I truelly recommend you to all see it. My favourites would have to be the didgaredo (sp?), the g string, the women and the hairy tounge. way too funny. Here is a pic of us girls with the boys... Sorry to disappoint but they have clothes No photos were allowed during the show....

A better day.

Well it seems my house hunting has improved. I had a look at a unit today, stunning but only 1 problem.... no back yard and little expensive so after work I had a look at another.... It was lovely. Not as nice as the 1st one but it has potential. BUT i had a look on the net and there it was, my friends house is on the rent market. I was going to rent it a year ago but things happened so I was straight on the phone. AND it has a great little family room that would suit us so well. Fingers crossed for me....
I also completed a layout for a friend on the Embellished site last night. She said she cried when she saw it. I hope good tears.
The journalling is behind the pic and reads...
Ali, you are such an inspiration not only in your creative scrapbook style but just for being the person you are.I take my hat of to you for dedication 2007 to raise money for a charitable organisation"BEYOND BLUE"who help people through depression and mental illness. The fact that you have the initiative to create such a fund raiser, to encourage and inform others to also support such a wonderful organisation shows what passion, dedication and encouragement you as a person portray. I hope your mission is what you hope it to be. I dedicate this to you...' Admire the moon. Be silly, Take risks. Look on the bright side. Listen to your heart. Don't fear love. Remember it's never too late. Share! Don't run, face your fears. Be an optimist. Open a new window. Laugh often! ha ha Live today! Speak straight and true. Reach out! take time Be brave. Life's to short to be ordinary.'
If you want to know more about Beyond Blue go to or got to the website where you can place a donation there.
Heres a bit of fun for you all...
and this is my little chic...

Over it !!

Ok, I am officially pissed off... I am so over house hunting. Everything decent is way out of my price range and the houses i look at SUCK!!! 25 days and i've got nothing, zip, zero....jack sh#t!! The house I looked at today was sooo tiny and really disappointing. Its amazing how they can photo alter pics cos they must do it.
Well on another note my X is in hospital having his appendix out. Worse case, I tell him I'm moving .I'm sure that would go down a treat.
Well I'm off to pick up a million marbles and a 1000 match box cars. Hopefully my house hunting luck will change soon.

back to the drawing board.

Well house hunting sucked!!! The area I want to live in there is nothing available or way out of my price range. The houses I looked at today started off ok but got worse as I went along. I have 1 more to look at on Monday and I hope its what I need. Its that 1 on 10 acres but the 1 thing that concerns me is its only 2 bedrooms. If that isn't ok then I'm back to square 1. Less than a month... wish me luck... i will be praying to my angels for a bit of help i think....
Any way, why am I so tired. The healthier I eat the more tired I feel. I thought it was supposed to be the other way around, and Im going to bed early. Its such a great day to snuggle on the couch and watch a movie.... drizzling outside, cold and very dark and cloudy.....and next week will be a full week of 30's.... melbourne weather does really suck....
Oh yeah, lost almost a kilo my first week. Its a start and if I can do that everyweek, I will be happy in no time.

house hunting today

house hunting today, wish me luck.....

mowed out

I am sooo tired. I got up this morning and started looking for houses and got side tracked from the time... 9.15 and blaine is still asleep an d we have to leave for swimming ayt 9.30... so a mad dash and got there in time. I have neglected the gardening for ages so todays plan was to mow. After 1000 attempts to get the bloody thing going, I mowed, then I weeded, and tidyed and after 3 hours flatout i hopped into a lovely shower. I had a look at 2 places. the first was ok but not available until late March which is too late, and the 2nd was ok, but not my area and the rooms were so tiny. There is a 10 acre place in upper Beaconsfield I want to see so I thought Id go for a drive. Not that I could see the place from the road, its in an area that I could call home.... has a real country feel and so peaceful. 1st thing is to ring the real estate again and find out whats going on. It looks as if it was a gallery of some sort, how awesome would that be if it had a gallery....perfect for scrapping hey girls... i feel a retreat coming Anyway, I promised mum I would mow her lawn, so I went to her place, cooked the best bolognaise ever, was so choked with yum.... so then i mowed her lawn, then I mowed my sisters... my arse is feeling every muscle and man, did I need a soak in the tub after that.

our 1st entry

Well its been a little while since I've posted, thats because nothing exciting has happened. I have cleaned the garage so now I can start packing, I joined weight watchers with a friend....I weighed in at a wopping 102.3 kilos.... and what makes it so bad i guess is they predict my ideal weight to be between 50 and 62 kilos..... can any of you see me ever being that small.... not on your life. I'd be happy to hit 80, even happier to hit thats my goal. Not too unrealistic but enough of a challange. It took me 2 hours to grocery shop on the weekend cos I had my point calculator in hand and worked out every bloody point on everything I picked up. This weeks agenda is house hunting. I'd better find something and soon..... 4 weeks...wholey crap. I manamged to squeeze in a CC on Embellished over the weekend and did a card and 4 layouts... thats an effort in its self. Will pop them into my gallery soon.
Well here is the 1st of many entries (i hope) for the competion..
Don't forget there is a $25 voucher up for grabs just for doing what you love, Scrapping.
Very funny Michele, oh and I love the Come on girls.... Send me your layouts.......
