Also held my first scap party last night, with 12 girls and we had so much fun! We completed a concertina card, which was so fun to make and so affective when it is all together! I so have to make some more of these, and post to family who live out of town! So in love with this! Can't wait until the next one! Such a great night! Such a stress relief!

The last few weeks haven't been the best for me! Last Monday it was off to the Docs as I was getting worse and worse. He told me I had a secondary brochial infection and if left untreated = pneumonia. So luckily I saw sense, now on antibiotics, but 5 days later, am still full of green slime. I am sure I have no skin left on or under my nose! So sore! At least my chest no longer rattles and doesn't hurst when I cough, so starting to see the light of day there!
The last few days I have been playing catch up with the house work, that was long overdue but no energy to do it like cleaning out fridges, pantry cupboards, cleaning windows, wiping off little handprints from the kitchen cupboards, TV, fishtanks, mirrors, etc, washing, vacuuming, washing floors, tidying up toys! So the house is looking presentable again!
I even found the time this morning to do some waxing, eyebrows, underarms, brazilian, legs, and washed my hair, so I am feeling a little more human again!
Only got one layout done this week, in ode of my mum, who has been my rock over the past few weeks with me being sick, but unfortunately, the past week I love her so much, I even shared my flu with her! But god love her, she still took the kids on Tuesday night so that Grant & I could have an anniverary tea without them! So heres the layout, hope you all like it.
Today I am continuing to try to put some order back into the house, next on the list is the backroom and my scrapstuff, then if tomorrow goes to plan, and Grant is out cutting firewood, I'll do some well earned scrapping!
Have you all checked out www.thescrapbookestablishment.com.au yet, and its fantastic forum. Well Annette at TSE has been so busy, she is even opening a gallery very shortly! Maybe as early as next week, so keep your eyes peeled! Can't wait!
Hope you and all your families are well!

Hi There fellow bloggers, its Wednesday today Yippee. I had alot of hat swapping last week, I had the "Beauty Hat", "Bookkeeper Hat", "Party Hat a few times", "Scrappy Hat", "Mummy Hat" & "Sick Hat". Had the biggest week last week, and ended up with a head cold from hell! Me, usually being a 14 hour a week bookkeeper and the rest of my time being a SAHM, my week last week (Monday to Monday) comprised of Beautician - 36 hours, Pink Concert - Tuesday Night, Bookkeeper - 14hrs, Scrap party - Saturday afternoon, 21st Party - Saturday night, Mothers Day Lunch at Raymond Terrace Botanical Gardens, Grants (hubby) 33rd Birthday tea at the local Chinese Restuarant. Yesterday was a disaster, had an appointment in Maitland, so by the time we went there, then had a browse around, it was after 2pm by the time we got home, we all had a nanny nap, then off to do the well needed Grocery Shopping. So much for resting yesterday. So today is hopefully put your feet up and rest day, don't know how I'll go with 2 little people under 4yrs and both with Colds too! Isn't it lovely to be a family and share everything!
Even though my week last week was hectic, and don't think I could cope with doing those sort of hours everyweek, I still really enjoyed putting my Beautician Hat on for a week, pampering people, meeting people and generally having conversations that are of adult topic instead of Kiddie talk. The girls that I worked with are just beautiful people!
Thats all for me, no scrapping has been done for the past week, and probably not much more will get done this week either with us all sick with colds. I might even browse www.thescrapbookestablishment.com.au store for some more supplies. For those of you reading, it is worth your while to check out the Scrapbook Establishment, as the owner Annette, is a wonderful person, and has just introduced a new forum to her site, of which I am one of her Moderators. The girls on the TSE team are just fantastic and I have adopted them all as my new family! They are just great, you will love them to, so drop by, say hello, and get to know some new people! It will be worth it! A Big High 5 to all the girls at TSE for a job well done, WOOT WOOT WOOT as Janey would say!

Last weekend Grant & I attended the lovely formal wedding of Grants mate Ed to Mel at Tulloch Winery at Pokolbin. It was a beautiful wedding and it felt good to dress up and feel elegant for a change! I've included a pic of me and hubby! What a couple! A big congrats to Ed & Mel, may you live a life full of love and happiness together.
The week past by unpreductively, not much scrapping done, more organising than anything, and most attention focused on trying to fine tune my new blog and chatting amongst my new TSE family!
TODAY is Sunday, and I'm still a bit doughy after last nights party! We went to hubbys sisters 30th at the Old Texas Ranch, dressing up Cowboy/Cowgirl style. We danced, rode Randy (the bull), ate too much and drank way too much, but what a great night we had! Yeha!
Managed to get up nice and early (though feeling a tad bit doughy) and battled the croud at Maitland Markets, where I bought some great scrap supplies and a few treats for the Kids. Loving the velvet rick rack!
My week ahead is hectic, working 6 days as a beautican (glad this doesn't happen all the time), working 2 nights as a bookkeeper, have another 21st to attend on Saturday night, Sunday is Mothers Day and hubbys 33rd! but best of all I have P!nks concert Tuesday night with my nextdoor buddy Mel! Can't wait for that! P!NK Rocks!!!!!! Went to her last concert and she is a fab entertainer. Will post pics!!!! But this time next week, I think I WILL be passed out and deflated.
Until then, I'll love ya's and leave ya's all and you'll all come back now ya hear!
