Yeah schools back



Yes!!!!  schools back.....

Aidan has been back at school for  a week now .....

And boy I have seen some changes...


He doesn't want his hair done with  gel any more because he is a big boy...

He is also becoming responsible for remembering what he has to take to school on certain days such as Thursday is Choir practice he needs his music and lyrics...what is amazing is that he wants to do choir without being pushed ha ha we have since found out there is a couple of girls he likes in choir...ha ha ha .


But even though he looks so handsome in his winter uniform I am missing him now that schools back....

Don't get me wrong the house is clean  the kitchen is perfect no biscuit crumbs or packets around but the house is so QUIET....I miss hearing him sing and laugh and watching him and Lilly playing and running through the house .

So now I wait till next holidays  then I can whinge about how noisey and messy he is...

A very special cushion



We received a very special happy mail this week....


My friend Mardi The love Supreme made some beautiful cushions for her girls and I commented them and asked if she would make one for Aidan with a picture he had drawn.

Lucky for me she said yes and I sent her this drawing which I love of Aidan and Dog Dog....

 
I love everything about this cushion.the colours are perfect for Aidan's room they are perfect for a boy.
 

The look on Aidan's face was priceless and he yelled happily " dog dog "... then he grabbed the cover and hung onto to it for dear life...


Mardi even put this tag on it for me saying "aidan @ 6" which is how old he was when he drew this picture...


Check out the AC/DC  on Aidan's shirt and look at his hair -bits of wool and yarn....PERFECT..

 
Well for now this beautiful cushion is staying on Adan's bed he puts his head on it each night and goes to sleep with it.

I am sure this is going to become a well loved family heirloom...

Thank you Mardi for this gorgeous gift...

You are my Sunshine



Aidan is mums youngest grandchild...and doesn't he know it.....

He loves his Nana and pop but has a special bond with his Nana ....

She calls him her little sunshine....


Aidan loves it when she calls him Sunshine or if she writes it on a letter for him...


Nana can do no wrong in Aidan's eyes and mum spoils him with her love and I love seeing them together..

Come on Aidan what are you crawling for here ? ha ha ha


Anyway mum found this cushion in Kmart and just knew Aidan needed to have it....

As soon as he saw it he knew Nana bought it for him and that it was special....


I told Aidan if he was sad or lonely to hug his pillow and he will feel his Nana's love come through it and I have seen him talking to the cushion as like mum was in front of him not just a pillow....


Sunshine lives on his bed with all the other cushions difference is Sunshine is from his Nana...

Flashback 2



Hello I had a couple of emails last flashback saying they loved the  picture of Easter Aidan that I thought I would give it another go....


Today's picture is of Kerry and her best friend Brianna when they were in kindy.

Oh My Goodness this was 1988 I remember it because it was Australia's Bi centennial .

In this photo the girls are dressed up as old Sydney siders at Old Sydney Town that used to be at Somserby near Gosford..

You thought we dressed the girls like that everyday didn't you ha ha ha .

I remember Jan and I sitting at my dinning table both sewing machines purring along as we made little skirts and mop hats for them to wear.

These girls were that tight they even had to have the same shoes or else there was trouble...\

Both girls have grown into beautiful young ladies with kids and they still remain friends even after we dressed them like this ha ha ha

OK friends here is a disgusting photo of my laundry....URGHH....

It is suppose to be getting renovated after my ensuite which is after Aidan's bathroom but I am so sick of this laundry that I think it may just jump the queue.

We had to buy a new washing machine as ours finally broke so we went for a front loader because I want the washing machine and dryer to all be under the bench.

And that's all I know so far.

SO if I intend to queue jump and do this before my ensuite  I better get some ideas together fast  ha ha

Bathroom renovations part two...

The saga continues....

All the tiles are out and gone...


Timber has been changed and this photo shows the shower and the little rectangle  you see it going to be a built in wall scones you know for shampoo soap  that sort of thing.


The bath frame has been rebuilt and I am really happy because it is higher then the last bath which was quite low to the floor...


The bath has arrived yeah and currently it is living in the guest room. One of my friends when she saw this photo called it Bed Bath and Table...
 

Guess what the bath fits. Well of course it fits Kevin measured it ha ha .

I also didn't want a plain bath  I wanted a free standing bath but the bathroom is so small so that was out of the question. So we bought an oval bath and I love it ....


So the bathroom is ready for waterproofing which hopefully will happen this weekend then its the tiler turns so you will see that in the next instalment.

Scrap book app for your phone.

I am kinda over scrap booking.....

I love it, and I love looking at other peoples scrap  pages but I think I have lost a bit of craft mojo.

To do any craft is a effort for me lately I want to do it and sometimes I even start but then these stupid legs start to hurt and that ends it ...

On Instagram I saw a few peoples scrap pages that they had made by using this Project Life App by Becky Higgins and after having a play around I think a bit of mojo is coming back....
How it works is once you have  downloaded the app to your phone you can purchase packs which has backgrounds title pages,layouts and other cute bits. Currently I have about for packs which range in price from $1.29 to $2.99 & once you have the pack its yours no need to buy it again you just use it again and again.There is quite a few to chose from boy packs or girl packs colours ,school,neutral and bright packs.The best part is they can be mixed a bit from this pack a bit from another its  your choice....
 
 
So pick out your layout then add your photos add a pre printed card or two and then any text if you want it. There nice and easy and when you are finished save it either to your phone or share it print it the choices are endless.
 

This one needs some more on it I think I'll add the movies tickets and a few other pieces I have but you get the idea...

Now these pages can be saved and then printed whatever size you want .I am not sure yet what size to do still thinking about it.Maybe 5x7 but that's today tomorrow I could change my mind ha ha .

And another fun part about this type of scrapping is when it is printed you can add to your page  just like a normal scrap page.


This one was the first one I made and I am very happy with it....

Well I think I may just go back to my phone and have a play I think so of my mojo is coming back...

Washi to the rescue...



I had a big meltdown the other day .....

In our house we have five apple devices.

3 phones and 2 mini ipads which means 10 leads and 10 chargers.

Now a certain little boy keeps taking leads and chargers and losing them oh he doesn't take them he "borrows" them .

Well on this day he "borrowed" Kevin's phone leads and then Kev was mad cause his leads were gone Aidan was mad cause he said they were his leads and me well I was just mad...

So I got all the leads and chargers and some washi tape and matched them all up to the correct piece.
Then I washi taped each pair.

SO now everyone has a lead and charger with matching washi tape so there cant be any mix ups when "borrowing"someones charger or leads.

Well that's the idea lets hope it works ha ha ha

I cant believe where the time has the time gone ....

Easter 2015


We were to have a quiet Easter this year as Kevin and Aidan were going camping ...

They left Good Friday and were to come home Easter Monday well that was the plan till the wind and rain hit and they came home Easter Saturday....

Sad for them bonus for me he he he ....

Easter Saturday Kerry and Jaxon came over and it was just lovely the  boys playing and getting lots of cuddles from Jaxon...


Isn't he a doll... look at those teeth I so love the gap.He gets that from Mannys mum.


Kerry and Jaxon love these two heaps....


My little boys .....life doesn't get better having these two in my heart....


Easter Sunday we woke early as the Easter Bunnie had been and Aidan had eggs to collect.....


Took him awhile to fill he is basket but fill it he did...

I love his basket he has had this since he was two .I bought Jaxon one last year hope he uses his each year as well.


After we got dressed we headed off to Kerry and Emmanuel's for a visit and more eggs urghh but it was fun seeing the boys play together.I love how Jaxon says Aidan...


Easter Monday saw a visit to Bunnings for more supplies and a lot more of this.....

So in all Easter didn't turn out how it was planned but I wouldn't change a thing.

How was your Easter....
