more of our ups and downs

I totally forgot to tell you about our fantastic day out at Thomas. This year Keiran was old enough to enjoy it, although the train whistle was little scary. We toddled over the road on a very warm Sunday afternoon at the beginning of the month. Our lovely friends Tracy, Robin and Aurelia joined us and we enjoyed a fun packed afternoon of train watching, pottery painting and of course the very yummy sausage (topped with the special station pickle and onions!!) Oli and Aurelia had a wonderful time together and many a time did we catch them holding hands.

Very quick post but promise to come back soon

Ok, I know I haven't been here for a while but I promise I have been so very busy. I have been writing reports, which is where I should be now!!!! I have been sick, had a sick DH and kids and in amongst all that visited dear friends down in Napier.

I am entered into a few competitons and very proud to say that I am currently coming first along side my dear friend Tracy, at Scrapbox. Go to their site at and see my work and that of many talented NZ scrappers. I am also in the running for a making memories SLICE. Which I so very much want but not sure I will have enough entries into the SBO competition. So many talented ladies have got into the Christmas spirit and are producing lovely Xmas items. I am trying but I have to say OTP projects are not really my thing. Very out of the square for me but giving it ago.This one came 2nd in the 1st week at scrapbox.
And this one also came 2nd in the 2nd week. Am loving having my name up on the list of winners. Can you see my big smile? The xmas page was my wish list entry for SBO. I think I have already had my dose of sparkles this year though.

Last of all I am entered into the stars in their eyes comp at Scrappingpatch. I have to say I am very impressed with their service and my little parcel arrived safe and sound very quickly. I am now drooling over lots of new papers and bits n pieces. Spent too much money but don't tell Justin.

As for the boys- well Keiran is being a pest and being put in time out quite regularly for hitting. He is just at that testing age and boy is he testing my patience. Oli has just got back from a little holiday down South with Granny and Grandad. I think they saw every park in the area of Wanganui and toilets too??!! It seems that they had much fun and lots of late nights.
So so much for a quick post. I will leave now with a couple of pics of the boys in Napier. Did I mention it was in the high 20's and we had a fab time down at the beach. So if I'm not back for a little while, don't worry i haven't dropped off the edge of the world, got locked in the toilet at school or anything else horrid I am just a very very busy scrapping Mum!!!
