Oct long weekend 09

Well we are near the end of a lovely long weekend, which as always passes waaaaay to quickly. Although i feel like a zombie! My hubby is away and i don't tend too sleep to well when he is not here ( if at all on some nights). Thank god he is back tomorrow!! I look forward to a good nights sleep. Apart from that all enjoyable
We have been to the movies twice this weekend, we saw Aliens in the Attic first which is absolutely fantastic!! Definatelt reccomend. I think 4 /5 stars. And then we went and saw G Force 3D, this one was very cute and definately aimed more at the kids. i'd give this one 3 /5 stars. We also had a visit to mum & dads which the kids LOVE!! and a little spend up at one of the local shops. Tomorrow hopefully will be no more rain so kids can get out and play a little, they are starting to bounce off each other. Otherwise a good dose of playmaze might be in order to get rid of some of that excess energy they have built up. Anyhoo that is the Long weekend as we experienced it..hope yours was great too!

Cheers Sam XX

My Day Off -yipeee

Today i hope to get some much needed scrapping done whilst kiddies are at school, but first that will mean getting off this computer !!! I find that i am always sitting here looking at scrapbooking and not doing it! I soooooo need a laptop in my scraproom .......and the begging continues with hubby LOL. I have a few L/o to get completed today for the CC at Savvy and Scrap boutique. We had a great weekend (even though i worked on Saturday). Sunday we had a soccer presentation with my DS getting a very cute soccer trophy, its a great day. The soccer club puts on rides and food and the kids just had a ball. Then it was off to mum and dads to celebrate dads birthday with pizza for dinner ..YUM!!! I think he will enjoy the Scotch i got him ..hehehehe. We still havn't decided what we are going to do with Hubby's car yet...for those who don't know last weekend he rolled his car and totaled it after landing on his roof ..hmmm he is very lucky he didn't hurt himself ! Might pop some pics up to show you all. Although i better ask first as he is still very upset by it. Anyhoo i best be off to scrap and will upload some more pages when done ...have a great one :)

New Family Project

We decided, .....well i decided that we would join our local organic farm and try and turn our brown thumbs into green ones ( fingers crossed). We have 2, 1.2m x 10m gardens that we can grow our own vegies in. The little community is so beautiful and very very helpful, the kids are enjoying it too which is fantastic as i really would love to have them learn all about gardening, but not just garden the whole cycle of regrowing from what you have sewn yourself. So far DD is more into it then DS but he is just enjoying the mud too much to think about anything else .... i wish i would have gotten those photos!!! Anyhoo i have included some before and after shots of the patch.
The before shot

The after shot

Ciao Sam
