Work, work, work, that's all I seem to be doing lately

They say "No rest for the wicked". I must've been REALLY NAUGHTY!!!!!!!

You remember the 'CHALLENGE ME' book where I paste all the challenges I want to do each month?

Well, I haven't had a chance to do ANY challenges this month!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So much happens each day, and I am soooo tired, I just can't motivated to do any. I have had one LO on the dining table since the beginning of the month, and all that's happened is, it has been shuffled from one end of the table to the other.

I have been sorting photos though.

The reason why I started sorting photos was for Bon's Retreat in 11 days time. OOOOOhhh getting close now..... I had the photos in plastic bags, partly sorted, but it was time consuming going through the packs. So I have bought some large cheap photo albums with the slip in pouches. They were only $8-98 from Coles and hold 300 photos. It will be much easierto flip through the albums to find the perfect pic to scrap now LOL

I found a 6 x 4 file box which is perfect for the photos. I then made 'Year' inserts and stood them up so I can easily see what year. It's been a bit of a pain, because we only got our digi camera in July 2005, so everything before that I have to rely on the memory. Nope I didn't put the dates on the back of any photos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have learnt my lesson! From now on ANY photos that I print I have the dates ready to write on the back of them.

Well, must be off, just got another phone call, I'm needed back at work! Oh brother!!!!!

It’s Regan’s 5th Birthday today!!!

We bought Regan (DH Grandson) a little computer with learning & fun games on. It even has a mouse & mouse pad.

He seemed pretty happy with it, but he was probably more excited about going to his Uma (Nan) for a bit of a birthday party, with lots of cake & sugary drinks. LOL

We had some really sad news, a friend who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer about 3 weeks ago gave up the fight today. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and children at this sad time. We hope they find comfort knowing he is suffering no longer.

My mum rang tonight and told me she has to have a full hip replacement operation. Not sure when, she is hoping it will be real soon, she is in heaps of pain.

Now on a happier note. Here are my 2 Grandchildren Chei & Harmony. Charmane & Ashan took them to see Ice Age 3D version, & these are the 3D glasses they had to wear. They crack me up!!!

Thought about it

for a second then changed our minds about going for a ride, too windy. Although Fred went for a ride on MY bike while I went to the gym!!!!

I can’t wait to go for a ride & put some more photos on the blog..…..Just for Steve. LOL

I haven’t scrapped all week! I have a partly started Lay Out on the table, but it’s been another one of THOSE weeks again. Next week is not going to be any better. I have a couple extra private jobs and of course my regular job from 5am-9am. I always (well almost) make time to go to the gym. It’s my THERAPY!

Today I spent most of my day here on the computer sorting photos into folders & typing up invoices ready for the end of the month. Yeah I know bit early, but I have to start thinking about getting my butt into gear for the retreat in 20 days time!!!!! Woo Hooo I will also be spending a few extra days with my daughter after the retreat as well, and I am really excited as I haven’t seen her  and the grandys for ages.

Ok bit more to get done on here then off to bed, up @ 4am. Oh brother!!!!

Long time no see....LOL

I finally finished the 21st Birthday Mini Album for my Step daughter.

I loved how it turned out. It was lots of fun. Every page is different.
We took photos at her 21st Birthday Party on Saturday. Just a few family & friends at a local Restuarant. I have printed and cropped them and completed the last page, but I need a nice day to take a few more photos & upload.
I haven't done any other scrapping, bit annoyed by that, cos I have a list of challenges I pledged I would do before the end of the month.......... I think I got 'burnt out' with the mini album, it was eighteen 8x8 pages!!!!!!!!!
Tomorrow is the usual early start at work in the morning, then I must go grocery shopping, we need fresh fruit & vegies. After lunch go to the gym, and I am on call to work again in the afternoon. (I hope I'm not needed), I would rather stay home and scrap!!!
That's all for now, till next time.
