what a lovely weekend...



Such a wonderful time was had by all at my big sister's house on the long weekend, all except for the youngest member of my brood Lumpy. Poor little angel cross cut his second tooth so he was in quite a deal of pain for quite a few days but yeah!!! it is now through and my happy little monkey is back! Sketti went back to school on Tuesday, thought that I would be a tad bit happier about the situation but alas I miss my little friend. He was very brave indeed sucking back the tears that he was about to shed (with a few words of encouragement from mum of course). Then of course Hubbin dropped him off today and down rained the tears, typical men. After some consolling he toddled into his classroom.



Had a fabbo time at my sister's which consisted of a lovely swim in her lovely pool with my sis-in-law (who was bordering on being drunk), a very funny lady even without alcohol but add some rum and she is awesome fun aslong as she doesn't have a lead pencil (in house joke)!!! My sis scrapped & scrapped & scrapped and I watched and learnt occasionally stopping her to make her fix my page LOL!!! Poor woman would have got a shit load more done if I knew what I was doing....


Then we were of to home town when I so very stupidly suggested to the Hubbin that he could drive, so Gatton bypass here we come when I happened to notice the speedo sitting on 120km/hr, and casually mentioned that he should slow down as if he gets a speeding fine he will never hear the end of it from me, 500 metres later the speedo climbs back up & before I could rip his head off ZOOM through the speed camera we go. Then I went beserk at him for 45 seconds & the car went quite for the next hour. Stupid Men!!! Hope that he enjoys his extra overtime that he will be doing...


Anywho off to foodville I go as I am famished as I have been dieting for 2 weeks so that I can look shit hot in a dress for a wedding this weekend, but I am getting to the stage where I am like Nah!!! I'm married and really don't give a shit so I am aiming for something deep friend for lunch LOL!!! Have a glorious day...

So tired..






And today we will have orange text. I just finished reading my big sista's blog OH MY GOD WOMAN 3.30am are you insane!!! I would literally collapse into a screaming mess by 9.30pm let alone 3.30am! I am 27 and you run circles around me... Had a lovely day today, glued the bench top down(a week after we started the kitchen renovations), went to a lovely little place in Highfields that contains fudge for the Hubbin and a scrap shop for me!! Sketti managed to walk out of the scrap shop purchasing more than what I did, I am either slipping with my spending or enjoying our "scrap days". Then ventured to our friends Lindsay's house and had lunch and the kids had a play and Sketti got covered in red dirt but had a fantastic time and we have Napisan I suppose. Got some really cool pictures of Sketti and a kick arse storm this week, still working out how to use it though. Lumpy got his first tooth last week and is standing up on furniture now so we have had a lot of spills in our house this week. Heading to Brissy this weekend to spend a few days with my big sis oh and that's right my Hubbin is going deep sea fishing with my brother, and did I mention that I am spending a few days with my big sis!!! Not half excited huh! Back to the kitchen, had a blast ripping off the tiles but now we have to replace them which is good for me as I get to choose the feature tiles this week and then watch my Hubbin painstakingly put them on. Poor guy!! We got the doors stained and hung and the laminex on so now for the flashing then the tiles then done. Anywho must away I am bludging and preparing the family pizza from Eagle Boys for dinner as 1.I am lazy & 2. they had roast pork last night & 3. I am lazy. Have a fabulous day.....

I don't know why I do it to myself...










So we have just finished erecting the pool fence which took 2 days longer than we had hoped for due to the rain but all the same it is finished. But then my brain started ticking over this morning and in popped the thought lets renovate the kitchen. I never fail to amaze not only myself but my poor Hubbin. Reluctantly he agreed so now our kitchen looks destroyed and I am sitting in front of the computer whilst our friend M and Hubbin are having the time of their lives. (Not tee hee I am so very evil.) Should look rather wonderful once it is finished.




Had a rather painful day yesterday which involved a lot of tears and a visit to the chiropractor. Went to bed fine on Thursday night woke up as a paraplegic on Friday morning. Buggers me what I did but oh my god the woman who fixed me was BRILLIANT!!! Has some very valuable me time yesterday as I could barely move so I sat on my arse and scrapped. If only I had the brilliance that my big sis has!!! I like the way I scrap but I love the way that she scraps!! Always in her shadow I will dwell LOL!!
Have a truly wonderful day.....

what a "sad" new year....




What a rather feeble attempt to celebrate the new year on my behalf!! All pumped and ready to go then Kapow!! 9.30pm hit & a blubbering mess of tiredness I became. The "sad" part was the Sketti (who might I add is only 6) managed to stay awake for a lot longer that what I did. I have come to the conclusion that I am elderly & my days of partying well into the wee hours are all but done & dusted & my memories of these days past have been catalogued then stored in my memory bank where they will dwell until I go through my mid-life crisis. Oh how sad!!!


Then we move on to the shade sail from hell!!


My wonderful brother T came & visited for a few days with his fam. Hubbin & T grabbed the crowbar & shovel & began to erect our shade sail above our pool, some rather large blue poles & a few bags of cement later & it was up. But then.......

the wind blew & blew & blew some more until finally snap one end of the sail let go & started smashing into the pool. Great fun that was trying to grab onto the end of the super thick wire that was flailing around trying to connect with my head!! Hubbin arrived home to discover the shade sail laying in the shed where I threw the stupid thing!
My beautiful nephew KCMF is up for a few weeks holiday. He is such a well mannered & wonderful boy considering how he has been brought up. It is amazing just how strong the human spirit can be & also how even a child can rise above what is thrown at them. My only wish is that he continues to be better that his surroundings as he gets older......
Have a simply glorious day
