Our Christmas was wonderful, I hope yours was too!
Here's a pic of three kids you might recognise! Notice Jacob's toothless grin. The second top tooth came out last week, but he thought it would be cool for Santa AND the Tooth Fairy to come on the same night, so we "hid" the tooth until Christmas Eve. Sure enough, the Tooth Fairy may have actually seen Santa, as they both paid a visit to our house on Christmas Eve!!!

Creation Explosion over here! Perhaps it's because I'm procrastinating and trying to avoid painting the house! Shhhhh. Don't tell Steve.
This card was inspired by sketch #43 over at CPS. Those sketches just keep getting better and better!
The gorgeous brown felt scallops are from Remember When. I just love their felt range.
Speaking of their felt range, check out these adorable little birdies. They come in a variety of sizes in a packet. I am in love with them!

Where does the time go? I am appearing very slack, and yet life is super busy and I certainly do not feel slack!
I am falling behind with this blog, due to the fact that I rarely get onto the computer out in the rumpus room these days, and this is the computer that the pics are all on. So, I shall blog in the absence of pictures!
The biggest news is that I've had my hair cut. Oh, it feels soooooo good. So much hair was cut off. It's a bit like the pics of Rihanna a few months ago. Sort of a bob, a bit longer at the front than the back, but not at all "Posh". Got the greys eradicated for the short term. Wish the suckers would be taken care of for good...
Not much creating going on... I'm working on a couple of projects to give to the kids teachers as gifts, but apart from that, time is being taken up with a series of social engagements. I love this time of year!!! I've just come home from a night out to dinner with the girls from Kinder. Once again, I am filled with a sense of warmth and community spirit. I'm so glad we moved back to Bendigo, a small town, where neighbours are your friends, and the Mum's you say hello to when you drop the kids off at kinder or school, actually become your friends and confidantes. This is what I wanted for my kids. To grow up surrounded by people who care and are looking out for them while they are out in the community, as opposed to the big cities, where you can go shopping or on an outing and not see a soul you know. I'm rambling now, but it just makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside.
Okay, next time I post (going by the frequency of previous posts, expect one some time about July 2008) I'll include some pics. Blog Candy.

Here's a little card I made, inspired by sketch #39 over at CPS http://cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com/
The cute reindeer is a chipboard number from Remember When. The stamp is from stampin up, and of course the paper is brought to you by Basic Grey.
I was going to share the numerous Christmas cards I have made, but thought this would spoil the surprise for those of you on my list!!
We bought seasons passes for the swimming pool again this year. Over the summer holidays, the kids are happy to spend the majority of the day at the pool, and it's nice for me to chill with a book, or with a friend just chatting about this and that. The kids are all swim safe, but I think I'll get them into lessons this summer. Just to advance their technique in readiness for school sports and for life skills in general.
I'm soaking up the last few weeks of having Oscar home with me. I'm sooo ready for him to go to school next year, but I'll miss him. He's great company. He has the most wicked sense of humour, and we have a good time when it's just the two of us home. So, while I won't be in tears on his first day (at least I don't think I will!!) I am determined to make the most of these last few weeks of 2007.

The annual school fair was last night. There's no logical reason why walking around the fair with 3 children should be exhausting, but I came home drained. Lara came home hyped (sugar and excitement) and was still complaining of not being able to sleep at 10.30pm. She'll be one tired little chicky today. Tired and grumpy I think. The kids enjoyed the fair. It was fun, but the flies! Man, they were thick. Enough to incite rage and violence...
The Chrisco came... for some! My freezer is chockers, literally cannot fit another thing in, and we have two big chest freezers. My neighbour, on the other hand, is not getting her frozen food for a few days. Too funny! She has freezer envy...
Okay, will post more later from the other computer and share some stuff I've been working on over the past few days. Might also have an interesting news article to share. (!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I have been working on Christmas cards today. Can you believe that?? Not long to go now. I have only started Xmas shopping. I traditionally leave it to the last minute, why should this year be any different? LOL
I loved Idol last night. Natalie is gorgeous. She's my fave. I think Matt has a good voice, but he drives me insane with his stupid hair.
Hmmmm, not much else to report. Should be getting the Chrisco stuff in the next few days. We'll be living off that for the next 6 months. Last year we had so much we had to go buy a larger chest freezer.

Where has the time gone???? Thought I should update my blog, only to find it's been nearly a month... In my defence, life has been super busy, and I'm sure it will stay that way until after Christmas now.
The house is almost completely rendered now. I'm still in a quandry as to what colour to paint it. I'm leaning towards brown now... Apparently Steve suggested brown some months ago and I emphatically said, "I am not living in a brown house!". I have no recollection of this statement, so I may or may not have utterred those words. LOL
Here's a pic of Steve trying to reach a high part, OH&S-savvy we are NOT!
No bones were broken so all is well that ends well. Could have easily ended in tears though!
The daredevil in question is away in Queensland for an extended weekend, drinking with the boys. He rang me yesterday morning at 11am, and I could tell he was already drunk! Today he's either very sick, or in jail!!!
The street party was a huge hit! The kids just loved the pony.

According to Steve, world peace all hinges on.... wait for it...
Yep. Steve has a breakfast fry-up once per week. The other day as he tucked into his eggs, tomatoes,baked beans and bacon on toast he came up with this gem... (It's not 100% politically correct, but if you're a regular reader of this blog, you'll know that neither am I!)
"If Muslims could just eat Bacon, there'd be no terrorism or war. Bacon is awesome! Everything is made better with bacon".
Hmmmmmmmmmmm. Don't think he'll gain a political seat based on that theory, but it sure made me laugh.

I swear I updated here only a day or so ago... I got a shock when it said it was back in September. Goodness, the time is just flying. In no time at all it'll be Christmas, and then in only another blink of an eye, my baby will start school (insert Annie doing happy dance here).
Speaking of Xmas, I have officially started shopping. Have purchased a Nintendo DS for Lara. Got a bargain on eBay, it came with 5 games. Lara's friend has one, and they drag it out everytime they are together. Lara wants one too, so they can "connect and play the Dog game" whatever that means! Thank goodness we're not hosting the event again this year. It was nice, but very stressful and busy last year. Felt like all I did was stay chained to the oven, then had to trot off to work night duty on Christmas night. :( This year I have 5 WONDERFUL WEEKS annual leave over Christmas and into January. We plan to go away for a week or two, and the rest of the time will be spent with family and friends. Just lovely.
The house is fully rendered now! It looks so different, and so much more modern. The fence is nearly painted, we just had to agree on a colour to paint the house. I think we have agreed, but I'm not sure if Steve's just "given in" and perhaps he's not truly happy with the colour choice. I'll give him a couple more days before I go ahead and buy paint. He may change his mind, and I aint painting the whole house again if that happens.
I took some pics of the house yesterday. When I get orgainised, I'll upload yesterdays pic side by side with the pic we took when we bought the house. Will give you a better idea of the whole before and after thing.
Okay, I'll be back later with some photos. Ooooh, and I have been scrapping. Stupidly I chose to cover an intricate chipboard flourish with patterned paper for my drought breaking layout, so it's been time consuming. However, as I sanded away at it, I reflected on the merits of a quick layout versus a time consuming one. I have concluded that it matters not (unless you have a deadline). The joy of scrapping, for me, is the relaxation and stress release it affords me.
Have a great day!

It's only Thursday, but I feel I've lived 2 weeks in the past 4 days...
On Monday I sacrificed sleep (worked Night Duty the night before) to spend a precious few hours with my dear, sweet friends from Uni. Jen and Kaz drove to Bendigo to lunch with Jocelyn and I. And all our kids of course. It was just lovely, and once again I lament the fact that we don't all live in the same street.
Got a couple of hours sleep in then went to my second Night Duty. I only lasted 2 hours. As soon as I arrived there was a message to call Steve at home. Turns out that Dad had just rang him. Mum was in hospital, and had sufferred a "bleed into her brain". I rang the hospital to hear what what happening. Basically, a few days ago Mum had a 3cm bleed into her brain (essentially a stroke). I spoke briefly with Mum, who was crying and feeling very frightened. I was just glad to hear her voice and know that at least she could still talk.
I didn't stay at work. Went home so that I could get a few hours sleep, then set off for Dad's first thing Tuesday morning. Dad was very relieved to see me. He had been holding it together well, but Mum is Dad's rock really, so I thought Dad would be in a worse state than he was. We drove the rest of the way to the hospital together. Mum looked good when we arrived. All her neurological exams checked out, so they discharged her. She needs an MRI of her brain in a couple of weeks, and depending on what that shows, she'll probably need a craniotomy (brain surgery) to clip an aneurysm. I put the fear of God into Mum, trying to ensure that if she has symptoms again, to call an ambulance, not hop in the car.
So, I loaded up the car and headed home Tuesday afternoon. I rang home to tell them I would be home in about an hour. Oscar must have left the phone off the hook after he spoke to me. This would be important in about an hour's time... Got halfway home and the freakin' car overheated. It's done this before, despite numerous mechanic visits, and despite Dad and I BOTH checking the oil and water before I left their place. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr. I had 2 litres of water in the car with me, but it wasn't enough. I sat on the side of the road for about an hour, waiting for the car to cool off. I tried to ring home to tell them what was happening, but the phone was off the hook. I sent a text to my neighbour to ask her to go tell Steve to hang up the phone, but it turns out she was out of town too. Then my phone died. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I limped 500m up the road before the needle shot to HOT again. So, I decided to be grown up about it, and walked a kilometer or so, to find a farmhouse a bit off the main road. No one answered when I knocked, so I helped myself to some water from an outdoor tap. As I was walking back to the car, and old man finally heard me and came out of the house to help. Turns out the extra water was all I needed, and I was on my way.
Phew. I cursed the car the whole way home. Had a little cry as well, once all the drama was over. LOL
Poor Steve. When I walked in the door, I unleashed my fury. Called the car all the names I could possibly think of, then went on a rant about how surely two adults with jobs should be able to have a reliable car, capable of surviving a ONE HOUR drive when my mother is sick. So, scrap that previous post about the Territory being stalled. It's full steam ahead baby. Not a question of having Steve 100% on board now. I mean, he always was, but he kept cringing about the $$$$ factor. I care not now. Mum and Dad aren't getting any younger, and there will be more times when I need to just drop everything and go to them. The last thing I need to think about is whether the car will let me down.
So, the past few days have been... interesting. Watch this space for the sparkling new car. hehehe Actually, I have decided that perhaps NEW is not necessary. A used Territory will do the job I reckon.

We've been struck down by the flu. First time in my life I've actually had the "flu". It has always irritated me when people describe the common cold as the "flu" and now it will annoy me even more. There's no confusing the two. You might feel lousy with the cold, but you feel like begging for a lethal injection when you have the flu! As it stands today, Jacob is the only one to have avoided it. Steve had it the worst, and I reckon mine was the mildest out of us all. Mothers are not allowed to get sick anyway... Oscar took out the prize for most miserable-looking. He insisted he wasn't overly sick, but his poor little face just looked miserable. Ossie and I were sick at the same time, so we spent a good deal of it cuddled up on the couch together. Awwwwwwww.
I have been mega busy making cards. I haven't photographed them yet, but aim to do it sometime today. I also sent off a heap of cards to Remember When to be photographed, so keep a look out for my stuff on their site.
I went a little crazy and ordered up big from Yankee Candle Company. I just love their candles, they have a mega long burn time, and the smell is divine. I get frustrated with candles that have next to no scent. These candles make me happy, and seem to inspire creativity for me.
The new car is stalled. Got the go ahead from everyone: Steve, the bank etc, but now I'm re-thinking it. The repayments are quite large, so I'm just having another look around to see if I can fall in love with a cheaper car, to the extent that I am in love with the Ford Territory! Probably aint gonna happen, but for one the voice of reason has prevailed.
Okay, off to clean my scrapping space, take some pics and then back to share with you later.
Have a great day!

I am just sampling the newest release from Omni. Omni Purple (Berry). Just the right degree of sweetness, plentiful bubbles and a very nice colour. I can see a new addiction is being born.
Omni is a sparkling wine for those non-Aussies amongst us.
Not much has been happening here. Fence is up to the rendering stage. The guinea pigs are still alive. Father's Day is tomorrow, and the kids are busting to give Steve the presents they made/bought at the Father's Day stall. It's so sweet to see them mega excited about "giving" as opposed to the receiving part.
Our weekends are our own again! Netball finished last week, so we're having a rest from weekend sport for a while. Lara's still putting in hours at Gym, but that's during the week after school.
Lara's ecxema has been out of control. She's covered in scabs and itchy sores. There have been many rumours going around school that she has chicken pox. LOL I'm blaming myself. At the end of summer I switched laundry detergents. The previous one was an environmentally friendly one that can be used in grey water. I didn't see the point in paying extra $$ for detergent that just goes down the plug hole in winter. I think this is the culprit. I have since switched back to our old detergent, sourced shampoo and conditioner that don't have soap or perfume (thanks Kazzy) and have been slathering her in sorbolene three times per day. Finally starting to see some improvement. It's minor in the scheme of things, but awful to see her beautiful skin looking so manky and sore.
I'm having a bit of a slump with regards to card making and scrapping. I need to get re-inspired. I ordered some things from www.twopeasinabucket.com today. I always feel inspired by new things!!

We now have three little guinea pig babies.
The kids think this is very very special. From Left to Right we have:
Coochie (Oscar's), Spec (Lara's) and SmashMouth (Jacob's).
They are all boys (or at least that's what we were told!) so we shouldn't have the problem of ongoing breeding.
They have a hideously expensive hutch, but when the kids are home, they spend most of their time on their laps. Steve doesn't really like them, he claims they are too "rodent-like" but I think they are pretty cute.

Check out the cool Time Zone clock at the bottom of this page! I love it, as it's a great visual aid to determine what time of day it is with you in comparison to me. hehe I was referred to the Poodwaddle website by Carol, www.poodwaddle.com to see their statistic counter thingy. It is pretty cool, but depressing at the same time. Sort of feels like the end is nigh as you watch the Earth's temperature rise before your eyes. Yikes.

I have news that I can finally share. I am now a "Barn-girl" at Remember When Paper Company! I am so thrilled. I have been a customer at RW for ages (we all need Bazzill, right?) and now I'm a part of their team. Thanks Kathy, for this remarkable opportunity.
I'm going to make the most of the quiet house right now (shhhhhhh, do you hear that? No, neither do I. It's peaceful here) and go get some card making, and well, even maybe some scrapping done!!
Have a good weekend!

I gave the new trampoline a go today. It is so much fun!! The kids thought it was the best thing in the world that I was jumping on there with them. We laughed and laughed until we could hardly stand up. Actually, Ossie couldn't stand up because a) he was giggling so hard, and b) we were jumping him around too much.
The pelvic floor muscles aren't what they used to be. The jumping combined with the hysterical laughing saw me having to empty my bladder a few times to avoid an inevitable accident. Must get onto those pelvic floor exercises. Those three kids in quick succession have taken their toll.
We have come up with a new game called "Brain Damage". OMG I'm giggling as I type this. It goes like this... The three kids lay down on their backs (stomachs don't work so well, as Jacob discovered) and they count to three then yell, "Brain Damage". I then jump as hard and fast as I can. The kids get tossed about - usually into each other - while I focus on my pelvic floor. LOL
It was honestly so much fun, and great exercise too. I was so puffed after just 20 minutes. Perhaps I'll get Steve to take a pic of "Brain Damage". I'm thinking it's something to have to see to understand how funny it is. (I've got the giggles again!)

Wow, time flies. I've been working heaps, and a few night duties thrown in there too, thus my absence. Not much has been happening around here. The school holidays are nearly over. Yay! Yes, I know I said I was looking forward to it, but the novelty of the sleep in has worn off, and I'd much rather have the kids back at school and out from under my feet. I swear, if I hear "Mum, there's nothing to do... " one more time...
As I await my massive tax return (should only be a couple of days away) I have been reflecting on purchases that have made (and continue to make) me so very happy. Here's my list, in no particular order:
1. Dyson vacuum.
2. My SLR camera.
3. My slow cooker
4. MM trimmer
6. Our massive chest freezer.
That's all I can think of at the moment. I'm sure if I had the Ford Territory, it'd be at the top of my list. hehe Yes, I'm still lusting after it.

It's super cold today. Of course Oscar refuses to admit this, and would happily parade around wearing his t-shirt if I let him.
