New Hair Again!!! Day 128

Im discovering advantages everyday from this 365 day challenge...

You know how it is, when you ceom home from the hair dressers and you think.... they did it wrong.....

So I looked for my last new hair photo which is 118 days ago by the way!! LOL And doing the comparison - it looks pretty much the same!!! I thought this time is was way lighter.... But comparining it to last time - its the same - so im happy now. Just takes a bit to get used to it i suppose!!!

This time
Last time!!

Now for my other exciting news.

I uploaded by DT competition layouts last night!! Its done now - no turning back!!! I feel sick about it!! Is my stuff good enough?? I get constant reject letters from the big 3!!! But gotta be in it I suppose!!

Wish me luck

Go to cyberscraps gallery to have a look at my layouts.. Go to cyberscraps forum for an explanation of the OTP album

Wish me luck!!

Here i am out enjoying it!!

This is what we woke up to:

And look at that beautiful rain..... the rain... not the green pond!! LOL Theres 100s of fish in there somewhere. Its started of at two pet gold fish!!

And now enjoy those lovely rain drops.....

There was also more pink ribbon day morning teas today.
Mum and i had such a pleasant morning sitting outside in the fresh air!! The host put on some lovely food and raised over $300 which is wonderful!!! Thanks for a wonderful morning!!!

Here are the balloons i took down to brighten the place up. Look at those insider balloons....... And the flowers with the white stamins..... Ignore the messy room behind them......

Day 126 - A girls day out

Emelia and I had a lovely girls day out today in Tamworth.
We had lunch at Bicentenial Park with the ducks.... so cute.

This fountain is lovely. I missed a great shot when the maintenance dude put some cleaner in the water which sent it blue and all the spurts were blue too. But only for a little while and i missed it!!

See the cute little duckies!!

And the enquisitive big duckies!!

And thats my lovely day......

Boy, did we eat well again last night!!!

How excited was i to get a phone call from one of my bestest buds Jack, to come over their place for lamb shanks for tea!!!

Between you and Me,these are the hubbys fav food!!! So of course we were there!!! Craig is totally the best cook. And so great to watch while he cooks and serves up!! That in itself is entertaining enough - but then we actually get to EAT it!!!

Last night was no dissappointment either. SO totally Yummy!!

Heres Craig serving up!

And this is what we were FORCED to eat!! Hard work, but someone has to do it? The problem was, there was no time to chew, as as soon as you got the food in your mouth, it all melted away and there was no need to chew it!!! Very dissapointing.... NOT!!!

Great for those like me that dont have any teeth!!

Even the mashed potaote was perfect!!!
Then after that endulgence, we were forced to ea Jacks triffle!!! It tasted like Christmas!! It was so lovely!!!
Jack & Craig are the best hosts. You know how some people just know how to entertain...... thats what they are. I cant do the whole entertaingin thing. I get so bogged down in the feeding of everyone - i forget to have fun. SO I dont do it very often. Im thinking though, to be fair, maybe i could do a chineese takeaway night.. That could be fun!!!

DD joined us through the night when she finished work and started playing with my camera. I like this photo!!

Then when i got home, with a few drinks under the belt - I decided to play dressups!!!

Also yesterday, I was out admiring our gorgeous garden!!!
Look that these fluffy trees!! Dont know there real name!! LOL

These are the fluffy trees flowers - see they are fluffy!!!

This is our Chinese Jasmine Vine, so lovely in scent!!!
This is today photo - day 123!!!
Im stopping to smell the flowers!! LOL
