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.

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.

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!!!!
