Lovely Surprise!

First of all good morning and a gorgeous week to you! Yesterday I had 79 followers and I just found out I lost one :(

Friday morning was in the top 10 bad mornings of recent history. I couldn't open the safe for dear life. I tried 15 times at least....and no opened safe means no cash register, no debit machine, I.E I couldn't open the postal counter of UNjoy...I had help from the head cashier and she couldn't open it either....I had to call and wake up my super nice (no joke) colleague  who works nights and saturdays and she finally guided me and helped me open the !"/$%?&* safe! So I was able to open the postal counter at 9:20. I'm sure I'm going to hear about it this afternoon because EPM is back from vacation. Just thinking about it, my stomach clenches!

However in the afternoon a lady was at the counter asking for me...My first thoughts were 'what did I do wrong now?' Well I didn't do anything wrong it was France from the cool blog I follow Passion of Milk Glass Collecting ! She came over to say hi! I was so glad and surprised to see her! She brought a nice ray of sunshine in a crazy day!

Saturday I was stuck working 9 to 5. This was sooooo boring! Boring really tires me out! Once again at 8 pm I was conked out on the sofa on a saturday night!

Yesterday was my B-day and to tell you the truth I was sooo glad to be home, I didn't want to go out! Dan stayed in pjs all day, I cooked, I vegged out, ate B-Day cupcakes, took a nap...I tell you I was in cocooning heaven!

I also listed a bunch of things in the store, I had a lot of backlog...I found this great tray in the church basement, barely used, with the knife and the original box, it came from Consumer's (Distribution aux Consommateurs). That chain of stores was all accross Canada and closed in the late 90's. I used to love that store! You would go in, fill out an order form with those little dinky pencils, give it to a clerk and they would fetch the merchandise for you. I'm sure France and Erin you remember those guys.

A true gem for the store!

So that was my weekend! I haven't forgotten about the giveaway dear readers, I will have the results tomorrow morning at the latest!

Have a great day!

Great stories, great finds. Happy belated birthday to you! I lost a follower on one of my other blogs once and I was all like, "Was it something I said?" Strange. Anyway, congrats all round. You're the Martha Steward of good living in Quebec. I mean that in the best way possible. Now get back to your workers and tell them what to do. LOL

P.S. So funny you should mention Consumer's Distributing. My husband and I were JUST talking about that store last week. It was a bit weird shopping there, but we actually bought a lot of stuff at CD over the years and we kind of miss it now.

Happy Birthday to you! Cocooning sounds like a perfect way to spend the day. (As a matter of fact, that's what I'm doing today. It's raining! FINALLY!)

Bonne anniversaire mon ami!

Happy Birthday! Yesterday was my best friend's birthday too- which I recalled at 9:45 PM. Nice eh?

Well, I'm glad you had a good cozy day at home. I saw your pink butter print over at the Pyrex Collective. Score!

Happy Birthday. What wonderful gifts you gave yourself, and you'll feel much better for it. I love your finds. We had Consumer's here in the States, too. Funny, I was just thinking about that place the other day. Happy VTT!
