Funeral and also for Debs


Hi Deb, can I please pretty please have an invite into your blog ? blogger wont let me in :)
 I have lost All my contacts as my darling Bobby (dog) knocked down the laptop with the plug still plugged in and of course we all know how it landed straight on the plug sending it straight into the hard drive = one dead laptop( we had the funeral last week), so I'm now at the stage of grabbing what I can and from whom I can all my fav sites from their sites DOGS WHO WOULD HAVE THEM ?  ME ME ME

HELP Smell


Hi girls.can anyone give me any suggestion's as to how to rid the house we have just bought of cig smoke? the carpet is too good to just rip up also it's All through the house so would cost quite a bit to replace , the house has been empty for 12 months while the owner was in hospital then moved to be with her daughter and put the house on the market.
As some of you know I'm moving for health reasons myself so I'm not looking forward to the move ! now this smell is making the move all the harder for me. Didn't know cigarettes could smell SOOOOOOOOOOO bad.  I did /do smoke under stress I keep going back to the rotten things but if I do have one it's outside and not right next to other people.
ANY help would be great we will be having the carpet cleaned

Moving form country to town


Hi girls, Sorry I have not posted for quite some time I just lost my MOJO for no apparent reason , now we have just sold our house and are moving into town, not because we want to however health reasons say it's what we must do.
So now I'm hoping that the change will help me get my life back in order and  get my MOJO back where it should be.
So I'm thinking I now need to change my blog name yet again since I wont be in my country cottage after the 4th of next month.

Just pics


Just a couple of pages I have done this week, one is my granddaughters leavers dinner, two male birthday cards and last years Christmas page for my granddaughters album.
One of these days my sewing mojo has to come back.

Latest edition


(image) This is a page I did of my Granddaughter and her boyfriend Gerry at a wedding on Devonport beach in February , I did not want to put too much on the page and take away from the actual picture of them , The paper matches her dress and the label at the top matches his shirt.

What Ive been up to


This is what I have been doing instead of sewing the baby is my Great grandson the grandma in one of the pics is my daughter and the father is my grandson, the other pic is of my granddaughter and her partner on their boat fishing, hope you like them. If you click on the pics you win get the enlargement

what do you do when


What do you do when you have lost your sewing mojo and found another mojo for scrapping and card making ??  No  doubt it wont last too long :)

Lovely day out


(image) Who did I have lunch with today ?? your friend and mine Rosie , we went to Anvers chocolate factory and had the most lovely lunch (NOT CHOCOLATE) Qiqa had to have a play in the delivery train with Rosie :)

lovely surprise in my mail box


I got a great big surprise in my mailbox yesterday morning it was soo exciting, I could feel something soft inside however as everybody who lives in the country knows you have to drive to your mailbox so most times you pick up your mail on your way back home at night , with it being winter here that means it's dark so me being me could not wait till I drove back to the house (no street lights out here) so I just HAD to put on the car light and rip into it and it turned out to be a gift from my friend Jo of Lilly Pilly formally Jo in tas and I just love it to bits Thanks heaps Jo I just love it,  OK so this post is back to front what do I do to get the pic at the bottom ????

would you believe from this at the Sheraton to this


I was  one of millions of people stranded at Melbourne Airport on Sunday night, what annoyed me most was not the fact that over the air came the announcement Jet star management have now decided we will not be flying! anybody with a brain at all would understand and accept this as a small price to pay considering the poor folks in Chili and the affect on them, it was the fact that Jet star personnel had magically  vanished when we went back to "check in" for help as to where to try for a room or what to do next ALL the other airlines had staff helping passengers to find accommodation etc., being a long weekend all the hotels we knew in Melbourne were fully booked already then with all the people who were stranded on top of that !!! We eventually were helped by a lady who was at the airport shuttle counter so we ended up in a hotel at St Kilda (NEVER AGAIN ) we went from this  to this which folded up when one of us (not me) sat on it. this by the way cost us $245.00 per night talk about taking advantage of  a disaster situation

Sorry Girls


Sorry to all the girls I normally send comments to blogger wont let me comment on SOME blogs so if I'm not commenting on yours but you see that I am on others please dont take it personally it's blogger not playing fare,
