Patch


Here is our new little puppy, we've all been heart broken for weeks as our other little dogs Bob & Lilly went missing 3 weeks ago , after many missing posters, posting on ever FB group/pages they still have not come home.
As hard as it is to start again with a new little dog, we all needed Patch a little ball of fun , another friend.
RIP Bob & Lilly you'll both always be in our hearts, it drives me crazy that I don't know what happened to them, they had so much love & had even had their own birthday party in August!

Welcome Patch may you live a long happy life within our family

Starting a new series for craft


It's called.....  On my  table, it's all about my crafts, what I'm working on etc.
Here's today's ......working on catching up on my Project Life, this is how I do it, unload my photos from my cameras & iPhone , beg my kids for any photos that I can use , file all my photos by year then by month , print out a heap of page layouts , get on my laptop, using picasa 3, go through sorting, resizing & editing as I go, save all in a folder on desk top to get printed. With a biro I roughly fill in my printed out sheets so that I know where each of my prints will go. If I did this once a week it would be easy peasey but because I'm 3 months behind its quiet a chore. One I can do on the dinning room table while the rest of the families chilling watching a movie on a Sunday arve.
Until next time , what's on your table please share Wen x

Sucky day on the drought farm



Feeling depressed as it's getting so dry here, DH is always working away & I had to deal with a dying cow today so I had to suck it up and do what needed to be done, I come inside & my computer seems plagued with some virus that's only trying to get my bank details, could the day get any worse ?? So instead of having an orderly day where I quietly go about my office work, everything hit the fan!!! The only happy spot today has been this........ Of all the random things to end the day I've been cleaning out the shoe cupboard, and now my desk drawer, I just realised that yes I love pretty note books, here's the proof, all given to me by friends & guess what I don't like to write in them incase I mess them up. Now you know one more thing about me. I'm fine tomorrow will be better x

Was the best week end, because I got to meet & make new friends, we all shared our talents & tips, we actually crafted!!! We chatted, we ate lots, we had a week end with out kids, husbands, pets &  with very little washing up!!!!  What more could we ask for?? Maybe just more space  & cooler weather.

Personal Shopper

Hi all I forgot to mention that I now have my very own personal shopper, to supply me with my Project Life addiction , for the days when I can't just drive 4 hrs to shop!! Thanks Cathy you'll always be one of my besties, thank you for giving me something to smile about today when I'm in usually in my sad rut!



Happiness in a box

At long last my local ( only 4 hour drive away) Spotlight shop has finally seen the light & now sticks Project Life kits etc, I've been a follower of Becky Higgins before she even thought up this amazing idea, to simplify record keeping!!

If your looking for a good book to read ,that covers lots of real life issues,  country life, romance, & history of this  area I live in ,  etc.  Here is a great book that's new out that my Friend Heather Garside has written. Its even available on Amazon, I have a kindle so I brought & down loaded it in a few minutes, then spend all week end reading it. You can also get the Kindle app on your Ipad or Iphone so there's no excuse that you can't read it.
Now I really need Heather to continue her story into a series!!! There is so much still to happen I think.
Please feel free to share Heathers  page as we live in a rural area , it's not easy to get your name out all over the country, I'm trying to help as I really think this is a book that everyone could relate to in some way. And read just for pleasure too.

Mysteryous Mysteries in March

Its all about what happens & you have no idea why, where or even when some times, the things that never get solved, just some thoughts that come & go that you don't always catch.

feel free to add to them in the comments, all be updating as they grow.

  • why does one some socks get holes and not the other?
  • who shifts things when no one else did?
  • water bottles empty, but rarely fill
  • every ones always hungry
  • I still crave chocolate
  • it'll shower  rain when you've just hang the last of 5 loads of washing to dry
  • when you get a day alone, you spend it all up wondering which wonderful project to do first
  • when your at your worst you Dh says you are beautiful = he needs eye appointment fast!!
  • you loose you whistle , forget step 1 & 2, but remember step three is "you must eat grass"
  • the days that you feel like gardening but have no fresh plants to plant & no way your not going to weed.
  • snatches of conversation that you here on the school bus " such & such put the pet ******* on the back of a chair & it fell off , she killed it " OOps :(


to be continued by Wen ( that's me) and my crazy sista Roz ( that's Her)
