Cardmaking,  Family Life,  Home Decorating,  Scrapbooking

What have I been up to?

Mum turned 69 on Friday and we went to the new Library Square Brasserie.  The two hour wait was a bit much, but the meals were divine and well worth the wait.

Happy 69th Birthday Mum

Last night I did these two pages with some new products from 3 Bugs in a Rug at the Scrapbook Fantasies Super Saturday Crop…

I have realised that I have created 157 cards so far this year, and I have been mostly so busy that I haven’t shared them here.  I will definately have to remedy this situation.

I had an absolute ball at the Scrapbook Fantasies Retreat at Kinka Beach last weekend.  I taught two classes to the 57 Scrappers in just two sessions of two hours each, what a blast and everyone seemed happy with the results. (sneak peeks are on their way when I am at work next)

I have to say a huge thank you to my family, friends and everyone who attended…you are all the reasons that make this event worth the effort and keep me coming back every year.

I didn’t get as exhausted as usual and I have had a pretty healthy week since getting home, which I would attribute to my jaw, headache and posture problems being on the mend.

Milton has been at a Scout camp this weekend and Quentin has just ducked out to collect him from a Wakakirri dress rehearsal at School.

Noah has had a great weekend visiting Bob and Katrina’s new farm twice already and feeding the ‘Gongkeys’ (Donkeys).

Naomi-Jon is proving to be a bit of a mystery at the moment, revealing on Sunday night (whilst coming home from Kinka Beach) that only one of her ears works!  Yes, I was shocked, speechless and completely ashamed of myself for not knowing this piece of vital information.  Anyway we have a hearing check appointment and an allergy testing appointment in the next two weeks.  The allergy testing is just an add-on as her Eczema is just getting worse no matter what we attack it with.

STOP PRESS!  We have been promised that our new entertainment area slab will be completed by next weekend!  Fingers and toes crossed this time.

In preparation our little indoor palm that went wild in the garden had to come out today…

I wanted to share some older pics from my trip to Brissie with Billie in June…we obviously spent a day with Lance from Rusty Pickle and I caught up with my cousin Rosy for dinner as well.
