Project Life: Week 22

Yay for long weekends!  Toby and I have been enjoying having some relaxation time at home… reading books, watching movies and just generally hanging out.  I’ve been meaning to get into my scrap room and give it a good tidy up but so far all I’ve managed to do is fill up the gas bottle so that it will be warm when I eventually do it!

Here’s a look at this weeks pages:Full_1

My week started off with celebrating Miss Krystal’s 20th birthday!  I still can’t get over the idea that my little baby is now into the double decades!  Toby and I went over to Hamilton on Monday after work and took Krystal and Chris out for dinner and we had a great time catching up.  The celebrations didn’t end there because on Tuesday it was my sister’s birthday :)

Room 4 did a bit of celebrating on Tuesday as well as we had finally made it to 20 class points so we had pizza for lunch which the kids really loved.

Here’s a look at the start of my week:Left_1

This week Nina and I organised our classes for SENZ… and somehow it was much more enjoyable spending Nina’s money for her!  I’ve decided to do three classes at SENZ this year and I’m super looking forward to them.

I’ve also done another one of the Incredible Years course days… 4 down, 3 to go!  This time we worked with puppets which had lots of us out of our comfort zones but ‘Dina’ came home with me as another teacher from school wanted to borrow him. 

On Thursday night I had another teaching session with John and of course stayed to have dinner with him and Wendy which is always lovely.  This time Wendy did deep fried mozzarella for an entree which was absolutely divine!

Here’s a look at the second half of the week:Right_1

Toby and I finally made it down to the ‘canine supermarket’ at Barkers Park.  Toby was totally thrilled to be inside and kept looking at me as if to say…. ‘Hey Mumma, I’m inside the shop!’  We got him some treats which he’s already sampled and enjoyed along with some more soap for his next bath.

This morning I took Mikayla down to Pak’n’Save as she was working a shift for someone else.  We decided to go down a bit early so that we could do the groceries.  It’s certainly a good time to go because the shop was fairly quiet and there were no queues at the checkout!

I had a bit of a ‘play’ today after checking out Tim Holtz’ blog and here’s what I came up with for my piece of creativity:Creativity_1

I used the photo from his blog and coloured the girls dress and ribbon using Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.  Then I antiqued the photo with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.  Really like how it turned out. 

So that’s been my week… and hopefully almost definitely I’ll be in my scrap room tomorrow creating cleaning up!

Have a good week everyone xx
