Family Photo

This photo was taken on the day before Mother's Day.
I love this photo.

A Little Scrapbooking Happened

I thought I had lost my Mojo, with everything that has been happening since February, I havent had a chance to really scrap or doing anything crafty, until recently about 2 weeks after we moved, when I was on in the middle of unpacking my scrapbooking stuff, I found my mojo, I had started this little off the page album for a woman I work with and had packed it away and hadn't looked at it since, until this day, and its now completed and been received by the woman who loved it immensely.
Here is a little sneak preview of the album from the front cover and a double page in the middle, now that I have my mojo back I am looking forward to getting back into it...

Update on My Mum

Just a quick update on my Mum for those of you who know me:
Mum is doing really well, she is still unable to return home as yet, she has gone to a nursing home for about 6 to 9 mths to give her the time she needs to be able to go home and be the way she was and be able to do things unassisted like walking...
She is already enjoying her time at the place where she is, I haven't seen her smile like I did today for a long long time.
As you can see by these pics, Mum is looking fantastic.
Mum I love you more and more everyday, and can't wait to see you again at the end of the week
Your loving Daughter

Our New House

Its now been 6 weeks since we moved to our New House, yes we are still renting, but have moved a little further out of town and down the Lake a bit, but we love it, its a really nice quiet neighbourhood.
Yes we are in a two storey house, 3 bedrooms, bathroom with toilet, lounge and dining room combined and kitchen this is all upstairs, downstairs is the laundry, rumpus room and double garage. There is no internal access to the upstairs part except we have to walk up 16 stairs to get to our front door.
The yard is just right for the dogs, and they love it as well, the front yard is humungus, luckily we have a ride-on mower to mow it...

A Little Gift from Jodi

About 2 weeks before we moved to our new house, we had some visitors come visit us for one night, Jodi and her daughter Emelia had to come to Newcastle to do some stuff and see her brother Matt who was at JHH at the time, so we invited them to stay the night instead of driving here and back to Gunnedah in one day.
It was great to have them stay with us, Jodi made me a little Thank You gift for having them for the night... It was a lovely handmade card as well as a little canvas on a easel (see pic above).
A big THANK YOU to Jodi for making me this lovely handmade gift, I really appreciate it, and JODI you didnt have to. I hope that you both enjoyed my cooking of the meal.. Sorry I had to leave so early the next morning to get to work.
We all hope to see you soon..
