Hard to believe that it;s almost March

Where have the last two months gone. Hard to believe tomorrow is the 1st of March. Then my birthdaybeing only 3 sleeps away. Tomorrow Sam and I are doing the lilydale lake 4km Run/walk again and are going to try and better our times of 40 plus minutes last year.

Been busy with school and kinder which I think is making time fly.

Health concerns for a few people in my family making me feel a little down. Then my health concerns so went to docotrs and I had some tests. One more test to rule out everything hopefully. Then I will be able to relax again and feel more like ME.

I felt my blog needed another design change. As they say a change is as good as a holiday.

Well then kids have both settled into Kinder and school. David took a little bit more time but is finally feeling good. He got a pupil of the week a couple of weeks ago for persisting with difficult tasks. Which was a good booster for his confidence.

My sister and her partner have been looking at houses. They were having a second look at one today.

Sam and I got tickets to LISA WILLIAMS which I am really looking forward to. She is a medium Clairvoyant you can visit her site here

I am doing a 52 question Challenge from Emily Falconbridge and am a little behind. Hve done three. But when she post the questions I answer them then and then use that answer on the tag. Really enjoying it.

Well Peter is taking the kids shopping today to get my birthday present which I think is very cool. The fact the kids asked him was cute.

Scrapped some layouts the other week to send off to be made into albums to give to people who lost everything in the Victorian Bushfires. I did a boy page and a girl page. Will upload them too.

Ok well I am going to try and do this more often. For my self like a diary.

Have a good week and take care of YOU. :-D
Will try and upload photos to computer today and take some of the tags have done so far.

Give the gift of memories

Sarah Gladman has started making 'Memory Gifts for the victims of the Victorian bushfires'.As scrappers, one of the most important things we deal with on a daily basis are memories. Family memories, memories of loved ones, memories of holidays, birthdays, christenings, bbq’s and days at the beach. These families in Victoria have got no tangible evidence of their lives left. No family photos. No happy snaps. You can replace a fridge, but you can’t replace years of momentos.In order to help out these family begin to put their lives back together I have started a scrapbooking plan - called “MEMORY GIFTS”.Quite simply, I ask each and every one of you who read this blog to donate a 12 x 12inch almost completed scrapbook LO to the “Memory Gifts” program. Each page will be sent to me. I will collect them and bind them, then hand them over to the head of Pastoral Care for the Victorian Catholic Education Office, Maria Kirkwood in Melbourne. It will not be just Catholic families benefiting, it will be anyone who needs it. The albums will then be distributed to the principals of the 4 schools that burned down, who will know exactly who to give them to.Each family devastated by fire will be (in time) given album pages to help them begin their memories again. Those families can then approach their own families for copies of photos to put into the albums, or simply start putting in fresh memories.If you think you can help, please leave me a comment and I will reply with my postal address so that you can send on your page. Any help you can give will be much appreciated.I plan to have these albums finished by the 20th of March - that gives us a month to get cracking and create as many pages as we can!Many thanks on the behalf of the Victorian families who have lost everything.Sares xFor more information please visit Sarah's blog :
