Back to school!

posted in: home, scrapping | 5

Wow, that went fast. The boys have just finished their first week back at school. Well, we’ve got an awful lot going on right now, so everything just flies past. I can’t keep up. To sum up…. we are moving back to the “tree” house. In less than 2 weeks. Which means more organising electricity/phone/carpet cleaning/movers and packing. Lots of packing. And my Dad, Jack, who you’ve previously met, has spent the last 2 weeks in hospital with severe infections and pneumonia. It’s not shifting, and he’s going to be there a while longer. My sister has been over from Tasmania, staying with Mum and doing an amazing job of propping her up, and the other family members have all been visiting Dad and trying to encourage him. In between naps. He naps a lot. But he’ll pull through. He always does, tough old sod.

As a result of this, and the heaps of rain we’ve had this month, and many other dramas which are not for this blog, I haven’t scrapped for quite a while, and I had 3 weeks off of “running” as well. I was very happy to get back into it this week though. I hadn’t realised how much I was missing it, until I got out on the track again.

Sadly, I have to post and run, because I just had a huge day at work and my legs are aching sitting in this hard chair. Time for a soft, warm bed, a mug of milo and some funny Dvd or other on the TV. I’ll try to pop back in a bit more regularly. *skip* and I were just going through our calendars for the next 4 weeks and it’s just crazy. And that’s all the scheduled stuff. It doesn’t include the as needed stuff like going down to visit Dad (1 hour there, 1 hour back trip) and the extra stuff that being back at school involves.

Ok, enough boring typing. Time for something pretty to look at!

Happy Crafting - Cassie.

    Sorry to hear about your dad. Hope he makes a full recovery soon. Hope the move goes smoothly and you can settle in for a drama-free break soon.

    The layouts are amazing! Love all the circles on the fist two! Those seal photos are so sweet! The title on the last one cracked me up! All just wonderful!

    Gorgeous layouts Cassie!! I’ll be keeping you Dad in my thoughts, and praying for a speedy recovery!

    I hope your dad will be okay, it’s so distressing when our loved ones are feeling bad. Your pages are magnificent, and just looking at the last one now I’m so embarrassed because I used the hinges in exactly the same way – your scrapping mojo must have flitted over to me.

    Keep on ‘keeping on’, huh, and schedule that running in somewhere, won’t you? So nice to see you blogging again! 🙂
