I've been slack. No other way to put it. Have been sorting out some things at work and getting that nice balance back (why is it that health professionals are the worst offenders when it comes to looking after themselves - we should practice what we preach more in my humble opinion). It's actually been nice to slow down a bit. Today I played on the floor with Samuel (who is now walking and climbing and generally being a bandit). he giggles so much when I play with him. It's beautiful. Life is good. Oh and I have been scrapping!
Last Friday night I was invited along with the girls to the Eureka Tower by the lovely Pam, to scrap in a room with a view (and WHAT a view that was) and be wined and dined by Alex (Pam's lovely new man), Talk about spoilt - I think I counted seven courses and it was yummy. Soovee, Rach, Wendy and Jenny picked me up in the orange Kombi, complete with feather boas and crowns. It was hilarious. I promised Sue I wouldn't write about the RACV man so I won't - oh woops - did I say RACV man? Thanks girls (and Alex) for a fun night. Here's a pic of the great view from the apartment:
Then on Sunday I scrapped with the sensational Sunday girls at Scraptacular and caught up on all the yummy things in the shop - and caught up with Kim who is also on the design team (OMG you should see her work on display in the shop - it's gorgeous). So all up a few days scrapping and a few new layouts. This one's my girlfriend Chris and her gorgeous daughter Hannah (sister to the lovely Sharni from the barbie jeans layout). I took this picture while I was in Perth and it's one of my favourites. Love these K-ology peabody papers from Scraptacular, and all the cute embellishments that go with them. Have you seen those stickers and rub-ons to go - OMG they are to die for.
This one is all about how my hubbie Paul took 3 months paternity leave to spend time with the boys recently and to give me a break. Wanted the boys know how he chooses to do things like that (OK, so I nagged him until he did, but you get the idea, LOL). These are Fancy Pants 'Dapper' papers, which have the groovy matching daisy's.
This last one is from bits and pieces of scrap paper I had left over. This photo was taken by me, but was inspired by a picture taken by Maxine Hazebroek. It's my friends daughter Hannah again. I have emailed her and told her to buy herself an album as I am sending these layouts over. It was just screaming out for pink and black. Great having friends and sisters with girls so I occasionally get to use pink!
Few busy days ahead - I'm co-presenting an education program on lifestyle changes for women doing IVF. It's something I am passionate about, and really enjoy. Session 2 is tomorrow night. Got lots of planning and reading and client catch up stuff to do as well, plus a report that's due in by midnight! Better get cracking on that one!
Did I say life is good? It is. There's so much more to life than working your butt off. If it wasn't nearly time to prune them, I'd tell you to stop and smell the roses. Yep life's good. Night lovelies.
