Scrap Layouts

Favourite LO Ever!

This is my all time favourite Lay Out!! It just came together beautifully...will always love it! Trying to work out how to have a gallery on this Blog, but never seem to have 5 minutes to spare!!!

Well that was my 5 minutes... LOL!

Cheers B

Well Hello,

We went to the Zoo with a friend yesterday, and Thankfully the Boys were on their almost best behaviour!!!

I love the Zoo, we live about 20 mins away and have a yearly family pass, so if we want to go for an hour or so it's no big deal...We are equally close to the Museum, the City, the collingwood children's farm and a few other great kids attractions...

Oh and I have to say Hello to Marcia P, who is a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, who has made me want to blog a bit more, now I know people are reading it!!!

Maybe more later, i have a small child bumping my keyboard every few swcongs!! LOL!

Cheers B

Why do our children push us to our limits??? Do they not know how much we love them, care for them, worry about them?

I just took my two to the Park because they were driving me nuts being inside, and lets face it...I hate the park, I'd rather be pottering around (read scrapbooking)..and there were some other kids there a bit older.. Anyway Sully wanted to play with this kids remote controlled car ( yeah really great when other kids bring stuff from home)..and wouldn't let sully have a go...so he snatched it of the kid, ran off with it wailing at me..that the kid wouldn't let him have a go...I mean s*&t if I knew the kid I would have made him share, but you can't....So anyway I took it off him, gave it back to the kid and Sully lost it....Screaming, hitting, sobbing..so ok ,time to go...but of course you have to get the other one to come too...within seconds of Sully's meltdown, Lincoln, smacks some kid on the head...and not in a Nice way...and when I pulled him up on it, he comes out with "NO" and smacked me one!!!!!

OMG!!! and of course all the Mum's are standing there stunned that obviously I was totally losing it, and it was because of their stupid kid in the first place!!!! If your kid can't share...don't take stuff to the park, pool, shops, house, anywhere.....

OK, I think I'm alright now, until DH gets home and says something dumb like" they don't do it to me... so how can I help you?"

Hi All,

it's been a very full on emotionally draining week...Ray's funeral was really lovely, and my boys were absolutley fantastic, they said goodbye to their grandpa, and were a nice distraction for the other funeral goers, my MIL is doin' ok considering...

I have amanged to get all of my X-mas shopping done,and wrapped! So at least I don't have to venture out into any of the insanity!!!!Been catching up with some old country school friends..Waving hi Sal, Linda and Karen!!! Which has been really good.

Am about to do some scrapbooking, although my heart isn't really in it.

Not sure how one announces these things, but my Father in Law Ray Everett, passed away on Thursday afternoon,the funeral is tommorow, and I'm hoping that as a family we can all get through it....Michael is doin' ok, he had a great relationship with his Dad, as did I,
I will miss him terribly...

Hi All,

Sorry I've been a bad blogger...Lot's on at the moment, and my father in law is very,very ill...It's really hard not being able to do anything and wait and see if he improves, he's in ICU at Monash with Pacreatitis, which is affecting his other organs, and My husband and his Family are all taking turns looking after my Mother in law. I feel really helpless, I'm a doer, I'm good in a crisis, but my Husband pretty much is keeping to himself...So here's hoping Ray gets better and we can share Christmas with him.
