Well...... what else has happened this week so far?
I scrapped a few layouts.....nothing to share just yet...and nothing I'm particularly pleased with....but I'm easing back into it.... AND THATS OK!

I did do this one before my surgery.....its my first layout about this journey..... and my feelings about the news.... the journaling is unplanned and scrawled.... it just came out...and I like it that way.

Mitch has had lots of work.... and another 25hours of work planned for this week....its nice to see him enjoying it....and having a bit of spending money.

Briony began her new job this morning too....she has got some casual work at the local deli....and was so excited to get started today.....she is home....tired...starving and looking forward to going back tomorrow....

Brent on the other hand is still job searching....I have spent the morning assisting him with job applications..... and gently prompting him to drop off his resume at different places.....I'm longing for the day he gets permanent work....

Our house is on the move again..... the gyprockers arrived today....and the bricklayer is back in full swing.... I love seeing it such a hive of activity...

Otherwise Im recovering well.... a little stiff and sore.... but taking it easy...doing my exercises and eating well.....oh...and reading....Im enjoying a good book at the moment...lifes ok.


  1. Wow Mardi - what a BEAUTIFUL layout - I loved looking at all of those different pics of you too. Your journaling is so heartfelt and totally you - thanks for sharing that with us. I will keep everything crossed for Brent that he finds the perfect permanent job too. So glad you are going OK. xx Janelle

    Fab layout, and really touching, heartfelt journalling. I could relate in a small way to some of your journalling but that's another story. You are a champion. Good news about your kids. What's the book, by the way?
