"Mum, can you do me a big favour? Can you get a present for a friend's 21st? I'll pay you back!"
Famous last words?! So off I went, not knowing what on earth to get. A few unreplied text messages later and I ended up at my favourite shop where I bought a gift voucher and a gorgeous photo frame for the birthday girl.
Needless to say, when the boy got home, the gifts got the stamp of approval, which shocked me no end. But I felt good.... there was my pay-it-forward deed for the day.
By this time it was 4 o'clock. So much for my self-indulgency. I turned on the tv and set up the dvd, picked up my cross stitch and started to stitch away, breathing deeply and satisfied I could now enjoy myself. Half an hour or so later, hubby comes home...."what's for tea?"
I can honestly say I'm enjoying the process and loving how it's turning out. I'm nearly there.....
I love spending my stitching time with my like-minded FNWF friends. Thanks to Cheryll for another great night.
....and if you're still wondering, no I haven't been paid back for the gift yet.....do you think I ever will?
xox sugary hugs :o)
