Hhhmmmmm thoughts on plastic surgery? I personally was pretty happy with the way I looked,yes I need to lose a few kilo's and my body in general was trashed from having kids...but I have never been tempted to alter my body surgically,having said that I can see why some people do.my tummy tuck has gone well,I'm healing nicely,the scar from hip to hip is a little more gruesome than I was hoping for,but I know it will mostly fade away to a thin white line,I have lost a whole tattoo,which is kinda weird,and had a muscle tightened that was overstretched by carrying Sully very low,and the fact he was 9-1/2 pounds!As for the endometriosis? Well only time will tell! I'm yet to speak at length with my plastic surgeon,I have an appt with him in May. The first couple of days were very unpleasant,after that it was just painful when getting up and down,and bending over etc.Our insurance company has knocked back our claim,for quite different reasons than we were told,apparently the scheduled fee for abdominoplasty is about 600$, my surgeon charges 5000$, so they give you back like 200$ from Medicare because that's what they deem reasonable ! Go figure! We are persuing it further,it's not like I just woke up one day and decided "hey I want a tummy tuck!" This was a last ditch attempt at fixing an ongoing, painful medical condition.

Anyway, another 2 weeks or so and I can start running, and get started on losing my 10 kilos...I did buy a size 12 pair of jeans yesterday! Much excitement,now my little mummy tummy is gone,things fit a lot better! Lol !

I'm also starting in the next week or so,a kind of weekly "project life" using w r memory keepers divided page protectors,and a kit of paper and elements and my own stash. Becky Higgins does the "Project Life" kit in the US and Amazon sells it,just not to Australia!!!! And the Au distributor sells out before they even get in to the shop, so I thought, bugger it I'll do my own! Basically my kids lives are passing me by,seeing as I only scrap the big events,first day of school ,Easter,birthdays etc ,and now I have my little selphy printer I want to do a week at a time,that's the beauty of the divided page protectors,and kit ,I can print off my pics here,in various sizes, then on a Friday nite,whilst the footy is on pop them in the album.I am actually really looking forward to having that to inspire me... That and a serious need to use some of my stash...lol! It's out of control!

Business has been on hold for a few weeks,seeing as I wasn't allowed to drive till last week. But after the school holidays I will be back doing restocks,and in production.

Well that's it for a lazy Sunday,I'm meant to be doing the ironing.... Can not be bothered!!!!
