almost a new year

I am back to update my little blog. I promise blog that I will visit more often.

What have I been up to? not much scrapping , I made a heap of cards for my residents and friends

Ok I have been dared to do a 365 photo challenge.

I am making my own rules, it must be a photo a day but I want to do at least once a week I am in the photo.

Also I am going to do project 12, which is a layout a month recapping the month gone, both projects will go together.

I am back

I haven't blogged in for ages so much to do so little time...
I have joined curves haven't lost any weight yet but it will happen. I need to stop eating... Why is it as soon as you say you're on a diet you get hungry?
What proteins do I like? what carbs do I like? well all of them.
Life is rolling on we were going to go away for the weekend but now Dave has to go and help his brothers fix their mums house after the white ant guy cut holes everywhere.

Sarahs engagement and birthday party was great it is sad that we all live so close and don't get together as often as we should. I am talking about my family Ihadn't seen Stuart my gorgeous nephew for almost a year and Matt and Kylie for that long too. I keep up with what they are doing on facebook but it isn't the same. I am just hoping that Sarah got a nice pic of Grant and his cousins, well her in the pic too maybe Skye took a pic.

These are the cards that I made for Sarah

A couple of weeks ago I got to look after Max and Joel. What a joy these two are they are so cute.
Joel was almost crawling he has started to now.
Max was running most of the night after Kelly. Poor Kelly was upset I put Joel to sleep in Brads bed and she couldn't find him she kept sniffing Max and the lounge where Joel had been but she couldn't find him.
We had a great night I forgot how hard it was to hold one baby, watch another and cook tea, luckily Dave was there to cook dinner.

Ok it has been a while...

I don't suppose I can say I have been busy cause it has been normal busy, Lazy? maybe.

Karma struck again tonight t work. One of our lovely residents had his daughter visit from Tasmania and she wanted to have dinner with her dad. Fair enough so we asked 2 of the women from his table if they would mind moving to another table for the night. Well they wouldn't but another one did and father and daughter sat at a table which one of their old neighbours sits so it was very nice.
The selfish woman was making smart comments all through dinner and then later had a small fall, straight on her butt. Go Karma!!!!!!!!!

Sarahs engagement and 30th birthday party tomorrow night should be good.

School holidays are here again and Brad has gone down the coast with his friend Ayden and his family. It shall be very quiet without him

I scrapped!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The first for a couple of months but I finally got some done. they are very plain I just had to do some.
I had five great days off work, they went far too quick though and then 5 minutes back at work and they had a go at me about something I did 2 weeks ago. The boss had already brought the problem to my attention so I don't know or care why the others had to put their 2 cents worth in.
I am over the place the management couldn't run a candy store that gave the stuff away free.
The shit will hit the fan this morning I am sure we just aren't given enough time to get everyhing done and then the care staff don't help at all in the evening so that puts us further behind. I really do feel for the residents because they are not getting the care that they deserve or are paying for.
rant over

Max and Joels Christening

Sunday the 30th August 2009

Milton Uniting Church

Max and Joel were baptised. Poor Max didn't like it one bit from the time they sat down in the church he was upset. His new words are "ow" heard that a lot, "six", and the letter "d" is a favourite too.

Eric, Mandy and I went and had a cup of coffee and went to Milton lolly shop, yummo.

On the side of the road just before Milton is the old ladies shoe. Renee thinks it might be a nursery... weird.

It was a great afternoon the food was awesome. The drive home was long.

Poor Lucy!!!!!!!!

When I fed the guinea pigs last night I musn't have shut their door properly and Lucy got out!
When I took the boys to school Kelly was outside.. strange we thought. When I had my breakfast Kelly wasn't standing there looking starved.. strange I thought. So I called her and called her she cam in with a black muzzle and legs, she had been digging.... Kelly doesn't dig she got into a lot of trouble when she was a pup for digging and she just doesn't do it.
So I went out to see where she had been digging and it was under the wood box all 3 sides.. then I saw the door of the guinea pig cage.. OH NO!!!!!!
Nibbles was safe inside but not Poor Lucy.
So I got the torch and looked underneath and there she was but I couldn't tell if she was breathing, and I had to keep Kelly away. so I rang Grant and he came over to help and we got her out safe and sound. Poor thing was terrified

since then I have cleaned the oven and bathroom, hate cleaning the oven

Tuesday here already

well we think we have found out what is wrong with my car... yay finally. Seems we need to get a genuine Toyota water pump instead of the cheaper one that we have. Can't wait cause the alternative was to trade the car and let someone else have the problem, which isn't nice or fair and I would have sleepless nights waiting for the knock on the door from some angry person with a boiling Camry.

On sunday afternoon while I was taking Shane to work I saw 3 Japanese Uni students crossing the highway one of them carrying a tv, a convertable was approaching them formn the other direction then WHAm the students jumped back???
the guys in the car had a blow up baseball bat that they whacked one of the students with... it was hilarious but they didn't drop the tv..

NO 2
This morning on the way to taking the kids to school there was a man standing at his gate with the flanny checked shirt and denim overalls digging the wax(or corn) from his ear. Very farmtown looking.
we thought it was funny anyway.

Another week gone

Honestly where does the week go? I know I was a bit bored yesterday but onlybecause I was in between picking up Shane and Dave and getting dinner ready and then there was nothing on tv last nightbut please where are my days off going?

I took the boys shopping on Saturday to Miranda Fair south of Sydney north of Wollongong, it is huge!!!!!!!!! we haven't been up there for about & years, yes that is how long we have had no splurging money. Made up for it on Saturday. Both of them got skateboard bits, Rip Curl t-shirts, Shoes (skate shoes at $130 a pop), socks, my boys love getting new socks weird I know, jeans for Brad, silly slogan t-shirt each, Krispy Kremes. All up around $500. happy boys yes, happy bank account no. Happy husband not on your life, him big cranky. Oh well it was my tax return he can spend some of ht next one.....

My niece Sarah and her partner of 7 years announced their engagement on Friday... yay the wedding will be in October next year, Sarah wants to lose weight and i think I might join her, my aim is 1 kilo per month. Might have to borrow some money from Dave and get some walking shoes and get tothe gym. mmmmm not my favourite word but I think itis necessary.

my first blog post

I have joined the rest of the world and have a blog

It was an exciting morning here my eldest son Grant went on "Sunrise" the morning show in Sydney.
Grant and his friend Jacob,aka Arab, have put themselves on ebay in a bid (ha ha) to get a job. A WA paper and radio sation picked up the story and then they went on Sunrise this morning. He was so nervous, but his hero Koshy wasn't on today poor Grant he will be shattered
