Saturday 17 th May 2014...




I tried to post this last night but for some reason I could not from my iPad... so here it is now!!

Let me tell you what it is...

Well see obviously its a ticket to see James Blunt in concert!! But the reasoning behind it...

I really like his music and its the one person I really wanted to see live ever since I started listening to him...

I have been to live concerts with my daughter before to see The Script ... lol twice now!  and Peter Andre... but always wanted to see James Blunt.

I did not even know he was touring in our area!! My daughter bought the tickets in secret and was going to give them to me for my birthday present.

The reason I was given them last night was for 2 reasons... so she says!! ha ha  To see my reaction!!  And well she gave me this cryptic message....

You can have your birthday gift now but you have to wait until later to have it!  

I ask you what on earth!!  I was really puzzled as I could see she was holding something behind her back!!  So me being me said... hmmm ok could I have it now!!  Of course I would!!

She handed it to me and I opened the piece of paper and well OMG!! I just screamed!! I could not believe it!! Shocked!!  And then yes the tears came as I could not believe Hannah had bought me a ticket to see James Blunt!  Oh dont worry she bought a ticket too so we can both go!! 

I am over the moon ha ha  here is a poster of his tour.. we are going to the Brighton Centre one!!  Sure I have to wait until November to see him but what a birthday present!! 

Happy dancing!!  :)

Oh yes the FNSI hmmm yes I did take part... I did stitch a fair bit but I cannot show you all... suck a let down I know.  I assure you I stitched a lot...see its for the Christmas in July swap and I dont want to post a picture as my surprise partner will know what I am stitching! hmm shame as I am really enjoying stitching it.  I will post the photos when I can!

Well on the stitching front... I have been stitching but as its for Christmas in July swap I cannot show you until much later!!  As I explained in my FNSI ...

OH MY!! The post man has just been and brought me some Happy Post!! I am so happy right now I could scream!! Yes again!! lol

A little while ago I found a wonderful design that Blue Ribbon Designs do.. its just perfect and I tried everything to buy it 'cheaply'... I say cheaply as its the postage/shipping that costs the most.  

I put it to the back of my mind thinking I would buy it when I had some spare money.... 

Then this morning the post man came.... I opened the packet and look!!!

Words cannot express what I am feeling right now.. just... that I am really happy and cannot believe someone took time to send this to me.

The person who was ever so lovely and sent this to me is Starr Sarrazin .. Thank You xx

On with the stitching....

Smiles to you all :)
