This is where I am at on the Enchanted Alphabet. I plan on stitching on this today after the chores are done.

I am going for a walk this morning with my mum. We are walking to the new country craft shop at the bottom of the road then we might head off for a quick coffee before I head home. I don't see nearly as much of her as I should and am trying to make the effort. It is so easy just to shut the door and do your own thing.

We went to a rock and roll tribute night Saturday night in Pakenham. It was Elvis,Johny O'Keefe,Roy Orbison and Dusty Springfield. Was a good night and there were 10 of us and it was nice to have a laugh and a dance and not worry about the kids who were at my sisters house being watched by my niece. Thank you Lauren your a doll.

Did have a run in with a kangaroo on the way home luckily no big damage. Thank you Dad for always telling me to watch for roos and what to do if one jumps out at you. I am sure thats what saved us.

Ok off to make hay while the sun is shining (hang washing).

Miss you dad xx

T is for Too much Ebay

Hello again form the queen of ebay or so I have been crowned in this house.

I figure if I can find stuff we require on ebay at better than store prices then it's worth doing right? I am sure you know what I mean. We live on a budget and often have to re think purchases to fit the budget. BUT since I have been activly ebaying I have been able to get things we would normally not be able to have soI figure its a good thing.

The Rose Gold bangle came and it's beautiful I had it checked and it is 24 c rose gold. so for $11.50 it was definatly a bargain. I am still waiting for the memory card for Jakes phone GGRRRR I emailed the seller who appologised as in Hong Kong they are an a 7 day public holday so he is posting it today. We are also still waiting for the digital camera. Issues with stock blah blah blah so no idea when that arrives. I am also waiting on a new pair of converse Chuck Taylors I won for Shannon. $80 in stores I got them including shipping for $45. I am now hunting a pair of air force ones for Jake. They are $160 in stores the cheapest I have found them on ebay is $90 but we can get them for that at the Dandenong market so might just go look there again and see what happens.

In other Mazzan news....

We have moved the in laws. not going to discuss it cause I am still having nightmares! Saturday main moving day.... She went shopping he drank beer and leant againts a box all day and everyone else did the rest. Enough said.

Colin has decided to play handy man and is renovating the in laws bedroom and bathrooms amongst other things. He installed a new clothes line Sunday and that was a hoot. Have photo's on my phone need to work out how to get them off.

Saturday night we are off to a show with my sister,BIL,Mum,Aunt and some other friends of my sisters. It is a tribute show with 4 impersonaters. Elvis, Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield and Johnny O'Keefe. Sounds like a good night I think.

Ok off to get some chores done before Colin takes me to lunch.

Today is Thursday

I am home today and just can not seem to get going.

I am taking Adam & Shannon to see Wall-e at 10 so should move and get some washing out before we go. I made this name tag for the GTG in March. I need to go buy some interfacing to iron onto the back before I cut it and put it in a holder.
Bit worried it might fray?

I need to get a tassel today for another project so might risk it and take the kids to spotlight. I know i must be crazy right.

Not sure what I am going to stitch next. I might do a bit more on my Enchanted Alphabet next and try and get it done. I do have some Christmas stuff I would like to stitch but just can not get into that yet.

Went to see the in laws new house last night and man am I surprised. it is a very nice house but so not like anything they have brought before. In saying that I mean it is below their usual standards. This place you could consider a dump and I think there is too much work to be done for them at their age. Both DH and I are more than a little worried I can tell you that much.

Well best go get a load hung and another on it isn't going to do itself it would seem. I have waited over night and it's all still sitting there.

Waiting on 3 deliveries today.. Memory card for Jake's phone, Rose Gold Bangle I won on Ebay for $11.50! and a new digital camera DH decided I needed. I like when they want something it becomes someone elses need to justify it's purchase.... I think DH might need some new woman's clothes (in my size of course) oh and perhaps that new rug for under the PC desk....

Have a good one all
