it's raining..... it's pouring......

i love this weather!
i know as strange as it seems, even when were not in dought, i love the rain. it's just a good excuse to stay inside and do nothing.
Shanice thought yesterday was a great day for a pjamma day, but she did get dressed when we went grocery shopping and then back into her pj's as soon as we got home.
I even went out and stood in it this morning after i dropped the kids at school. Every single part of our gutters are overflowing, the pool is also overflowing, the back verandah is flooded and i'm still completetly soaked from bringing in the garbage bins and i don't care!
I just went outside to take a few pictures, but the batteries have just died on me :(
On to other news........ the past few weeks have been extremely tough on me and my family. Dad is now in the process of receiving radiotherapy and chemo to beat this thing.
But I'm not going to elaborate on that one as it's far too emotional for me and i'd rather keep things light.
Shanice and Connor are loving beening back at school. Miss Shanice is in year 3 and has a fantatic teacher who will push her and really get her up to speed. And Connor is in year 1, no longer the baby of the school, he was all excited about getting his teacher who is just lovely.
We've already started the homework thing with Shanice, and it's huge! I can't believe the sudden jump in spelling words and, yes, there is already a project due in 5 weeks!
We have a "meeting" tonight with Connor's teacher and then one on wednesday night for Shanice's teacher. We get to go in and the teacher explains to all the parents what's happening during the year etc. So that's where i'll be tonight, of course right when deperate housewives is on, lol.
i went scrapping with my gorgeous friend tracy on friday. something we've never actually done during school time, and we've decided that this is just going to have to be a permanent monthly thing we do because "I need my tracy fix", lol.
Thanks trac, for friday, you really cheered me up!
i managed to do this in between all the chattering we were doing.

then on friday night after i took the kidlets to cricket i did a cyber crop over at cath's Little Scrapbook Shop.

i did this

i only managed 1 layout, but one's better than none. and that's the most scrapping i've done in yonks.
speaking of cath, i'm about to run out the door and meet her and sheree for lunch and goss.
(sheree update your blog girlie, lol)
