hot hot hot............

It has been so hot here lately that we are all roasting the poor kids at school and me here at home. I am lucky though I can at least have a bit of down time here inbetween dropping/picking kids up from school and activities & doing the general household chores. In that said downtime I have been doing a bit of crocheting for my shop. I must admit working with wool in the heat isn't much fun either but I haven't got the energy to get the sewing machine out and sew so it is on the couch under the fan for me. Speaking of this I can hear a cold drink and the fan calling my name as I write!! Till next time:)

Feb's first post..............

First post for the year and it's all the way in Febuary!! I have good reason for this and it is that we weren't here for any of January. Myself and the kids had a big break back in my hometown of Melbourne. We had such a good time catching up with my family and all our friends. Many a day was spent talking and finding out how everybodies life have changed over the past 2 years. Yes it had been that long since we had been home obviously I have spoken to people in that time but you don't seem to get all the info that way. Anyway all are good and Melbourne put on it's usual extremes of weather. I was either bloody hot or too bloody cold!!

While there we also had time to fit in many shopping much to see and buy! Typo was discovered and many cute bits & pieces found an example is the above printed ribbon. We are now unpacked and if it wasn't for all the stuff we need to find new homes for I wouldn't have thought we had been on holidays at all. It all seems like a distant memory.

Now for what is happening here!! Kids are slowly getting themselves ready for the return of school next week and I  am trying to get my head around being back in this space and working out what to do with it. Last year lacked a little something to say the least, I either need to get a bit more commited to it or give it away but I am afraid that is a post for another day as a nice cold drink is calling my name!!
