howdy

hi all
first off i would love to say a really big hi to marcy and kellie who rang lately long distance to chat and see if i was still alive lol. you two ladies are just so caring and i am blessed to have you as friends.

ok enough of the brown nosing and crap lol. life once again has been very busy. at this exact moment grace is running around the house trying to get her jobs done and pack her bags to go caving over the weekend. god help her. it is going to be so cold camping i dont pity her at all lol. she will have a ball but i think i will have to thaw her out when she gets back lol. she has grown so much in maturity since joining scouts and it has been a pleasure to watch. dont think it is all smooth sailing we still have the ocassional hiccup (such as cleaning her room and really not cleanning her room but hiding everything in the wardrobe) not a great day that one lol.

we had a bit of a scare with anthony yesterday. the poor bugger the day before had the day of school. anyway he managed to fall over and hit his head on some bricks and came up in a huge lump etc. i put ice on it and watched him carefully and he seemed fine. so yesterday he woke up and said he was great so i sent him off to school. the poor little bugger past out just after lunch and he said his eyes were playing up all day. the school tried to ring me but i left my mobile at home and spent the day in town running errands. it wasnt until i picked him up that i found out so off to outpatients i go. i was sure it had something to do with the lump on his head but they just put it down to a viral infection. i reckon when they have no freaking idea what is happening they just call it a viral infection. anyways i have kept him home now and will monitor him pretty closely.

today i am off to drop grace off at scouts, then i have a heap of photocopying to do and then i need to drop some papers off then i am home and home is where i will stay. i need to clean this place it is shocking at the mo. anyway now i have vented and spilt my guts i am off.

oh and thanks to everyone who has offered to make cards for grace i really really appreciate it. she is not fussy and any sort of cards will do. thankyou ladies you all rock.

cheers
marnie

Jamboree 2010

hi all
yep it has been a long time between posts. life seems to keep getting in the way lol. i hope everyone is well and not suffering too much in these cooler months. the boys have been constantly getting colds and flus and sore throats. i have had a couple of bouts of it but i think i am over the worse of it now (touch wood).

scouts has kept me extremely busy just at present but the holidays are drawing near so a break is not too far away. i absolutely love my time at scouts and each week we have a ball running around and playing and learning new things. yes we do learn stuff too lol.

grace is going to jamboree next year and needs to organise a fundraiser to help pay the costs associated. so as part of her fundraising she wants to sell handmade gifts and cards at the local market so here is the big question

CAN ANY OF YOU PLEASE SPARE A FEW HANDMADE CARDS OR GOODIES????? if you can leave a comment with your email in it i can get in touch with you to discuss postage etc. every little bit helps.

anyway my free time today is over and i hope to catch up and chat later. cya
