I've nearly caught up...we have had a huge week - me sicker than I have been in a long time and in hospital, week 2 of Uni, Jeff's family from Ireland arriving and Jeff's 40th birthday - with friends from Texas and Gold Coast making the trip up...Thanks guys!!
I found my camera TODAY....but I have been promised some photos of the weekend from Row - a fellow scrapbooker, seems we both picked up the same hobby since not seeing each other 8 years ago!!
But I did take a photo of THIS. On day 2 of every visit we seem to always have a major accident - Dad falling in the Thames and breaking his leg in London, Jeff's Mum falling over in a carpark and breaking her elbow when she was out last we got through day 2 with NO INJURIES...and then on day 3..............poor little Indiah ran straight into the glass door and knocked herself silly...Thank God it was safety glass - considering that the door has been in there for God knows how long - she got away with a concussion and bruises - the 2 breaks are her head and knee hitting the could have been a lot worse............ what is it with us and visitors???????
Anyway - the Irish contingent are having a great time - recovering from St.Patrick's Day and having a quiet one tonight, before going to Lady Musgrave Island tomorrow...
BTW -- A huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MRS THORNE!!! who celebrated a v. special birthday on Friday..... I have a bottle of bubbly just waiting to have a belated celebration mate!!

I think it's going to get a little windy:

Tropical Cyclone Hamish has been upgraded to Category 5 and is heading down the coast toward us - it is very dark and gloomy and has just started to rain - so Bundy is battening down the hatches - Jeff is supposed to fly home from Brisbane tonight - if the cyclone keeps heading this way - then he won't be on a plane!! Good luck to everyone up north - let's hope that this cyclone peters out and doesn't cross the coast.

just some photos

It is still so hot up here - we try to go somewhere after school to run off the remainder of the energy - yesterday we headed to the zoo..

and the good news is that the CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG!! Thank God - I hate keeping secrets.. Jeff's Father and 2 sisters are arriving next week to celebrate his 40th birthday - I have been keeping the secret for ages - and I am so glad that he finally knows....I think he thought that I had made a new special friend at uni with all the deleted emails and dodgy phone calls!!
So the Summer of 69 Party is gearing up!!!

Sunday, sunday..

so good to me...
Well the creaking that you hear are the cogs and wheels of my rusty old brain slowly winding itself up...after many years of lack of use!!. I have had a fantastic week at uni - feeling ok about it all now. the workload is daunting, but the availability of help and support is pretty poor old scrapbooking has a timeslot of Friday nights only (to start with anyway) - until I get the hang of it and get through the 1st 12 weeks are are apparently pretty full on..
anyway, on another note:
The winners have been announced over at One Little Aussie Word - so pop over and have a look at the beautiful layouts that were entered in our first challenge...a huge thank you to the creative team - I can't wait to see what they come up with this month!!! I have managed to finish one Layout!! the title says it all...he's just delightful.
So off to bed..
oh and a HUGE Congratulations to Mrs Cassandra Thorne!! A little birdie told me you are being published in NZ!!!! you BAAAAAAAd girl.Way to go girl!!
