This was a learning curve for my son & husband to stop spying on them every 5 minutes. The supposedly 2 females have now laid again. I have been advised that Zebra finches breed worse than rabbits and can nest anywhere, including the seed container.

But, on a different note, I shall be attending another Sunday scrap get together sessions elsewhere in Bundy (hopefully this eventuates). More details as they come to hand.

He looks like death warmed up - completely different to the little man who came out of theatre with a smile. The anaethastic has really knocked him for a 12 (worse than a 6).
SO, we all had spaghetti (out of a tin kind) for tea, just so he would eat something (hope it stays down).
I can't afford another day off work, as I had 2 weeks off just 2 weeks ago, so if he is sick then Miss has to skip another day of school (as dad can't do 2 things at once apparently, but mums can do more than 2 at once!!)
More updates later.

I left dad on watch duties tonight while I bought Miss Attitude home to go to bed as she has to go to school tomorrow (despite having today off). I will relieve dad of his duties tomorrow morning after taking Miss to school, might drop into the hospital first though.
Will post update later.

But before I even start the day off scrapping I have a fashion parade I am going to attend with my friend Dianne (we met approx 6 months ago now where I previously worked) She has been a great listener, great advise too what more can a gal need.
I am still not well but, I will do my best to get something done, because, next Friday night I doubt I will even open my scrap bag let alone scrap up a storm.

I am not well at the moment - I have got "A Typical Pneumonia", just a few weeks after having "Influenza A". YES! I was immunised earlier this year but I still got sick anyway, just a week before the Girls Nite In fundraiser, glad I got sick before and not during.
Time to take another antihistamine and off to bed for me.

However, I did get to meet our local member of parliament this morning, Mr. Rob Messenger, while I was at Mr. Jack Dempsey's office. Mr Messenger asked if I had "worked for the Queensland Cancer Council fundraiser before" I was stoked that he thought that as it means (to me) that I am getting out there and doing the best I can to promote the cause!!!!! Are you???
I will post again soon.

Father I must confess it has been 1/12 since I last blogged....... LOLOLOL
(Those of you that do know me personally know that I am a "sit on the fence" when it comes to religion. I know, I know, I married an Italian catholic, I was married in a catholic church, my children are baptised catholic, my children go to a catholic primary school & I am a sit on the fencer.)
Where do I start....... Oh yes that's right:
- I haven't got to school to ask/inquire about the fundraiser with Stampin Up! for the fete
- I haven't got any prizes yet for our "Girls Nite In" scrap night fundraiser for Cancer
- I haven't been to a workshop/class for over a month
- I did get a Highly Commended at the Maryborough Show in May
- I will be working 6 days a week for the next month
- My princess (maybe not) has gotten into Shalom College next year
- I am on the beg, grovel, plead for prizes for the SSS fundraiser, so if anyone out there would like to donate please feel free to contact me or check out the SSS blog
- I have done several layouts for online comps - ASJ, OSS & sketches oz (Thanks to Petrina for doing some of her magic on my terrible photos)
"Camp 2005" created by My daughter, Marie.
"Pixie Pix" created by me using Ann Lederhose's sketch.
A layout I have done recently for a LSS challenge.

I am going go to my children's next school P & F meeting & put it to them to have a fund-raiser stampin' up demo & all items made to be donated to the school to be sold at the school fete. I have already asked Katie & Janine if they would come along and they have agreed, so far so good.

http://www.i-scrap-therefore-i-am.blogspot.com 10.30am is when it all starts. I've heard whispers that there maybe a Baptism on in the church next door, so keep that yelling and hollering and excitement down when you arrive please - at least until you get in the hall, ok! ;-) Don't forget Petrina's challenge 1 of many on the day - get scrappin' mine's done - yes there is a first for everything.Now it is brag time - my little princess (maybe not - sometimes) got a 2nd place in the Crafty Kids section of the Sew What's Crafty Expo earlier today. She doesn't get it from me though, cause I can't even draw stick man any better than a 2 year old (sad huh!)
Fingers, toes, everything crossed that the Maryborough yearly show shows some compassion, this year (if I am good enough to win anything) it actually pays, $3-00 for a 1st & $1.75 for a 2nd & 50c for a 3rd. YAHOO. Getting paid for doing what I love to do to pass the time away. LOL!!!!
Oh, I almost forgot CONGRATS again goes to Petrina for taking out the MASTERS SECTION of the Sew What's Crafty Expo earlier today. So ladies/gents (as if anyone is going to read this) there is going to be chockies tomorrow (so I've been lead to believe)then it's on!
SEE YOU THERE, thinking of you Stephanie - hope your feeling a little better today than yesterday & better still tomorrow.

Also just over a week til the "Cancer Council Fundraiser Biggest Morning Tea/Afternoon" being held by the SSS club (run by Petrina & Cassie) http://www.i-scrap-therefore-i-am.blogspot.com/.
Well I finally made it to the Midnight Scrap last night at The CAC (Creative Artz Cottage) for the uninitiated. I hadn't been since Jan 26. :-(
See you all later (well those of you who read this anyway)
30 April, 2007
I know that the retreat was last week-end & I didn't get there for the whole time but made it for the last 4 hours. I had to work on the Saturday & at the last moment was invited to a Stampin' Up party. So I made the most of the situation none the less.
I was there to witness what a mess 24 women can make when men or kids are not present.
Well done Sandra - you are one of a kind scrapper.......
Petrina & Cassie I am lead to believe were none the less spectular as always with their layout packs & amazing ideas for the whole week-end.
So now only 3 weeks to go until the Biggest Morning Tea Scrap Day. I hope Petina isn't going to run short of bottles. I endeavour to drop off my goodies to her this week (I promise Petrina).
I have some sad news today........................................
I didn't win the EDM competition held by For Keeps Magazine. I got my album this afternoon :-( Oh well maybe another time.
Until then - Take Care (but be careful doing it)
19 February, 2007
I sat with Michele & Kerrie joined us a little later with her beautiful daughter Emily in tow. Michele, I found out during the afternoon was the master chef behind our C-Cups on our Pink Friday Girls Nite In.
I finished off several layouts that I had started sometime or other in the last few months.
