Easter Hols .... gone too soon.

Well, I am sitting here, relaxing, after a hard day at the beach, finding it hard to accept that the Easter Hols are nearly over, it just doesnt feel right only having the long weekend. But it will prob be worse in 2 weeks time when it really is the school hols ... and I have to work! it's the first time in over ten years that I havent had the school holidays off with the boys. The twins, luckily for me, do enjoy vacation care, I am so lucky that the people there are so nice, but going two weeks straight might be a bit much for the boys - I reckon they will be exhausted by the end of it. This time together on the Sunshine Coast has been great, they loved the beach today. Pity the older three couldnt be part of it, but that is getting harder to organise as time goes on.

Happy Easter

Well, it's that time of year again when you wrestle the crowds and head up to the Sunshine coast, to get away from it all - just like everyone else is!! I suppose it does help tho having a sister living up there who needs to have her house, and dogs, sat for the Easter break. I've had some great news this past week re my scrapbooking - but i am not allowed to share it with you yet ..... so stay tuned! I've been checking out Lusi Austin's blog tonight and her use of 'recycled' stuff on her LO's just blows my mind!!! That is one talented woman. She inspires me to have a go and actually follow my thoughts. I've always said I am an idea's person - I just need to have the courage, and time, to act on them. Hopefully this new situation (the one I cant tell you about yet) will allow me to do that.
Oh well, better keep packing. Hope you all have a happy and safe Easter. Cheers.

Wow!!! I just received an email asking me to go on a DT........OMG!!! I am so chuffed. I haven't finalised details yet, so I can't make any announcements, but as soon as I know for sure I will pass it on.
It's wonderful to have someone acknowledge your talents in such a positive way. I mean I love the fact that my friends like my work, and more importantly that I like my work, but this acknowledgement still gives me a warm, fussy feeling.

More details to come soon I hope!!

Free Tibet - YOU can help!!!

As the Olympics are in China this year, there isnt a better time to draw attention to the plight of the Tibetan people. The Dalai Llama, on 10th March, gave a heart wrenching speech, stating the fact that " the language, customs and traditions of Tibet, which reflect the true nature and identity of the Tibetan people are gradually fading away." What a tragic thing for him to watch . Lend your support to the people of Tibet by visiting the Aust Tibet Council website and join their email campaign to our Foreign Minister, Stephen Smith.
Thanks guys.

wow - my slideshow!!

It is a truly great feeling to have a go at something and to succeed. I just placed the slideshow here in my Blog, and tho it took a few attempts at fiddling around with settings and finding my way around photobucket, I got it to work!! Yippee!!
This positive, pat myself on the back feeling, is a new thing for me. I have recently started a new job and it is great. People actually call you over just to tell you you are doing a good job! And in the 4 months that I have been there I have never heard 1 staff member speak ill of another (and there are about 20 of us)!!!
Certainly not typical staffroom behaviour!!
Now if I could just cut the 1 1/2 hr commute each way i would be loving every bit of it!!
cheers to all

Phantom of the Opera

I cant believe how much I enjoyed the PotO the other night. It was brilliant!!
We saw it at QPAC and the stage design and special effects were out of this world. Not to mention the singing. Would you believe that we still dont know if we actually saw the real Phantom, aka Anthony Warlow! We are pretty sure it was the understudy during the first act, but I personally think it was the 'real thing' after the intermission. He seemed different - taller for one thing!
I have emailed the theatre to ask them , but to no avail.
I wish someone would tell me.
Either way though it was a fantastic night!
