapping Angels" aprons. They are so gorgeous and made me very happy today.
Started filling the goodie bags as well, still have lots more to come, so I am very excited. Annie is due back from Seattle Sunday. I cannot wait so we can sit and start finalising the little things.

Poor Lilly has been a poorly girl today and had a day at home with mummy, asleep on the sofa. Why is it when our little ones become ill they suddenly look so fragile.

Went and saw dad today as well. He is looking very gaunt in the face and still terribly tired, but he did acknowledge me today , even if I was only there for 10 minutes, before he asked me to leave.
Today Izzy arrived from school with an envelope from another mum who owns a very posh beauty salon. You know the places that do spa treatments and day packages to just chill and be pampered. Well this envelope contained a gift voucher for me to have a discounted treatment with. I was gobsmacked. We have both had back operations this year and we were chatting about the after shock and stuff. She knew I was down about my weight and the lack of exercise I have been able to do. I cant wait to book my pamper session after next weekend.

I am off now to pack a challenge kit for the retreat and have another early night
Thanks again for all your uplifting comments and emails. I appreciated every single one.

Anna xx
