Birthday Blooms two ways

Hi blog friends! I am a little taken with the new-ish “Birthday Blooms” stamp set in the recent SU! catty. It is a super versatile little stamp set with a gorgeous flower that I have played with quite a bit lately! I actually think I bought this by mistake … but have definitely had fun…

Some hearts ….

Hi again! Firstly … yes … I was VERY self disciplined and DID do my cleaning before anything else yesterday! I am one of those nazi mums on cleaning day, though! I like to think it will stay clean at least for one day! (Sadly, often it doesn’t! … unless everyone is out for the…

Shane’s 21st

Hi guys … I know it was a week ago … but I just wanted to mention what a super fun day Shane had at his 21st last Saturday. After panicking that the weather was going to ruin all our plans … in the end God did have a much better idea than we did!…

Just a quick note!

Hi everyone! Just letting you know that Stace has an interview on Monday (after passing an assessment 2 weeks ago) for a graduate Law position in the Legal Dept of the Taxation Office in Sydney.

Kid news!

Hello … I am feeling a little nervous for my eldest son (20yrs) right at this moment. Shane is in Sydney doing an “aptitude test” for the ambulance service. He is hoping to be accepted as a paramedic and this is the 2nd step of the process. The test lasts about 6 hours … so…
