My Baby's FIVE.........

Mandy & Connor 19th November 2005

Noooooo........ I can't believe that my baby's five. It was just over a week ago mind you, lol. Now I get, "Mum I'm a big boy now and I can sit in the front of your car." God love him.
He had a great birthday and was totally spoilt rotten as per usual. We gave him a playdoh activity table (which he just loves) as well as a TV and DVD player for his bedroom. There was an alterier motive for that one though, we needed to make room in the longue room so we put his V-Tech console in his room so he can now play the damn machine.

We had his party at mum and dads and phew! It didn't rain or hail or was stinking hot. So he finally had his jumping castle. But, good ol' Connor sat in the house playing with all of his toys. Then said to Grandma "Grandma, I've had enough can you tell everyone to go home now?" LOL.

To make matter worse, so to speak, we went and bought his BIG school uniform last week. He's growing up far to fast. He looks so handsome in his new blue uniform, even though the shorts are a bit big and fall down. Nan can fix those because I'm a terrible sewer.

Well the washing machine has just stopped, so it looks like I'm back to the good ol' housework. YUK! Will have to fill you all in one Santa's Kingdom next time around.

Old Friends

I had a great day today.
I raced around this morning like an utter mad woman. I had to pack enough bags for Shanice for school, circle journals to drop back to the scrapbook shop, lunch with friends, and then swimming after school. The front seat of my car looked like a bomb had gone off, you couldn't even see the seat.
On my way to Teresa's house I diverted past Krisy Kreme's. They didn't last till I got there and I ended up having one because "it was such a long drive", lol.
I haven't seen Teresa for......... years, about 4 or 5. It was so great to catch up with her and Dallas for lunch. I can't believe she has 4 kids! They know what causes that, lol. And of course I got clucky, again, as Teresa has a baby girl, Stephanie, who's only 6 months and Dallas had 10 month old Makayla. They are just too cute.
As much as I'd love a new baby, I don't think I can go back to the whole nappy and midnight feeds again.
Speaking of babies, my baby is going to be 5 on Saturday. I can't believe it, no I don;t want to.
We've organized him a jumping castle and fingers crossed this time it wont rain. For his 3rd birthday when we booked one it poured and we ended up having to cancel it.
Oh no, I think the dog is attacking Connor, in a nice way, lots of licking, lol.

And it's on AGAIN........

In my next life I've decided to come back as a male truck driver with no kids, lol. That way I can be rude and assigned and it doesn't matter. And of course no kids so then there is now responsibility and it's QUIET!
Well, having said that I'd best explain why........ because being a male truck driver with no kids means I'd be able to "NO" to everyone. I know it's just in my nature to be giving to everyone that asks my help. But, it's not a bad thing, most of the time.

Well, I've done it again, I've said "YES" and I'm organizing my second Scrap Girls Retreat. This one is going to be in May. Which only gives me 6 months to get the ball rolling again. Hang on....... the first retreat only finished 4 days ago. I swear I'm a mad woman, lol.

I've asked, more like told, my sister Mandy to help me with this one. I've done nearly all the ground work and have all computer programs in place, it's just a matter of re-contacting people and stuff. Mandy's good with that type of thing though, it's what she used to do with her previous boss. Maybe I should call her Miss Organization.

Tomorrow is the day, I'm going to start the prep work for the next one. So, keep your eyes peeled for me going slightly nutty with all the planning.

WOW! It's all over - what now?

I can't believe after 8 months of planning my first Scrap Girls Retreat is all over. It's sad in a way, but at least now I can relax for a while before preparing to do another one.
I do hope that all the ladies had a great time, I know they told me that they did, but people always say thay and I'd love to be a fly on the wall on their drives home to hear what they actually thought.
Al least now I do know what worked and what didn't.
Well, I suppose it's back to unpacking. I was so exhausted when I arrived home last night that I just dumped all my crates in the lounge room and that's where they still are. YUK! I hate unpacking. Maybe I can persued Connor to do it for me, lol.
