It is 10 days since my last post and it has been a blur. So much happens in a day or even an hour. Some hours are loaded with things like taking washing out of the machine, getting a new load in, pegging clothes on the line, making the bed, washing the dishes, walking on my treadmill and jobs like that and then another hour might be taken up playing a game on my iPad or reading emails and checking out blogs but there never seems to be enough hours in the day no matter what I am doing.

I have not done any crafty stuff and to be honest I am finding it hard to get motivated enough to start a new layout. I decide to make a start but as soon as I walk into my scrap room I loose interest and suddenly find something that has to be done this minute or the world will come to an end.

I have had Mum staying with me for a couple of nights and three of my sisters that live elsewhere have been in town for Friday and Saturday so I have had a great time catching up with all of them. One of my sisters won a stake into the Texas Poker tournament that was held at the Casino on Saturday afternoon along with 2 nights accommodation at the Stamford. Unfortunately she did not win the tournament but had a good time playing. We all had dinner together at the Casino last night and a couple of sisters and Mum came with us to Legends Rock n Roll Club on Friday night

I went to my Photoshop course on Wednesday and felt completely overwhelmed. I could not log into the TAFE system and was behind the 8 ball for the whole lecture. Very frustrating. When I got home I printed the notes out and worked my way through them so didn't feel so bad after that. I am the oldest person in the class by about 40 years and sometimes I feel like a bit of a dinosaur. Then I just remind myself why I am doing the course and I feel OK again.

Cindy took Charli to Narnu Farm on Hindmarsh Island last weekend. She got to ride a pony, milk a cow and feed lots of farm animals. She loved it.

Off to start another week now.

Till next time

Oh dear what has happened to my life. I haven't got time to scratch myself.

I bought an iPad about a week or so ago and I have spent sooo much time playing with it. I have got 5 scrabble games going with my sisters not to mention the other solo games that are on it. Love Sudoko.

Charli loves it and I have got quite a few games on it for her.

That aside, I have been busy with other things as well. We have spent some time with Charli at her swimming lesson and then she spent the night with us on Monday, woke us up at 6:15am Tuesday, took her to Pianorama (piano lessons) and then bike riding to the park in the afternoon. Tuesday night we went to the Adelaide Rock n Roll club but I was so tired we came home early.

Wednesday I spent the morning at the hairdressers, went for a bit of a wispy look.

Whoops, I've got my crooked mouth on here. Self portraits are always hard.

I started my new TAFE course Wednesday evening. I am doing the advanced Photoshop course that follows on from the course I did last year.

Today I forgot to go for a 2 hour pamper pack that Cindy gave me, luckily when I rang them they agreed to let me re-schedule. Very lucky. I must remember to check my diary every day!!!! Ray & I went into the city this morning and had lunch with Cindy.

When I got home I fiddled around with the new camera I bought this morning. It is a Panasonic DMC-TZ20, I stuck with a compact camera because I want to take it with me when I go overseas later this year. I have got a busy travel schedule this year. Kangaroo Island in March, United Kingdom and Europe mid June to mid August and Vietnam in October. I am going to be away for about 3 months in total so my camera will get plenty of use.

Haven't had time to do any crafty stuff.

This is the layout I did for the challenge at My Creative Sketches. I have randomly stamped the white background with Kaisercrafts buble wrap stamp and heat embossed with UTEE then given it a light spray with Glimmermist. The photo was taken at the fundraiser Ray, Sharyn and I organise most New Years Eve's at Deaf CanDo. This one was from 2010. Hard to believe so much has happened since this photo and yet it seems like just yesterday.

Thanks for looking
Just a quick post to show you the great give away going on here. You can win this great prize. Why not check it out.

Will be back soon with a new post
Till then
