Random Ramblings

The kitchen tea party went off brilliantly despite a few...hiccups. I have thanked Annie x 1 000 000 for what she did to save the day. She was so nervous about public speaking especially to a bunch of strangers (all MY friends and family) but she really stepped up to the plate and organised and ran some games and I'm so glad she did. She's the best! I'm so proud of her and I hope one day i get to return the favour somehow.
It hasn't been the best week... I don't want to go into the negative details here but i'm now down a "best friend" and my maid of honour. Position Vacant? :P Nah, we're seriously not dealing with the practical side of how this impacts the bridal party situation just yet, it's too sore a point right now. Friendship-wise though, i think this is for the best. We're probably better off without eachother, unfortunately. We had some great times though, Clo & I. We're just too different now as adults and yeah i'm so not going into it here. Apart from that, it has been a tough week in other ways and I am soooo thankful for the support of Ben and close friends, namely Russ & Annie. They have been absolute angels and i love them soooooooOOOOoooo much and hope things get better soon.

OH, school holidays are nearly over. I've got 7 random relief days spread out over the term already booked at one of the local schools but apart from that nothing planned yet, work-wise. I reckon the first week or so will be pretty slow (what kind of teacher chucks a sickie on the first few days back after the holidays?) but it should pick up a little. I'm getting a tiny bit nervous as the end of the year draws close. I haven't got anything lined up for next year yet. It's getting closer!! Oh well, God will provide... one way or another.

In scrapping news, it's the ROCKtober Cybercrop at Scrap Therapy this weekend. I've already completed 3 of the 4 main challenges. I must admit I didn't put as much effort into them as I usually would. Firstly because I've resigned myself to the fact that I'm never going to be as good as the extremely talented girls on there and secondly cos my scrapping attention has been focussed on working on the Kitchen Tea Recipe & Scrapbook which I won't show you too much of until it's finished.... Maybe i'll give a sneak peak?
Anyway, hope you have a fantastic week! :)

mmmm never be as good as the ladies on Scrap Therapy - my do those words ring a bell - I believe I spoke them many moons ago - & - nope not as good as some - in my eyes - but instead I'm me and my scrapping is developing. You'll always be you but you can aspire to create a look on a page - though because you are you it will only be yours never anyone elses - your touch makes it yours.

Never say Never and the Recipe book is looking good.
