A Baby Shower For A Beautiful Niece

Wow I have had a busy Friday no surprise there as all Fridays are busy for me but yesterday afternoon I agreed to pick Little Leo up from day care and drive him home so it was around 5.30pm before I could really relax, I did manage to read about 10 blogs yesterday but didn't get back to my blog to read all the great comments I had till this afternoon.

Today I went to a baby shower for my beautiful niece Samantha, Jessica was going to come with me but when she got her she was crying and complaining that she had a headache and was just so tired as she had been up since 4am with Leo. So being me I told her to go and have a sleep while I took Leo with me to the baby shower.

Now I couldn't remember the address for the baby shower so I went to mums place but mum had already left so then I went to my sisters place and she gave me the address then I went and called in to see Natasha and made sure she knew were to go and she said she did and that she would come with me so I took her and Blain with me.

There was a good turn out of people from Sam's family as well as from her partner "TommyLee" family. I made sure everyone had presents for her becuase that is what I do and when I got home I settled down to read some more blogs I only got through around 8 or 10 before I left then I read all my comments and then read some more blogs then I went and had a nice hot bath and now I am writing this.

Tim left this morning for work at 7am so he should be home around 5 or 6pm thankfully it has stopped raining and I hope it is fine tomorrow as well as I have washing to do but since I was out for half the day I decided to do the washing tomorrow. I am also going to do a chicken pasta dish for lunch,so I am now ringing Kathy then Natasha and letting them know in case they want to come.

Oh Jo-Anne, I do love the chatty style of your writing. It's as if you are there in the room talking to me! We've all said this before, but you really are such a warm, loving and caring person my friend. Always making sure that everyone has a present to give and other kind things like that. I hope you manage to get a little rest over the weekend, as you must take care of yourself too!

Don't forget to take care of yourself, my friend, in the midst of all you do to care for others.
