...I should just add..

27 February 2008

....that I did my hair today.....and I actually quite like it!
I should also add that Im so glad I did have it cut.... to have it all drop out suddenly would have been too much of a shock.....and Im quickly growing accustomed to my new style...so Im making the most of it.
Thanks again Keryn....mwah.... you have made a difference to how I feel about this whole process...

So.... just quickly.... if you get the latest Scrapbooking Memories.....the one with the most beautiful layout on the cover..... belonging to this gorgeous girl.... then you will see it contains a couple of my layouts too....

ohh...and I was tagged..... a couple of times actually.... thanks Kathie....and Tammy....

10 Years Ago:
I was Mother to a almost 9 year old....a 6 year old...and a 4 year old......we were living in Bordertown.... and I was working casual at either the John Waltons clothes shop..... my parents deli..... or Bordertown Pumps and Refrigeration in the offiice.

Things on my to-do list today:
I was hoping to get to Renmark to confirm my carpet for the new house (cant see that happening) I was also hoping to get to Medicare (cant see that happening either).... so Id just like to finish work... and see what amazing progress has happened on our new house today.
Have an early night

What I would do if I were suddenly made a billionaire:
Retire.... finish off my house ...pay a gardener to landscape it..... invest... set the kids some money aside....buy a bloody big caravan and 4 wheel drive and buy my ticket to the grey nomads club.

3 of my bad habits:
1. I fold washing....and then leave it in piles in the rumpus room out of sight ...I dont often actually put it away....and I hate that I do that.
2. I'm a worrier - yep...way too much ...and I try to please too much.....I say yes to things...even when Im screaming "nooooooooooo' on the inside.
3. I used to drink too much coffee....but I beat that one....cant stand it now.

3 places I have lived:
1. Bundaberg Qld
2. Bordertown SA
3. Barmera SA

5 jobs that I have had:
1. Governess
2. Nurse
3. Office Clerk
4. Sales Assistant
5. Paramedic

5 Things people don't know about me:
1. Im not a morning person.....I only grunt to about 8.30am...seriously...lol
2. I can water ski
3. Im shy.....and talk goboldy gook when Im nervous around people.
4. Clutter stresses me out - ditto Kathie
5. I went up in a plane full of nude skydivers and watched them jump out.
