blog update

Children say the funniest things - my daughter Ella 8 going on 18 said to me this week on the way to school "Mum do I have bags under my eyes? No Darling of course not was my reply - Her reply "That's good because I don't want to look old"!!!!!

Then a couple of days later she said "Mama I don't like the shape of my bottom"
my reply was "I will swap yours with mine" ........ no thanks I think I will keep mine she said - I laughed at that one!

I have been scrapping quite a bit lately, and I have been delving into some arty projects which have really been fun - so pleasd Mr Mojo has returned!

Next Tuesday I return to the Surgeon about my ankle.
It has been in the moon boot for 6 weeks, and it has been 3 months since my performing accident.. At least I am driving now, which helps. The pain is quite intense, especially at night, and the swelling is still there. So I will have more answers after Tuesday.

Thanks for visiting my blog, lots of pics to follow in the next few days.

What is happening in your life today?

Today I look out of my window and see the beautiful sun rising and setting and i am taking a moment to let it wash over me.. Sometimes we forget the simple things in life. I have had a lot of time to reflect, analyse, think about what makes me smile over the past 12 weeks being laid up with an ankle injury. Perhaps a blessing in disguise slowing me completely down!

I am grateful that I have my own scrapping space at long last (thank you darling husband). I have been scrapping up a storm of late

I am grateful for a very special new friend who cheered me up yesterday and knew just what to do and say - she pampered me and I feel fabulous mmmwhhha Mama Nat.

I am grateful that Mia has cleaned her room without being asked and is slowly turning it into a "tweens" room....

I am grateful that Ella has taken Mia's lead and has started to clear out all the "old babyish stuff" according to ELla.

I am grateful that my husband has agreed to walk the Kokoda Trail with his son in 2012, this will be a wonderful experience for them both.

I would love to know what you are grateful for - please leave a comment for me
