I have been so busy with school, family and scrapbooking that i haven't been able to get onto my blog. I have heaps to put on here but not enough time at the moment.

Melanie and I took our store to Maitland on Saturday and we did a crop at the Rutherford City Bowling Club. We had a lovely day and met some lovely scrappers. I forgot to take my camera so don't have any photos.

Melanie and i are now getting ready for the big camp the first weekend in JUne at Vision Valley. This is always a wonderful weekend and we have a ball with friends and new ones.

Mother's day was lovely yesterday. When we came back from Newcastle I stayed the night at Melanie's because Brian was away and I didn't want to be alone. I went to Church with them in the morning and the servise was wonderful. We came home and Gavin cooked us a lovely bar-be-cue of garlic prawns and octopus. plus Mel made anice green salad and we had some lovely expensive French Champagne. It was the best champagne I have tasted. Mel and Jes gave me a dragonfly on a metal stick to put in my potplants. I love dragonflies. On the friday night Jessicatold me she had a dragonfly for me. LOL. Some children cannot keep secrets. However, it was still a surprise because I had no idea what it was going to be. Amanda gave me a 12x12 storage system for my cardstock. I now have to sort it out.

I came home to an empty house. brian has been away for work all week. It is so quiet around here when I am all alone. I do like my own company and need the space from time to time. I also miss Brian when he isn't here. I also enjoy not having to cook every night.

I bought myself a new car and have had it for 2 weeks now. It is a little silver Toyota Corrolla.It has power steering and airconditioning and is so lovely to drive. It handled the roads well going up to Maitland in the weekend. I will post a photo of it on here when I have one soon.

Amanda, Craig and Cooper are going up to Old Bar near Taree to live. They will be moving up there soon. Craig has already gone. I will miss them so much. I will miss seeing Cooper every week. I often call in after school to see Amanda and Cooper. I know they will be better off up there and Craig's grandfather will look after them and I will not have to worry.

This is all for now. Will get back on soon and post photos and layouts.
