I have an oven!

YAY for me! So exciting, it's so shiney and pretty and CLEAN! I'm loving loving it.....still waiting on a  camera :( hopefully the wait won't be too long.

My boy is recovering well from his operation. Thursday was our worst day....absolutely horrible! I couldn't put him down....and he cried all day :( was so hard that day...especially to keep his sister occupied all day!

On another note, has anyone suffered anxiety/panick attacks? OMG I had my 1st one friday night, out of the blue, couldn't sleep when I went to bed and wow it was horrible.....then all saturday I was off colour, kept dreading another one, cried off and on all day too which surprisingly helped :) we had to go to an xmas party saturday night where my wonderful friends calmed me down and sat with me for ages trying to work out the problem that was setting me off.....we figuired it out! My son, I must have been holding it all together for so long that it just came gushing out, i felt horrible about his operation, his pain, everything! Then yesterday I was ok, til lunch time, cried again, felt better (lol) last night went to bed early and sobbed to hubby and have woken up fine today (touch wood). I think I just needed one heck of a cry (or 4) - sometimes being a parent is such hard work and we don't let ourselves take a much needed break - my new years resolution is more ME time :) Am going to book into card making or scrapbooking classes once a week or fortnight.

Thanks for reading my sook story
hope you all have a fantastic day....


PS 4 sleeps til Christmas ! WOOHOOO my kids are SOOOOOO excited :)

one of those days...

I know I'm having a sook but I'm just having one of those days! Must be lack of sleep. My boy had his operation monday, I got no sleep monday night in hospital. His op went super and he was recovering really well...eating cookies and sausages on day 2!!! They warned me about the bad days to expect, days 3 and 4..... :( we are currently on day 3 and it's horrible. Crying non stop and I'm just plain exhausted. I can't put him down at all.

Am just feeling a little down and I have no motivation for anything crafty.....just wish I was as good as the rest of the girls I follow....practice makes perfect I'm sure but is me huh?

Colouring techniques

I am having troubles with my colouring....I try so hard lol but it never looks like the ones I see coloured on the blogs. I've tried looking up U Tube but don't seem to find anything overly helpful on there.

Anyone else got some good suggestions?


PS may finally get my new oven in on the weekend....AND our air con broke after yesterdays 41 degree heats :( AND I am positive we have some kind of spirit in our house (no I'm not crazy!) and I did a little test last night...yep something isn't right here....SO I called a lady who is going to do a house extract (from her house) and we'll see how that goes! (am grateful she is free)

bundle of nerves

Am off to the specialist today to see if my boy needs his tonsils out. Am so nervous about it all.

More insurance dramas - seriously they are USELESS!! One can only hope to have an oven by xmas. I've been getting so stressed over it all and having major headaches lately....I'm blaming them!

Just a quick one today....still no camera! grrrrr.....

Insurance Companies are a NIGHTMARE!!!

ARGH! They are just a pain in the you know what! I'm STILL without an oven! They just don't seem to give a rats about it which is so disappointing considering you pay all this $$ for insurance, you want it fixed asap!

We had our daughter's birthday party last weekend where  hubby took his mobile phone swimming for 20mins before he realised it was in his pocket! Thankfully after a week of drying out it works (to a degree lol) and then yesterday I did all the mowing of the house land and my daughter says 'come look at this mum, you back window is all sparkly and funny'.....OMG! A rock had flicked up off the ride on at some stage and smashed the back car window into 10,000 pieces! Seriously they say it comes in 3's and that had better have been 3! I can't deal with anymore!

I've made a couple more cards but still can't show them cause I don't have a camera :(

I did order some great things from 7 kids college fund and it arrived in 5 days from the USA! That really was speedy postage :)

Hope all is well in blogging worlds....hopefully when I get a bit more up and running I'll get a few more followers hehehe....
