WEDNESDAYS GREAT BUY

OP SHOP FIND
This morning I was dropping some things off to a local Op(Opportunity) Shop, so I thought I would wander in and see if there was something I might like.
There was a stack of music sheets and books on a table - some pages missing here and there.
No price stickers or tags. Well I thought why not just pick it up and then I'll ask at the counter.
I also saw this cute little (6 inch)Italian made metal frame with a gorgeous sweet faced girl with a basket of roses. At $4 I decided I would have her.
The bargain of the morning was the sheet music.
!!!!........ $2 ..............!!!!
It was my lucky day.
5 DAYS TO GO...............
Amy is now totally sick of herself. The baby is due on Monday. Every time the phone rings I think to myself this is it. Time to rock and roll!!!!!
I have everything up to date so as I can go to her when she rings - well nearly.
Washing, ironing,a couple of dinners made and put into the freezer all done.
Housework - well nearly, once I get off here I will get back to it.

Thanks for visiting, and yes I think Toby will settle down, eventually.Quietly, I think he is enjoying the extra attention, and lapping it up, but thankyou for some reassurance.
The music sheets you bought are a bargain, I actually collect old music books too.My daughter plays piano, but I just love the look of them!Are you musically inclined?

I remember Andres was so late....then the morning I was supposed to be induced I was so excited. Called at 7:00am like they said....and there was proverbally no room at the inn! I burst out in tears! My dr. bribed the nurses with lunch if they would fit me in and viola...baby born! So I know how she feels! Can't wait to see the baby pics!
