Ladies, start your engines.

Are we all bursting with excitement for the shopping day tomorrow? I know I'm looking forward to it.

On to some minor changes....
-I have changed one of the store on the list, we will no longer be going to Franke Stuart, it closes too early and I feel we would better off visiting Astratex on lennox st in Richmond as they are having a 50% off sale this week only. Trust me, if you like high quality Italian fabrics, you need to visit this store. They have this sale twice a year only.
Amanda, Belle and I popped in late this afternoon, I was insisting that I was going to drop them off, and leave for my baby appointment, I stayed for the entire visit, it was a lovely store with great stock.
Amanda fell in love with some beautiful dove grey wool angora fabric which she left behind, I did try to get her to buy it however she foiled my evil plans!
-We are taking 3 cars for the day, Rachel, Melaine and myself will be driving, it would be a very nice gesture if you offer your driver some petrol money. :)
-Melaine is leaving us for dinner, she has a hot date :P, so if you are in her car you will need to find your way back to GJ's if thats where you have left your car, I am happy to take people back on my way home, but as I'm pregnant and I get tired easily, this maybe earlier than you might like.
