Ianie's having a birthday...

20 September 2006

Today is Ian's birthday...he's turning 21 + gst.
We dont have huge plans ..... it wil be a quiet night at home. We have a tradition in our house that the birthday person gets to choose their birthday dinner ....I asked Ian what he would like and he replied "Lambs Fry in Gravy'......Eeeeew that just isnt happening. Today is also Alex's birthday (Brents girlfriends) .... I would imagine Brent will head off to Waikerie and spend the night with Alex...... we were laughing...imagining....in a couple of months time.....Brent will say something along the lines of "Yeah Dad .....when is your birthday anyway?" It would not surprise us at all..... its busy in 'Brents World'.

Yesterday was finally the School canteen meeting day....we spent an hour in the morning shuffling through all the options....and working out what the best plan of attack would be for the school. Last night was the Governing Council meeting where I presented our decisions to school council....now we just have to put all plans into action......and hopefully employ a new Manager. Its great to finally get this happening...its been on my mind......and I couldnt wait to cross it off my 'brain space' list.

It really has been a quiet couple of days for a change...I have had a chance to scrap some pages and Im loving it. I was reading on Belinda's Blog the other day...about her scrapping a page out of non-matching papers.....now Belinda's layouts are the most gorgeous, and coordinated layouts usually...so this was a break from her normal and something she really needed to challenge herself to do. This made me realise.... I never co-ordinate papers...what would it be like to co-ordinate everything?...... so I hope you dont mind me using you as an inspiration Belinda...I had a shot at it... and to be honest I found it a bit limiting but I was happy in the end. Oooohh...and I get to catch up with Belinda today...and see the gorgeous bub Makenzie...and beautiful Madelin. We havent had a chat for ages...so Im looking to that......and also catching up with Cheryl from RSS.... its going to be a lovely afternoon. Anyway this is my Belinda inspired co-ordinated layout...hehe

I promise to have a huge layout share later....I have managed to finish another five layout's ....even though I ran out of my adhesive on the second one...and have needed to use photo tabs and double sided tape to adhere EVERYTHING....so darn time consuming. I have just been finding it so easy this week...my head is full of idea's...and the layouts are coming together really well...Im so pleased with them. (are you allowed to say that.....or does it sound non-modest...lol) I promise to photograph and start uploading some today.

Not a huge amount of other news..... those bloomin varmints (rabbits)..have dug a hole in the bottom of their hutch...it does have chicken wire in the bottom...but they've found a teeny hole...and turned it into the Sydney tunnel......Im not sure if we will even have rabbits when I go out there this morning......they may have burrowed to freedom.....although Im sure the first stop will be my darn vegie patch again...Grrrr.
