Quick Update on all things Festive!

Wow, what a night!!! Had a fabulous dinner with the girlies Angela, Cara and Kelly (unfortunately V couldn’t come) and my sis Nena turned up just in time to go to The Zoo.

Saw some great local talent (on stage, that is!!) and it was sooo unreal to be in a venue without being choked by cigarette smoke!! I’m sure it used to make the hangover worse!! Thank God for Tyrone Noonan!! What a voice and what a sweetie. By that time, only Ang and I were left standing (pikers!!) and when he sang “Bastard Son” from the George CD, just about the whole place piled onto the dancefloor!! JUST AMAZING!!

No hangover to report. Just very weary….

Look who’s been continually “trimming” the tree…..

and who helped me make the ice-cream cake today!!

All is still calm and all is still bright. Can hopefully drag Mackinley to Mass tomorrow morning, but you know kids “it’s booooorrrring Mum!!” God love ‘em……

Have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone. Stay safe and enjoy time with your family –or at least try to stay calm.


p.s. Leish’s tagged me, so stay tuned for that one!!

Yay!! Up and Running…

Well, here we are and what a week it’s been. While I’ve been setting up this blog, Rainer’s decided to help himself to the pantry…

I’ve posted the Christmas Cards and presents and made the tags for them..

and finished the layout from Alicia’s free online class

as well as another for Scrapbook City (unfortunately the gallery is still not letting me upload, so I’ll post here in the meantime)

I’ve got some more great paper from We R Memory Keepers and borders from Technique Tuesday that I’m itching to get to but I’ve also been organising my BIRTHDAY PARTY!! Yep, it’s THAT time of year again, and another year older (and wiser??). I’ve decided to jump the gun and celebrate early this year instead of forcing everyone to be up for it on the actual date (Wednesday, by the way – LOL).

I’ve selectively hand-picked against tough criteria (okay, the only one’s with $$ and time), these 4 girls who are going to “escort” me through dinner in the Valley and a CD launch at The Zoo. Hopefully, we can last past 10pm so I have them all on the Berocca Party Fitness Regime to last them through the night.

I’m looking forward to an awesome night and an exceptional hangover!! Thanks for visiting!!!
