A Note Card Party - sponsored by Vee at A Haven for Vee

It's been a long time since I have been involved in one of these parties. I love them they are a great way of finding and meeting new and interesting people out there in blogland. This one is a nice easy one to get me back into the swing of things and to take a look at some of the other partygoers wonderful photos. Here are the rules :-

1. Let's try not to make too many rules... ☺
2. Search for four photographs on your own blog that would make a nice set of note cards. They must have appeared on your blog by the time you link up.
3. Write your post.
4. Link directly to your post below.
5. Visit ten or so others (at least) and comment. Knowing that new visitors are viewing and commenting is part of the fun. (Permission granted to look and not comment at blogs practicing safe commenting. All those word verifications get very tiring when trying to visit a lot of blogs.)
6. Have fun!
< Here are my photos I chose a shabby chic theme -

I love these photos they remind me of my craft room which I dearly miss having, it was my space in a house full of boys!!!!!! One day it will be back................

Is there anybody still out there?

Well another year has pasted since I posted on this blog, man that year went fast! I have been keeping busy that's for sure the last couple of years has been full of ups and downs. Here are some of the high and low lights -

  • We now have a wonderful relaxing swimming pool great for the hot summers here in Queensland.

  • Kitchen reno while it still has some finishing touches to be done it has been up and running for a while now.

  • Business we have not had the best time of it and it doesn't seem to be getting any better at the moment the building industry is still very slow.

  • All three of my boys are now in high school the oldest has now had his L plates for almost a year which is a bit scary but he is doing well.

  • We also put a new roof over our BBQ area.

  • Paul and I went on a cruise for my 40th birthday last year it was only a short 3 night one just long enough for me to realise I want more.

  • I traveled to Phuket in April 2011 with a group of friends, bit of a culture shock for me but totally enjoyed myself.

  • I had a bit of a health scare in August ended up having to have major surgery and 6 weeks recovery but all is good now.

  • And I'm sure you all would of heard about all the flooding we have been having in Queensland and NSW, Paul's 93 year old Grandfather's house went under in the 2011 Brisbane River Flood it was a mess, it is all good now just like a brand new house.

I think that's about it, I will show photos later of the renos, today I have been too busy trying to remember how to use this blog, I have given it a bit of a makeover and I have now even included a photo of myself which is a small miracle as I'm a bit camera shy nowadays as I'm sure many of you are. Now I haven't totally dropped out of blogland the past year I have been keeping up with all my favourite blogs I just haven't been leaving any comments, just lurking in the background, hopefully I will have time soon to pop in for a visit to you all and say hi.

So bye for now
