Rob.... still doing stupid things...

OK, We all say and do stuff that we think to ourselves....'did I say that out loud?' but
Rob seems to do it more than most. Just silly things when he doesn't think things through and relies on me to sort it allllll out!
Anyway Thursday night,we had a storm and as usual a blackout.
It just has to look like rain in the blue mountains and we seem to get blackouts!
When this happens I always unplug everything to ensure no surge issues during the night. Well i did this and unplugged everything including the PC.
4am the next morning, i get woken up by a confused looking Rob saying...'Tara the F##@**ing computer wont work!! get up and fix it please'
I said to him 'Rob i unplugged it because of the storm. just plug in the power board and the PC will come on.' and then went back to sleep.
10 Min's later, Rob comes storming in not happy i may add( apparently he had bills to pay online??!!) and said 'I've plugged in the damn power board and all i can get to work is the light?' 'get up and fix it!'
So i got up stumbled to the craft room, with no glasses on mind you, and proceeded to check out what the problem was.
And what should my eyes see???? Rob in his wisdom had plugged the power board in to the power board!!! So the damn thing was plugged into its self!! Man I was Pissed! then i had to laugh because if you know Rob that is such a 'Rob' thing to do!!!

Christmas is getting closer...

Is it just me but does Xmas seem to get closer between holidays that it use to? Is it the fact that in September Xmas decoration start going up in shopping centres and the really annoying Xmas songs start playing or is it just that as we get older we, unlike kids ,are not looking forward to Xmas as much as when we were 6 or 7? I suppose when you are 7 like Zoe 28 days to Xmas seems for forever, while i am running around like mad thinking 'shit! what am i going to buy Rob...oh god !i still have not sent the cards out to the UK yet....' There is always 101 things to go as an adult for Xmas along with your normal routine.

But while is is all going on around me, sometimes i forget the little things i am going to miss this Xmas.
It was Zoe yesterday that made me realize that all this running around, there is one important huge Void this year in our Xmas plans....Poppy.

Poppy passed away this year very suddenly and yes, I miss him every day, but it was Zoe who said just out of the blue, 'Mum? how are we going to get Poppy's Xmas pressy to heaven?'

So how do explain to a 7 yr old that poppy can't have pressys? I just said that santa will sort it all out for us.

But this little comment made me realize just how much I will miss him at the Xmas table this year.

Busy few days

I have been getting my creative hat on these past few days. I want to apply for the design team with pink cat studio but need to give several cards and other stuff. i have been busy making cards but none quite seem good enough. i will pop a few for you to see.
The other big task has been making Halloween books for everyone who came to our party. I managed to now get 4 done but still have a few to do. I have posted a few pics of them. I hope everyone likes them.

Halloween mini book

Well, I have just finished my first mini book for halloween. I thought i would make a few for everyone who came to my halloween party. It was hard to get supplies in oz but thanks to fiskars they sent me some samples of the halloween ranges they do not sell over here.
And below is the finished result.
I used laminate for the clear pages. it was cheaper that acrylic!!
