Mum's can't be sick

This is the reason why Mum's can't be sick.  Unfortunately i have been trying to get over this rotten cold and cough that i picked up from Sam last week.  So Adam came home yesterday at lunchtime so i could go to bed and get some sleep. ... But..... within half an hour both the boys were in bed with me eating tiny teddies and wanting my attention...lol..  Isn't it funny how mum's aren't allowed to be sick, they have to just soldier on..lol..
It's ok though, I did kick them out and had an hour and half sleep when they were gone..lol

Digi pages

Have done a little bit of Digi scrapping.  Haven't had a chance to update much of my blog lately.  We seem to have the dreaded colds back in our house again.  Poor Sam has copped a doozy this time around.
Hoe you have had a good week !!

Photo 365 August ~ Part 1

Sorry i haven't had a chance to get back on here for a couple of days, life is pretty busy at the moment.  Just trying to catch up on things since we got back from Broome.
Here are my photos for the first part of August..

( after seeing myself in this photo.. i have gone back to weight watchers and have lost 2.3kgs in 3 weeks..yay me!!...)

hence the walking ... because of weight watchers

and the healthy meals...lol

See this grey chair I am sitting on with Elise.  This is where we were stuck for 10 1/2 hrs at Port Headland airport.  We were diverted there from Broome on our way home to fix a fuel filter problem and it took them most of the night to try and fix it, but then they decided they wouldnt fly the plane and we had to sit for another 2 hrs while we waited for a new plane to be sent up from Perth.  So after leaving Broome at 1pm in the arvo we didn't get home until 3.30am.  It was a very looooooooooooooong day!

Hope you are having a good weekend. Ours has been pretty quiet.  Ive been for a few walks, and Adam has given my bike a once over so i can ride it again.  I haven't ridden it since Bassendean days when Adam and i would take the boys for a ride around the river.

Hope to also do some digi scrapping this arvo.  we'll see if the kids let me...lol

It was worth it!!

I mentioned in my last post that i went on a flying trip up to Broome to surprise my Dad for his 60th birthday.  It was the best surprise ever.  More exciting than i thought it would be.  He was so shocked to see me!  It was priceless...

 Mum and I had kept this surprise secret for over 6 months.  We nearly let it slip sooooooooooo many times.  But Dad said he truly didn't know anything about it.  He said he understood that i had the 3 little kids and there was no way that i could of made it.  Little did he know  i wasn't going to miss it for the world.  It's not every day that your Dad turns 60 now is it!!!
 He had such a great day at the Broome Cup races and had a few good wins on his punts!

 Here are some more from the surprise.. just because they make me smile!!
ha ah ha ha...

I will be back tomorrow to share some more photos of my trip up to Broome!!

I'm blaming Vicki

...ha ha ha...
That's what i'll tell adam if he tells me off for buying more digital stuff.  Vicki from Tomorrow'sMemories sent me an email this morning showing me the link to Basic Grey's digital online shop.  I bought a couple of templates and this kit called Sublime.  I just loved the grungy pink colours in it.
Here is the layout i did this morning!

I'm half way though another and will share it with you later!
Love ya Vicki..lol  xx

Photography Course

Monday night I began my 5 week photography course with Sharon manning.  It was a really great night.  We went through the basics of Exposure, Aperture and Shutter speed.   Can't say i have totally grasped them yet..lol.. but I'm working on it.

We even have homework to do before our next class in 2 weeks time.  So will hopefully share with you some of my photos.  That night it was so funny people were just taking random photos of everyone. Here are a few..

Looking forward to next time!!

Great night!

We had such a lovely time on Saturday night.  All of the family got together to celebrate Derek's 60th birthday and Claire and Eamon's engagement.  We had a curry night with lots of great food, drinks and cake !  (You can click on the photo layouts and you can probably see the photos larger)

Hope you all have a great week.  I am off to Sharon Manning's photography course " Get your camera off Auto" tonight.  I am so looking forward to it!
