After A Bad Day ......................



Isn't it funny how some days just go from bad to worse?  It all started with me getting a call from Josh today to pick him up as the hospital was being evacuated because of a gas leak.  The streets around the hospital were shut down in a traffic jam and gridlock and I needed an escort from the boys in blue to get through to the ambulance bay to collect him.

The day just went down hill from there ......

When I finally got home I was greeted by 3 parcels from 3 of my pals.  It did make me smile.


Look what sweet Vicki sent me - She's such a darling - She will be coming down for our bloggers weekend in March - I can't wait !!



And my gorgeous pal Maree sent me this adorable little ornament and a lovely embroidered waffle cloth - They are both perfect and your card brought a tear to my eye Maree XXXXXX



My final parcel for today was from the lovely Kerryanne who I guest posted for in her Simply Christmas which is still running over on her blog.  There will be another guest poster tomorrow too - Don't miss it.  She is a very talented girl and I just love my little ornie Kerryanne.



 Aren't my new ornies just gorgeous?




My parcels couldn't have been better timed - They sure did brighten my day



I have them hanging on my vase of twigs


And mistletoe which is in my newly created office corner


Which is where I sit when I come and visit with you. 



And work on my news designs. 

After opening my gifts and visiting some blogs the bad stuff from today seems to be so far away - Isn't blogland wonderful?

Just saw the evacuation on the news, what a relief it wasn't more serious - though a less dramatic way to start the day would have been nicer.

Your office corner is looking great - very workable space.

Love you work place. I could live in that but it wouldn't look like that for long. Hope everything is better now with Josh. We will chat soon Cheers Kez

Your packages couldn't have arrived at any better time. Do you ever kinda panic? You manage to do what is needed, but you keep praying all the time that everything is o.k. I do admire your sons courage and positive attitude. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.
