I know, I've been completely slack since getting back from my little jaunt. So onto the give of my giveaway.
Thank you for all your guesses. I'm sorry I couldn't post these pictures from my iPad to give you all visual clues.
The correct answer to where I was, was Sydney, Australia.
Within the timeframe I needed your guesses there were two ladies who said Australia, so I bought a little goodie for each of you. So Leanne and Angie ping me your deets and I'll post off your little prezzie.
It was a trip I never dreamed I'd be taking, but one I'm so, so pleased I took. I had less than 12 hours notice that I was going. On the Wednesday night my husband suggested I go to my very dear friend and mentor's 60th birthday party that was happening in Sydney on the Saturday!
So after a flurry on "Tintin's web" I booked a flight that was leaving Thursday morning and arriving Friday night in Sydney. Our girls were unaware I was going till I woke them in their beds with kisses as I was heading out the door for the airport. They were pretty surprised, but then having a Mum like me you'd think they were used to surprises all the time.
I swear that I'm storing up years of them going twice weekly to see a shrink because of the trauma I've done to them growing up. We won't be able to afford Uni or get them married off, because we'll be paying for them to lie on that shrinks couch for years.
But I digress.
I arrived back a couple of weeks ago exhausted. Two flights, an 11hr stopover in Singapore and having been awake since 1am the day I left Sydney! I now know why they use sleep deprivation as a form of torture, I would have confessed to anything after that trip. Even killing Kennedy, though I wasn't even born when he was taken out.
Since getting back I've joined the Brit Quilt Swap and my partner is...Oh I forgot, it's a secret!
I was also having a place held for me on the In the Frame Purse Swap and have started on my partner's purse.
I'm also busy chopping fabric and making a flock of geese for the lovely Trudi whose month it is for our Brit Bee.
Hope you're all having a fab day where ever you are. Have any of you ever done off the wall trips that swept you off your feet unannounced but that turned out fantastic?
Thanks so much for peeping at my little blog
