Not to whinge or anything, but this has been/will be a tough week for me. Why? Let me count the ways:
- Betty Keira is on vacation and is one of those archaic types who doesn't use a cell phone.
- I'm in charge of the planning, buying and preparing four meals for 150 people for Friday and Saturday (church activity).
- The van der Stevejincks are in the middle of a huge backyard renovation...the cement truck will be here today to pump yards of cement for a new patio and walkways.
- I'm having to type with only nine fingers as the middle finger on my left hand is rather clumsily bandaged...which will make #2 even more difficult (luckily I am familiar with the word 'delegate').
Because of all the stress going on here at home, I was especially pleased to open my email this morning and find a new series (4 parts) from Betty AnoninTX. Enjoy:
I have the hardest time ever deciding on something I want for Christmas or my birthday! I have all the Betty Neels books. What else is there? My mother has had a hard and fast rule for years: nothing she has to dust. I've pretty much adopted the same rule, which has resulted in many fabulous Starbucks cards. But this year, as I turned (cough, cough), I knew just what I wanted. I seriously desperately desired a hamper from Fortnum & Mason. I drooled, more times than I can count, over the exportable hampers. I finally picked the "tea experience" one. And, happy belated birthday to me, it came today!
Curiosity almost killed the portly cat.
