Hakuna Matata

I couldn't really think of any other title for the blog post hakuna matata it is-no worries, be happy; be thankful for what you have because there are always others who are so much worse off than yourself!

I have been sooo busy, I know I write this in almost every post and I'm starting to sound like a broken down record, but I really am!! This weather has been so gross! I finally scrapped a page yesterday and that's about as far as I got. All of a sudden Brad, Mishy and I found ourselves waking up on the lounge after a 2 hour sleep lol....well it was the day for it!!
Today however is another day: house-work, school-work, house-work, oh and did I mention school work?? lol Next week will be my final week of the temporary block. I am really going to miss that group of kids. I hope I have been able to make their last 4 weeks of the term interesting and special as they have done for me.
Other news....I am desperately waiting for the incubator to give birth!! Today is day 20 and I have been told that most of the time, incubated eggs come earlier...I will be soooo disappointed if they hatch while I am at school on Monday :( We have Pekin bantams and frizzle eggs in there and this is my first ever incubation attempt.
Below is the page I scrapped using an amazing kit available from scrapbookingfromscratch (click on the blinkie on the right-hand side of the blog). I am embarrassed to admit that I have so many unopened kits and product that I really really need to use them up before I buy any new product!! Oh....that's right, I already did at the scrapbookingfromscratch sale that ends today...25% off!!
Have a good one, whatever you are doing-Tash xxx

What a Weekend!

What a weekend....I had 90 school books to cover which in between marking and planning this weeks activities pretty well consumed my weekend. Thankgoodness I had Mum and Nan T here to help cover them!! We also had a visit from Val, the girls and kids on Sunday. We had a picnic lunch outise in the backyard and the weather was perfect for it!! The kids loved playing with the chooks and I wish they could have stayed are a few pics I took...

Thanks for Looking, Tash xxx

On this Monday...

I start my month block at Clarence Town P.S-I am so excited and exhausted at the same time lol...I spent Sunday at the school arranging the classroom how I'd like it for the 4 weeks...and I really hope the kids like it, there are things hanging everywhere and it looks so bright and inviting!! If only it was permanent....
Anyway, I know I'm already a slack blogger, but I may be even worse bc I'll be busy, busy!!
Have an awesome Monday everyone, whatever you are doing!

Scrap Day with the Girls!!

I had such an awesome day on Friday with Kate, Peta and Jaimy over for scrapping. I hadn't caught up with the girls in such a long time, let alone scrap-so it was such a pleasure to combine the two. And Peta, I'm so glad you still came after your drama filled morning with Sienna. Thanks chickie's! Here are the 3 pages I created...

Melbourne Retreat

I know, I'm slack! I have been sooooo busy though, lots of work which is great and lots of things happening around the house here-but as promised here are the retreat pages, finally!!

This page was the result of Sandie's class. Sandie, it was so nice to finally meet you IRL, you are such a sweetheart and I'm so glad I had the opportunity! xxx

These 2 pages were created as a result of Peta's class, loved loved it!! You are amazing chickie!! I still have to upload charm's class page I did, but I just have to add a photo first lol.
Thanks for looking xxx
