Not only am I a slack blogger...

...I am a slack blog hopper!

The witch has cast her wonderous spell... I've been tagged!

but I think she has tagged nearly everyone I would tag anyway... and if she didn't then Melis did!!!!

You know I think anyone who actually puts themselves "out there" is indeed EXCELLENT... so if you are reading this... I think YOU are excellent and should consider yourself hereby and for ever more, totally and unreservedly TAGGED!

What's your day been like today?

I have had fun over at Scrap World... if you'd still like to join in you have until midnight Friday 21st March (as in Good Friday) to get your entries in the Gallery. Hope you will pop in.

Here is an example for my sketch challenge


and here is the mess after I was done! LOL


Just been catching up on some blog hopping tonight and OMG some of you girls have totally amazed and astonished me... the creative cup is running over... thank you all so much for sharing your amazing talents... hope your feelin' the love girlies... you've given me much to aspire to.

Well I am off to bed... good night, sleep tight and mind those pesky bed bugs don't bite.

WHERE OH WHERE DID THE LAST 7 WEEKS GO????

OMFG... how fast is this year slipping by? I feel like my head is spinning!

In my defence I have had some major internet / computer problems so you have to forgive the lapse in blogging.

Well, super fast update because the world is turning as I write and I just can't keep up... SOMEBODY STOP THE RIDE... I wanna get off... just for a second!

  • BIL is doing well... he is back for more tests this month... but so far so good.
  • School went back without tears... and only a little "woo hoo" from me!

  • DS turned 16! OMFG (again)! Where the hell did the last 16 years go??? Surely I am not old enough to be the mother of a 16 year old? Ummmm... oh yeah, THAT'S why I have grey hairs!
  • Littlest DD turned 3... all my babies are growing up.

  • The girls have started Calisthenics... Callie is loving it (so far at least) and Dylan is the littlest in her class which makes her look super cute and she is loving it too.

  • Miss C has also started piano lessons which she is enjoying... might get a musical one in the family yet! ;)

  • Been going to the gym... not lost heaps of weight but I am feeling fitter and stronger which was my main aim and I am starting to fit back into my clothes more comfortably so that is keeping me motivated.
  • Went on another IKEA binge and decked out the media room with cabinets and that looks pretty cool... BUT best thing (or possibly worse thing) EVER... my lounge finally arrived... yep, it's the full on, totally crass, completely tacky, 4 seater rocker recliner... complete with cup holders!!! PMSL... I NEVER thought I would want one of these things, but I tell ya, kick back in this bad boy and you could watch 4 movies a day!!! LOL
ummmm... can't think of anything else... which seems totally ridiculous because I feel like I have been flat out running about and busy as... but as usual seem to be achieving nothing!

OH... HANG ON A MINUTE... we are CCing over at Scrap World THIS WEEKEND...

Just follow the link to the forum to join up and then come play with us this weekend...Mel REALLY does have the best prizes and giveaways I promise... and the shop is rocking with a 20% off sale until Friday night too!!!

I have a couple of sketches for you, there is a colour challenge from Alice, Melis is going to inspire you with an OTP, I think Kelley has an Easter themed challenge for you... and ummm and lots of fun and games and giveaways for all.

I am going to be up chatting the night away so hope you will "hop" in (ok sorry, bad joke! LOL) and say hello and have a go at winning some great prizes. See you there.
