is it that holidays just zoom by. It only seems like yesterday that we were having end of term drinks, but a week and a half has passed already. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm ~ really not fair. So what have I been doing with the break ~ definitely NO school work, although I can't put that off for too much longer, scrapping, a few days in Sydney, and generally catching up.
So a quick holiday round up:
Monday: scrapping with Liana while the boys played
Tuesday: quite day, cleaned up my computer, installed new software
Wednesday: visited Nyree and the gorgeous Scout, with the girls
Thursday: shopping with Mum and the aunties
Friday: Sydney ~ we took a lunch harbour cruise on a tallship ~ absolutely gorgeous and it stopped raining for the duration of the cruise,

wandered around The Rocks and then walked from The Rocks to our hotel at the top of haymarket ~ Riley was fabulous and walked all the way despite being offered to catch a train several times. Dinner at Chinatown.
Saturday: Steve caught the train to the airport to pick up Nirvana (oh joy ~ NOT!!!). Then we went down to Darling Harbour and toured the Endeavour. Riley was in photo mood, so got a couple of crackers ~ can't wait to scrap these:

Lunch at Darling Harbour and then we headed home.

Let's Scrap Cybercrop was Saturday night and my job was to set a sketch challenge. This was my example:

Sunday: quite day at home washing and scrapping. Finished my Potion Commotion Spell #3:

and worked on Sam's sketch challenge from the cybercrop:

Monday: scrapping with Liana again. Riley and Isaac had a wonderful day playing.
Tuesday: Kaszazz workshop at my house. We learned a technique to make a waterfall album. Serious discussion with Nirvana regarding her behaviour after her Xmas visit ~ that made for an interesting evening.
Today: lunch with my ex-colleagues from Singleton. We went to Nightingale's Wines and had a totally delicious meal ~ just perfect ~ good food, good wine and excellent company ~ a perfect day actually.
Tomorrow: off to Sydney, early with Liana to collect a variety of goods for the new house.
So only a few more days to complete some challenges that I want to do. I have also signed up for the Mystical DT challenge comp which starts on Sunday.
