HOLIDAYS??????? I have 2 weeks!!! YAY!!!

but it still doesn't FEEL LIKE IT...... maybe in a couple days, when I don't have to get up at 4.30am it might really start to hit me that I am actually on holidays!!!! I feel exhausted and rally needing some R & R ....BUT.....
I have lots to do..... I haven't finished Christmas shopping :-(...... Next year I think I will get it done earlier..... it feels like a chore rather than a pleasure this year.

Anyhow I have to share what I did yesterday.......... I made my 6yr grandson cry!!!!! I bet he will NEVER forgive me....EVER!!!!

I went to scrap with my daughter and Kerry Murray (visiting from Adelaide for the weekend)...... when Chei ran inside and said his tooth just fell out... he was ok with that...then there was a flurry of cameras and tissues... (note* cameras first then oh a tissue...LOL)....... OK drama over!!!

UNTIL.......... a little later on I was passing Cheis room and sawa glass of water in his room, I promptly took it out & poured the water down the sink!..........I FREAK OUT when I see any liquids near carpet.. especially in Cheis room!!....(you can guess, but I didn't)

A little while later Chei came running in frantic asking where the glass with his tooth is?.......................... OH NO!!!!!!!!!! I asked the one in your bedroom? YES!!!!!!!
 I then had to tell him the bad news......... WELL you can guess what happened next......... He was HYSTERICAL!!!!!!!!!! Lucky Charmane and Kerry were there to help with a solution!!!

He wrote a letter to the TOOTH FAIRY to explain that his Nan threw out his tooth by mistake........... but I know he will NEVER forgive me...............EVER!!!!!

Kerry showed Charm & I how to make some gorgeous punched flowers........ bit fiddly, but fun and quite therapeutic...........I feel another addiction coming on....LOL........ I'll put up some photos when I get my LO finished.....

TICK, TICK, TICK................ Time is going so fast......

and I still haven't done any Christmas Shopping...... eeeeek!

So how is your Christmas Shopping going? Started? Finished?..... well I am not trying to stress out too much with the 'shopping' this year....... but I am sooooooooooo thrilled to have my daughter and partner and my 3 gorgeous, funny, grandchildren living here now, so we have the WHOLE FAMILY together again at last!!!

I DID put up our CHRISTMAS TREE today though!!! I think it looks gorgeous. I took a couple of photos with my mobile
I bought new decorations this year... and went for Bronze & Gold theme......






Pretty happy with it!
I'm disappointed I missed the Annual Toy Run yesterday . Local bike riders gather together at the Lakes in Mount Gambier with toys to be distributed amongst local needy children. It's my own fault ...... we had a work Dinner on Friday night, and I didn't get to bed till early in the morning.....it was great weather for the bike Run and heard there was around 200 riders this year. I love the roar of the bikes when they do a little ride down the main street and the Old Folks Homes.... all with POLICE ESCORT!!! People have to stop and let all the bikes go through and everybody waves...... some riders even "dress up" in costumes..... the kids LOVE IT!!

As some of you may not know I also have a couple of businesses going, (besides working PT at the local Hospital in Theatre and Day Surgery).......

I'd love you to visit them both, leave a message and check out some great gift ideas!!!

KRAZEE KAPS, selling Scrub and Catering Hats and 

FATAZ BEAN BAGZ, selling 1.2mt, 1.5mt and 2mt round Bean Bags......... both have a "SHOP" on 

Facebook where you can place an order and purchase for immediate delivery!!! 



Thanks for visiting... leave a comment and I will pop in and visit you too sometime soon.

Cheers
Bronnyk

The Rules:
The WORD can be used in the title, in the journalling or ANYWHERE on the page/project as long as it's VISIBLE and a feature - we don't want it HIDDEN it has to be seen!
The Dominant Colour MUST be dominant - you must use it so that it is the MOST NOTICEABLE of the colours you use on your page!

Want to be on the Creative Team? I will be keeping an eye out for the next few months or so, to see who regularly contributes AND is inspirational and most creative! We will be limiting the number on the Creative Team as I am wanting to "keep it simple" this time around....

On Mothers' day Charm and family invited us for a lovely lunch, (Ashan made the Curry Chicken Sri Lankan style), rice, salad and Dahl...... and to top it off we had yummy Butterfly cakes for dessert....

I love this card I got from Charm.......
AND..........from the Grandies, I got a really, really pretty glasses chain....(which they bought from the School Mother's Day stall)......(I think Charm must have remembered me complaining about the old one I had)
and the best part is my glasses don't fall off!!!LOL

Thank you so much.....for a lovely day...MWAH!!!!!
