Don't Send Flowers

I am still in the land of the living!!!!!

It's been a bit of a roller coaster ride the last few weeks
A lot of you will know about all the happenings
For those of you that don't it doesn't really matter
I've put it all where it belongs in the past and that is where it will stay
OK moving on
Congratulations to everyone that made the Masters short list
that is a major achievement in my book

I have noticed a few of you mentioning Christmas already
might I add I'm staying in denial for a bit longer
but for those of you who are not there is a
Secret Santa Swap
on Sharons Blog
do stop by and join in the fun

also stop by Kathies Blog
for a chance to be in one of her lucky draws

Both Sharon and Kathie are beautiful generous friends
and I feel very blessed to be able to call them my friend

We....... that is Chris me and the girls
did get away for a couple of days in the first week of the school holidays
We headed off to the big smoke (Melbourne)
We went to the Pompeii exibition at the Museum
the Dali exhibit at the Art Gallery and the Melbourne show
Had an absolute ball loved every minute of our time away
The girls favourite was the Show they really loved the Animal Nursery

At the moment I am cleaning out have started in the kitchen dining/family room
I am using this rule when it comes to getting rid of stuff
If its useful or extremely beautiful or seriously sentimental
it can stay
Boy have I got boxes of stuff to take to the market to get rid of
I am making good progress using this rule
Wonder if I can apply it to the scrap stash???????
my scrap area is in the dining/family room so need to do that
before I can say this room is done
looking at all the stuff!!!!!
it could be the end of next week before it's done

Well beautiful people
That's all from me today

leaving you with a LO I did ages ago
and a couple of snaps I took when we went to Melbourne

Melbourne Trip
