Thinking of my Boys!

good morning!

it's a fresh and crispy cool morning here
and very beautiful
with sparkly frosty bits
and blue skies.

my mr w slipped through the pay system
at work last week
i got a phone call this morning
to say
he hadn't eaten all weekend
and was 7 km from work
hoping he had enough petrol to make it there...
as mum's need to do in a crisis
i'm running to the bank this morning
just as soon as it opens!

have you ever been called up like this?

another son
is snuggled up in bed still,
next to this...

my husband and his boss drink this brand of stuff
every day at work.
mr w would get his bosses labels and his own
and send them off.
we received four..yes 4 towels from them
over the life of the giveaway.

they are not very thick ones
but are soft and velvety
and make a great cushion cover!

i took a few inches off either side,
wrapped it around the cushion insert
secured it with sewn in bits of velcro..
easy peasy!

the ads said that 'things go better with'..this brand
so mr p
will be sleeping like a!
{he's allowed to this's his day off}

i'll let you know how mr m went...

i'm on my way!

to all you superwomen out there
saving your corners of the universe...

have a supercharged monday!
{with no kryptonite in sight...}
