bad, bad blogger!!






I know - but life keeps getting in the way! I am SO lucky at the moment and grateful to be able to spend time at home with my new little boy - it's time that I wasn't able to take with the other two - and I am just ignoring boring things like housework and grocery shopping and just playing and cuddling..
So another big chain has closed most or all their stores - who would have thought that Starbucks would be struggling?? Just goes to show the economic climate that we are in. Still - there is a lot of whingeing going on in this country - about the price of fuel, food etc, etc..you know what - GET A GRIP - there are people in this world bringing up their families in war zones, people who have children with cancer..
I am grateful to have a warm home, a husband who works hard and loves us, parents who get to spend time with their grandchildren and food on the table. If we can't afford to go away on the weekend or eat fresh seafood and drive a flash car- I think that is a very small price to pay.
WAKE UP AUSTRALIA!!!!
Anyway, I will get off my high horse now!!
I have manged to do a few layouts..
