I’m on holidays!

A couple of weeks ago I spent a day at my sister’s gift shop playing around with all the yummy things she has there!
After working for 2 full days I owed her $225!!!!! How does that happen?? It might be something to do with the four pieces of gorgeous clothing I brought home or the hat I bought for DNo 1 or the mat for the beach house….
I have some quick pictures I took of some displays to share with you. Each time I work there I think I’m going to take some really lovely photos but I just don’t get time. My last few hours are spent running around finding homes for the last few things that really don’t have a home!!
I just love the colours of these cushions…..the cute outdoor chairs are just like the ones I sat on at school!!!

I have decided to enrol in another course for work. Just filling in the self assessment was hard work…225 questions which I’m sure could have been condensed into about 30, I’m sure!! All is good though, I have been accepted and also been lucky enough to receive funding for the whole course so no out of pocket expenses. I’ve been busy trying to get my portfolio sorted. Busy times ahead!
I have finished work today for our mid year holidays. I’m painting my office tomorrow and looking after my gorgeous little 9mth old granddaughter next week for 6 days!!
Until next time…..

I had to laugh at you owing your sister money! I worked a few days in a friends shop and I also spent more than I made. The shop looks wonderful and I can see why you owed her money. Thanks for joining the Open House Party.
