A Brilliant Weekend!

The weekend is almost upon us, another 12 hours or so if you want to be specific and all that :D And it's that time of the week that I absolutely love. And after the stress and minor depression I went through the past couple of days, the weekend is a welcome relief. And the fact that it's a 3 day weekend does wonders for my morale right now.

My weekend's going to be a pretty busy one. Wifey and me are planning to make the downstairs spare room into a work area for my Dream Themes business venture I'm planning to go into. I've been doing all my work upstairs in our room for my nephews Star Wars themed party this Sunday and both wifey and me hate messing up the room.

We have a spare maids room downstairs and since we don't have a maid, that room has been lying empty so we're going to arrange a few things in there this weekend and make it some sort of work area in preparation for when we do get some orders for birthday party ideas and stuff (*hint, hint* LOL!). Then it's probably out to the DIY store to look at some shower faucets to replace the leaky one in our bedroom.

And on Sunday, I'll probably spend the better half of the morning decorating the birthday venue with the stuff I made for the party. Most of the items are done and I'm just hoping it'll look good. Even though it's going to be a packed schedule, I'm looking forward to it cos it's going to be so much fun :D

And since I've been bitching here quite a bit the past week, I thought I'll spread some cheer instead this time round. About a week or so ago, Blur Ting awarded me with an award and you guys just know how much I love awards ... hehehe ... And today, just as I was about to post this award, I got the same award from Rose. And I would like to acknowledge and thank both BT and Rose for the wonderful Brilliante Weblog award they bestowed upon me.


BT thinks I tell urmmm, brilliant stories (Long winded maybe but brilliant? I'm not too sure of that .. LOL!) and that she can picture me sitting in my rocking chair 40 years from now still telling stories ... hehehe ... BT, the way I feel right now, I don't think I need to wait 40 years for that rocking chair, I'll probably need it in a year or two ... LOL!

And the best part that I like about receiving awards is handing them out again :D And so, in return I bestow this award to the four little kids in the picture below ... hehehe ... If your masthead is there, well, that means you've been awarded the Brilliante Weblog award by me :D And I hope you guys have as great a weekend as I'm going to have :D


Oh and in case it's not clear enough, Shemah, Nessa, Perry and Rozella, that's you out there!
