Thank goodness for the Remember Me button

Cos I just got to my blog and couldn’t remember my password… eeek!

but it just directed me anyway lol

Now the ever fabulous Rachel Greig has tagged me ()This post was in drafts so I’ve just added to it lol) so before I start blathering here goes…

Here are the rules which you must abide by if you are tagged:
1.Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3. I think by now everyone has done this so I’m not tagging

So here goes…. weird and random stuff…

1. I talked, dreamt, breathed and lived for horses from the age of 7 to 35. Then, just like that, I quit. Sometimes I wander out to say hello to our mob of 9 whoops 10 but until the girls are old enough to ride proper … I will enjoy the hiatus… I can so see me doing the obsessed Pony Club Mother routine in a few years…. (yelling “HEELS DOWN!!! In my sleep) LOL

2. I’m pretty desperate for a Ducati road bike. They cost about $20,000 and they don’t make them with twin side-cars lol so I will just have to wait until the girls have got their own car/license and I become the funkiest grey nomad you’ve ever seen. It will take me that long to be able to afford one. My company car used to be a motorbike.

3. I think about winning the Lottery every day. I buy lots of tickets (my only gambling) and yes every day I think about what it would be like to win. (maybe this isn’t so random and weird)

4. I hate fruit and meat together… especially apricot chicken… it’s wrong. Pork chops and apple sauce… wrong! I also can’t stand to eat lamb… it leaves a nang nang feeling on the roof of my mouth. Beef and chicken only… seafood in tiny amounts.

5. I am obsessed with cleaning my ears with ear buds, I can’t walk past a cotton bud without sticking it in my ear… even at friends places, all I want to do is auralise their buds.

6. I have two green thumbs. Love plants and trees, can grow anything. Was more devistated about having two of my pot plants stolen than my car stereo. Remember you lot… me going on and on and on about the twisted ficus’ lol.

and finally number

7. I went recently with my mate Rona to a local handbag sewing class with Monica Poole and I made a handbag, using my 20 year old Husqvarna sewing machine. The other ladies did audibly scoff at my trusty brown and orange antique. The handbag is gorgeous and I’m happy with the job husky did. Making some more soon.

Anyway Canberra was fantastic, my best mate Jason came with us and I drove his car (he recently broke his arm). We had a small accident when a freaky tree branch fell out of the sky in front of us and damaged Jase’s car a bit. We are all fine just pissed off at the universe. Since then I have had a flat tyre (couldn’t get the spare out and Rona had to rescue us… thanks Rona) and then burst a radiator hose (Once again Rona saved me, her hubby Graham saved the day and changed the hose for me) so UNIVERSE THAT’S 3 NOW … off you go!

I had the pleasure of meeting some lovely photographers in Bungendore, Jinky Art’s Barb is such a happy sweet lady, the ladies have been offered a free photo shoot in the new year to help along Sally’s portfolio… that was a thrill! The ladies behaved beautifully and I CANNOT!!!! wait for the photos. Seriously I planned the Canberra weekend for ages and I was really apprehensive about how they would cope with 30 women with huge cameras all wanting them to look this way etc… well I needn’t have worried.. the ladies were such professionals and it helped that the workshop participants were all really professional and child photogs so a few girls took a ‘tired’ Charlotte off by herself for a bit and the shots they got were mind blowing… who’d have thought my tomboy was such a model? I took along their whole wardrobe, a bubble making machine, 3 umbrellas etc etc you can imagine.

Anyway just this past Saturday Rona and I headed to Penrith for some fabric and scrap shopping. Whoooo hoooo spent far too much money… hey it’s made round to go ’round lol We went to Fred the Needle, Spotlight and Lincraft, missed the Superstore this time (didn’t need any stickers lol) but then we found a new obsession…. Scraploot. Gorgeous Sue welcomed us into the shop and there were about 10 ladies madly scrapping away, I think the DT were there. But the shop is unreal and we had a ball, like being let loose in the candy store. Honestly check out Scraploot, they have a great online store and the best service in the world!!!

So another work week in front of me, which by the way I’d better get my bum into gear.

Thanks for visiting me… photos next time

Perspective returns!

17 06 2007

OK! well you know how I was blogging that I was the happiest girl in the world a few weeks ago???… Well, never fear, I still am truely happy, just needed to learn a universe/life lesson and was finding it soooooo frustrating… (Hence the last blog entry… and yes I am already looking back and laughing at it) however, I got a message (whether you believe that sort of thing or not) from my step-Nana George who died a few years ago. She gave me some options…

now before you think Ive totally flipped… when I think of Nana George I think of certain things…

playing like a child around her flat at Lalor Park,
the way she never took any shit from anyone…
the fact that she out’lived 6 husbands… YES!!! 6 HUSBANDS!!! was still planning a wedding and getting married well into her 60’s,
and a woman who loved with abandon… like love was going out of fashion, and she had to get all that love out…
now I’m not talking love in the biblical sense… I’m talking LOVE L.O.V.E. forsaking all others, and loving someone for all their being and doing.
Well I thought of her and then my probelm was solved. After thinking of her I had a few options pop into my head, and I saw in my mind, her tilting her head to one side and smiling that cheeky grin… “Lib, you’re a long time gone, go out, live life” So…. I found a solution to my problem and I am grateful and humble to have met such a woman. God bless you and thank you Nana George.

Now here is a layout Ive just done for SM. I hope you like it… the birdcage stamp is a fave at the moment…


Im so excited to be getting some scrapping done and liking it… I hate using the MOJO word… its just not me… So instead Im back in the game! Speaking of which, the old people (Henceforth you shall remember them as my parents) and I stayed up last night till 1am to watch one of the best games of Rugby Ive seen (Excluding the game of games during the World Cup in ’03 where we pantsed the Kiwis – I was THERE to see it and my hero Joe Roff!!) anyway back to last night… Australia v South Africa.. we lost but George Gregan was back (YES!) and the keg on legs Dunning had a pearler of a game. Was fun and we had a great night cheering and yelling at the telly.

Im listening to the soundtrack of Saturday Night Fever right now and bouncing around in my chair… Im sure its not a pretty sight, but… I’m taking your advice Nana.

On that note.. ah ah ah ah Stayin Alive! Stayin Alive!
