Happy Long Weekend!

7 06 2009

and here I am at home on a Sunday…. not working you say?

Indeed not working my pretties …

because I have recently been (nervously) through the Local Government interview process (again) and accepted a Customer Service position at Singleton Council… yipp yipp yeehar… no more working weekends or public holidays!

The ladies are astonished that Mumma is being so tough this weekend though… officially the rubbish that they used to get away with because I was only with them every second weekend (and exhausted and unable to put up a fight… I always gave in… while I worked they stayed with Mum) it can now STOP!!! I am being quite tough but if I’m going to survive with my sanity in tact, the rules are now enforceable… they don’t try half of the cheekyness with Mum as they do here with me. I think it’s that I’m on my own too. No back up of another adult. So as of now I’m toughening up on discipline and acceptable behaviour. Mind you it’s 10.30 pm and the little toads were just jumping up and down on my bed. They aren’t completely under control yet obviously… I wanted to sleep in this morning… 8 am was all I got.

Anyway that means more time to berl-loggy blog!

I beg your pardon? You don’t believe me? We shall see… shall we?

Bestest ever news! I am officially going to Kim Archer’s amazing retreat in November… that cannot come quick enough for me and I will no doubt be blabbering more about it as it gets closer. I went to the Skrapkatz weekend retreat last month and this year made myself a new handbag and managed to finish about 7 layouts … A new record ’cause normally I take a car load of stuff and all I do is gasbag and eat …

speaking of cars… I have a new (for me) car. I will take photos of it tomorrow. I have never loved a car like this… I did love my celica from my young and free days but my new wagon is the most perfect for us! I even bought personalised number plates. Because Jennifer Lopez is J-Lo I am L-Mo… like ELMO – gettit ??? Yeah not many do understand it lol.

and I HAD every intention of entering the Kaisercraft Dt call… so I started this… of course the deadline came and went before I finished the album… so here it is finally done. The best news is that (great mate and unofficial sister) Rona was awarded a position on the Kaisercraft DT… I have been telling her for ages that she would be a shoe-in for DT’s and mags… now she believes me… I think … I do love Kaisercraft’s mini albums and have so much of their mdf in my stash… Did you know there are flamingos on their new paper? … for what it’s worth I reckon flamingoes will be the new deer in scrapping lol
