Fabulous news!

Been very busy- working a lot- due to that nasty bug going around so many people have been sick. As well as the dreaded audits coming up LOL, panic!!!

I’ve got lots of good news!

Knee -woohoooooo!!!! Workinsurance is paying for the operation (Arthroscopic meniscetomy- just minor keyhole surgery). I am sooooooooooo relieved, no long waiting list!!! Oh just got a letter it’s this month on the 21st!!! Woohooo!!! I’ll go home the same day and need to rest for a couple of days. Perfect it’s weekend and Rainer can be my slave *laughs*.

Chris found his first job ever!!! He’s chuffed and so am I!!! Like almost every other teenager in Waiuku, he’s working at the local supermarket on saturdays.
Doesn’t he look cute in his wee uniform? If looks could kill eh;p

Lucky me won a little present from Hannah’s Pay it Forward draw thanks Hannah *big hug* – oh cannot wait- I so adore surprises!!! I really love that concept, it’s along the line of RAK’s ( random acts of kindness ). Which incidentally did you know it’s the National RAK day today? Unfortunately I did not either until Rainer told me today- the things that man finds out while driving home and listening to the radio.. uncanny. So a bit late for that event but I still would like to Rak and of course PIF some people. I’ll draw 3 names from posts to receive a little PIF pressie and 3 names to get a little Rak.

Must be my lucky week I also won the draw over at NZ Dares  – use your scraps challenge. Thank you gals for such a wonderful challenge and Cherry Arte papers, yum yum! I’ve had so much fun doing this and was amazed to see how many beautiful scraps I have. Sparked off a lot of new project ideas too! The partly hidden journaling tag – the small photos- talks about all those little familiar or unexpected things that make my life so rich.

And as if this isn’t enough wonderful news the biggest for last!
Wohooo hooo hooooooooo!!! I’ve made it onto the Design Team of the recently opened NZ Scrapbook Mega store over at Wairau Park- Auckland! Woowsee I’m so thrilled and excited to be joining the talented gals Jo Kneller & Megan Renfree and 2 others on the design team! For those out of towners NZ Scrapbook has an online store as well as a blog to keep you updated.  Oh did I mention how excited I am to.. LOL
Here’s a LO I did as part of the DT entry. It’s about 5 things you might not know about me. I’m so in love with b/w and added colour in the moment.
