Hello world!

Posted on

Hello blogging world! It has been awhile… too long in fact.

Way to much has been happening to tell you everything so I’ll just stick with the most recent and the most exciting news. I have been chosen to be on the Scrappin Patch design team! I am so super excited. I have had quite a bit of time away from scrapping due to Uni and everything else but I am ready to get back into it. I am so honoured to be working with such a talented group of ladies. Ohh I’m just so excited! lol

So, what does that mean?? I will be over here LOTS! Hopefully inspiring you with all the wonderful product that is available in the shop. It also means that I will be (hopefully, I will try my very hardest!) to keep this blog updated.

So stop in and say hi at the Patch, join the forum and join in on all the fun we are having over there. Also say hi here – will be nice to know if anyone is listening to my ramblings. 🙂

Real life – day three

Opps a bit of a delay for day three – I forgot all about it last night.

Well yesterday we saw the sun!! Oh yes we did – very exciting! lol I tell you the weather down here is crazy. So I had to take a photo of this.


Yes it is washing hanging on the line in the sunshine. Not all that exciting for you but very exciting for me!!

The girls have been spending a lot of time in here after I found a bag of sand. Man they play the funniest games!


Last night in between watching LOST (which was the craziest episode ever – what the heck is going on!?!?!?) I was looking through my albums from when I was on my OE. Ohh some funny, funny photos. Lots of awesome memories from the free & single days!!


Right today is a very special day. It is my parents 37th Wedding Anniversay!! WTG Mum & Dad. It is also my nephews 3rd birthday – Happy, Happy Birthday gorgeous boy. And it is also my good friends Jan & Andy’s wee boy Alex’s 2nd birthday. So lots of celebrating going on arounnd the country today. Me on the other hand has to clear my study desk of all the crap sitting on it & get myself back into study mode. Oh the joy!

Real life day 2

Today was all about this:


And while she was peacefully doing that I could be found here:


And thinking maybe I should be thinking more about this (uni starts next week):


Real Life Day 1

So I was reading Vicky’s blog the other day & she had a great idea to post photos about ‘real life’. Things that are happening that are just part of everyday &  maybe get neglected to be photographed. I forgot about it during the weekend but thought I would make a start today.

Tea & hot x buns

This morning was just bliss! **Sigh** I dropped the girls off, did a couple of jobs in town then came home toasted some hot cross buns, made a cup of tea & watched PS I Love You on DVD. This is not normal Monday morning behaviour but ohh was it just wonderful. Even if I did spend the best part of the next couple of hours crying. What a great but sad movie – it got me at the wake when the Pogue’s song  came on & then that was it!!


 Most days Tiana and I end up playing a couple of games after kindy and before we have to pick Jamie up from school. Today’s choice was Snap.


Making cheese & Marmite scrolls to satisfy mums carb craving!!


Chilling with a snack & a bit of TV after finishing her homework.


I love reading Hannah’s blog and yesterday she had up a list of questions that her friend asked her. At the end of her post she asked for others to play along – what the heck I thought, I’ll join in!

Here are the question’s that Hannah has asked me –

1. What did you want to be when you were growing up? Did that dream change over the years?

When I was young I always thought it would be cool to be an airhostess! I could travel the world and get paid for it. A trip to the US with my family when I was about 12 put an end to that! All that flying & not much sleep did not make for a fun job I decided. Through out school I really can’t remember have any real desire’s career wise. I thought it would be cool working in hospitality did that for a while – ahhh nah! Ohh how about working in travel – did that for quite awhile – ahhh nah! Ohhh wouldn’t it be cool to be a forensic scientist – ummm maybe not too much study! I must say that for many years I did think about going into teaching but many things stopped me. Though I am please to say that I am nearly at the end of my teaching degree – Will it be my dream job? Who knows – hopefully!

2. Sweet or savoury, which do you prefer?

I’m a food girl! All of it thanks! lol Though if I have to choose just one it would be sweet for sure. Give me a bar of chocolate or a packet of lollies & it will be gone before you can say “Did you save me any??”

3. If you were stranded on an island and could only take FIVE scrapbooking items, what items would you choose?

Asuming I have my photos with me I would have to say – my black pen, my purple paper trimmer, some LOTS of patterened paper, my fiscars scissors and some photo splits! I don’t need much – shhhh don’t tell my husband that though!!!!

4. What qualities do you look for in a friend?

Someone that I can be myself when I am around them & accepts me for all my quirks! And who feels that they can just be themselves around me!! Someone that I can easily talk too & doesn’t mind when I ring them just because.

 5. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I have been lucky enough to visit quite a few places but ohhhhhhh there a SO many more places I wish to visit. My list is so long but here are a few.

India – A country that I have always, always wanted to visit. I want to go and experience the different cultures, religions, food – everything!

South Africa – To see where my DH grew up and experience that places that he has experienced.

Israel – OK I have already been here but ohh I so want to go back here. So many memories of Israel but I would love to go back and see more of the country and make lots more memories.

Las Vagas – Just because!! DH & I have been joking about going & having an Elvis wedding there!

Now, if you would like ME to interview YOU, here’s what to do:
1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will email you 5 questions.
3. You answer the questions on your blog.
