Random post following...

Hi All, I hope you're all keeping well. I am feeling a lot better now that the flu has finally left my system after 8 weeks!! However, Eme is now unwell and had to visit the hospital on Saturday...damn asthma! I feel so helpless when she's struggling to breathe. Thankfully she didn't have to be admitted and she appears to be on the mend. Poor chicken.

Yesterday we celebrated Father's Day with my family and Andrew's parents at the Gymea Hotel...very yummy! The kids gave Andrew a couple of polo shirts, some boxer shorts, a Stiggy bank (Top Gear, for the uninitiated), as well as a mini album. My Dad is a huge fan of Billy Connolly, so I treated him to his complete boxed set of "World Tour" dvds. Andrew's Dad recently bought a caravan, so we bought him a Road Atlas - very handy for the caravan. Seth also picked out a Stiggy bank for him too...lol.

We then dropped Andrew at the airport and he'll be away a little while for work. The drive home from the airport takes around 1.5 hours and Seth entertained me the whole way home telling me jokes, and reading me stories...time well spent! Andrew took the mini-album away with him, so when he returns, I'll share it here. Its full of pics of him and kids, plus Seth did the journaling about what they like about Daddy. One of the pages says "Daddy looks like a friendly man". lol.

Here's some incredibly bad pics we took in the car park of the hotel...full sun, plenty of glare and lots of double chins! lol...but we've recorded it, and that's the main point.


While away at the Scrapbooking Delights retreat last month, I was feeling all lovey dovey and missing my hubby, so I created this one about him. Kim picked up some goodies for me from the Stitches and Craft Fair because I was too unwell to go...and yes, if I missed the craft fair, I really was feeling very very very very sick indeed! lol. Loving those LYB Traveller transparencies and the Sullivans diecut lace paper!
A couple of weeks ago, I decided to get tattooed on the spur of the moment! Well, I had been planning it for quite some time, but I didn't think I'd be getting it done quite so soon. I went along to hold my friend Jodie's hand while they tattooed her foot, and ended up getting mine done too! I'm really happy with it. Its nice and small and discreet (inner left wrist) and it says "s&e" for Seth and Emeline. I designed it myself using CK's Love Note font...too funny that I have a scrapbooking font on my body permanently! The kids are completely fascinated with it, and Eme keeps asking me when I'm going to wash it off. Seth just tells her "its there until she DIES!!". He also tells me he's getting one right up his forearm like the footy players...eek, he's only 6 (and very impressionable). I figure at 35, I've made the right decision for me. lol.
Anyhoo...off to pick up the kids from school, daycare etc, and commence the nightly routine of dinner, bath and bed. Have a great week everyone! Lis.
