I just had...

one of the best weekends of my life.

Words cannot really describe the friendships and laughs we had but I would do it all over again in a flash. All of you EB girls are just fantastic - we seemed to click right from the start and it was as if we had been friends forever. I am going to do a Jody and copy and paste what I wrote in EB lol

I can't remember the last time I laughed and cried so much. My cheeks were soooo sore from all the laughing (not giggling but full on tears rolling down my face - hehe Flick think of the rubon on my nose/forehead )

Never did I think that the weekend would be as fantastic or memorable as it was. One of the best weekends of my life and sooooooooooooooooooooooooo worth flying the 3500km to get there to meet you all (and the families and kiddies YAY!)


Flick - my roomy my pal! You are just so awesome - you went out of your way to collect us and run around - show us the scrap shops and liquor shops and nibbles etc. Brodie is just gorgeous - so funny and WOW at the Mario - has he got to level 5 yet?? MWAH MWAH MWAH you know

going to work my way around the table so I don't forget anyone lol!

Moya - lol once I got over the fact you had dark brown hair and not blonde you are hilarious - love your one liners and track of thinking Hope you made it back ok and not too tired from your sunday night shag FEAST!

Cat - you are exactly as I thought - just so easy going and it was like I had met you before - was thinking of you flying home thinking you would be home before I even landed rofl even though you left 90 minutes after me!

Susan - thanks for the wipes and the stamp loan just such a wonderful person you are - can't wait to see what you do with those stunning photo's.

Ang - you are more gorgeous and fun loving than I could imagine - awesome sense of humour and your girls are just beautiful and Coban sooo sooo sweet - just loved the kiss and cuddle he gave me when we met. Give them all a hug for me

Jo - My tall champers drinking buddy - Feel like I am repeating myself but feel like we got along like a house on fire and so loved being able to finally do a Cheers with you. Hope school goes well etc and yes my girls wouldn't let go of me either

Sonia - what do I say - from the moment you walked into scraptac and squealed and came running over to hug me - I felt like you were a long lost friend.... something connected.....will leave it there - will email you later

Meredith - as I said at the airport - you are a scream and fitted in to our little group like you were meant to be there. Amanda - you need to get her on msn so we can keep in contact.

Amanda - I remember sitting at the scrap table thinking omg - you are right here in front of me - something I never really thought would happen - I am soooooo glad you came and we finally met. I know how you feel..

Ruey - one person I was looking forward to meeting - you are just lovely - I remember chatting once to you on msn about Brunei and couldn't wait to catch up. Hope todays agenda went well and can't wait till you know what!

Tracey - right now every time I read a post of yours I will think of your accent and now know what you look like! Emma is so sweet and thanks for all your hospitality

Rach - what a rocking chook you are! pmsl - don't know how you kept going with all your drinkypoos and how your voice survived.

Kim - can't wait till you come to Perth in January. By then your big tummy will be gone and you will have your gorgeous son with you. Thanks for an awesome weekend

Dannii - I know you weren't at the retreat but sooo glad you made the effort to come out to tea to meet us all and then shopping the next day with your brood - Ashca is just delightful and Chloe and Gemma too!

Scrapping wise I didn't get as much done as I hoped I would.....something to do with me being not very organised and I had to keep searching for things in my bag.... will come back later with some photo's once I have cropped and edited them etc. Suppose to be doing some bookwork atm - yesterday was spent washing washing and washing as well as lots of tidying up - I think Gary appreciates how much work does get done here now lol

Thankyou all :)

Head down and Bum up!

Is what I have been doing........

Boy - it has been busy and OMG I can't believe it is now less than two weeks before I am in Melbourne meeting all your scrappy chicks!!! Can't wait.

Got my hair done yesterday in prep for Melbourne - school hols have started so didn't have any more kid free time to attempt it seeing it takes 3 hours hehe! So for the retreat girls this is what I look like rofl!!

Been sooooo busy doing my masters stuff.. Absolutely love what I have done this year. perhaps a little bit over the top but I think it is me - busy and bohemian styled and loving it!! Can't show - fingers crossed you will have to wait 6 months pmsl or msn me!!

School is now officially in holiday mode - We did get school reports although the teachers union threatened it wouldn't happen - there would have been words and letters written if I didn't get one.......Jess had an awesome report - all B's apart from 2 A's for art and science and 2 c's for sport and Technology and Enterprise - her teacher is great too.

Work is good - loving being able to go out and just work as such but still trying to organise the house so it fits in with the schedule and I don't seem to be gearing up for the next work day....


Jason turned 19 and the next day wrote his dad's car off - oops....he is ok - hope he learns to slow down lol!

Maurs is up for another 2 chemo sessions and then 4-6 weeks of radiotherapy.....I guess they are just making sure the cancer has gone.......Nearly there.

Chionia had a birthday party today - Emily next door turned 4 - have waited for her to be big enough for this dress - LOVE it - Jess refused to wear it - didn't like the collar but it looked so gorgeous on Chionia

some photo's of the sky about 5pm last night - was hoping for a bit of a storm but nothing much eventuated here for us!

I know a few people have tagged me - I may remember to do it next time - not very good at them lol!

take care all :) until I meet you in Melbourne!!!
