This is what summer is all about....

Yay!!! the stress of Christmas is over & the holidays finally feel like they have begun. We have been swimming, having BBQ's, bouncing on the new trampoline, have friends over for a few drinks, etc. I have even finally got a sleep in this morning, which was nice. The top pic is Scott throwing Nicola, the lower is Daniel & Uncle Evan who is visiting from Denmark for Christmas this year.

I think I have found my mojo again too!!! Maybe it was hiding with this years Christmas Spirit? Nicola & I have just finished a LO of her at a friends birthday party with her face painted. It was her idea to put he heart in the middle of the flower & I think i t looks cool. What this space I think we have an up-and-coming junior scrapper on my hands

I think I have a hang over!

hehe, this is blog worthy cos it's my first one ever! We were playing drinking games with friends the other night & it turns out they all started cheating on the shots except me! I felt fine yesterday, but this morning I feel like my head is floating 3 feet above my body, very weird. You will be pleased to know I am feeling better now (had some food & lots of water). And no I didn't get to sleep in, the kids were in bed with me saying 'shhh, mummy's sleeping' is very loud voices, hehe.

Merry Christmas to you all!

Well here we are on the 'other side' of Christmas. The kids had a great day yesterday, but Santa did forget about us adults :-( Yesterday morning started bright & early with the kids ringing Nana & Popa at 6:30 to "hurry up" They did ok, but knew most of there presents cos they had helped us choose. Daniel was most excited about his 'Club Penguin' Igloo & Nicola was excited about getting her own real camera (now she doesn't have to borrow mums) They were also very excited when they saw that Santa bought them a trampoline!!! They both think they heard Santa & his elves building it on Christmas Eve. Then we were off to lunch at Craig & Mel's & more pressies. The highlights for me were the dress mum gave me (that we chose together on Christmas Eve) & the scrapbooking stuff Evan & Hanne brought from their holiday in Sweden, (how cool is that!) So after stuffing ourselves with 3 courses of lunch, we went to Nana & Popa's for 'dinner'!! We were so full but yet we still ate more, lol! My Lemon Meringue Pie went down well, but the kids weren't impressed & only ate strawberries & ice-cream all day.
Another early start this morning (third in a row!!!) & we were off to the boxing day sales for presents for mummy & daddy. The kids got to spend their Xmas money & dad got a new fishing rod, (guess where he is right now). I managed to squeeze in a quick stop at a jewelery store & got myself a half price dress ring, but still haven't found any togs I like :-(

No I still haven't finished the advent calander, it is looking good, but i am getting 'over it'. Yes I know the drawers are upside down. When we took the lollies out & counted that day I didn't know what to do with them so I just put them back in upside down so they didn't get lost or damaged. If I am lucky I might have it finished by next Xmas (don't mention the other 2 I bought for presents,ok). I found some tiny playing cards in a Christmas Cracker & have swiped them for my scrapbooking.

Anyone seen my mojo?

I seem to have lost it. I have 1 advent calander to finish & another 2 I haven't even started (still in their wrapping) I just look at my desk & ......nothing. I have some presents to be made too, hmmmmm, think they will be birthday presents now.
