Two for me

 This is what happens, I get e-mails from on-line shops about their current sales and I have a bit of a browse and then I delete the e-mails. Sometimes there are quite good sales worth going to the shops and picking out an item or two. Target happened to be one of them as it's 40% off all dresses this weekend!!! I normally try on dresses when they have 20% off but I don't buy them. Call me stingy or whatever but I really only buy a dress when I feel it's worth it. That being said, I don't have many nice dresses in my wardrobe so I set about changing that this morning.

So with all the kids dressed I drove down to the shopping centre just after 9am to beat the crowds. I picked out about 5 dresses to try on and headed off into the change room. I had to let them all in with me in the change room and leave the pram outside. The 18mth old decided it was not for him and cried the ENTIRE time I was trying on dresses. The eldest, my 6yr old daughter was singing and my almost 5yr old boy was crying because I stopped him from opening the door. Let's just say it was rather horrid and loud and I couldn't wait to leave.

I picked out these two dresses though. The top one is a nice navy one which would be good for work. I did try the lace peplum one but she thought it wasn't colourful enough and I agreed with her. Miss 6 really liked the fake wrap one (pictured) and I will probably wear it tonight at a pre-wedding party we are going to. They ended up only being $35.40 each so what a bargain they were! I love you Target.

I grabbed the nearest food distraction (Cadbury Favourites) to tide over the little ones while I waited in line to pay for them along with a white Christmas t-shirt for our St Vincent de Paul Hamper drive next Monday. I like to look festive. I hope you found some goodies this Christmas season.

May God bless your weekend.

* Stay tuned for a book give-away next.

Invisible zipper foot - Birch

I thought I might shed some light on the invisible zipper foot. I bought a Birch model from Spotlight and it came in a little plastic bag with four blue shanks and a rolling foot.

First I removed the standard foot from my Janome sewing machine (Sewist 521). I realised I still needed to remove the shank, which is the part that is screwed on, and holds the interchangeable feet. So with one hand holding the screwdriver and one hand holding my daughter, who just had to watch, it popped out disappeared somewhere. NO! I was about to kick myself but luckily I found it in the basket underneath my table. Phew.

The Birch invisible zipper foot comes with one shank already in place so you know how it's suppose to fit. You have to select the correct shank that fits your machine and slide it onto the foot piece.

I just tried each blue part on my machine and made sure it was wide enough to cover the metal leg bit and that I could fit the screw in it's side. Once you find the correct shank slide…

The cutest labels - Hippo Blue

This is my youngest daughter Jacquie. Jacquie is 3, turning 4 very soon and goes to day care once a week. She also has speech therapy once a week and bad mummy packs her food in plastic bags and old lunch boxes and scribbles her name on paper labels. 
Jacquie is very happy today because she's sporting a brand new lunch box which has her name imprinted on it and it was made by Hippo Blue. Jacquie is in dire need of special name labels and that is where Hippo Blue saved my day and made everything look pretty. Hippo Blue made up a batch of their Vinyl Label Variety pack and I could not be more pleased. I've had other labels before and these ones are quite impressive. Why? well because there's a lot more variety. I like how there are different sizes so I can plaster her name on all her pieces she needs for day care and school.
Did you see those cute footprint stickers? They're shoe stickers. How cool! We also recieved round dots and new square ones which I've never se…

Laser Eye Surgery

< feeling sleepy Blogger doesn't like any of my camera pictures at the moment so I can't show you the pictures taken while I was having my eye's lasered. Here are the pics that Blogger decided it would upload of my eye surgery. I finally decided not to wait any longer and after I saw an advertisement at the local medical centre for the Sebban Eye Centre I decided to see if I was a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. The check only takes 30mins and boy was I glad to hear that I was! I booked an appointment the very next day but I had to still wait 6weeks.
< during the laser!
A week has passed now and I still have slightly blurry vision since having TransPRK or Advanced Surface Laser. Sometimes when I use the saline drops I have clear vision even from the kitchen to the lounge which is fantastic. I just wish it would hurry up so I can get on with things. I have to have IE at 125% otherwise I find it hard to read and I haven't been on the net for a few days now…
