Getting older.

September 8, 2008 at 5:20 pm 1 comment

When I was little, time was something that dragged on, everything was SO far assway, my birthday was eons from christmas, I might have been on the earthm wanting to get to the moon

Age gives me another perspective. 

My eldest daughter moved out of home over 2 months ago.

Two weeks ago, my third son turned 5, this Saturday, second daughter is 11, and two days later second son turns 16 (he will be away at school “camp”, the Gold Coast, Queensland)

It seems a short time ago I was giving my second son his 5th birthday present, shortly after I had given birth to my daughter.

Miss nearly three wants to use the toilet, miss 20 months wants to do the same thing her big sister does.

My “babies” are growing up far too fast!!

….and soon it will be Christmas.  I bought 4 sets of presents today……getting ahead of the game

I have 4 quilts queued up to quilt on the short arm, so that’s the next thing to do.

….oh, and I was supposed to have master 5’s quilt finished for his birthday……and two more finished for this weekend……..

time isn’t getting away from me, not even flying, it is going at lightspeed!!  LOL

have made a little progress on the “Insanity” quilt, added another 30 hexagons.


I have a LOT of fabric on hand
all my children are healthy
I can finish quilts easily
children are looking forwards to their birthdays
we can afford their wants
