Well not too much to update from the last three days, have kinda been lost at my desk scrappin away when i could get the chance - kiddo's start school holidays this week so prob won't get a lot of time to sneak off to scrap. Have been quite productive this week i reckon, I've scrapped these three layouts plus four for Scrapgenie and the 'fathers son' one from last thats eight in not quite a week, not a bad effort at all.............used to take me days to get just one layout done lol. The 'such a poser' layout is only a 9x9 layout though, this is the first time that i have scrapped this size and must admit it was fun, could be quite easy for me to over do it though if i'm not careful, but definetly fun - think i'm gonna do a whole album this size with my favourite pix.

So the news that i was gonna post the other steven has given notice at work!! in roughly two weeks he will be heading back up to Rockhampton to find a job and save up to move us all up to rocky by January next year. BIG huh?? Couldn't believe it when he said he was gonna, he's not normally a decision maker,thats usually my department, but i don't think i could of decided on something this big and well i think he just took the choice out of my hands - am glad he did though. So am both excited and nervous, wish it could be a simple as snapping fingers and it would all be done. Lets just hope it all goes well and steven has no trouble finding a job up there. Is not too bad though, his boss has told him he'll keep his job open for him till the end of the year, so its good to have that security behind us.

So yes.........a little sudden isn't it? Must admit our friends and family have taken it well, we already have some self invites happening lol. We have always said that one day we would move to Queensland, never thought it would be that far north but i must admit, even though we were there just a short time, we all seem to have fallen for the place.

okie well thats about everything for today.......will share the scrapgenie layouts next post.

take care

Hi Julie,
WOW, that is awsome. Steven was hinting bad when you were up that he wanted to move... And now you are. Thats unreal. So we will be able to catch up a lot more.
Hope all goes well when Steven comes up to look for work, and that your move is easy and not stressful. I bet the kids are excited...
Talk soon,

Yay!!!! Another scrapbooking playmate for me!!! That is, if Ali doesn't wear you out during the day!!

They're really short staffed where my hubby works - so I don't think it will take too much for Steven to find a job.

Big move though... can't believe you made that decision so quickly!!
