As Jack Says, Gone!

Yep, that's right - Gone! I've gone and bought tickets to melbourne for The Ball. Only a few weeks and counting. Can't wait to see all my old wonderful friends and family. I can feel the fresh air on my face already (that's the fresh air at 7.05am).
After working til midnight one night last week we had bad health in our house - gastro and all related yuckies. Poor DS, can feel his ribs now - he loses weight so quickly. His favourite drink now is lemonade. Oops. Don't tell Dad.
Went to a first birthday party today. Would you feel weird if you heard them cheering after the goodbyes had been said and the door had been closed behind you?

yes it's the long weekend and Guy Fawkes' ghost is visiting our capital. Today we saw firecrackers being sold over 'the card table' in the middle of the mall. Never mind the poor dogs, what about the poor toddlers trying to sleep and being scared by all the big bangs?
I always worried that I wasn't accomplishing enough but really I think I'm alright. We've had the MIL and BIL for lunch on Saturday. The BIL was happy and talking 100 miles an hour to DS. The MIL was on her way to her sister's on the westcoast, and very nervous about the flight. DH took MIL and BIL to airport, left me with a ratty DS and it took two minutes for me to work out why he was ratty - RALPH! All over me, him, the kitchen floor, his toys, everything. Then when he was cleaned up - RALPH! AGAIN! Poor thing gets quite distressed at yuckies - I think it was the egg I gave him. Then yesterday, despite the pelting rain, we had a day of clean ups and washing, washing, and more washing. Today we went to the mall to get some photos printed and to Bunnings. Thank God for the craft aisle is all I say. We bought a rubber mallet for DS' toolbox and a tool belt for DS that DH claimed when we got home....! DS has been following DH around and helping him fix everything and uses the hammer, the screwdriver and the nuts and bolts with ease (I'm worried about my towel rail). So I cleared out my stuff out of a toolbox and it's now DS'.
Tonight was THE night for DS to move into the Big Bed. My DS is a legend. Straight into bed, storytime and asleep quick as a wink. Awesome. As Usual.
But the best thing about the weekend was talking to GF. Really good to talk to her. Swore our head off at each other as usual. Vented our spleens about the relatives. Excellent! Where would I be without my HB? Talking about relatives, had a talk (took me 6 months to pick up the phone) with my Sis. Who tells me she was allergic to egg too. It's my nephew's birthday today - happy birthday DF! Hope you had a good one. Greetings to those in our gene pool in Honolulu and may the nits of a thousand camels invade my father's armpits for what he is doing to my sister and her family.
Must off. Lots of scrapbooking to do.

Change is a bad thing

I was told today to pack my bags and move desk. OMG. I'm going to miss my warm and fuzzy friend. I think they're trying to get us to stop talking to each other so much - but we're happy talking. If we're happy, they should be happy.

And I'm sure its not a good thing that there is MOULD ON THE CARPET IN THE OFFICE. I'm sure there's a law about it - I just have to find the precedent.

happy thoughts

Current project is a purse album for a dear girlfriend who needs a laugh. Will see them soon in Melbourne for a party, party, P.A.R.T.Y!


so excitement

well. here I am - a blogger. amazing what scrapbooking does to you isn't it?
Everyone is doing it so I thought I would put a HUGE flag out there and you never know my family might read it - I've been waiting for a phone call for 10 years but miracles can happen.
Work was busy today, got home and Jack (DS) is in the garden with John (DH) playing with the hose and the dog bowl and its 8 degrees. Covered in mud and grass and having a ball - smiling from ear to ear. John was putting the finishing touches to the front fence and was similarly covered in mud, water and grass. Should I be happy or irritated. They're happy. So am I.
Finished a farewell 'card' for a colleague at work - ended up being a mini album in a box and received the comments 'Awesome', 'You should get paid for this' (thanks a ScraptheLot voucher will do) and 'Can you do one for me?' (YES - just send photos). I really enjoy doing them for my friends at work - the enjoyment for me is watching their faces when they open it.
Must go. Mother-in-law is visiting tomorrow on her way to Perth, so must clean the house.
