Little bit of shopping, happy mail & reminiscing

Well, today im supposed to be going to the mountains to work, but i've been stuck with a cold all week, which has worked its way into my sinuses behind my eyes (again) so im not feeling all that well, and i've got a doctors appointment tomorrow morning in Sydney to fix me up!
So.. I didnt want to stay cooped up at home all day as sometimes it feels nice to have some fresh air and get the heart pumping again on a walk.. and what a better place to walk than in a scrapbook shop! HAHAHAHA! (I think Matty would disagree with that). So i drove up to the
Scrapbook Moments shop in Belrose and bought some goodies! Mostly just papers, all Basic Grey! I love that brand! I also stopped at Lincraft on the way home and bought some cheap stuff there and some scrapbook album refils!
So, here are my new goodies...

Today i recieved some *happymail* from my best freind Georgie! When we were younger, we both used to collect Anne Geddes cards, we both have albums full of them. We were both obsessed with anything to do with babies, and we were always babysitting together! So, thanks so much G, for thinking of me when you saw this card! It was a lovely surprise in the letterbox!
We dont live close to eachother any more, but on the rare occasion that we do see eachother, its like we have never been apart, its great!
Here are a couple of photos of us waaay back in 2005, when we were taking photos of ourselves on the beach with the camera on timer (onlookers must of thought we were nuts!!)

Xx Jess
