Well, as you all know,

So in typical country style
we had hamburgers down by the river!!It was such a nice day today, i really didnt want to be stuck inside,
im inside all the time
It was lovely!!!!
Stu woke me this morning with a pressie
I wasnt expecting anything!
He have me a lovely two tone pandora handbag bead
and also a pandora coloured charm. Pink base with hot pink flowers!!
Just gorgeous!!
He is so sweet!!
And tonight i cooked an all time favorite, Corned Silverside!!
So there was no wineing and dining, but it was a hugely enjoyable day!!!

Sweet 16

Emelia was 16 yesterday!!!
After unwrapping her presents, the next job was getting her "L's"
So after a couple of practises on the RTA site,
it was off to do the real thing!!!
And on the road!!!
Here she is ready to drive to school and shes been driving ever since... everywhere!!!
Been through traffic lights, over an overhead bridge, round roundabaouts
and through MacDonalds drive through!! 2 perfect angle parks and a parallel park!!
All in 2 days!!
Then there was the cake!
Emelia said she always wanted to stuff her face with cake...
so she did!!
It was just me, Josh and Emelia for her little cake party!!
Stu worked late last night, but she had a sleep over on the weekend.
She wasnt interested in going out to tea. She did want a party, but there is no way in the world i am hosting a party for 16 year olds!!!
What on earth do they do that isnt mischief!!
I thought that one best left alone....

looked what turned up in the mail today
all the way from America!!!
The new book!! Book #7!!!
Ive been dying to see what happens next for Jamie and Clare!!!

Sensational Sunday

Today was HUGE!!!!
Jack & I decided last year that we were going to enter into this years
Gunnedah Gallop!!!
It kinda snuck up on us!!!
It was TODAY!!!
While Jack has been running on the treadmill at the gym in training,
ive still just been on the cross trainer!!
Jack ran the entire 3km!! Yay!!
I on the other hand jogged and walked it!!!
I discovered today before next year, i will get off the cross trainer and actually run properly!!
OMG, i thought i was going to die!!!
I finished nearly 2 minutes behind Jack!!
But i finished!! And that in itself is pretty damn big for me!!!
I mean, have you seen Me!!!
Anyway, here is the evidence of my first fun run!!
Then it was off to the drags again!!
The boys have had a wonderful full day of racing!!!!
Stu was eliminated on the first round.

Here he is!! Finally got a racing photo!!
Not a good one, but one just the same!!!

Josh made it to the finals!! Yay!
Him and Nick from Armidale... He is a young bloke too.

So Josh and Nick raced the final and Josh red lighted it.
Nick started about 3 seconds ahead of Josh as he doesnt run it as fast,
and Josh got too excited and broke too soon
so was illimated!!!
Such a shame!But a runner up trophy is pretty damn good!! His first trophy for racing!!!
Here he is doing is little burnout
Then racing
Here is a photo of Stu!
he always has to do something to ruin it!!!
And then scrapping...
I have scrapped the weekend away!!!
Here is a challenge from Scrapboutique
Black & Cream, birds and rubons...
"Devine at 39"
Not me, Brenda!! Im 41! :(
Card Challenge
And the roast
So thats my Sunday!!
Pretty damn huge!!
I think we need to make it official that Monday is the official Weekend recovery day!!!
No work on Monday!!
We have to rest!! Its compulsory!!
So, who's with me????
