Where has the time gone???

I think too much has happened to catch up all in one go, the main points
-we had a lovely Christmas, Vicki, Robert, David and Kara were all home together for the first time in ages. Then..................
-Vicki & Thomas went sailing around the WhitSunday Islands
-RJ flew to Japan sking
-Kara went to Mildura to visit friends
& David flew back to Perth where he now lives.

We had a very quiet New Year, pottered in the garden, had friends from Queensland visit (parked their van out in the paddock and stayed for 12 days) many hours catching up laughing and learning how to play Mahjong... great fun and I now have my own set. My brother in law made my sticks in beautiful redgum so very flash indeed.
Mum was looking after my daughter's dog tripped  and fell breaking her wrist, many hours were spent in the hospital, mum home with my sister- arm in plaster and totally miserable.  Go to pick up my brother, he has tripped on the lead and sprained his wrist- he had his arm strapped (sprained)  he is now living with us.  No more dogs at Williams street.....
Everyone is now home from holidays, mums is still at Lyn's her arm is much improved although she is still in plaster. Doug is back to his old self and will stay here with us until mum is well enough to care for him.
That is about all for now - Oh!! Bell street is progressiong at a rapid pace - I will post some new pics soon.
Unfortunately I have not had time to do any scrapping but the Christmas pics need some attention and I would love to get to a class with Kathie over at ScraphappyKats.

June winner

Here is my LO for Scraphappykat's June paper pack competition, this photo is very special to me as it shows my dear Aunt & Uncle. Aunt has since passed away.
I was lucky enough to be an equal winner, many thanks to Kathie and her DT team.

Catching up!!

I have been busy catching up on a couple of LO's and the ATC for July.  The LO of Egypt is for the sketch challenge over at Scraphappykats.

ATC for July from ScrappyhappyKat's

My spin on Lexie's class from Scraphappykats
I really enjoyed this sketch challenge, it brought back memories of our most amazing trip- We were in Cairo sitting in the shade of the Great Pyramids when this young woman waved madly at us.  You would not believe it - it was a girl from Euroa, she had been living in London and had taken a short break in Egypt with her fiance Kelvin,  before returning home to Australia.

Well under way

The house renovation has moved along very quickly - walls have been taken out, moved and put back in...Sparky comes Thursday the 10th - been quite a buisness to get one I can tell you. Plumber is sorted, the polished boards and carpet quotes are in, another builder comes on Sat to give his quote. Hopefully it will be at lock up stage within 6 weeks.
Checking out kitchens on ebay .. just missed a ripper for $1.00 now isn't that ridiculous included sink, dishwasher, cooker and cook top etc all in a beautiful Tasmanian oak. Buggar!!
Check out the photo's below to see our progress.
