finally some layouts!

here's a couple of recent creations....
heaps more to come soon as I've been doing some shopping the last few days. Now just gotta wait for it all to arrive, that's the hard bit isn't it? (oh and hoping the postie arrives sometime when hubby isn't here, lol)

no idea why I get these sideways images but it ticks me off. have tried making the pics smaller but it ain't working today!

no RAK today (SORRY!) had a bit of a busy day and then ended up having to rush Leroy up to the Drs complaining of sever ear pain. Turns out he has Tonisillitis and inflamed ear drums... so YET ANOTHER round of anti-biotics for him. better get him eating some good yoghurt I think!
While we were up there waiting for his scripts I thought we'd pop in to Woolies and get a few things for dinner. I was just about done and Leroy says he needs to do a poo. I told him ok, go to the girls toilet and I'll be right there (just needed to go thru express lane checkout and could see the entrance to the loo from wehre I was standing) Anyway so I'm just going there after paying and almost run into this girl in the door and she asks if that's my kid in there as he's in there crying. Tuned out he made it to the cubicle but didn't manage to get his pants off and did wee & poo in his undies and school pants - made a big mess. He was so embarressed, the poor thing. I had no clothes for him so had to get him to sit naked except for his shirt in the pram with a magazine folded over his lap. He was so mortified that someone would see him. TYhis is the child who won't even go swimming without a rash shirt on incase someone see him so you just imaging how he felt. Luckily we didn't see anyone he knew after this but there were a couple of young boys looking and pointing at him in the chemist and I just wanmted to scoop him in my arms and protect him like he was a baby (not much chance of that at 24.5kg)
We were glad to get home that's for sure!
I will be back with the giveaway by the end of the weekend.

So what do you think??

I'm sure you've noticed I've given my blog a makeover, lol. Bit hard to miss isn't it? I just couldn't go past this background given that I'm living in a year round summer at the moment - it does make me feel like this image at times, lol. So anyway let me know what you think... is it too much?

Be back tomorrow with some layouts and a RAK giveaway :)

I am still here!!

been a long time. oops. well we are still here, lol. all moved into our new house, which BTW is just TOPS. was a great time for us to move. been very quiet on the scrapping front the last couple of weeks as I've been having a HUGE de-clutter as we've gone into a smaller house and I must say I'm loving being in a smaller house. less space for the kids to mess up and less to clean. but also just loving the more simple approach. 'tis a very nice house too with a fab outdoor area, that helps keep me and the kids sane. also has some gorgeous feature walls which I'm planning on doing a photo shoot of the kids in front of. we are just finishing week 3 of our 4 week mid-semester break here in the NT, it's been nice having Leroy around, he and Isaac have been loving each others company (with a bit of fighting and bickering thrown in for good measure - wouldn't be brothers otherwise would they?!) So next week is the last week and Mathew has a few more days off and we are going to play tourist around Darwin and do some stuff - have done not much at all yet, been kept busy participating in the great school holiday program at the local library.
my new scrap space in the new house is awesome too! now just to find my mojo... might be packed away some where I think?? just hope I didn't throw it out with all the de-cluttering ;) I'm sure I'll find it this weekend as I simply MUST as I need to prepare a layout and challenge for our CC at LSBS next weekend!
be back soon!
