Scrappy girls in Kiama 15,6 & 17th April 2011

We have a unit in Kiama which the girls and I have been using for mini breaks away scrapbooking.

This weekend was our second venture away. There was 5 of us this weekend. Moi, Gail, Michelle, Helen and Lesley. Sadly our good friend Margaret could not attend.

We had the best time. On our first weekend we stayed glued to the unit 24/7, this time we changed things a bit.

Firstly, the weather this weekend was atrocious Friday and Saturday but cleared up for us on the Sunday which was great.

Friday night we dined out at a local restaurant a few doors up (lucky 'cause it was pouring), amazing meals. Saturday mornig early walks then after much stirring about 'strippers' coming our surprise maseuses came, well surprise for me anyway. What bliss, 2 hours of pampering each, devine. This is a piccy of Miss H having a pedicure. She looks so content 'cause she had just had a one hour whole body massage, bliss.

Saturday night we ate in but the amazing James had cooked us Moroccan chicken with Olive and Apricot Cous Cous and sent it down with the devine Miss Rosie, Yum. He had also sent Chocolate slice and a gorgeous gluten free cake for Helen and he spoils us, really he does. The man should be bottled.

Sunday morning, Helen and I walked early, then we all breakfasted out and wandered through the markets which were set up all along the break wall parrallel to the man street in Kiama.

In between all of these activities, we scrapped our little hearts out, listening to music and singing along, much to Michelle's disgust.

We had the best time and we are hopefully going to squeeze in another weekend in late June, just after Miss H comes back frm Hawaii and just before 4 of us head off to the LSBS retreat in August. I think a replica of this weekend could be on the cards, it rocked. Oh and the pampering, we must have the pampering again. Loved, loved, loved it. Oh and James the food, we must have the food. Hahahahahaha

March ATC swap @ LSBS

This is my March ATC, theme 'Occupation'.

As I have been working in the accounting field for the last 10 years as an office administrator I thought it apt.

It is a fairly simple card but I thought clean lines were appropriate for my theme. Had a little fun with the title though, hahahaha.

Whew!!!!!!!!!!! What a month it has been

Wow, what a busy month and a half it has been and so many things have happened. I sometimes think that my life is a bit same, same but when you blog you realise just how busy it gets.

A few things to catch up...............

The Kiama weekend was such fun with all the 'kinder Mum's', what a time we had. Linda's house is just amazing and she is a wonderflly warm hostess, we had a ball. Below is the view from her balcony, she is right on the water.

We have all know each other since our children started school in Kindergarten and have remained friends since.

We have a get together once a month, the first Wednesday night of the month at a local spot. A lovelier bunch of women you will not meet tan these 'Gorgeous Girls'. When I get a copy of a group photo I will add.
