Warm Winter Wendnasday!

Well today has been a really warm day, even though it's the middle of winter. I think it got to about 19*C. It was such a lovely day we decided to walk to school to pick up Georgia. Ben came home with a merit certificate today, a proud mummy moment, for always working hard:-) He is a hard worker and he loves school this year which is great.

Just catching up from the weekend, we spent the weekend at the shack. Was really nice to get away again. We had good weather too. On Saturday we packed a picnic and went for a drive to the beach, to do some shell collecting (this is Georgia's fave thing to do).
Sunday we were going to go fishing but we had a minor problem and didn't get out (got bogged!!, lol!!) was very funny, but that's all I'm going to say about that. Hopefully we will get to go fishing soon. We came home late Monday.

Here is a lo that I did last week sometime. I completed it in about an hour, which must be some kind of record for me, used some silver bazzil bling for the background.

Hope the rest of your week is good:0)

New LO

Just thought I'd pop in to share my latest LO. It is a scrap-lift of Mel's "Laundry Love" LO.
It's of Georgia, Jackson and their cousin Clare. These kids are very lucky to have a Grandma that can knit gorgeous clothes for them. She is an amazing knitter, she is so fast, and it's great cause knitted cardigans and vests are so in this season. Georgia has her little knitted vest and cardigan on in the photo and Clare is wearing Georgia's little red cardigan too.

On other news, our plans are finished, so we are picking them up tomorrow and taking them straight to council. I hope they aren't too long there. As soon as their approved we can start building (yay!!)
Not a lot else happening today. Had a quiet morning at home with Jacco, doing lots of house-work (yuck) .
We had Georgia's parent-Teacher interview this arvo, and she is doing so well at school, her teacher thinks she's a little angel, lol.
Today Georgia gave the little finger puppets she made to some of her friends at school, she also gave one to her teacher, so sweet. She has a little boy in her class who is autistic, and we have been talking a lot about him lately. She sometimes comes home from school and says that he is naughty. She must find it hard to understand why he is how he is, but I just say his brain doesn't work as well as the other kids. I thought it was so sweet that she wanted to give him a little finger puppet too, she is such a caring little girl, I just love her to bits.
Thanks for reading (if anyone does, lol)

Happy Birthday Mum!

Happy 61st Birthday to my Mum. Hope you had a good day. We went out for lunch, with Mum, my Nan and my sisters and their kids. We went to the Carlyle (think that's how you spell it??) It was the first time I had been there, and it was quite nice. There is a big indoor play room for the kids, so they had lots of fun. I gave Mum "Walk The Line"CD, so now she can crank it up in her car when she is running all the girls around, lol! Mum is in charge of the Fahan Boarding House, and has been there for about 15 years now (I think), so I lived there as a teenager ( for a couple of years). I also gave Mum some money to go towards a cappuccino machine she wants to get. I made her this card (with lots of bling) and made the cover for the CD (cause I didn't have any wrapping paper)

Yesterday after school a few of the kids from Ben's class were going up to the snow they asked us to go along too, after a lot of umming and arring, and a lot of nagging from Ben, we decided to go, so we had about 10 minutes to get everyone ready, we put about 100 layers on the kids and ourselves in that time, was quite funny really, then we headed off, but "oh no" I forgot the camera, luckily we were only just down the road, so turned back to get it. We were going to meet them near the sports center, but they weren't there when we got there, so we thought we missed them. So we headed up the mountain, it was starting to drizzle (great) I said to Jon "I hope they didn't change there minds and turned back", but we kept going anyway. We finally got to the top and they weren't there, but they arrived just after us. The kids got in about an hour of playing before the rain got really bad. It was Jackson's first time in the snow, and to be honest I thought he would hate it, but he had fun, and he discovered he could say snow, so that's all we heard "Snow! Snow! Snow!" (so cute).

Here a some Photos.

Miss Georgia has been a busy girl making these cute little critters for some of her friends at school. She is very good at crafty things (that makes me happy, we'll be able to scrap together when she gets a bit bigger:0) She really takes her time and tries really hard to get things "just right" lol. These little finger puppets come in a pack of five with all the little bits you need, I got them from the newsagency for only $2.95, bargain. It kept her quiet for over an hour.

Nightie nite, have a bit of a headache so I'm off to bed now.

It's been another busy week. On Sunday it was my niece's 17Th birthday, we went to Taco's. I was a mean Mummy and left the kids with Grandma and had a kid free night, which was nice, Jon had to work so he couldn't go:0( but all in all it was a fun night. I whipped up this card for her.

Georgia had her first little friend over for a play after school last week. They played really well together. She was in a funny little mood, giggling and showing off, being very cute, her little friends name is Jacob (yes a boy) You would think she would be sick of boys having two brothers, but that was who she wanted to have to play (so cute).

Monday night we had one of Jon's childhood friends and his partner over for dinner. They enjoyed catching up on old times, I heard some funny stories. They were both really nice and hope we can catch up with them again.

*Building news* Plans are being drawn up, soil test has been done ( I think,lol) and we settle the block tomorrow, so that means we'll be land owners again. I took some photos yesterday.
Scrapping is still slow. I really want some new supplies but not a lot of cash around atm :0(

Here's one I finished today. I don't know whats wrong with me lately but everything I do I'm not 100% happy with. I use to love finishing a LO and be proud of them, every time I'd finish one it use to be my new favorite, I don't know why I feel this way. I still love scrapping and want to scrap at any spare moment, maybe I need to do some classes. I wish I had someone to go with. I might look into an online class, that might get me going again.

That's enough rambling for one day

Where does it go???

Where dose the time go?? I was trying hard to blog more, but time really does fly by. Umm trying to think what has happened since my last post. We spent the weekend (23rd & 24Th June) at the shack which was nice. We had fine weather, but it was still very cold. We went out in the boat fishing on the Saturday, this was Georgia's first time in the boat. She really loved it and was very excited when she caught her first fish (Flathead, yum). We came home on the Monday, which was Jon's birthday. We spent the morning at the shack, and it was such a beautiful day there we decided to get some lunch and take it down to the beach and eat it. Afterwards we drove home and unpacked, then went to Jon's mum & dad's house for a roast lamb dinner, with chocolate pudding for desert (requested by the b'day boy). We ended up getting him a Billabong hoodie, Mr & Mrs Smith DVD (if you haven't seen it, you must!!) and a couple of other bits and pieces.

We had our good friend Sarah and Michael around for dinner on Monday night. They are off to Europe for 7 weeks (lucky them) they will be travelling around staying a few nights at each city. I really hope they don't have any trouble in London, with what's going on there at the moment. I'm sure they will have a wonderful time and see so many beautiful places.
I have scraped a LO at last. It's been months since I have done any. I'm not all that happy with it, but at least it's something.

Also made this little sleepy bear for Georgia. I felt-lifted it off the talented Mel. I am going to try the little chick next. It's so cute.

Thanks for stopping by:-)
