This Week...

Hi Everyone!!!
Well I feel like I havent done any blogging in ages!! I think thats because I havent had the time to scrap anything!!!
So firstly... on monday when I arrived home from my weekend away at work I got a gorgeous surprise!! The "Pay It Forward" that I won from
Debbie's blog had arrived!!! Thank you SO MUCH Debbie!! You put so much work and thought into this gift and it has made me very happy!!!
So here is the creation Debbie made:

Each little drawer was filled with scrapbooking goodies (and candy!)
This week I looked after Jade on monday only in the afternoon, but she came to Narrabeen! It was so fun to have her on an 'outing'!! I took her on a big walk in her pram! She was a good girl!!
Then on tuesday i looked after her for the whole day!! She was being such a happy baby!! I think she was just as excited as I was to have beautiful WARM weather!!! I then took her to her friend's 1st birthday party in the afternoon.. it was great fun!!

Here is a piccie I took of her with my mobile phone on tuesday! Such a cutie!
Matty and I went out to dinner and 10 pin bowling on monday night!! It was good fun! We rarely get to see eachother much now days! Hopefully that will change soon!! I got tagged twice this week by the lovely Jomma and Mel Moore! Thank you girls!! This tag means a lot to me!!! "This award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world."

So I have decided to pass this award onto
Jill Scripps

I really enjoy reading your blog(s) and also to many other ladies out there!!

Well, thats about all my news for the week so far!!!
Hopefully i'll get a bit of scrapbooking done so i'll have some show'n'tell soon!!!
Have a great weekend!!

Rain rain go away...


I've got a bit of monday randomness for you all!! Not much happening with me at the moment really!
This morning I met up with
Siany. We went indoor climbing at Climb Fit for the morning!! It was good fun!!
In the afternoon Matty and I went around to all the phone shops in Warringah Mall cos we want to change internet servers! We had a pretty productive afternoon but still havent made the change yet!

So, im addicted to
facebook. And its been popping up all over the news lately.. and i've finally got it! Its great to catch up and find friends on it!! Nothing much happens on there but its addictive anyways!!

My good friend Daria's baby Kaia is now 4 weeks old and has hit the 1kg mark on the scale!! I havent been able to go visit again, but just thought i'd let you know that Im thinking of you Daria, Marty and Kaia!!

Well, the new challenge is up on our two girls challenges blog. Please go and visit it if your into doing fun and easy challenges!! Here's a sneak peak of my layout for this week...

Tomorrow im nannying Jade and then off hopefully for a climb with my friend Bec!! We havent been together in a few weeks so it'll be good to catch up and climb together again!

Well, i hope everyone is having a fantastic week so far!!!
Hope to post again soon with my Emily cards up to date!!! (fingers crossed)

Our Holiday in Perth!!

Well, we've been back for almost a week already and i havent had a chance to blog about our great holiday in Perth!!
We had an awesome time!! I had never been to Perth before! I loved it!!! What a beautiful and clean city!!!
So i thought i wont write too much.. i'll just show you our holiday in pictures...
Our main reasons for going to Perth was so Matty and our good friend Kato could compete in the
Mulitplex Avon Descent. Which is a race where competitors challenge the Avon and Swan rivers in a variety of paddle and power craft in an exciting two-day time trial over 134 gruelling kilometres!!
I was the support crew for both the boys.. so i had to drive and meet them at various check points to see how they were going, cheer them on and feed them!! I was pretty stressed - lol!
Day one: both boys did real well


Day two: um, well matty fell out at the top of a rapid which lead to his boat being cracked which me managed to fix.. but it cos matty a good place in the race but he managed to finish.
Kato, on the other hand.... well had crashed into another kayak on the way down a rapid.. and his legs got jammed into his kayak and he was stuck in his kayak in the middle of the rapid for about 3 minutes! Scary!! So he had to pull out of the race.. due to a broken kayak....

Kato's kayak

The boys looking closely at the dammage

Close up of one bit of dammage (there's lots more)

Matty's Blister after two days of racing! Ouch!!

After the race Matty and I went and discovered a bit of Perth! We visited the Freemantle Gaol, which was reall interesting! We also visited a submarine (yawn) I think it was boring cos of the guide we had!! We spent a whole day in Freemantle - LOVE it there! So many beautiful buildings!!!
Here are some pics....

View of Perth from Kings Park

In Freemantle

We stayed in real crapy hotel rooms up until the last night where we went and stayed by the beach in Scarburgh - nice!

the sunset over the Ocean!I love going on holidays!!! Cant wait for my next holiday!!!!

Tag... You're it!!!

I have been tagged by the lovely Kate and i have to say... i really love this tag! Its a great way to get people sending off regular mail.. so that when you check your letter box there aren't only bills in there!!!!
The rules are easy!!
1) Send ONE card to someone you know within 7 days! (family, friends, associates, cyber people, etc.) ANYONE!!! Doesn't matter who... just do it. Can you imagine the smile on their face when they open their mailbox and see a card from you?
2) Tag (yes, I know, but this is the only way to spread this) 5 people you know to do the same thing (Tag means tag them to send their own cards to their own people).

3) Proudly display this on your blog to spread a little sunshine and pass it on.

So here goes...
I tag you...
Siany, Anna, Lisa, Gigi & Nicole!!!
Have fun with this tag!! And remember.. sending and/or recieving a card can brighten your day!!
