Handover day today. Congrats to Victoria she has many great ideas and she will take it and run with it. I am actually very excited…
I have plenty going on – in fact I don’t think I will even have TIME to think about missing it for a while!
Best get moving I have to hit the post office and a couple of other places then back home and back to the post office again hopefully before school pick up!
things are insane here atm.
Still here, still excited just very very busy.
Lil bro getting Married on Saturday
need to finish packing…
still working on instructions and tidy up for handover of Top50 on the 15th. Looking forward to a full day off from work and kids on Friday (might even go to paperific) and then off to a medieval do the following weekend – hoping for warm weather for the wedding but cold for the medieval (linen dress not made yet so only have wool)!
oh and my cousin had a baby boy – Yay! congrats Leonie!
I do have exciting news for Scrapbooking Top50 and for me…it has come time to part ways and I have found a fabulous new owner who is full of enthusiasm and new ideas. I will introduce the new owner soon, at the moment there is a lot of dotting of i’s and crossing of t’s going on. There are some very exciting things planned for the future of the site.
So please girls if you have some time to spare next weekend (3rd October) come along to my last top50 cybercrop. We started them (at my suggestion) back in February 2005 and I have missed only a few along the way – that’s a lot of cybercrops….
Running Top50 has been an amazing experience for me but it is time to move on. A lot of my reason for staying on was the fear of having to go back to workcover insurance if I needed to work but I realised a while ago that I have a lot of other options open to me know. The site has given me friends, new skills, new contacts but most of all confidence. There are many things I can do if/when I feel the need to return to the paid workforce. For now by the time I handover and get the kitchen installed etc it will no doubt be Christmas already when I will look forward to a much needed rest!
Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest is it not?
I did manage to get up at 9.30 wide awake which was a good start. The mini album class went well last night although none of the girls finished their album – too much talking or was it too much eating? lol! Still it was fun. Looking good for a re-run with a more girls next weekend too.
I got Owen’s sleeping bag sorted out after a trip to spotlight – I had to put a cord in the cover as it didn’t have one – even managed to get a red one! Got the deposit sorted out for our snow trip and nearly got caught up with dishes and washing so that’s all good!
Tomorrow is a good day. Owen’s normal teacher is back – we always loved her but all the more so after she has been gone for the first three weeks of term! The little boys have their swimming lessons. Owen is being invested into Joey Scouts and has to bring his sleeping bag etc as they are going to ‘practice’ for the sleepover on Friday…..LOTS happening but good stuff! All good.
Oh and don’t forget midnight Monday for the cybercrop deadline! Next month Soovee is going to host (while I’m sliding down a mountain on a piece of plastic with a small boy)! she has some great ideas so it is promising to be lots of fun!
Just in case some people were thinking I had changed my mind…not so. I have just been incredibly busy with several things on the go at once…all the more reason to find someone ORGANISED who can take over Top50.
If you are interested or know of someone who is then go and look here as with all such things price is negotiable.
I was going to help at school today. Last term Owen’s teacher thanked us all for helping and asked if we could please still come when we had the relief teacher as she was going to be away for 3 weeks this term. Well the first Friday back I had a narrow deadline for something so I couldn’t. The second one my mate was leaving for France to live and I promised to be home so she could drop stuff and I could say goodbye, today I was set to help….only I was told rather adamantly that I really wasn’t needed at all. I am SO happy that their real teacher will be back on Monday. Have been less than impressed with the substitute teacher. She comes across as disorganised, doesn’t appear to be able to ‘control’ the kids and never never hands out notes to the kids at the same time the rest of the school gets them – can’t say how things are inside the class as well I’m not needed!
Anyway Tonight is Scrapbooking Top50 Cybercrop night so come on over and join us for the fun as we have three awesome challenges to get you scrapping!
On Saturday evening I am teaching a mini album Class to launch the new Stampin’ Up! mini catalogue – there are some really funky stamps in there and some gorgeous patterned paper and we are going to use some of this BRAND SPANKIN NEW stuff to make a fabulous little mini album …I can still fit in a few more so if you want to come just let me know!
I also want to get a cupboard finished painted so I can clear a space and bring it inside in the hopes of being able to declutter some stuff in the house too!
at long last – apparently we got really busy?
