Today at the school assembly, Shawn's reading group performed the play that they made up by reading the book "Amy and the bullies". They did such a great job!!
The first pic is Liberty playing at Pre-School when I had to drop some things off. The next few are Shawn receiving an award. As you can see he was already dressed for his play. The lovely Monique is in red. That is Shawn's long time girlfriend in the pink apron. We had a lovely conversation about her marrying Shawn after assembly, I must talk to Shawn when he gets home from school :)
PS. for a larger view of the photos click on them!

The pic of Liberty is the first one that I have taken of her with my new Nikon. It is not a brilliant photo, but still cute :)
Today was a very productive day! Pam came around for '5 minutes'.... So together with Rachels help we wrapped all of the lucky dips for the School's Spring Fair this Sunday.
Pam also put together 2 outstanding posters for the highway.
She is very talented Miss Pam :)
I cut the letters out yesterday afternoon using
the cricut. It is a super machine for a job like this.
Well Shawn just rode in from school so I will go and see how his day was. Bye :)

6 Weeks ago I ordered myself a new Digital SLR, Nikon! Ever since my first job in photographics I have wanted a Nikon. With 2 weddings booked I thought now was a good time.
So long story shortened so as not to bore you all... I got ripped off!!! I wanted to buy in Australia and do the right thing. So from a company in Melbourne I won the auction. After a month of excuses as to why they had not sent the camera I finally complained to Pay Pal. Friday I walked into work and got exactly what I wanted. I paid a bit more but I had it!!! Saturday morning Pay Pal had returned all of the money that I lost to the dodgy Ebay seller!!! I love it when things work as they should. I am now a huge fan of the Pay Pal system!
I have taken over 300 shots on my Nikon, Sorry Rachel and I have taken over 300 shots :)
When I make the time to download the software I will share :)
My super soccer boy had his first presentation day today. He picked up a hat, certificate and a awesome trophy! I am very proud of him, he improved so much!!

We were told yesterday that it would be the last camp Lisa would run... Lisa does a FANTASTIC job with her camps and she will be missed.....
I managed to pump out 10 single pages and 3 double LO's. Not too bad! The one above is one of my fav's.
It is for the 123 Challenge CC. The challenge was to use, Material (felt and thread from upholstery fabric) Circles and flourishes (flourishes are stamped with watermark ink so you don't really see them in a photo, sorry) and also bling.
I am so, so tired. I am looking forward to November when my major commitments are over!! Then I can get back to my life for awhile!
I arrived home from camp to find Matt sick with a cold. He only managed a fews hours of work today, he is now sound asleep. I also have Shawn home from school with a tummy bug that has been doing the rounds.... Did I mention I am looking forward to November....
