my post for today 8.5.16

It's Mothers Day today, I hope that all you mums out there are having a great time with your families. Family is sooooo important - near or far, it is wonderful that technology keeps us in contact with each other, and I have had lots of messages from afar.  I was taken out to lunch by my wonderful eldest daughter yesterday and it was sooo nice. As we are both really busy and work different shifts it is great to catch up when we can. 
This morning I am on my cricut again trying out new things - will see how they turn out as to whether I put photos on here or not. It is a quiet day in our household, hubby at work and grandson sleeping - he is working nights so sleeps days. It gives me some time to potter in my craft room and give it a clean up ready for class's next week. 

Went and saw the movie 'God's Not Dead 2" last week and am going again this afternoon with a friend - if you have not seen it do try and go - it is a great movie and well worth seeing - hence I am going for the 2nd time. I often feel that for me I get more out of a good movie when I see it again. It is based on a true story and these kind of movies always appeal to me. This is one that I will watch for the video to come out and purchase it.

Great grand son - 6 years old- had a teddy that he loves and unfortunately teddy lost an eye - I am ok with card crafts but no good with giving teddies new eyes, so off to my dear friend who knows everything about those sorts of things and yesterday we went and picked up teddy with a lovely new set of eyes!!! GGSon was soooo pleased and proud. A HUGH big thank you to Anne for a wonderful job and a happy little boy.

I have got (or at least borrowed from my sister) a soup maker. Well over the last couple of weeks it has run every single day!! what a wonderful machine! I spent an hour or so chopping up vegs of all sorts and popping them into containers in the fridge. I come out - take a handful of each veg and put into the Soup Maker, press the button and wha lar in 20 min I have a lovely meal. Soooo easy and sooo nice, especially on the nights that are a little cooler now. Oh and it also makes a great hot chocolate too!!

Question time: why is it that a parcel sent from Auckland to Palmerston North takes over a week and a parcel from UAE takes 3 days!!! Same going the other way - I sent a package to Rae and it takes about 4 - 5 weeks, she sends one to me and it takes 3 - 4 days!! how can that be? 
I guess the main thing is that the package arrives in the end.
I am off to have a tidy up of my craft table now and cut some more from by beloved Cricut.
Hope you all have a lovely day.
