Pay it Forward 2007

payitforward.jpgpayitforward.jpgI left a comment on Anne Ida's blog and have now joined in another round of Pay it Forward! It is nearly a year since my last one, so seems right!

 Here are the rules:

It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. You all know I’m already a PIF type of person. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

Does anyone want to receive something from me? It could be one of my handknit bath scrubbies, along with some Irish handmade soap, I'm thinking! The first three who comment and want to play will receive a gift from me within the next 6 months.

Tomorrow is our Irish-American Thanksgiving meal, as it isn't a holiday here we didn't have any days off on Thursday and Friday. I am absolutely smothered with a cold: coughing, sore throat, stuffed up nose...ugh typical! Poor Aisling is pretty bunged up too. I am willing myself to be well enough, as we are the hosts and I don't want to have to call it off!! We have a huge turkey we don't want to waste, lol!! I should be fine, just isn't much fun with a cough so deep it makes your lungs hurt!! Much sitting on the sofa is going to be done today, sewing up my bath scrubbies into their proper shape, nice and easy! The girls and I will try to do some Thanksgiving shaped sugar cookies (turkeys I guess, and a cornucopia...think I got those shapes in a big pack of cutters I got last year...) and I am making some American style biscuits (scones without the sugar). I'm leaving the rest to my husband tomorow.

He is leaving me today to go golfing while I hack up a lung. LOL, he might as well go though, as unless I am asleep, my kids will ask me to do everything anyway even if he did stay home. Mommies just don't get days off unless they are totally out for the count! If you are upright, you are still the go to girl!! Anybody else find it the same?

Anyway, I hope to have a post after our meal with a few more finishes to show, and our Irish Thanksgiving photos!

I need to do my PIF's as well! I have a few to get out.

Yah for turkey! Have a wonderful family day!

Get well soon. I took Jack to the doctor yesterday for his cough. While I was there I was coughing away myself. I told the doctor that my chest really hurt too. She said: "oh".
You're right Mummies have to drop down dead before they get even an iota of sympathy!!

I hope the yukky cold is soon gone and you are feeling better soon. Take care of yourself in the meantime. Happy Thanksgiving across the pond.

Take care of yourself -- and yep, unless you are out cold (and even then they will sometimes WAKE you to do something) mommies just don't get the same kind of "down time". Hope you get to enjoy some of the turkey!

Anne Ida said...

Hi, Thank you for playing along! Hope your cold lifts soon!!!

If it's not too late I'd like to PIF!
Congrats on the DJ! You are my DJ heroin! I only have a few DJ's started, just a few, but then I think I am a DJ addict
