All is well.........

Well we are all fit and healthy again - YAY!! Thank you all so much for the well wishes you sent last entry, really meant alot thank you!!

Has been a busy week trying to catch up on all the things that go undone when your busy tending to other things. The housework was a huge job after being left for a few days, but it's all sparkly here again and you can just feel Spring coming. Love sitting in the scraproom in the evening and feeling the breeze that floats through - so very refreshing.

Saturday was a big clean up day whilst Steven was at work. Is sooooo frustrating trying to clean with all three kiddo's home. For the most part they were helpful - Ry was particularly helpful in pulling things out after being put away and saying 'this Mummy?' Yes Ry, that has to go away sweetie lol, that's all he did - pull things out to ask if he should put it away. But on the bright side, at least it kept him occupied.

Saturday night Steven went round to the Russells to have a little game time on their new playstation 3 he'd recently bought, so being unable to head down to the shoppe to scrap with the chickies they came here instead. They are just the cooliest aren't they? So glad to have friends like these ladies - they make living up here in Rocky so very easy.

Sunday morning was a little more cleaning and then in the arvo we all headed over to the Russells for a little fun in the sun. Stuck the sprinkler out on their huge lawn and let the kiddo's run amok - they all had a total blast. Was just a beautiful day for it. Here's some pix of the kiddo's at play.
not sure why the first two pix are repeated at the end of the collage - but oh well, they're cute anyway lol.
Have added a post to the Designers at Embellished blog today, just sharing a little technique that I'm loving at the moment. Am also running a little comp there for this as well - SO GO CHECK IT OUT - is a cool little prize. Here's the link for it - BUBBLEWRAP
So have a go at this fun technique and leave me a link in the comments section so I can check out your work. Comp finishes Monday 3rd Sept.
Am loving being able to get back into my scraproom at nights. After feeling so 'blah' about my scrapping recently/plus not being well, have really been getting back into it and having fun. Well that's all for now, time to go feed the starving kiddo's here - mind you afternoon tea was only about an hour ago lol - but will leave you with some layouts that I've done over the last few nights:
take care and will chat soon

Cleaning don't you just love how a few days of letting things slide for one reason or another always ends up looking like you haven't done a thing in weeks, I especially hate the catching up on the washing AARRGGHH.

Great pics of the kiddos have a good ol play and yep have to agree opening up the kitchen window in the morning the last 2 days has been lovely you can actually smell spring in the air with the warm breeze (mind you we will be complaining that it is to hot before we know it LOL).

Gorgeous LOs as always Julie

Great to hear you are all over your sicknesses Julie. Wanta come here and clean - so wish that I could get on top of mine - it seems to be piling up around me at an alarming rate.

Ohhhh Charlotte likes to help with the cleaning too. Crazy crazy kids. Just did her room, OMG it was disgusting.

Love these works. Always devine and just beautifully done. Was just saying to Ang yesterday that what ever you do it's always up there, you never drop your game, if you get what I'm saying.

Anyways best be off.
