Just touching base.....

Been a very tiring week in this household. Bianca turned 21 last week so had a family get together last Sunday and the weather over the last few weeks has definately reminded us it is winter (although the last few days it has been sunny and 22degrees!!!) Anyway got home and Chionia started to get croaky. Well not too bad a night a few coughs etc but come Monday morning Jess decided she didn't feel well either so let her stay home. Tuesday both went to school/daycare and I shuffled off to work - 3 hours later I got a phone call asking me to come and collect Jess. I think she has been biting the candle at both ends lately and a bit tired. All fine as such Pick Chionia up and she had a great day :)

But what a shocking kept her and Jess home Wednesday. THursday she back to school all ok and Friday Chionia toddled off to daycare and had a great day. Jess however flaked it after her school excursion and came home early. Friday night I worked but as it was quiet as such and the computer was playing up got home at 11pm. ASleep by 11.45 pm to be woken up just after 1am with CHionia complaining of a sore ear. Well forget sleeping the rest of the night and boy am I tired - Gary let me have a sleep this arvo and ended up having 3 hours whoops! Chionia on antibiotics for a sore ear and is now in lala land and she has had some painstop and the SB's are kicking in lol.

So in all a tiring week full of sickies and some not so sickies........Now to catch up on a few things. So much to do and so little time - but taking tonight off and going to bed early so I can scrap all day tomorrow :) Have heaps to do including the most gorgeous twiddleybitz Princess carriage pumpkin album! If you have girls you have got to do one of these!!!! Also need to keep pluggin away at the masters tasks and a DT project to do......hand cutting I think this week rofl.......Will be posting a bit later in the day me thinks. hehe..

Will leave you with a few photo's from Jess's school excursion yesterday to Buckingham House - here they did all sorts of things and learnt a lot about the olden days lol bit scary when I can remember some of those things.....Will write a detailed brief later!!

Take care all :)

Just for you Donna B!!

hehe - updating my blog - apparently since I have started working my blog is getting a bit neglected lol so here is an update for you :)

Well I have turned 34 since the last post - we bought a Wii console and a few games including Wii Fit for my birthday - it is great fun and the whole family is enjoying it - will try and get some photo's at some stage! GOt some beautiful gifts - a Twiddleybitz frame, gold bracelet, clothes, champagne, tea box and an awesome handbag made by mum!! Birthday cakes from

This weeks DT work for 3AS - also combined it with some of Twiddleybitz new releases - this is the Girls handbag mini album. So much fun!!

Competition time at the magazines atm - Masters - yes I am entering lol - just need to turn the idea's into reality now. I was going to enter the FK Awards for Excellence in which you have to complete 5 LO's in your own style - I had 2 done but have decided now not to enter for a variety of reasons - Quite a few of you told me to still enter - thanks for the support! but I am happy I am not - FK has recently changed over to Creative Paper and is changing the style of the magazine - thats fine however the new look isn't so great and there have been lots of cases of DT's not getting their work published (or even informed of the happenings), LO's that have been accepted are now not getting published and there is no readers gallery any more. Lots of other things as well but I enjoy my scrapping and time is precious so will just stick to those I am at ease with.....Anyway here are my two entries that I was going to enter lol!

MOthers day mini album using a Bella accordian album for Di's - so quick and easy!

Donna gave me lots of photo's and album etc back in March of a cruise they went on last December - Last weekend I didn't have on hand (waiting on Aust post) anything for 3AS or Di or Tbz to do so made a start on her album using the kit that came supplied with the album - 5 doubles in just over 224 hours!! nOt bad for me lol :)

OK Chionia is helping herself to the milk in the fridge so better run - enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone :)
