A winner and some blog neglect

Firstly, a winner.  I held a random draw, and the lucky peggy giveaway goes to Rachel L from Contented over in the UK.  Rachel’s favourite stationery is notepaper, the type you write a good old fashioned letter on. I have a hand full of the wooden pegs along with a couple of even smaller gold pegs I found yesterday to send her.  I am sure a few other little curios will find their way into the package as well.  I will give you all a look at what I send, once I know exactly what it is.

Lately I have been really neglecting my blog, and even worse, I have not been replying to comments.  I feel terrible about it.  Yesterday the penny dropped as to why it was all getting too hard.  That dropping penny was a bunch of flowers.

When I pulled up in the driveway yesterday afternoon, and saw them on the doorstep, my first thought was “The delivery truck must have stopped at the wrong house” as it was not a special day of any kind.

It turns out that the flowers were from my hubby’s boss.  Basically they were an apology for keeping him at work so much lately (last few months), and leaving me with the brunt of the work (and child rearing) on the home front.  Quite a thoughtful touch wasn’t it.  It has been hard, but until yesterday I hadn’t realised how much it was getting to me.  Lately I haven’t even been reading all your blogs,  I have been just too exhausted.  I will eventually reply to your comments, at least the recent ones.  Please accept my apologies if you have left a comment that I have not responded to it.  I also owe my blog roll an update, there are so many blogs I read that are not on there.

At the end of next week we are off to a family wedding in Brisbane followed by a family holiday on the Gold Coast, so I am sure we will be much more relaxed, and recharged after that.

  1. Thank you Claire!
    What a lovely thought from your hubby’s boss. It’s always lovely to receive flowers unexpectedly like that, but I hope things get back to normal for you soon.
    🙂

  2. I hear you Claire! There have been times when it doesn’t even feel as if Julian lives here! I hope Luke is home more now – at least his boss recognises the demands he has made. Now – your weekend in Brisbane – you must let me know if you have an hour or two for tea or patchwork!

  3. Wow. That is the sweetest thing. How nice that a boss would consider the strain that working extra hours would have on other members of the family. Nice touch…….Enjoy your time away!
