Tyla is feeling much better now - after a new prescription for the right anti-biotics, she is almost back to her normal self. And sleeping better too. She is at kindy today - last day for the term - had to send her in thongs cos her sandals don't fit anymore and it is too warm for sneakers. And, one of the joys of living in a small country town - can't get shoes here anywhere for her!! Not happy - we won't be going anywhere to do shopping in the near future so will have to see if I can find some online for her. And that is difficult trying to get the right sizes.
I have been trying to get paper for my printer - you would think that was an easy task, but NO...................I have an Epson Printer so stick to Epson inks and papers and am happy with the results. Nowhere in town keeps the inks, but I can order them thru the Post Office. And have always previously (where we used to live) bought the paper from the PO too. So phoned them to order some, and they can't get it anymore!! For some strange reason it has been removed from their stocklists! I have to ask Why?? Why sell the inks if the paper is unavailable? There is one other place in town who may stock it, so phoned them, and no!! Not happy cos I was completely out and didn't realise it would be so difficult to replace. So I spent about 2 hours trawling the internet to find somewhere that didn't charge an arm and leg for postage. Finally found a place "AIM Digital Imaging". Their prices are great and the postage wasn't too OTP. I ordered a full set of inks and 3 packs of paper, and even including the postage and insurance, it worked out cheaper than I have paid before. And, I ordered it Sunday and it arrived yesterday.......that is awesome for where we live. So, I would recommend having a look at this site......I am happy!
Oops - Halle has just demolished the Duplo Block Castle Tyla and I built yesterday - I better rebuild it before she gets home from Kindy, or she will be very cross!!
Awful weather here today - foul North winds - started about 4am, I know this cos that's when my nose started running and my eyes started itching! Out with the Claratyne!
I have another page completed for my current project..................this is our family dog when I was a kid.........Lucky - a little dog with a big personality. He ruled our house and our street!! I really had to hunt to find any decent photos of him - didn't take a lot of pics back then.
So, here he is:
Please excuse the bad scanning....I'm not very good at stitching the scanned images, so there is a slight shadow and a bit missing off the bottom RHS. My scanner doesn't do full 12" so is missing about 1/2 cm all the way around the LO.
Thanks for dropping by, and please leave a message!!

We did OK with our Scrapping tho - Tyla got a first place for her Kindy Mini Olympics LO and in the 2 categories I entered - Children - I got 1st, 2nd and 3rd - and Celebrations - 1st and 2nd. So we scooped the pool............hehe!! Doesn't mean much to Tyla but I am very proud! Funny tho - the pages I thought were the best, weren't the ones that won. Have no idea who judged them. So Tyla won $2 and for my efforts I won a grand total of..................................$3!! I'll try not to spend it all at once!ROFL!! And I've had a few ideas for trying to start some kind of business up here with scrapping. Will let you all know what, if I go ahead with it.
Will be taking Tyla back to the Doctor tomorrow - she has just woken up with a temperature over 38 and tummy ache. She asked for the fan to be put in her room, so that is now hopefully helping to keep her temp down.
Finally finished sorting thru all the Arno Bay New Years Day stuff that I still had - I have been the secretary for the last 3 1/2 years - and sent that back to Arno with Pete's brother. Now I officially have nothing to do with it! Mmm, what to do New Years Day 2009 now? I know - I'll probably still be working on Mum's birthday present. LOL!
Anyone heading to Ceduna for Oyster Fest on the October Long Weekend?
Hope everybody had a good weekend and life is treating you fairly.
Hugs to all.

Flip-up's page 2 - space underneath the right hand flip for extra photos. Still need to add more ribbon when the photos are added. Pull tab on the left.
You can see why it has taken me so long!
We have our local show tomorrow. Tyla is really looking forward to it - wants to see all the farm animals. She entered some things in the craft section - stuff through Kindy and also some scrapbooking. I entered some LO's too. Only 4 categories in the Scrapbooking Section, and only 2 of them were relevant to me. So, 12 LO's in 2 categories! LOL - gotta show off my work somehow! Will let you know how we go!
Thanks for dropping by, and would really love to know what you think of this page.

Had our Netball Wind-up on Friday night. Was a good night. Pete and the girls came too, but they left about 10:30 - I stayed and got a lift home with a friend. Had a few drinks - first time since before I was pregnant with Halle! So didn't need too many to be feeling light-headed! LOL! They ran out of Scotch about 11:30 - probably a good thing or I would have been worse for wear the next day. Did lots of dancing and really enjoyed myself.
Had a bit of a sleep-in Saturday morning - about 9:30 probably, after getting home about 2am and getting up to Tyla 3 times during the night. She's having nightmares all the time lately, not sure what to do about it. Any advice?? Had a very slow and lazy morning then had to go to work (Cos I didn't do it Friday night). Pete cooked tea and I spent most of Saturday night on the floor in the lounge room sorting thru photos. Got all of mum's photos sorted into groups, so am making progress.
Slept-in again today - 9ish, I guess. Up with Tyla again 3 or 4 times. Really worrying me, have tried to rule things out that might be causing it, but nothing seems to make any difference. Hopefully she will get past this stage quickly. All she wanted to do this weekend was go on "An Adventure" - she wanted to take us all for a walk around town and have a picnic somewhere - and the weather has just been to disgusting to do it. Spent a lot of time scanning photos and should be doing some scrapping, but can't find the urge just now.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend and all those playing sport had fun.

Mmmm, what's been happening? Hafta find my diary and look back so I remember.
Lots of lovely talented people!
Saturday, I had to work (Cos I didn't do it Friday night), then Umpired the D Grade Grand Final Netball match. I usually do A Grade - was very difficult doing this grade, but had fun and it was a good game. The outcome was as expected, but the runners-up played really well and didn't lose by as much as they thought they would. The Footy was good - Wirrulla won the A & B Grades, breaking a 24 year drought.
Then we jumped in the Car and drove to Ceduna for a couple of days. Father's Day on the Sunday, so thought we would surprise my Dad. Was dark when we got there (2 hour drive), so we parked around the corner and snuck in the front door. He was asleep on the lounge, and was very surprised to see us! Made him very happy, so glad we went. Mum was very pleased to see us too. Peter took Monday off work, so didn't have to rush home on Sunday.
Did some shopping where Mum works - hit the sale rack! LOL! Really need new clothes cos my pre-Halle clothes are too small (Think they musta shrunk when we moved! ROFL)!! I've lost lots of pregnancy blubber but not enough to get back into my clothes yet!! (Insert grumpy face here)! Anyway, got myself 3 new pairs of jeans, a new shirt and 2 pairs of jeans for Pete, all for the huge total of $79!! And they are nice jeans too - gotta be happy with that!
AND, managed to get all of mum's photos (OMG)! Yep all of them. 4 shoeboxes and a suitcase full. Have sorted thru the shoeboxes and put them into groups according to people. Have told Mum that I am going to sort them all and scan them! And I will - just not immediately! LOL! So, have found lots more for Mum's album and can really get down to serious scrapping with it now. So, here's a few very old photos! No editing yet, just scanned and uploaded. Gotta love the old polaroids. They have held their colour quite well really.
Circa 1972. This one is probably about 1978.And me in my Little Ath's Gear! No laughing!! ROFL! What's with the hair???? About 1980.Hehe, hope that has given you all a good laugh!
Went to Camera Club Meeting on Tuesday. Got a second with this Pic:
Took Halle to the Doctors yesterday for her 1 year vaccinations. OMG, she was distraught. Much more than Tyla was when she got hers. 10 minutes later she was still heaving and crying - was like she was asking me why I let that man hurt her? I felt awful! She had very sore legs all last night and today too. And she is teething again, so lots of dribble and runny nose.
