Sorry I haven't updated sooner, I didn't realise I hadn't done my weekly update so I guess this 1 will be 2 weeks worth so beware it could be a long one...
Last week was kind of quite and back to normal routine. No appointments, at work and not a lot happening on the site which is really sad. I have made the lovely Sammi my shadow on site to help me out with bits and pieces so if you need anything, please contact Sammi and myself and we will do the best to help you. Now just on the quiet....shhhhhh.... there could be a new DT call coming up so keep your eyes and ears opened for that 1.
So what have we been upto, apart from the usual chaos in every day life, not a lot.
Blaine had his Book Fair Parade on Friday and it was a Jarrasic Theme, so off we went to spotlight to create a costume and he picked what he wanted so the challenge was on. I made him a pterodactyl costume, all bright and shiney. It was also grandparents day so my mum went to school with him and his class made pizza's in the wood oven they made last year as well as pom poms while they waited. It turned out to be a great day, especially morning tea.... we all donated to the Cancer Councils Morning Tea and had lots of yummy cakes and biscuits to choose from. Blaine's mate Josh came as a caveman and he looked awesome. Michele did a great job of his costume... well done Michele. here are a few snapshots from the day.

Our weather in Melbourne has been really cold and a few days last week made it to a top of 13 degree's. The morning drive to work is shocking with the pea soup we have to drive through. Here is a picture from Friday morning. This was take about 10.30am so had started to clear but you get the idea.
So as you can see it has been great scrapping weather, just a shame i havent been able to get into it. I have been so tired lately and would love to have a nanna nap right now...hehe
Yesturday was our 1st Scrapbook CAPITAL crop day. There was only 5 of us but it was a really relaxing day and we all got heaps done. The hall was a great size, warm and comfortable so really looking forward to the next 1 which is Saturday 20th June. Plenty of room, and only $10 per head. Check out the forum for all the details. I managed to get my 30th kaiser album done for my sisters birthday. Just have to add photos and that all done. Here is a snap of yesturday.

A last minute decision, and off we went to the Richmond/Essendon night match. Richmond had a great 1st half and died in the end. I think we will be giving the footy a miss for a while until Richmond pulls their heads out of their a***es . Anyway we must have had the worst seats ever and we were on the 4th level. The 1st quarter Blaine and I sat so still cos we were so scared the stand was going to collapse or we were going to fall off we were so high up. It was a match we should have stayed home and watched on TV. We trained it in and out and Blaine slept all the way home. It was a very late night and was so glad to be home.
A bit of a sleep in this morning, I've just had a shower and back in my pj's, dinner is on. A bit of scrapping tonight and an early night tucked up and warm under the doona.... Oh yeah I can hear my bed calling me now. Well thats about it for me this time round. Until next time stay safe and keep on chatting.

Happy Mothers day.

Hi everybody and Happy Mothers Day to you all.
I've had a lovely day today. Blaine helped me make some breakfast and I got loads of "mothers day stall" gifts too as well as a beautiful hand made card.
Today we also celebrated Maddys 7th birthday at Hungry Jacks. Kid's seemed to have a good time and I tempted a cup cake tree. Very average but apparently they were yum and they all got eaten so happy about that.

Here are some pics from Maddy's Birthday today.

Home again to finish off some scrapping for Mum's MD pressie and CC challenges. This is what i have done so far.

Mum, Blaine and I headed to Chinese for dinner. It was so yummy and so filling too. After dinner we had ice cream from Cold Rock then headed home to warm up with a blanket on the couch. Here is a few photo's from last night.

Overall it was a pretty good weekend. Thanks for popping in and leave a comment if you like. Until next time keep safe and keep on chatting...

It's all about Blaine...

Sorry girls for being out of sorts lately. I have had something that has been bugging me and it's not going to go away and I'm hoping if it's out in the open I might start to feel better.
My little man was diagnosed last week with Aspergus Syndrome. He was assessed and diagnosed immediately by a proffessor and I think because it was so quickly it has been a slap in the face.
I have a niece and nephew that both have it and a cousin, so when it was spoken about, it was never for me to point the finger and say yep thats him too. I actually thought he was a normal 6 year old that bounced off the walls and was emotional because it has only been me and him from day 1. But sadly not the case.
Last week was a trip back to the Peadiatrtian to which he has also diagnosed him with ADHD. This poor kid has not only 1 thing to deal with, he has 4. He has started medication so time will tell I suppose, but they make him feel a bit sick so who knows whats next.
So our next few months are in and out of doctors and specialists, teacher interviews not to mention the norm of work, sports etc....
So here I am spilling it all, blaming my self due to the emotional pregnancy I had with him after the husband left and I feel tired... so so tired. I look in the mirror and see a fat, aging, lazy mother that needs to get it together for her childs sake. I was vacuuming the floor and burst into tears and I think it has all just hit me. Can somebody hit the pause button for me...PLEASE.
I don't think me spilling it has made me feel better but there you have it. We will be fine, a well deserved holiday is needed and time out for the both of us. So thanks for listening and sorry for burding you all with my crap, I figure the few that read this are my friends so thanks for the ears.

May is here, and so is Winter. There's snow in them there hills (in my best yo Sammity Sam voice) but have to say I'm loving the snuggling under the doona and my big fluffy sox....

Blaine started Auskick today and he did ok.... after he got over all the excitement they had a bit of a game and he kicked a goal..... He was so excited and he really suprised me. he went hard at the ball and really got in there and had a go. I think he will be a good little player once he settles down and gets to know the rules. Here are a few little snaps from today.

The rest of the day has been just doing little things around the house and lazing on the couch, gee it was nice... and here is Blaine chillin' out...

Haven't done much scrapping but plan on tackling something tonight. Sandie has week 3 up on her blog and Sharon has put up round 4 for the BIU competition so I have that to do as well. Also have a look at the May sketch at Scrap Cap..... That's another on the to do list...

Alicia the puppy left last night and went to my sisters house and Zoe (pup no: 2) is going to my Uncles tomorrow, so back to me, Blaine and Lilly and about a ton less dog poo over the lawn... Its sad to see them go but luckily they are going to good homes. I still think the Lee house hold needs a puppy with all those cats... Next litter... hehehe....

We have had a flat out week and next week wont be much better. Blaine has a few things going on atm so hopefully we can get it all sorted but looks as if its going to take a bit of time to do so, so hopefully we can take some time out and chill. I'm going to plan a weekend trip to the snow in the next couple of weeks, so I will pop up pics when we go.

Well thats about it for me today. Thanks for popping in. Please say hi and leave a comment oooh and check out all the new yummy's in the whats new section at SCRAP CAP...
