why do the children only share the yukky things in life?

:idea: felt

When we want them share they don't and when we don't want their bugs they are happy to share with us! last week Oli came down with bronchitis and now he has shared with Keiran and me. I have a chest and throat infection that I really could do with out! Needless to say I am feeling like a bus has run me over and not in the mood for being creative.

So where have we been and what have we been doing?

Not sure where the last 2 months have gone. Oli started school and just loves it, well most days anyway. He had a slight confrontation with a couple of girls with unkind mouths but other than that he has settled well. he enjoyed showing off in the pool at his school swim sports but unfortunately missed the duathlon due to his chest infection. After just 6 weeks he has graduated to level 2 in reading and is loving reading his books to us at home.

I have been relieving at Mauku( Oli's school) and my old school Puni. I enjoy having less pressure at work and it is making doing the school/kindy run much easier. Although a full week relieving proved to be a little much!!

My most exciting news is that I am now a Stampin' Up demonstrator and slowly getting my business up and running. I love playing with the product and the stamps are just gorgeous. I have always loved stamping and I am now loving my new stamps on my pages. keep an eye out more my new blog, I will be setting up. It will be a creative blog and will advertise all my classes, crops and product Kits!!! It will also have tips and techniques as well as some inspiration. Let me get over this bug and then I will let you know all the details!

The design team work is coming thick and fast and I am loving designing for ScrapwithVanessa and Scrapping Patch. I have just ordered some gorgeous goodies from both sites( sssshhhhh don't tell J!!). I announced on Scrappin Patch that I will be setting a challenge and giving away a RAK from my own stash. So come back later tot check out a photo of the RAK and go over to Scrapping Patch to find out about the challenge.

ScrappinwithVanessa will be having their next Cyber Crop on the weekend starting 3rdof April. It is always lots of fun chatting to the girls and is chocca block with challenges and inspiration. head over to the Site on that weekend for endless fun!!

Must dash off to school to pick up Oli but I will leave you with some pics of my last entries that won me the Stars in their Eyes comp and a couple of the boys.
