ok heh ive been rereading the bridget jones books...so funny, got to love a book that makes u roar with laughter just from the imagines in your own mind. so i just couldnt help myself.
yep i turned 33 yesterday. it effected me more than turning 30 but its not my scary age just yet. thats still over 10 years away yet....:)
school is still going well for lilly. friday we all walked across the road to her first swimming carnival. where she came first in all her prep races. they were very cute kick board races and noodle races. she was very proud.then this morning an award on parade. i wasnt there but dan was. i was at home with miss emily who has a cold. not surprising really seeing as the stuipd weather is so up and down here atm. its cold (like start of winter cold) and then its heatwave summer hot. noone knows if they r coming or going.and then the first day of homeworking homereading. scary proof i have a school aged child. i would like to say she had an idea of what it was all about, but she had not seen the book and had no idea. thankgod for my reading recovery training. after a breif talk i could tell she had no idea so i was able to start in the right place and make it a positive first reading and homework situation. god help the rest of the kids in her class as im guessing none of them had any idea. (and yes being qld trained i find it werid that prep kids have home readers. i guess i will get used to it)
ive spent a fair part of the last few days scrapbooking. dont die of shock. i really dropped my ball on the whole scrapbooking thing in recent months and weeks. no enjoyment, didnt want to. but a friend asked me to do something and so when the right mood appeared i started with this layout for her to give to her brother when he is married next weekend. and the rest just sort of rolled from there.
a card to go with the above layout.
