Time Fly's

Wow where have the last few weeks gone?

I have been SO enjoying myself with a lot less to do when I get home from work everyday - I have even read three books - that is just unheard of!
The scrap room looked like this:


And now it looks like this:

 It is so nice to finally have a bigger bed room although this is just a stop over for us as our existing kitchen will eventually become our bedroom!
Next week we have the builder coming to put a wardrobe in this room (which will become Abby's at some stage) and then hopefully in about 3 weeks we start on the windows - YAY.
And who would have thought that paying a $5K bill would be exciting - but paying for the new bathroom bits and bobs was very exciting - it finally feels like we will get a lovely new bathroom before Christmas and all going well - a lovely new Kitchen too!  Lots to do in 3 months!
Although getting a teenage son to choose a new duvet cover, curtains, wallpaper, paint and lights is NO easy task.  Today I finally got him to choose the light for his room, and we got a bargain (very NOT like us) it was at Patemans down from $269.00 to just $69.00!

Righto so the crop saw me totally enjoying myself - it was SOOOOOOO good to sit and pretend to do lol - i got one card made and I forgot to take a photo before I gave it away duh but thanks Tania because I really enjoyed it, and once our renovations are done - I will be scrappin to catch up on the last 4 years of not doing very much at all!
Talking of cropping - did you all see that Tania has opened registration for Raincliff Camp 2011 - I am so looking forward to this crop it will be held the first weekend to April - so can you imagine the April fools jokes that will go on - as if some of the ladies need an excuse lol!
But last weekend Jo F came over and we had a mission to make some baby cards as I needed 3 right now and still a couple more babies to be born over the next fortnight!  So I made 3 of the same here is a photo:


Today we have been cleaning out the garage and getting the boat ready to sell - it's all go here I tell you!
 And we had a "char grilled" BBQ for tea - summer sure feels like it is here today.

I also will give you all a laugh.  I got a second hand laptop and it arrived on the courier on Friday so i decided to load up the KNK on it - but to do that I needed sound to watch the video on how to do it - seems like forever since i did it last.
I spent about 1 hour looking for the installation disk, then another 3.5 hours trying to get sound, I finally gave up and went to bed.  This morning Nigel's brother Kyle rang to try and talk me through a few things and after about 5 mins he asked it it had a little wheel on the side of the computer - and low and behold it did and it controlled the sound - DUH so after all of that if I had "turned" the sound up the old fashioned way I would have saved about 4 hours of work- and I thought I was computer literate!

Well long story from me lol, now I am off to load the KNK on the laptop - that is if I can get it off one teenage daughter!

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

Cheers

Rachel

at least you managed to turn the laptop on. That would have been even more embarrassing but apparently its one of the top help desk calls....my computer doesn't work. :-)
I love the mirror in your room - I'm guessing that's one you had when the room was a scraproom?
