Guess where I'm going?

Two weeks and two days. Tavelling up to Strath to see Don and of us are going to catch the movie in Mt Barker, woo hoo can't wait. It's been so hard reading reviews about it on blogs from the States, but not long now.

For Coco

Looking a little bewildered about being in a different house but seconds later she drifted off to sleep so I'm guessing she really wasn't too worried.

Coco's little Essie had a sleep over at our house. She fit right in and tinkled around the house after me all day. Such a sweet and gentle little soul.

go Seamus, my little disco elf

Some more photos from off my phone, I down loaded the memory card when I changed over phones a couple of weeks ago. I have been having quite a chuckle seeing some of these shots that I didn't know were there. I was quite happy with the way they printed up, was not sure if they would.
Title cut using the klic-n-kut and the font galuli, scalloped edge and dot edge cut using the cuttlebug and the quickkutz cookie cutter borders. Stamping done with hero arts stamps and just rite-stampers (avalable here ) Circle punch ek success and scallop and larger circle spelbinder's nestabilities.

A little hanging I did using doodlebats from
scrapnfonts and my klic-n-kut. I found the inspiration for this on someones blog and of course forgot to write down whose. I really must remember to start doing this. So if it came from your blog, thanks, a really cool idea.

It makes me happy

to see these apples forming on my trees. There is nothing nicer than fresh fruit and vegies straight from the garden.

It's a record

This is my fourth post today. these photos are a couple I found on my phone that I had forgotten I had taken in Melbourne a few weeks back.
Jane very happy with her hand bag find at the Vic market (love that place) Sharon and Maria sipping drinks on Lygon street. We had the yummiest meal at an Italian restaurant called Cafe Corretto(or something like that, I remember it sounded like cornetto)
It was the most beautiful barmy evening and was lovely to be able to sit outdoors. Very unseasonal for Melbourne in October.

Lady bird, lady bird.

There is a welcome invasion of lady beetles at our local park. Aren't they the sweetest little things, those and gorgoeus lime green lace wings are my favourite of all the bugs, the rest of them I can quite easily live without,lol.

My birthday

Mmmm, Mississippi mud cake and mixed berries, mmmm. Thanks Coco. The girls.

On Friday I celebrated my 41st birthday with the girls. Had a great day, lovely pressies and Coco made me a cake. Love days out with this crew. Was extra special because Donna was able to make it down from Strath and have lunch with us. thanks Don, thanks girls.

We did the dance, we did the zombie dance.

To be sung to the tune of the monster mash (you know it's gonna be stuck in your head all day right?)As I mentioned in my last post the school did a dress down for down syndrome day last friday (Halloween) Seamus thought he would put a a bit of a show and do the zombie dance. I don't like the first photo, he looks so creepy with his eyes rolled back like that, an ability he inherited from him paternal Grandpa, th elast shot cracks me up though. It's amazing how a bit of cheap face paint and a grungy wig can transform someone so completely.
