It all started with 1927

The band, not the year.
On the 28 September 1990 I went to a concert in Hobart with a friend, and a group of others who are not important right here. Her brother, the spunk (yes I used one of those charming 80’s phrases) was our chauffeur.
I had stayed the weekend with her, and that was all it took, to be hooked on him.

Days, or was it weeks, – cant remember and don’t need to – my dad showed him the shotgun behind his office door as we went on our first date.

And on this day, October 1st 1994 we got married. I was a mere 21.

Eighteen years of roller coaster (some fun, some not so much) and 3 wonderful kids later we are still as much in love as ever. If not more.

Happy Anniversary to my gorgeous husband, thank you for being there and putting up with me.
Here’s hoping for many more to come.

Happy Days 😀

Running, beads and pink pajamas.

Ok, never mind the pink pajamas. That was just a throw in. but I did buy some – totally gorgeous!!

My sister arrives tomorrow afternoon/evening for at least the 4 days of Easter, maybe a few days longer.  Three kids (1, 5 & 9) + partner in tow with the car loaded full of all the necessary items we feel are needed for a weekend away.
I make and blog my Hot Cross Good Friday and then will most likely have a break – unless I get the chance to post a quickie picture from my phone that is.

interesting but pointless picture just coz I can.

My week in a nutshell:

– One son at camp made for a slightly quieter house – the other two made up for it though.

– I tidied my bead desk! (yay, now I can see it, for a short time anyway) and have started on some more bits and pieces.  As I type this, I am taking a break from the beads.  I have trouble with a certain application and I have to step away sometimes.

– Running…. eeek!  Those of you that read this post, might think that I am now fit and toned and my worrying is useless.  Hahaha. ~insert much guffawing on my part here~ Well, since I made that post I think I have been back, maybe, twice.  I have been so busy and really haven’t made an effort to include this in my day.  Anyhoo, the Mother’s Day Classic is back.  It’s a fun run/walk on Mother’s Day for survivors  (and their family/friends and anyone else who wants to join in) of Breast Cancer.  Mum sent me the email and asked if I would like to bring the boys and join her this year.  Yes!  This will be blogged about in more detail later.  I am now accountable to you all having said this.

– I have two markets planned (aside from my usual one). One on the 15th and another the first week of May.  Hence the new makes.  I need to get some material out and make more bags.  I bought this awesome pink lacy bra with flowers on it that would make a gorgeous evening bag….hmm, we’ll go there another day maybe.

– Hubby is spending Easter with his parents and one sister – lucky boys (BIL and Dad) are going the races on Saturday night.  Speedway.

– My parents celebrated their 46th wedding anniversary.

– my nails are coming along nicely (really, you want to know this why???).  Since having polish on then I can see where they have grown.  Mind you, it’s only bare millimetres, but grow they have.  I can now tap fingers on the bench and make that cool sound.
Some things are awkward though – picking up beads and texting is getting weird, and the stuff I get underneath them… forever seem to be peeling tiny bits of fruit or veg skin off. Hmm.

– Don’t forget my sale on over at Marcato Designs (40% off atm). Come grab a bargain!

hope you’re all having a dandy day and keep smiling ,
if you’re not, ‘fake it til you make it’
