Grumpy me but...Give Away!

Well hello my lovely blogging friends, I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. Mine has been rather mixed to be honest. I was absolutely looking forward to it. My bestest friend and my Brother arrived on Friday afternoon and they came straight to the kiosk as the boys had Taekwondo. We then spent the night ordering Chinese and laughing until our sides were hurting. Until my husband arrived home and gave me the news that he had quit his job!!! I could not believe it. I still can't. My mind is racing with 1001 thoughts that I could never put into words. I would love to say that it was because of a really good reason but it wasn't he had just had enough of the place! I am heart-broken, I honestly am. I was so upset and angry that he had just done it with no word to me. I have no idea what he plans to do, hopefully get another job but in this climate I don't think he realises how hard that is going to be, also the fact he was a supervisor and on great pay means it will be even more difficult to find a replacement job! So as you can imagine it put a dampener on the weekend to say the least. But after the initial shock I was determined to enjoy the weekend and I have to say last night was one of the best nights ever. It has been years that we have all been together just having a laugh and relaxing.

Anyway that is enough of that, I am not going to let it get to me, I have enough to see the family through and although it will be a struggle until he finds work it is not the end of the world.

Now as you may have noticed I have been wrist warmer crazy but I have finally finished the last of the families so now I can concentrate on pairs for the fayre.

Now for the more important part of this post. I did mention in a previous blog that when I reach 50 followers I will have a give away, well the time has come. As I write this I have 52 followers so welcome to all the new people following my ramblings. I wasn't sure what to give away or how to do it but I have decided to show you some of what will be sent to the winner of the give away.
Because I am having the give away to show appreciation to ALL my followers you do not need to leave a comment or anything EVERYONE who follows will go into the hat and the draw will take place next week.

Like I said there will be a few more items to go into the parcel but for now these items will be winging their way to the winner, so GOOD LUCK all.
Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and now I am going to get a cuppa and read through all your lovely blogs xxxx

Big hugs

  1. Everything happens for a reason....try to stay positive :) By the way, keep your eye on the postie as a parcel should be winging its' way to you if you haven't already had it. I got my bum in gear and managed to send off that stuff I promised - I just hope it will be ok for you xx

  2. Ooh I am sorry to hear that.
    Smile, the sun will shine again!!
    With good thoughts and work and effort, everyone is able to go on.
    My best wishes to you!

  3. Too bad about being worried but honestly if he hated the job that bad, health wise he will be the better for it. He'll find another and together you'll cope. Keep smiling!

  4. Try not to worry too much I'm sure your husband will find another job soon. Lovely wrist warmers by the way.

  5. Maybe it was a blessing you had such good company when your Hubby dropped that particular bombshell.
    Yay for a giveaway!
    Hopes I wins!!

  6. I know axactly how you feel, my OH did the same, came home one saturday night and told me he had handed his keys to the pub back and would not be working there anymore (i could have easily strangled him)
    Lovely wristwarmers, gorgeous colours. I am away to knit some for myself as they look very cozy and I HATE gloves with fingers :)

  7. I hope things work out. Men sometimes bottle things up. Sounds like you're not one to let things get to you, good on ya!

  8. I'm a firm believer that a positive always comes from a negative even if we don't know it at the time...
