We have a house guest with us at the moment, he is a friend of Justin's and is staying until he finds a place to rent. He actually arrived last Saturday night but since I haven't blogged since before then you didn't know!! Laura has been at camp since Wednesday, I didn't get to say good bye and take care and love you before she left as I was at work and I went to bed while they were all still on the computer but the cute and lovely girl that she is texted me before she left in the morning to say she goodbye and that she loves me. Isn't that just gorgeous, my sweet 13 year old made me sad and happy at my break for breakfast that day. Happy that she sent me the text to say she loved me and sad that I wasn't there for her. don't get me wrong its not like she's never been away from me, (hell we went away for a month and left her with grandparents). I just thought is was lovely!!!
what else has been happening, not much work, only had to take Laura to dance once this week although I did drive out to where she has dance last night to pick up Okiwi, a student from the dance studio in town who was teaching as Laura's teacher was not there. He is at high school but a very talented dancer and so enthusactic and funny. So the drive back was not at all awkward as I know who he is and have spoken to him to say great work at Christmas in the park but don't really know him if you know what I mean. Although now when he is famous I will be able to say I gave him a ride once!
okay I have just talked to my best friend on Skype (great thing that) and she has told me I have to join face book. Which I have been avoiding since I really don't know anyone but now that I know two people as I know my cousin is one there too I guess i will go and check it out.

an update from the week that was.... well last Saturday I had Nic Howards class, which was good I didn't leave with two completed layouts though. One because I had to leave early ( and Nic had read that on my blog, how cool is that?) and two I didn't have my photos as I went to get them printed that morning but the machines were down. I have only just managed to get to the layouts this afternoon and finish off. I was going to upload but am waiting for some glitter glue to dry,and I haven't written on Alexanders on yet. I managed to get the photos done on Tuesday while Laura was at dance, Alexander and I went and got them done at Harvey Norman as they have a special on 5x7 for 25cents. It was the first time I have gone in and done it and it was really easy!!!
We had the Brown's over for homemade pizza on Saturday night without their children as they were getting ready for bed already, then Justin's brother and his family came over and stayed to watch the rugby. Justin parents were also here but his Mum went home early as she is not very well.
We had our first bbq of the season on Sunday night, since it was such a beautiful day (not that I saw much of it) it was really good too!
The rest of the week was fairly normal work, baking on Monday afternoon, dance Tuesday. I worked later on Wednesday since we had cardholders day at work on Thursday. Our theme was storybook characters. I still didn't know what I was going as when I left work on Wednesday but ended up going as Pipi Longstocking. I looked cute apparently, I felt funny more about not wearing a dress than anything as I felt naked without my pants on!!! I have asked on of the girls at work to flick me thru some photos so I may even share if you are lucky. And here we are at today already see the weeks just fly by don't they? What have you all been up to this past week?

I never did get back to update but doesn't mean I didn't think of you all. I often think up what to write on here but it just never gets here. Like lots of things I guess. Today I could have scrapped but did I? No!!! I did some cleaning, baked a banana cake got the pizza dough ready for tomorrow nights tea, had lunch, did some washing, then when the kids came home and it was a beautiful afternoon I did some gardening, played some soccer with the kids (next doors kids were here too) and then washed my car. I did look at some photos and cleared my desk to scrap but that is as close as I got! It was funny looking at some old photos of me when I was a kid, there a couple there that I look so cute but if I knew how I would fix in photoshop as the photo itself isn't the greatest. Speaking of I just changed two photos of the kids into black and white which I hope to print off and do a layout about each of them, the photos are from their birthdays. they are the just so lovely and black and white photos look really cool. I did see on Cathy's blog she uses some cool actions on all her photos but it was easy enough to do in photoshop, although I did still adjust the one of Laura a little bit. I suppose you all want to see them then, hold on lets see......... first up is Laura
and not to be left out here is Alexander

Laura's tooth fell out this week, it had been stuck there for a little bit right at the top of her mouth. the tooth fairy didn't come! I think it came today while she was at school as there was $2 where she had apparently put her tooth when she got home. funny aye. Well everyone is here so I better go and get ready for tomorrow's class with Nic Howard. I just checked my email and Laura's dance which is normally just down the road from where Scrapbook art, is now at Burwood which is not in the centre of town where I will be!! arghhh. Oh well these things happen. Night all.
