Singing, winning and some spending too...

Nothing really exciting happening around here. I am officially looking for a new job. Time to move on and the place has gone through some huge changes and its just not big enough for all of us anymore. So fingers crossed for me girls and hope I get the job Im looking for.
Friday was cross country at Blaines school and wow what a difference in results from last year. This year Blaine actually knew whar a race was and he went for it. My little champ come second in the 6 year old boy section and I was proud as punch. Sadly I didnt see it but his Dad was there and he was able to ring me at work and tell me all about it. Here he is with his silver medal.

To celebrate little speedys win we went to Grill'd and boy they have the best burger and chips in the world. We had dinner and then went shopping. I had a PS2 on layby that I finally picked up so we headed home to set it up and play singstar. We played until almost midnight.... time just flew by. So I tucked Blaine into bed and thought I mught just have a little go myself. OMG 2.30 AM and I could of played for hours.

Saturday was house cleaning day, then the arvo I spent a Sam's place for a bodyshop party. On the way home was grocery shopping and take away then home for another round of singstar and some scrapping. I managed to put together a Kaiser Memo Board for the up and coming Fair this week at Blaine's school. Here is how it turned out.

Sunday we puffed around the house in the morning and shopped in the arvo. All Ive done this weekend was shop... (thanks Kev ;) ), but I did manage to get 1 CJ done and working on the other now.... all done... woohoo.

For those in the area, Officer Primary have a country Fair on this Friday from 3.15 - 7pm. Come and enjoy some fun, I will be there so make sure you pop over and say hi.

A puppy update: - Day 12 - They opened their eyes today, they are gorgeous and I want to keep them. Will take more pics later on to show off the balls of fluff. Well Ive got heaps to do and little time to do it so until next time, stay safe and keep on chatting. Dont forget to add yourself to my stalkers list ;) ...

Lots of tears and a little bit of creativity

Well yesturday I spent most of the day doing housework and the evening beside my dog and her puppies. 1 of the puppies wasnt eating and was a different colour to the others, so I tried and tried to get this tiny little bundle eating. But nothing. About midnight last night the poor little mite "tinkerbell" died in my arms. I sat for about an hour crying my eyes out and i felt helpless and responsible. After a late night I went to sleep and woke up this morning to find another puppy had died over night. I was so sad and started worring about the other 2. So after an hour drive to RSPCA I had them checked over. Puppy 1 weighs 260 grams and looks fine but her cord has ripped from her belly so she has a nasty sore that I have to clean through out the day and give her antibiotics. "Thumper" (this puppy is the biggest and boy does she eat) weighs 360 grams and is a bill of health. Im just hoping these 2 little mites will be ok and annoying the crap out of me soon.
Last night Blaine went to the circus with his Paternal Nan and cousins Thomas and Luke. This was a big 1st for him as he has never spent time with her and has only just reunited with his cousins. I had some mixed feelings about this but he came home, said he had a good time but missed me so that made me feel better. Here are a couple of photos he came home with..

After the trip to the vet I created some new Connector Kids OTP from Kaiser to display at Blaine school fair in 2 weeks. I made school kids in Blaines school colours and I so love how they turned out.

So that was my weekend. Well best I go and do a few things before I settle for the night. Until next time stay safe and keep on chatting. Don't forget to say hi...

Shake rattle and roll

Well what an exciting night. Tonight was Scrap Caps CYBERCROP and as always, its a great time for a chat. So here I am chatting away and the place shakes, and I mean shake..... A few magic words and the fear of life to realise we are having an earthquake!! 4.7 on the scale and scared the life out of me. Luckily no damage or injury so very lucky we all are.
There are 4 new CC challenges in the forum to check out. Complete any or all of these challanges to be in the draw to win a voucher. Entries need to be in the gallery by midnight this Tuesday.
Well a terrible week at work and I am over it. I have started job hunting and hopefully I can find something part time in the merchandising or accounts sector. Definetely time for a holiday too. I will be checking out a few things over the weekend and see where our wings takes us.
Thank god its a long weekend. I think I need the extra day to chill and kick back. We are supposed to be going to adventure Park in Geelong but not sure if i will make it yet. The cost I heard is rather steep.
Well since my last post i created another layout for the CJ Theme comp and here it is...

Well thats it for me ATM so until next time stay safe and keep on chatting...

Just a layout to share

Well a very quiet weekend here, not a lot but house work, paperwork today a tiny bit of scrapping, playing Uno with Blaine and eating...... I ate way too much and the scales sure told me that too. I feel like a yoyo.... Up and down and not consistant. Doesnt matter if I watch what I eat or exercise it seems to go the same no matter what I do. I guess I just have to ride the wave so to speak and hope it decides to move soon.
I managed to make a birthday card for my neighbour for her birthday today... Happy Birthday Anna, and I finally completed the 1st round of the CJ theme comp as well.... 1 down, 9 to go...
The Berwick Show was on over the weekend and even though we didnt go I promised Blaine we would go watch the fire works. So off we go last night and waited and waited and waited and a big disappointment... NO FIREWORKS. I am guessing it's because we had a fire the night before very close to the show grounds and they called it off due to the hire fire risk. Understandable but would have been nice to know IYKWIM. Looks as if Tuesday and maybe Wednesday will be another high risk day so maybe no school again. Better safe than sorry I guess.
Well until next time, stay safe and keep on chatting.
