I am sitting in my chair with my laptop and Miss Molly in her now normal place, squashed between my leg and the arm of the chair. She is growing so fast and has become very settled and loves to be with us and we are of course devoted to her. I am amazed at some of the traits she has that are similar to Gussie but she's very much her own girl that's for sure, quite independent, and yet very cuddly and huggy.
The only downfall to having a kitten in the house is I feel very nervous to get all my scrappy stuff out, but today I have a real urge to create so I think I'll have to be brave and get all my stuff out and just hope for the best.
Hopefully there'll be photos later.
I've got scrap camp in a couple of months so I have to find my mojo before then ......so here I go, lets see how far I get !!!!!!

Apart from that I've been busy with work as usual and have been trying to cram in some scrapping, well at the moment I'm into my two Smash books, one of our trip to Oz and one with kitten photos of Molly, it's a quicker form of scrapping and more "diary like" I guess.
Anyway apart from that life's been fairly busy but the best bits involve our darling Molly who right now is sitting beside me waiting to pounce on the keyboard!!!!!! Lol!

The graduation ceremony was held at the school in the morning and it was so uplifting and inspiring. The emotion level was very high I must admit, so proud to see my darling girl graduate high school.
But when it came to drama it had to be the ball at night. OMG! They went all out, it was a fairy tale event, held in a very beautiful hotel. The couples arrived in beautiful verteran cars, my niece and her partner, who is also her lovely boyfriend, in a blue and silver Impala. Her gorgeous black dress would have been at home on the red carpet at the Oscars. Everything was perfect except for the fact that only boys from the school were allowed to accompany the girls to the actual dinner and ball. Guests were welcome to stay for the presentation of the girls and then before the dinner and dance we were asked to leave, but what an experience, and of course what a huge night for the graduates.
It was also lovely to meet her lovely boyfriend and some of her friends.
We went on to have many more adventures on the land of Oz, so watch this space.

I just found this photo of Gussie, it was taken just after we got him, probably about the beginning of 2004. What a gorgeous boy, I’d forgotten how big he was when he was younger. I just love the look on his face, it shows how much he hated having his photo taken when he first came to live with us. I guess he just became resigned to the paparazzi. LOL.
Before we fly off to Brisbane and then drive to Surfer’s Paradise. Sooooo excited, nervous and impatient all at once lol!
So much to look forward to, going someone we’ve never been, being brave enough to drive in another country, (this is a biggie) but the biggest is seeing Sam graduate High School. This is such a big deal I can’t even explain.
And then we get to go back to Brisbane and explore this amazing city. I’ve been to Melbourne and Sydney but Faye has never been out of New Zealand so it’s going to be so huge for her.
We have been planning what we want to see and do but essentially I just want it to be an adventure that we totally love.
But there will be updates and of course there will be photos, so watch this space.
Anyone know where the Scrapbook shops are in Brisbane?
Watch this space.

I'm hoping to get some card-making done, I've got an idea taking shape on my table so that's a start.
But 4 weeks today my best friend and I will be heading for our Aussie adventure!!! Woohoo, sooooo can't wait. It'll be so exciting to see something different, and explore somewhere we've never been. Of course the main reason for going is super exciting in itself, my darling niece is graduation high school and she's invited us to be there. I'm gonna be the proudest Auntie in the hall lol!
And I have been checking out some of the highlights of the area so I do have a must see list, a must try list and a must buy list. But most of all I just can't wait for the adventure, to be somewhere different, seeing new sites and enjoying it all.
Four weeks! Wow that's gonna go fast!!!!!

Today I saw the most beautiful sight of all, he was sitting on the seat under a tree in our local park, she was sitting on his knee gazing up at him with total adoration on her face, the two of them totally devoted to each other, to see such a beautiful bond just makes my day, I hope it lasts for a very long time because this really is a Love Story.

On a personal level I was so thrilled with myself, despite being super busy from the time I walked in the door till nearly midnight I felt absolutely fine, a far cry from last year when a night like that left me in big trouble, so clearly I'm back to my healthy, "tough as old boots" self.
So now I have today and tomorrow to play, I have some cool ideas I really want to try. I just love all the vintage stuff at the moment, especially the images. I have bought some from a site on Etsy and I'm very keen to try some of the amazing ideas I've been admiring around some of the amazing blogs I've discovered at the moment who are also going "very vintage".
So the thing now is to make a start and see where it takes me.....wahoo love "play days".

I have become obsessed with watching Scrappy "How To" videos on Youtube, and after watching a fabulous one last night I knew I wanted to fix this.
So it's been a productive night and I'm happy but now it's time to go get organised.
