Our wedding party at the golf club where we held our reception
Us again - just a silly shot (we'd all just about had enough of photo's by the time this one came about!)
My beautiful boys and my niece
and Tim and I.
My beautiful boys and my niece
Its of Tennyson (in his trade mark ACDC t-shirt - as far as his musical tastes go I swear the kid was born about 30 years too late!) and one of his best mates, Scott at their schools Christmas concert last year. I love the photo - typical them. I said how about a photo of you two, and instantly this pose appeared.
This photo was take of my sister and I in about 1980 I think and I remember it because it was the first time my mum let me put lip stick on. It was lip gloss really but I didn't know that back then and I didn't really care anyway because it made my lips shiny and I thought I was 'it and a bit!!'.
It's been really heartwarming to see how the scrapbooking community has 'gathered together' to help all those effected by the bushfires in Vic. There are a number of sites and shops who are offering to donate profits to the appeal. If you get a chance please support as many of these places as you can, they are doing a good thing donating to these people who have lost so much. One of these places is Simply Fresh Kits who are donating 25% of each sale. If you get a chance go and check them out - their kits are stunning and full of all sorts of yummy bits and pieces.
Now for my mystery RAK. Its a mystery because I haven't worked out exactly what will be in it as yet but I can say that there will be some card stock and som PP and a few other little goodies. All you need to do is comment on any of my posts between now and next Monday and if your name is the one drawn a RAK will be heading your way (share the love I say!!!). If you're the winner you'll be able to choose from 1 of 2 colour themes but more on that once the winner is drawn.
Well I'm off to finishe the dishes because the fairies didn't turn up again tonight (going to have to sack them I think). Take care, stay safe and hug your loved ones xxx
This photo was taken at a winery in Pt Lincoln. I love the beautiful colours of the leaves.
Now just in case you think we look like the normal everyday family I thought I'd post these to shatter that illusion!!!!!
Hopefully I'll be back with some new creations once my shifts are over - thanks for visiting!
This one was done for a challenge at Debs but I didn't get it done in time to submitted it (oops!!!!). The colours look much brighter in real life. Its of Tim and I taken a year or so ago at a friends birthday.
These came from the lovely Amanda who I participated in a photo swap with over at Deb's (check it out if you haven't before http://www.debscreations.net.au/forum/)
I love the way she has managed to capture both the boys personalitites exactly.
The boys love them too especially Tennyson who keeps coming back to the table where they are laying for another look. He said to me earlier "how does that lady know I love to read?" I should have said 'because I sent her an email telling her what you guys like to do' but instead I told him she was psychic......was that wrong?????
Well Strawberry Pops to be exact....actually imported South African Strawberry Pops to be even more exact!
I was conned! A new store has recently opened here, which sells imported items from the US, Britain and a few other places, and Josh talked me into going with him to have a look inside as saw some drinks he wanted to try. He had spotted some cans of Dr Pepper, Grape flavoured lemonade etc. that he was keen to try as well as some other products that he had seen on TV but had never tried (not that I minded too much as they sell Hersheys Peanut Butter Cups which are my faves - Mmmmmm!!!).
Anyway to cut a long story short I was feeling generous and allowed him to choose a few things to bring home and try and these Strawberry Pops were one of the things he wanted to try. I didn't look at the price tag and didn't reallt think too much of it when the lady told me the total price as I assumed being imported items that they would be a little more expensive than normal. It wasn't till we got home that I took a closer lok at the box and almost choked when I saw the little yellow tag with $11.95 stuck to the side!
To make matters worse once the boys had a bowl each they decided that they weren't that nice and didn't want to eat any more of them so for the last 4 weeks I have been eating bowls of these things because there was no way I was going to be throwing them away after thay had cost me so much in the first place. I finally finished the last of them on the weekend and let me tell you I never want to see another pink oven toasted grain of rice!
Have I learnt a lesson from this? Yes, never trust your children!
