Mid Year already....

Wow how fast has this year gone? School holidays are here and I feel so guilty that I am not home with my child. I believe that I should be home with him and not putting him here and there so I can work. I would give up work in a second so I can stay home with him. I think I will put in for xmas holidays so I am home looking after him. Bugger it!!! Time for a holiday weather the boss likes it or not. I am taking a day off mid week each week to take him out. I think this Wednesday we will go to Phillip Island to Amazing Things and the nature park, then out for dinner along the beach at the little white Italian place in the main street then go and watch the penguins come in and head home. The following Wednesday we are heading of to Soverign Hill as they will have snow too, so to kill 2 birds with 1 stone so to speak. Thanks to Fleur, she is taking the boys to space kids tomorrow so thanks honey, I really appreciate it like you wouldnt believe.
Not a lot happening in my world. Its my sisters birthday today, she turns 29 on the 29th. She wanted her kids schools pics framed so i did that for her and also brought a memory board and filled with pics of her kids and the nieces and nephews all in sepia. I must say it looked real classy. We went there for fish and chips so nothing exciting. I might organise something for her 30th next year considering i paid for my borthers 18th, 21st and his engagement and i dont think i have done anything for her. She loves hunchbaxs so i think that might be the go.
Im trying to put some puzzle pieces together and i must say they are doing my head in. I might give it up and try another day. I do have 1 verse, just need to work out the finished format. They are coming girls, I promise.
Friday night i had a linen party and for a small group i did pretty well. I ended up getting a Q doona set, sheet and pillow cases, as well as a set for Blaine for $100. I save $170 so thanks girls for coming and those who placed orders.
Dont forget we arre having a girls night on the 11th. We are going out to the movies and dinner so please i would love it if you could come. Only 116 days until the Retreat and i am getting excited about that too. I really need to get so many things done before the time has crept up on me and bites me on the arse......
Lots of new goodies are in store and more arriving in the next few days and the following week so keep your eyes open for that.
We are up to round 7 on the DT search. Only 1 more round until the end ad the decsion making is going to be very hard. I have decided to ask a few girls to help me on the decision with their views and opinions. I have received to applications so far and waiting on a few more.

It never rains it pours...

So true in all aspects.... Winter has certainly hit here in Melbourne with plenty of wind and rain. This weather brews a nice round of Flu as well. Luckily we have just got a bit of a cough and some sniffles and hopefully it passes quickly. Probably doesn't help when I had to change a puncture in the bloody wet cold weather on Friday.
I got my new washing machine on Friday and wow 8 kilos is very big. Didnt realise that at all until i did a load of towels and i still had plenty of room. But all I have done is "oh wow" every time I try something new on it. Im like a kid in a toy shop. Well now the washine machine is replaced I now have to get a new freezer. It just stopped working so will start saving for a new fridge freezer side by side. I had to throw out all of the food and I was so mad about that. This is what I chucked out.

We have had a pretty quiet weekend here. Friday night was cybercrop night. Another pretty quiet night of chat but the gallery is looking amazing. Check out the cybercrop section for the challenges. You still have until midnight tomorrow to get your entries in. Here are 2 layouts i did for it.

Saturday night we went to the drive in with Sarah and Michele and their families and saw Speed Racer. Must say it was average and the kids werent impressed either. We ended back at Micheles for a chat and a very very late night. Today was sleep in day. Rolled out of bed at 10, had something to eat, checked my emails and was back in bed at noon to 2pm. How bad is that. Even Blaine spent pretty much the day in bed. Poor bugger has a very chesty cough. So roast dinner and plenty of Krispy Kreames and now off to scrap a little more after Ive done the dishes.
I have done lots of pages but cant share them all just yet but i have done all the examples for the DT page maps comp so please with myself for being organised. Even done the design sketch 1 too. We are currently up to round 5 and the talent is outstanding. Here are the sketches and my examples for this round.

And here is some other layouts I have done.

Well I better be off to put the boy to bed and get into some serious scrapping. Until next time... Keep on chatting.

goggs on blog!!

Check out my little spunk.......

Dont you think he looks gorgeous.... I am biest but I do. The boys at school think he is pretty cool, and his teacher has been calling him a little spunk but the girls are so forward with the compliments. Im sure they will get used to it.
Not only did Blaine get glasses but I have had a battle with a white fluffy animal, actually black muddy filthy animal I should say. You will know what i mean when you see the pics. I spent Saturday at the pet shop trying to come with a solution for Lilly to stop digging, so $20 later i come home with a tub of stay off. It worked for the afternoon and thats it. After I put soil down, sown some grass seed and layed down the stay off this was the result.....

The next whole she digs will be her own..... Little bugger
Thanks to Fleur for holding my Stamping Up party on Sunday and thanks to Michele, Sarah, Nina, Dordy, Sharon, Jacqui, and Sandie for making the day a special one. I hope you all had fun.
Round 4 of the page maps competition is now up and the gallery is chock a block of fabulous work. here is the sketch and my sample for this round.

and here's 1 i did this week....
Well thats about it for now. Long weekend this weekend, so hopefully i get something productive done. I have a tupperware party to go toso I hope i can control myself and if the weather is ok, I wouldnt mind taking Blaine out but i guess i will wait and see. Until next time.... keep on chatting and take care....
