This Made Me Smile


Look what my local newsagent has been up to this week. "Skillage".... as my almost teenage son would say! I stood there, admiring it, partying on the inside.... and then reality struck.... and I headed off to Woolies to do the grocery shopping.

I am going to put my head down for the next few days and knock over 2 assignments by Monday...out, out damned subject... c'mon A-M, just do it.

Have a great weekend. Miss you already.
Back Monday.

  1. I think I would have screamed out loud and told everyone that passed! I know you aren't a braggart but maybe just this once! Good luck on your assignments! Try to have a great weekend!

  4. How did you manage to sneak into the newsagents with no-one seeing you, A-M? Great job though, very stealthy of you!!!K xx

  5. Yeah, I know, I know, A-M. Even I wanted to tell my local newsagent that I "knew" you and the house. (Be of good cheer, the Next One will be just as spectacular, and we all can't wait to travel with you on an amazing journey.)

  7. Don't you just love seeing your home in all of it's glossy glory on those pages?! There is nothing quite like opening up a magazine and having your home jump right out at you! Now get back to work girlie! ;)

  12. How ever did you control yourself - I do like that idea of a magazine signing though. Have a wonderful weekend and a successful assignment. Leanne x PS. Keep meaning to as which Freedom sofa is in the picture and are you happy with it - still searching for furniture to finish off my house!

  13. Got my magazine last night but haven't opened it yet as I picked up 2 more grandchildren last night and they go to their Dad's tonight so I will sit down and read the magazine then (oh for the peace and quiet and a little read)

  15. A-M you have to go back to the newsagent and ask for the poster when they have finished with it. It's not everday you have your house on a poster. Imagine it framed and tucked somewhere in the pantry where you could go in a do a happy dance every now and then with no one looking.

  16. Nice one A-M! That newsagent knows true gorgeousness needs to be shared I reckon! Best of luck getting through your assignments, then enjoy your weekend!

  25. I've been so busy lately I've hardly kept up with the blogs I follow at all. I've popped in here and there but somehow I missed that you were selling your house!!! I tried to get all caught up but I'm not finding why you are selling and what your plans for the future are?! Did I miss it or have you not shared that. I cannot imagine leaving the beautiful house and that dreamy pool. LOVE LOVE it all. but maybe you built knowing you would sell this?
    Blessings on all future house building, can't wait to come along for the ride!!
