An Apology, A Thank You, A Kangaroo and a Reveal

Interesting heading... especially the Kangaroo...... Hmmmmmm

Firstly an apology to the ladies who attended my class at Scraphappy Kat's last night and thank you to Kathie for stepping in for me at the very last minute. I am just so disappointed that I couldn't be there in the end. As they say circumstances completely beyond my control and definitely a case of me being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I am so counting my lucky stars this morning... I had an absolutely terrible fright last night. Was heading out up the Hume Highway for Kathie's, anyway never made it- compliments of a kangaroo which just appeared from nowhere in full flight right in front me on a road heavy with traffic due to people going away for the Melbourne Cup weekend. I had nowhere to go - B double in the right lane, kangaroo in front of me - which just seemed to be everywhere I looked and someone right up my clacker - yep of all the times to have someone tailgatting you. I'm thinking - well I won't type the 'ladette' version here, but the 'lady' version went along the lines of 'Whoopsy... this is going to be expensive'.... With no other options, hit the brakes, braced myself and we collided. Hit it fair and square in the middle of my front bumper at about 80km's, roo went up onto the bonnet and then ended up in front of me again and then it ended up underneath with me going over the top of it and it flying out the rear of my car. Luckily, No other vehicles were affected but geez there was carnage going on behind me were cars and trucks all over the place.

I've managed to pull the car up in the emergency lane and by this time I have started to go into shock and I am a blubbering mess on the side of the road. The kangaroo is in a very bad way but is still alive a few metres back from where I have pulled up. I am tooo distraught to even get out the car to assess the damage to my car. I'm only 20 minutes from home so I ring DH and he comes out to assist me - no one else has stopped

Miraculously the front of the car has come through relatively unscathed. There is some damage underneath which we will have to access today and I am going to need a wheel alignment for sure. In the end we had to call the police to come out and assist the kangaroo who was suffering in a bad way

I am feeling better this morning though I have a sore back and neck. I'm not complaining though, could've been so much worse.

I hope that you enjoyed creating the 'Precious Moments' layout. Kathie tells me that you did such a fantastic job!! I would love to see your creations - if you have a blog and pop them up, let me know so that I can see

Here is the full reveal

A Layout, some flowers and a Sneek Peek to share

Hey There,

Hope everyone is having a terrific Friday - not long now until the weekend. Yay!!

First Share: LAYOUT

Here is a layout that I have completed recently to symbolise my baby girl who is just growing up way too quickly. We recently started 'potty training' hence the title 'we go Potty' (just in case you thought Potty was something else LOL!!

Oops....Only a sneek peek for now

I have also used some of the embellies from one of the recent WIOIN Girl Bright Kits - thanks Mel just love your kits to bits!!

SECOND SHARE: Some Flowers

It was my birthday on Wednesday and my darling husband came home with these absolutely beautiful flowers from him and my gorgeous girls - I am so spoilt.


Here is a little peek of the gorgeous kit that we will be playing with tonight at Scraphappy Kat's

This kit has a few of my favourite things: butterflies, Basic Grey, My Little Shoebox, bling - Gosh a girl could just go on and on - Thanks so much Kath!!

Happy Hump Day

Is it just me or are the days of the week's just going by so quickly. Cannot believe that it is now the last term of preschool for DD#1 and next week we start our final stage of the transition to school programme. She starts attending the primary school on Friday mornings until the end of the year....Oh my, can someone please pass me a tissue. Yeah I know, I am such a total sook, it's not even the first day of school and I am already blubbering. DD is totally ready and can't wait and well... me, I can wait LOL!!

Anyway, something different now.. I have been creating. Yep shock horror and actually quite a bit. Not all of it I can share just atm but here's a couple of things that I have been working on.
