Thank you


To my brothers and wider family, I've come to appreciate them and their values in the past few days more than ever.

Things have been a bit difficult here, without going into details, settling Geoff's Mum's estate has been an unpleasant and somewhat rushed affair. My tip is get your parents to write down very specific items they wish to go to certain family members, because just splitting everything three ways in a general unspecified way does not work...

Ok, have spent all my last few posts being sad and stressed, need good, happy news. This week, we will sign the contract for our new house (ok added layer of stress but good stress), and everyone is healthy at the moment. yay.

And I have been doing a bit of digi scrapping because facing my paper supplies is overwhelming me and I am feeling zero joy from that. But a enjoying The Lilypad currently. Each digi store seems to me to follow a certain scrapping style and The Lilypad is just me plus also extending me. And I will admit I love the instant gratification factor of outlaying just a couple of dollars to receive immediately lots of, well, just stuff. Retail therapy. All good.


Lastly a little Lo I threw together to show some of my fav photos of Henry when Meaghan asked him to pose for her for an art project. he is supposed to look like he is enjoying himself...


Will be back tomorrow with a wrap up of my 10000 steps for 7 days.

Have a great day. xx

A friend of mine's Grandmother used to put a sticker underneath the item with the name of who it was to go to (in the event she would one day die).He said he was always walking around turning things over on the sly to see who they were going to. I bet he changed a few of the stickers around too! :)

Karen, so sorry you had trouble with the estate settlement - an unpleasant affair I'm sure.
I love the layout of Henry, such a gorgeous photo of him too!
