I also did 2 journal entries in my This Is Me Journal, trying to catch up with the challenges there. So I did the Fears challenge
and the fave funny person one.
Will go back and do the 'Today I love' page and I have started the quote one.
Today we have just hung out at home. Mum is meant to be calling in and Elizabeth is going to have a 'holiday' at Poppy's house, hoping Mum gets here before we have to go get Megan and Jessica from school but she wasn't hopeful. Is cold, wet and windy outside. What is it like where you are?? Thanks for visiting and have a fun day :)
Megan had Guides lastnight so it was grocery shopping for me!
Today we had playgroup in the morning and they got to make bunny ears.
I also took some photos of the 3 tulips we have out at the moment, seems our bulbs just don't like it here as we haven't had many bloom!
We were all set to go visit Allison for the day tomorrow, but she is running a fever so we are staying away. Hope your better soon!
Not much else, so thanks for visiting :)
PS for Grandma, got your mail today. Thanks for the CD photos are now loaded on computer. Elizabeth got her 'chips' and said "OH THANK YOU" whereas Jessica got her pen and said "about time".... I reminded her that it was her that lost it and that it was you who found it and returned it... Thank you on behalf of them both :)
Our 'photo wall' is still waiting for me to add more frames and photos but I love walking past just so I can look!
And that, my friends, is that. As always, thanks for visiting :)
and this one of Lucy looks like she is saying Arrrr, just like a pirate!!
Last night I finally completed this layout of Jessica. The colour combo I used is a little different and slowly growing on me... Yep, it was a creation that just happened (that's me though!).
And found out about a new challenge blog that is starting soon, Scrappin Kids where they will give you a monthly topic to encourage you to scrap more of your little ones. Looking forward to seeing the creations on this one. Thanks Liza for the info :)
And just wanted to say a quick CONGRATS to Elizabeth who has just been 'crowned' Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooker of the Year. Can't wait to see more of her work!Think that's it... Thanks for visiting
Well people, I hope you have a great start to a fantastic week and, as always, thanks for visiting :)
Was yummy :)
Might blog again later, if your lucky lol waiting to hear from Mum as to when she wants us to get the girls.
Thanks for visiting
We got to Melbourne a little later than scheduled, picked up our lovely Kia Carnival (which only had 12kms on the clock!) and zoomed off to Grandma's house.
We had a lovely time settling in and Saturday we had a little road trip visiting some nearby towns and a park for a play and then a walk. All going dandy till Saturday night when Lucy found that Mr Hurly had joined us on holidays!!!
Sunday Lucy, Dave and I stayed home, after being up most of the night with Lucy, while Grandma took Megan, Jessica and Elizabeth off to Church. Sunday night I was in bed before tea and all this time my throat was raging it's own war and we decided I should go to the Dr. So Monday morning Dave took me to the Dr, I was coughing, vomiting and feeling very blue by now. The Dr informed me that it was a cold and I should REST and not be around the kids... Thankfully, because we were at Grandma's, this was achievable and I went home to bed and stayed there till Tuesday!
Monday night it was Dave and Megan's turn to have a visit from Mr Hurly. We started all getting colds about this time too.
Wednesday I finally ventured out, even if it was just a short trip to the Mall and back, and I finally started eating again!
Thursday we thought we would make the most of the day and went to Sovereign Hill, it was a very windy day so we only stayed for the morning.
Friday we headed off to Melbourne, with Grandma, for the night. We shopped all day and then Saturday we drove to the Market, parked the car, walked around, caught some trams and went to the Aquarium.
After that we walked a little more, had some lunch and then caught a tram back to the car before heading home. Poor Elizabeth was so tired and worn out she would lie down on any chair she passed and eyed off those that she wasn't allowed to get to. Around 7.30pm that night we took her to the Dr too and found her ear was inflamed and she started on some antibiotics.
Sunday we went with Grandma to Church and Monday we took Megan and Jessica out to spend their holiday money. Tuesday we flew home again.
So now we are all recuperating (as are Grandma and Grandpa who also have this icky cold) before School goes back on Monday.
Today Dave mowed the lawns, is amazing how much they grew while we were away, and the girls spent loads of time outside enjoying the sunshine. Summer is certainly on its way!
Thanks everyone who visited my lil' ol' blog while we were away and a bigger thank you to those that left comments :) Hugs to you all!!!!!!!
Started a Holiday journal while we were away, but that stopped once I felt so tired and drained from this flu. Will show you all when it's finished, which hopefully won't be too long away!!
Take care and, as always, thanks for visiting :)
