What a month & a half it has been. We got back from Adelaide & hit the ground running, with a house full of people (at one stage, 11 of us for 3 nights plus extras around the dinner table!!) but how great to have family & friends stay.
My job hunting is proving to be rather unsuccessful, although I did get a job & had it for a record breaking one hour....yes you read that right....one hour!! It, I discovered, really wasn't for me & rather than waste their time and mine trying to make it so, I quit. They said they were thankful for my honesty. This week I had an interview that I felt went well & I REALLY wanted the job, however, it was not meant to be. At least it gives me time for my craft, & to be the domestic goddess my husband enjoys.
It is going to be a busy year & already I feel it is slipping away. With about 6 weeks until our first grandchild is expected things are gearing up for a manic amount of excitement. I have to really focus over the next few days to get Baby Shower invites out, just hoping we will all fit into our home.
In the middle of the year I shall celebrate a milestone birthday.....yes but I am not going to say which. I organised my last milestone birthday party and have decided that I am not going to organise my own this time. That will be the job of my family & friends. Our sons partner has already got some ideas so I know at least the ball is rolling.
The next big thing, (if we can finally get travel insurance) is a planned trip to Europe with my mother-in-law & my sister-in-law. They are doing 70 days, while Shaun & I will do just a little less than 6 weeks. I will talk of this more once we get the insurance. The only company who seems willing to cover Shaun's pre-existing medical condition is only willing to insure us 6 months out from the trip. We cannot even book the trip til we have the insurance, so the tours and flights are now filling fast so hoping that we can still do what Patria & Pat are booked to do. Anyway, will keep you all posted.
I had a great day today. My parcel from the States arrived with my order from Shaun (my Christmas present. http://www.ohmycrafts.com/ Papers, embossing folders and the cricut catridges (4 for $80, when they are about $90 each here!) So check out their website for some great bargains even with the cost of delivery, with the AUS dollar so good it is a great time to buy. At 10am I headed over to Lovely Linda's where we made cards for a few challenges that we were entering. You will see the results of that above. It really is a great way to spend the day!
Well, I will keep you posted. Have a great weekend.....yes, it is almost the weekend again!
