Chrissy's challenge.......

Chrissy has challenged us to place our favourite LO's we have created from the daily challenges over at TSH. i have enjoyed doing these challenges enormously and I cant choose just one so here are a couple of them.

July challenge use a song title as your title. i chose "Tell me baby" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers!! This is one of my all time favourite photos of Kloe and i just love it extra-large!!! (even though I dislike that rat-tail stuff SO much!!!)

This was the red, white and light blue challenge. Just love this crillon paper courtesy of my tarisota pack!! How gorgeous is it??? kloe and her friends having fun on barrow's beach.And last but certainly not least is the LO using some artwork. I feel this is technically not my LO as such as other than print out the title on a transparecy the rest is Miss Kloe's beautiful drawing of one of her favourite TV shows, Maggie and the Ferocious Beast in Nowhere Land!! i just love it sweetie!! you just love to draw so much and i hope you find as much pleasure in it as you grow up as you do now. please never loose you creative streak!!!

yea..ok i'm back

Yea yea I know its days later but i'm back...in spirit anycase. this is just a quickie entry to put on here the pages that i did with the wonderful Steph in adelaide. i was a tad bit disappointed the 2nd class was cancelled but I still had a gret day.!!

i cant get over how cheeky her smile is getting!! i know i'm biased, but she does have such a gorgeous smile and infectious laugh. Our cheeky little spoggie!!!!

Smacks wrist....bad blogger

O my....I just seen the date on my last entry. Where has June gone??? Have I really not undated in all this time??? I blame the girls at TSH for all the wonderful daily challenges they have been dishing out. By the time I get home from work i have roughly 1.5 hours to do the daily challenge before i have to pick Kloe up from school. Sometimes i can get it done and other times i'm left procrastinating about it.
So what else has been happening in my life for the month of June. Well quite honestly, not much...SSDD is the order of the days.
For the queens birthday we went for a BBQ with some old friends at Barrows Beach. it kind of felt weird aas we have really had nothing to do with them for probably well over a year and we have all moved on in different directions and there was not much conversation flowing iykwim. I spent most of the afternoon playing and go ing for walks on the beach. And of course taking photos!!! Kloe had a great time and Scotts words were. " Well that was interesting!! Wont be in a big rush to do that again!!" it was ok. i had a great time going for the walks up the beach. Walking in the ankle deep soft sand was hard work and was a good work out!!
We got home with about 10 mins to spare to watch the news, scotts favourite pasttime. dad rang just as we got in the door wanting to know if I had heard from my brother. i said i had just got in and he said well you had better ring him before you watch the news. i was busy and kind of forgot until scott said, "come and watch this, there was a accident in Pirie today and someone was killed" I started to watch and as soon as I saw the car i thought, "O NO!!", my heart leapt into my throat and my stomach started to instantly churn, i wasnt even listening to the story. i was looking frantically for my mobile. 7 missed calls from my brother. i rang him straight away. He knew instantly that i had seen the news. He reassured me straight away that our friend Stuart was fine and it was the guy on the motorbike that had been killed. still not great but, such a tradgedy for the boys family, but i did feel better that it wasnt our friend. is that awful???. we have since found out that the guy on the motorbik was drunk and was doing an estimated speed of between 150 and 180 kms per hour. on a town street at 1.30 in the afternoon. stuart and Amanda were coming back from doing some shopping. they were less than 500m's from home. Stuart is a mess and has gone to stay with Amandas parents in Kadina for awhile. i spoke with warren on Thursday and he said that Stuart wasnt coping at all. i dont blame him.

O my I just noticed the time. i'm off to the slave and grind.....will try and finish off my June in review entry when i get home.

A day of ups and downs....

Yesterday...What a day!!! was one of those rollercoaster days when quite frankly you would just rather step off for awhile and let someone else enjoy(?) the ride.
It started out fine, although I'm still so not use to getting kloe ready for school. Its just something i dont normally do. Under normal circumstances I drag her out of bed about 5 mins before i need to leave, throw all her stuff in the car and take her up mums, but with mum being indisposed again (read in her second home, otherwise known as the port pirie hospital), I have to get her ready before dropping her off to dad, who then has to fight with her to eat something. Is it possible for a 6 year old to have an eating disorder?? i mean she is in no way skinny but she never eats anything. i dont know how she survives on the tinsy bit she does eat. But my god i dont know how my mum gets her dressed and her hair done before its time for her to go to school. My mum needs a medal i think!! Shes a nightmare!!! As if i need more stress in my life!!
Anyway with that out of the way, work was pretty normal!! i arrived home and went straight on the computer to try and get ROBBIE WILLIAMS tickets. After two hours of continuously pressing the retry button, I eventually got on!! YEA!!! So Scott and i are now the proud owners of two red hot ga Gold tickets to see that gorgeous hunk of a man!!! WOOHOO!!! Sorry julie if you are ready this!! But YAHOO!!!!!!!!! That definately saw the day take an upturn.
Then i had a funeral to go to which is horrid at the best of times. i never really knew the man but he was the father of my ex-sister-in-law. i still see her on a regular basis, so it just seemed the right thing to do.
i then got home to possibly the worst news. i got an email from Kyrs at SM to say that my LO that had been accepted to be published in their magazine had not arrived at its destination. O NO!!! i scrambled to find my postal receipt to find out what day I had posted it. MAy 7th. Not Good!! even if aussie post was using the camel train to sydney it hould have arrived by now. My LO is lost in the bowels of aussie postland. O NO!! Could there be a worse hell??? How can they loose a pizza box??? Isnt it big enough??? I could understand a letter or even a really tiny parcel...but a pizza box??? I cant even go down and speak to our local post office until monday. LAst night was an evening of devastation!!! I couldnt sleep, I was so miffed and upset.

But saturday came to my rescue and I was off to Adelaide. No not to visit my friends at REPROMED. they were not in for a visit!! Thank god!! It was to do some fabulous classes at Scrapbbok Station under the guidance of the ever so wonderful Steph!! (and i promise Steph I wont post the pics, although I did pass the waving one onto Chrissy and Tracey!) these are the awesome pages she taught us today. thanks for making my saturday so much better than my friday!!!
