Day 316... Too beautiful a day to be ironing!!!

Well, I am supposed to be behind the ironing board again now.... But look at this day today!!
After all the wind and miserable cold weather... why stay inside when i can be outside taking photos of myself...
More dares to come... been trying to work out the butchers one at the moment... very embarasing... Im seeing light though and think i can do it..... But be patient!!!
Anyway, seeing as i am supposed to be ironing, i decided to stay outside and do my photos...
Here is just a bit of the length i go to eveyday to bring you a photo of me!!!! And this one isnt a dare!!!
So photo 1: Nice day!!!

Photo 2: Might have a rest in the hamock seeing as i am supposed to be ironing!! Damn washing machine is damanding my attention - i am trying to ignore it!!!
Photo 3: Must be further from the washing machine.. am now on the grass out the back... Such a lovely day to be getting some sun... Very bright but!!!
Photo 4: Tooo bright, time to turn over and lay on the grass... Grass stains on the elbow of new shirt!!! Damn, this happens everytime with new clothes....

So now thats over and the washine machine is calling me.... Time to find some more old photos of the kids...
ONce again, looking a Brendas Blog... Her gorgeous dd in her new winter uniform - so i thought id share mine at a similar age. Emelia is in Kindy and Josh in Second class... They are so cute!! Josh loved his toys.... he is holding up (God i cant see it) But obviously it was the toy for the week that had to be in all photos!!!
ANd here they are again... CHeck out the hair!!! Kitty has to be in all photos too... Oh, they were so adorable!! WHat happened to my babies!!! :( so sad!!!
Boo hoo, thats my day. The washing machine is getting agro now! Time to go shut it up!!

Did anyone go to the dawn service this morning.... I was in bed!!! Not very patriotic am i. But looking at Tracey's blog.... Shes over there doing the real thing!!! What a great trip!!! Hope you have a safe trip back Tracey!!

Anyway, as i mentioned its rained all day today. I have one wedding this weekend, but its dry hire, so i dont have to set it all up. But i was out counting the chair covers and sashes out in my filthy workshop and decided what a better time that to clean it... so i spent two hours out there getting very dirty gettting very clean.. its all lovely now and items are on display, as it should be in a "Showroom" not a workshop!!! LOL

Day 310... I need some sleep!!

As i mentioned last night, Stu and Josh are away (coming home now actually), but i dont like going to bed alone, so tend to sit up all night scrapping and then go to bed and read. So it was about 3.00am this morning when i finally turned off the light... Im so tired.
And its been a big day. Got a last minute job for a balloon arch that i hadnt planned on doing which was a bit of a shock - but it done now!!

Anyway, here is another dare photo!!!
This dare is from my mum:
Take a photo of where you like to read.... In know its not the most hygenic place - but its quiet and no-one usually knows im there.... So i like to read in the toilet. I will go in there and just sit and read for an hour to turn of or get away!!
But of course, they all know now dont they and the first place they come looking for me is the bathroom
Its actaully our onsuite and quite pleasant...
SO day 310.....

This is balloon arch i did for Oz lotto!! 40 million dollar draw!! Wouldnt that be noice!!!!
ANd this is what i was doing all night...
Scrapping
Using up all my SIssy packs before i start on the next one.
This was a challenge for ScrapwithV... Use at least 10 pp on a layout.... I did that!!!
"Fun Party"

This was scrapping those photos that arnt too exciting.. But i am an event scrapper and stu won awards.. so i had to do it..

DAy 309..... Hmph???

It was kinda one of those days today..
Always is though when your in bed all snuggly and warm and its raining and you can hear it on the rooff..... who wants to get out of bed.
The boys are away again, sot here were no phones, no motorbikes reving up off to work, so it was perfect for a lay in and read.
Im reading this huge book at the moment... "Outlander" Apparently its really really good and i am thinking that - not able to put it down!!!

Meg sent me a dare tonight... so i thought i would use it as i didnt need to got to the butchers or go parking at all.....

The dare was to show my first layouts....

SO here is my photo for today, day 309....

This was an album i did to celebrate 10 years marraige in 1999. So its a little old - but not really my first as i did do an album with gift paper cutouts for my son in 1990.
But this is early enough....

Here is one of the 7 layouts i have done in the last two days. Im using up all the old sissy packs...

Just chucking stuff togther... not really going for anything publishable - just getting my photos scrapped!!
This one was my pistol day one... "ready Aim Fire"

Isnt it slipper weather now.....
So thats my boring day... ironing and scrapbooking. WIll show my other 3 layouts id did, but 4 layouts i cant show you as they are the class kits for scrapwithv!!

Seeya tomorrow!!

Day...Ok, can i scrap now!!!!

Ok, fresh air and sunshine is all well and good, but im sure its over rated!!! LOL. Nah, not really, Ive really enjoyed this weekend outside in the bush on the range...
Had a great round again today bringing in a score of 738, yesterday was 740..... not bad for consistancy!!! Its out of 800 for those that dont know.

This is my photo for the day, day 306.... Bit tired and having a bit of a kip on the back seat of the car... (notice the cap... "Its all Stuarts Fault") Thats my catchcry for archery!!! LOL

I got first in my division, which i was very pleased about!!!
And here is stu the cross eyed.... um person, who got second!!!
Here is a beautiful photo of Steve with his little girl.... Isnt it an adorable photo.... This hard archery man can be so gentle with his little girl.... Until she hits maybe 3 and then she will be just as feral and wonderful as his older two daughters!!! LOL!!!
Remember last weekend i was telling you about the pistol shooting... Well, i finally got the photos back.... Here i am in action...
I was also very exciting to get two shots in the middle ring..... (I dont know what they call it in shooting?)

And here we all are seeing what kind of assasins we will make... I think the world is pretty safe???
So thats my weekend... Gunna gladly pull out the scrapping stuff now and work on a lovely pink layout!!! Seeya

Day 305... Big Day today...



Huge day today....
Thank goodness Mum finished of the wedding today and i spent the day shooting arrows. The first time since last year and i had a great time!!!!
Sundays have been taken up with trying to keep ontop of DT stuff, but SWV isnt as demanding as its spread across so many DTs, so theres not as much pressure to be on the forum and getting layouts completed.
Hence, today was the first time back on the range since December.....
I shot a PB on the second round which was awesome!!!

Anyway, my dare for today comes from Mum... Climb a tree!! Tadah!!! I did...
Im not that high, but i climbed it just the same....
Photo for the day, day 305...

View looking down...
View Across the fence...
More wedding photos... But i also had two 21st tonight as well, that i did when i got home...
Here are some recent layouts...
"Snow Queen" Experimenting with home made transparencies.....


"Party at Forty", another double just using up stuff....
