Day 253.... A Day in Tamworth

Emelia and I had a teacher free day at Tamworth today.......

I had to get stuff for my party that i couldnt get locally and also some stuff for weddings that i cant get here..... So it was a huge day!!!!

DD is a gorgeous girl and it was totally sickening all the "old men" eyeing her off today!! I wanted to smack them in the face and say this is my 14 year old daughter you sicko!!!! Makes me scared for young girls.... They are so grown up, yet so nieve and these sickos take advantage of that.....
I said look at those old men eyeing you off... and they were doing it extremely obviosuly and she said, that yeh shes used to it now and just ignores them....
Its always bothered me that kind of thing. Im so pleased it doesnt bother her...

There was a sitaution when I was living in Moree, id lost all my baby weight and was looking quite ok again and this ar&^hole from the workplace across from my house was stalking me...... He would sit out the front of my house and watch me.. At first i thought i was being paranoid as he did work across the street - so i ignored him.... But then he started getting more obvious. Tyring to make conversation, talking to my kids, blowing me kisses, waving at me all the time. Made me sick. I told my husband in the end as it became obvious that he was stalking me and he went over to his workplace and approached his boss about it and then DH approched the guy and told him off!!! My hero!!!

But the bottom line is, that it upset me so much I gained like 20 kilos so fast so i wouldnt be attractive to men anymore.... and ive done that my whole life. It has happened this time as well. I lost a heap of weight and then started getting advances... so uncoscious gained some again... I dont want to but. I feel much better when i am a semi-normal weight. Does anyone else have this problem? If so let me know as id like to know how to get past it... Its an emotional thing and i dont want it controlling my weight... I really should look into that side of things on a phyciatric level..... Hmmm....

Very deap today...

Ok then, I'll gp now.... seeya tomorrow...

Day 250.... Ahhhhh Relaxing Sunday....

Today is close to my idea of heaven.... except of course for the door bell ringing that happened at 9.30 and got me out of bed!!!!

Hubby is away at an archery shoot in Tamworth and the kids are doing there own thing... and actually being nice to each other which is a pleasant change.

Josh was pulling the ferings and things of his bike for something to do and emelia gave him a hand...... as she was being so generous in helping, Joshua decided to let her use his skateboard which has sat under his bed for like 5 years now unused!!!!

Selfish little git he is...

Anyway here are some photos....

Darling dd showing her non skateboarding proess... Notice the bike machanic in the background..

Sibling generosity as its best..... ahhhhh a bit of co-operation.... a very rare thing amoungst the teenagers of this house!!

NATIONAL BACKUP YOUR PHOTOS DAY!!!!!!

I appologise up front now for my long winded post today.... But i think all the scrapbooking public need a reminder!!

We at CyberScraps decided that would we have a NATIONAL BACKUP YOUR PHOTOS DAY!!!

All this came about when on Thursday night my computer refused to continue its work and i had to shut it down - when trying to start it up again, there was a shudder, a wheer and a bump and it refused to open.... Damn...

After several attempts, we decided it was time to take it to the Doctor at which point my husband asked me....."Are all your back ups up t date" he had actually bought an external hard drive for all the backups when we had the same problem in July last year!!!

They werent!!

Id backed up til December 2007 my photos but nothing of my data since July last year!!!

We took the computer to the doctor and he announced that after checking, the hard drive was broked and he would endevour to try and save the files i needed, but wasnt promising everything...

I came home and cried like a broken hearted person all day!!! I mean cried and snotted on my bed all day!! What is it going to take for me to save my photos!!!

Thankgoodness, after a very long 36 hours, i learnt that my photos and files were saved!!! My darling husband bought me a new computer as well as my own external hard drive where i will keep all backups....

SO after such a close call, we really need to BACKUP OUR PHOTOS!!!! Do it NOW!!!

The following are a few things ive been upto this last couple of days.


Did this wonderful giantshape delivery yesterday to a ladies workplace... After making the grand entrance and announcing that Kim was 40 today I asked everyone to join in a chorus of Happy Birthday!! Kim was so embarrased and due to the laughing i didnt get past Happy Birthday to you!!! Too funny!!


Here was another giantshape bunch for a guy that had been promoted in his workplace!! A huge congrats to him and dont drink all the champers at once!!!!


This is a bunch i did for a wedding today, Its a just married double bubble bunch complete with balloon, spikes and dove base...very cute...

CyberScraps are having their monthly cibercrop this weekend.... Here are a couple of layouts so far...

Jodi's Challenge - Your/A greatest love and journalling of at least 50 words:

Mine is "Close Call" My photos are a great love and this is what i have scrapped.

Lu's challenge is Humour,

Whats more Humourous than Jodi playing softball!!!!

Mine is "Run legs run"

Now todays photo day 249....... here it is.... same as usual, one day I will come up with something different and surprise you all!!! Although I did attempt one with the balloons, butt he colo0urs in the balloons made my face look all horrible!! Not going to make that public knowledge!! LOL

So i was very surprised when i sat down to scrap last night that i came up with this layout!!!

And here is my photo for the day day 248......

Day 247.....What a Day!!!!

Well, I think its fair enough to say that it has been an absolute f$#&n prick of a day for me today!!!!

As I was blogging last night my computer had a bit of a melt down.... i turned it off and i couldnt start it again...... and then the banging started!!! oh no!!!!

Took it into the doctors today and he anounced that the hard drive has crapped itself...... there goes all my stuff!!!!

I mourned my lost photos all day!!! I cried, and cried and bawled and snotted and wanted to vomit!! honestly my life is my photos......

It made me extremely depressed all day.. I didnt do a thing, not even the washing up!!!!

Upon a check up this afternoon - after crying all day, the computer guy said he was in the process of doing a backup!!! WHAT!!!! you can save my stuff!!!! I have been bawling all day!!!!!

So hopefully it wasnt computer lingo for something other than NOT being able to save all my photos - but we will see tomorrow..... Fingers crossed!!!!

This is my photo for the day.... Day 247...

Notice the fake smile...... Id been bawling all morning!!!!

Anyway, I had to play softball tonight. I turned up, arm all wrapped and bat left handed.... Should have done that all along...... But got out each time anyway!! Damn!!!

DH has set up his spare laptop for me, so im not computer less... just fileless....

Seeya tomorrow... Going to my happy place now to scrap.

Ive been trying to get some scrapping done all day today, but first i had to do a wedding quote and organise some supplies for a wedding next weekend....

Well, I organised the stuff for next weeekends wedding, but didnt gte the quote done. I gave up and will do it tomorrow...



Ive been in a bit of pain with my arm today and so have had to take some pain killers and they just make me too brain dead!!! Cant do accurate quotes like that!!!

In Memory of Min........


Min "Minnie" was a little dog that has seen so much......
Shes been a very dear companion to so many people throughout her life, making very special friends where ever she went.
She was 14 years old with a few health complaints, but generally a very happy little dog.
She was Mums little dog.
Sadly though, Min passed away this morning after a bit of rough and tumble with one of their other dogs.
Of course this is devistating to the whole family and the many friends Min made, but especially to two very special people, Mum and my little brother Gary.
So lets have a minutes silence for this special little dog......











I also went to the doctor today to find out about the damage i have done to my arm during softball last week!!
I wrecked it!!
I tore the muscle.... hence the bruising all down my arm. Where the muscle had torn away from where ever, it bled out and has gone right down to my wrist and up past my elbow!!
So im out of action for 4 weeks..... So, as i am a week away from my busiest two months with weddings, than thats real handy!!!!


And this is my photo for the day. day 245.......
Hoping to get some scrapping done tonight....

Oh, I finished reading the BEST book!!! The Call of the High Country by tony Parsons!! Excellent book!!! Highly recommeded
Seeya tomorrow

Happy 42nd Birthday Stu!!!

Its my darling hubbys birthday today!!!!

So we had a special tea tonight. Im not much of a cook, but what i do cook i cook well!!!
Stus favorite food is lamb shanks in a plum sausy thing that i do... Here it is!! Its like sooooo yummy!!!
No Jenny Food for me tonight!!!!


Look how happy he looks!!!

And so excited!!!

Stu is like soooo hard to buy for!!! no, i mean really hard.
You know when people open a present and they dont like it, but they pretend they do so you feel ok??? Well, Stu doesnt have a problem telling you how much he hates your present and he hates everything i have ever bought him!!!
At christmas I even bought some Draggin Jeans with kevlar made for riding motorbikes..... $200 worth... even they were wrong!!!! He wanted a shorter pair for stout people..... (Which they dont make by the way!!!)
So I told him that i am never buying him another present that he hasnt chosen himslef. NO more suprises from me!!!
So i went looking for something and would ring him, wouyld you use this power tool - no!! WOuld you use this power tool - no!!!
So guess what he got.
* A poly fuel container thing for the lawn mower
* Motorbike washing stuff (Which by the way was still half wrong.... even though thats what he asked for)
* Two t shirts... "Rusty" ones... not cheap!!! The first one had pink on it and he wont wear pink... (It was a pink skull by the way) The other was a black one that he thought felt too hot for a summer shirt!!!!
SO what does one do????
Even though he keeps saying no more chocolate or marshmellows - he complains when there is none... so he got them anyway!!! They are being eaten as i type!!!

Of course theres always use for the present decorations!!!

This is my photo for the day.... Day 244......

OK, I admit, im loving so I think you can dance!!!!
Those guys are amaising!! There moves are awesome and the b boys!! WOW!!! Who knew they could be so sexy!!

So im very sad tonight that they are sending Khaly home. I must admit that i didnt vote for him, i voted for another two couples....... I'l be more careful next week!!!
Good luck with your dacing future Khaly. Im not at all Courtney went home... SHe was a great dancer but hasnt shown as much improvement as some of the others...

Seeya tomorrow!!

Day 243 - A day of clowning around....

Last nights "Love is" tag class at CyberScraps went well.. We had a couple of participants, but there was still room for more....

Keep an eye out for March's class... We will be doing a layout using cardstock, no patterned paper.....

I did the clown routine for a friends 1 year old son today.... Went in and did balloon twisting - the kids were sweet which is a bonus!! Most kids are real horrors which is why ive given up doing the clown - its just not fun!!! Some kids are horrible little creatures who's parents seam to think that because they pay money to have a clown do an appearance at a party, kids can feel free to do the whole crusty the clwon form the simpsons routine and they sit back and laugh!! Quite frankly, hitting and kicking kids and kids being allowed to scream abuse at a person being paid to entertain them is not acceptable no matter how much they are charged!! Its down right rude!!

But these ones today were little angels thankfully.

Theres a bit of a yarn to this one and scrapbookers will apreciate it... I did a clown routine about 4 years ago my my firends older child for their 1st birthday and the scrapbooks just wont be the same without a clown photo in the younger siblings scrapbook!!!

Happy 1st birthday Thomas... although it was really on Feb 14th....

So this is todays photo!!!! (Dont laugh too hard, you'll give yourself a tummy ache!!!)

This is the fun i had over the rest of the weekend. all up i did i think 6 doubles and a single. Hate the single, it was a sketch challenge... and i dont have the interest in fancying it up at all.. SO it wont go on the blog as i dont like it!!

this was was a pack i purchased and changed a bit to suit me...

"A girls gotta have Pink" I like this one... I wonder why????



This one is called "Rite of Passage" and it was also a pack i bought.. but quite altered as i used different colours.... Looks great but!! Very boyee"

Well, i think my three week softball career is over. I ahve done a bit of damage to my forearm on the right.....

I woke up yesterday to some very deep bruising on the forearm and elbow. I have strained the ligament in this arm each game and then the last game its tore..... I can move it ok, but cant straighten my arm. If i put this kind of pressure on it again before it heals i will ruin my arm!!! So i guess i have to make an early retirement. I havnt told the team yet??

Good thing mum got her photos last week!!!

I'll share some in the memory of my lost career!!!
Here i am slogging the ball!!! Just before the ligament tore!!!


Here i am running home with Ben right on my tail who actually hit the home run!! I had a one base headstart and he still caught me!!!


That look it due to the total pain in my legs not my arrm!!! LOL


Well see whats instore tomorrow

Seeya then

Day 240....HAPPY VALENTINES DAY

Happy Valentines Day to all....

Did cupid visit you????

He forgot about me in a gift sense, but my darling hubby doned the Balloon Shirt complete with pink and green balloons to do my deliveries, so i cant be too hard on him.. Its all i ask for to show his love to me every year and i am very pleased with that arrangement.

I was in my workshop blowing up balloons from 6.00am to 6.30pm tonight and then headed straight down to play a great game of softball!! My legs were like jelly!! Hardly eaten a thing all day - and today was the day i pick to slog the softball and have to sprint the bases!!!!

No amount of "run legs run" would get them going any faster!! I had so much lactic acid built up i was so verging on letting all the contents of my empty tummy on the lose!!! And i am sooo sore now!!!!

Anyway, here is my official photo for the day.... Day 240....

Notice, i dont need a balloon shirt as i am the balloon "lady" and they all know me!! BEsides, i didnt leave the damn shed!!!

Mum and Stu did all the running around!!!
Here is a photo that mum took!! this balloon was so gorgeous... It sings and lights up!! Truely awesome!! It sings "Endless Love"

Here are a couple of the charactors that came out of my shop today.....
"I love every inch of you..."

"Your my main Squeeze" Too cute!!!

The hot air balloons are always popular. this balloon cant fit into the door of a car!!! Its like 1 mtr round and stands proabably 2mtrs high


This one went out to the Shire Depot today!!! A real hoot!!!

SO that was my eventfull, very tiring day....
Im off to sleep for tomorrow now.... seeya Saturday!! Yeah right...
Dont forget the CyberScraps on-line class on Saturday.. Gorgepus little "Love Is" album....
Seeya
