Well I hope Christmas was good for everyone. I was spoilt rotten, getting 3 seasons of house, jewellery, gift vouchers and heaps of scrapping stuff.

Anyways in my last post I said I was starting back at weight watchers and I kind of have. Now I am starting to record what I eat etc here form today!

2 pices of bread 2
220g baked beans 3

Potato salad 4

Afternoon tea
Small pkt chips 2
Cheese 4
Biscuits 4

Not sure yet, but looking at those points, not much!!! Maybe start for real tomorrow.

Scrapping wise I've made up some notepads, from lesson I found at Scrap therapy. I'm about to head back there as there is a surprise cybercrop on tonight!! yay since Rex is already sound asleep wiht Josie!!!

Hope you all have a great New Year!!!

Merry Christmas

Well Christmas is almost upon us. School ius finished and I'm madly cleaning the house!! We're having Christmas a bit late this year, everyone is coming for Saturday since Rex has to work all but Chrissy day.

We had a bit of news the other day. Once we get back from Melbourse, we have to move into a little 1-bedroom flat. The Teacher housing decided that it it perfectly fine to kick us out of our house. But I won't get into a rant. I was upset at first, particularly when I found out other couples got a 2 bedroom unit, but at least they can't move us now.

I've also decided its about time to get this excess weight off. I want to get back into my bikini sometime this summer. My starting weight is 77.9kgs and I'm hoping to lose about 10 kgs. I'm going to track my food and exercise here for the world to read. Seems silly starting Christmas week but i've put it off long enough!!

Anyways have a great Christmas and I hope Santa is good to you!!!

Don't you love Christmas

Well all around Cobar Christmas is appearing. Rex and I went to Griffith last weekend to do our Chrissy shopping and I'm pleased to say we just about finished it. I've also been madly making Christmas cards, I have to justify all the Chrissy PP I've bought!!!

THis weekend I'm flying back to Sydney for a week. Before that though, Scrap Therapy is having their December Cybercrop so hopefully I'll get some scrapping done.

I have also discovered the joys of Facebook. Come on over and add me!!!!

So only 2 a bit weeks left till holidays! Not that I'm counting or anything :)

Sydney :(

Well I'm back fro the big smoke and I must say it was a very eventful trip. I left here very early on Tuesday, with a 2 hour flight. I arrived late, I think the organiszers thought I could teleport from the airport to the department building on Oxford St. The course was okay on the first day, however once we went to book into the motel we found out there was no booking :( Where were we going to stay???? Luckily a room became available, a family room which we thought would be fine.

But no, the room smelled really badly of mould although we could see any. Also when we went to open up the "windows" we discovered they were just fluorescent lights with blinds over them. What a rip off. Now adding to breakfast taking forever both mornings, this motel did not sit too well with us. When we found out even the manager called it the dungeon we knew it couldn't get much worse.

Anyways we survived for a trip to the Westfield at Bondi junction, very cool btw. Didn't get to buy much though since I was flying.

Finally the course finished, and I got back to Dubbo. Rex had to pick me up there cause there were no flights back home till Sunday. So yesterday we started Chrissy shopping and had a lazy day in Dubbo. I was very excited cause when I got home I had a parcel full of Chrissy goodies form Scrap Therapy so I can now make some very cool Chrissy cards.

Round 4 Scrapping with the stars

Well I've just completed my LO for round 4 of scrapping wiht the stars and its startring none other the Josie. I've also ventured into the world of handmade cards and am loving it. Its a great time waster!!!

Here's the LO.

Not much else is happening, I'm back at work tomorrow to see what kind of mess i walk into. At least my teeth are less painful now.

Thursday, November 15, 2007


Well this week has been eventful for me. On Sunday I gave my first ever kids talk at church. Despite them looking terrified I was assured I did well.

Then came Monday. Dreaded Monday. I had all 4 wisdom teeth taken out in Orange. And yes, they did hurt... once the anesthetic wore off on Tuesday. I was informed I did really well, however that didn't make me stop feeling dizzy and nauseous on Tuesday. Since then as long as I keep on the pain killers I've been okay. I am soooo sick of weetbix and pasta, however discovered the hard way today on the trip home that it is still too sore for real food.

Any ways, Rex is at poker and I'm home alone recuperating. Next week I'm off to Sydney to learn how to help kids who are doing drugs.

Have a good week all.

Well the cybercrop is over and done with so I thought I'd share some of my LO's from the weekend. I completed the 2nd round of scrapping with the stars:Challenge one - Scrap a LO using contrasting colours

Challenge 2: Scrap a monochromatic LO

I also joined in some very cool cyber games, coming close to winning 20 questions!!
In other news, Rex is going well, Josie has been venturing outside much to my horror as it is at these times that Rex reminds me that she could run off :( Life other thanthat has been quiet, and as I'm getting my wisdom teeth out on Monday its likely to stay that way!

Have a good week all!!!!
