OMG- what happened to this week??- shee's it just FLEW PAST! But it's weekend again and time to breath a little! WOOT! With Waynes rugby team in the finals this weekend though it might be a LOUD one- hahaha. Deon and some other friends are coming here to watch it- and I'm sure the cocktail maker will be popping out of the cupboard ;-P

Oh goodness, yesterday my sis Gaye( GS Creations) was telling the DSO designers group what a little *madam* Caden has become and how much she takes after me- HUH? I was a little madam?? BWWWWAHAHAHA- according to Gaye I filled the shoes well! And too funny as I had some photo's of Caden that I was bragging with and everyone kept commenting on just how much Caden looks like me-


Poor thing! lol, That was me just over a year old and the one on the left is a latest one of dear Caden - UNCANNY huh? I better go visit before she starts wearing make up! lol, she's got sooo big so quickly!

And so it begins

Well Nathan's LAST official school exams have started! He wrote IT yesterday and English one today. He said they both went well but said he panicked on the first question today (English) which was- explain and write a comprehension on what you think procrastination means- BWWWWWWAHAHAHA. I looked at him and said *NATHAN??? *insert big eyes here* , You procrastinate EVERYDAY!, he just started laughing and said- Mom, I got it 5 minutes later- I think I was just stressed and worried and couldn't for the life of me remember what it meant- hahahahahaha. He's the KING of procrastination- so hopefully he gets the full 20 marks for that one huh?

Shelby girl, if you reading today- thanks soooo much for my *VERY early morning phone call*- hee hee. Shelby phoned me from the States forgetting the time differences and had Wayne jumping up and running for the phone in the nude this morning- toooo funny! Nothing like an eyefull when you get woken up huh?- BWWWWAHAHA. Poor Shelby had to wait till I started making sense too as it took a while to get my voice and brain going.- hahaha. Was sooo good to here from you my dear friend. THANK YOU, and no matter what time of the day or night- anytime is a pleasure!

Don't forget my Candy Christmas is still on SALE ( yes a little early for Christmas I know but if you like me - I'm already planning cards and presents etc-lol)

Wet and Cold

arrgh- where did the spring go- lol. Today is dark, cold and raining. Great for working in but not so good for that happy spring feeling- hahahaha.

I had a wonderful quiet weekend and had a fantastic family lunch at my Dad's yesterday. He cooked us roast Water hog- NO LIES! My dad has this thing about trying all these exotic recipes and LOVES cooking- not that we complain as we get to be guinea pigs- haha. It was good, and has a wild meat taste that is quiet subtle compared to most Wild meats. THANKS DAD!!

My voice is back completely now too and staying at home this weekend was a GOOD thing- hahahaha. Yup- we ignored the plea's and begs on the phone and Wayne kept his word- WOOHOOO!

He also did a 5km Fun Run on Saturday morning in aid of Breast Cancer with my little friend Ant (yup both wearing PINK). - ME??? you got to be kidding-LOL, I run others around the bend rather- hahahaha. They both won a medal and were really chuffed with themselves as they haven't run in a while ;-)

OMG_ my CT have been playing up a storm with my new kit!- WOOT WOOT- and I even played with it last night- YEAH, I SCRAPPED again ( maybe that's why the weather got so bad huh?-lol)

Makes for a very happy chappy this side- lol My music is playing and even my housekeeper is singing along behind me- lol.

HAHAHA- well I got my voice back- ok, not entirely there but at least enough to talk today with out straining. I still sound like a old diesel engine starting up in the morning- rather rough round the edges- but hey- I'm happy I don't have to repeat myself all the time now- LOL

Kim, I hope your voice has come back too. ;-)

OMG- do you know when you get sooo involved in something that you don't know what time it is??- Well I've been busy with a kit that I was having sooo much fun on that I looked up this evening from Photoshop ONLY because it was sort of getting very dark around me ! HAHA. I looked up and it was 7pm already!

Wanna see just a little??_ lol


-and I'm sitting here now blogging at night! hahaha- which is totally weird too. But I feel content as the kitten that stole the cream - but have a very hungry son shouting what's for supper. Supper???- Oh gees, lol-looks like we're going to be eating out- yeah, out of a box, tin or something that takes 20 minutes- HAHAHA. -OOOOOPS ;-)
