Lets just start this post with a MASSIVE thankyou to my friends Lydell and Miranda for organising such a wonderful weekend of kid free scrapping and crafting! Not to mention the sheer indulgent food that they prepared! In case you two are reading I just have to slip this line in!!!! Back Fat!!!! ROFLOL!!! Sorry, I couldnt help myself and that was part of the problem all weekend when there were caremalised tomatoes, dips a plenty, gourmet pizza, cheese fondue not to mention chocolate and white chocolate fondue and tiramasu on offer!!! I am salivating just typing that!! YUMMY!!! Not to mention plenty of crafting! We began to cover the lounge with all our creations! 3 of the girls sewed all weekend while 2 of us scrapped! I managed to get 3.5 projects completed of which none can be shown at this minute! But they are done! I am working like a posessed woman, hoping to get ahead with all my deadlines before bubby arrives and I am ahead at this stage, but finding that I am coming to a bit of a halt while I wait for an order to arrive to be able to get cracking on 4 more LO's! I almost felt like pulling out the sewing machine again for dress-making purposes, but firmly reminded myslef that my scrapping committments must be attended to first and as such there is literally no time for me to be dabbling in fabric and thread for a little while longer, but I was sorely tempted!!!!
I was naughty though, on the Saturday I found a convenient excuse to duck back home (I live 5 minutes from lydells!), just so I could see my little girl! She had been in childcare on the Friday and the thought of not seeing her again until Sunday night was too much to bear so I popped back home for 30 mins. Gosh I love that little girl. The older two boys were rude little snots though! I get greeted by "what are you doing here, you are not supposed to be back till Sunday" Yeah, thanks for that boys, I love you too! Now Ethan, jumped into my lap for a cuddle, so he is still in the good books! LOL! Mind you, when I came home Sunday night, the house was empty! It was weird, sort of an anti-climax but nice all in one. I knew that I had been creatively re-charged as I found it easy to throw a couple of loads in the wash, do the remaining dishes in the sink and pack away the copious supplies I took with me. Where as before I left the mere thought of housework in any capacity was like a bad nightmare. Lets see how long that lasts for!
Now.... I always like to share something I have created with each of my posts and I do not think I have shared this Prima LO as yet, but I do appologise if I have. It was created for CHA but it has never gone up on the Prima blog. I just love the cherry blossoms and flutter vines that Prima have released. A lot of the time I end up cutting them up and using them in pieces but on this occasion I used the whole vine in one. As well as adding a few extra flowers and pearls.
Changing the subject....I am becoming increasingly uncomfortable! As much as I remind myself that the hitch-hiker is easier in than out, the desire to be comfortable is beginning to win this mind game! It never ceases to amaze me how time seems to stand virtually still in those last couple of weeks! For instance, I got an email from the lady who won the RAK saying it had arrived safely today. Now in my befuddled state, I thought, boy that took its time getting there, until I looked at when I received her original email....Thursday and I didnt post the box until Friday and she had it by Monday! That was VERY, VERY, quick! How on earth could I have felt so strongly that it was a long time ago that I sent it! That shows just how stuffed up my perception of time is right now!! Yet, I have no idea when the baby alarm with go off for me, so I just have to endure the wait, no matter what the time frame is!
One last thing.... My little boy Ethan lost both of his front teeth on the weekend! Boo Hoo! I hate it when they loose their two front teeth. Apart from looking really funny with no front teeth and affecting his speech somewhat as air wooshes out of the gap, it is the undeniable evidence that he is growing up! That babyish innocence is being left behind and his face will begin to look a lot older from this point on! I know it is exciting for them, a big deal, a sign they are definately getting older, but sometimes a Mum just wants to hold onto her cute little boy a little bit longer!!
Anyhow.....thanks for stopping by!
