I was working at Woolworths at the time when Steve and I first met.
I was a checkout operator and he was a 2IC grocery manager.
I had a crush on Steve for about a year. I liked the way he walked.
During this time I was carrying some excess weight thanks to stopping athletics so I just kept my feelings to myself.
So I lost the weight and felt really good about myself so I got myself some new skirts for work - I guess a little too short - but I was young and carefree and was skinny again so I was flaunting it! LOL!
Well Steve asked me out. At the time I had a boyfriend soI told him no.
He asked me out again but I still had said boyfriend.
Said boyfriend went away for a week and didn't invite me. Hmph!
So I went to work and I was clocking in when Steve walked into the lunchroom.
I said "Hi Stephen. What are you doing tonight?" He said "Nothing." I said "Well do you want to go out then?"
I could not believe the words coming out of my mouth!!! I had never ever asked anyone out!!!!!!
So we went out to the drive-ins. A week later I dumped said boyfriend and we have been together ever since!
I just want to say that I have been reading and noticing stuff lately that I dont like and this is going to reflect in my online habits. Nothing too major. Just been thinking its time for a change.....
Stay happy! :)
PS. If you are in my list and dont think you should be there let me know! LOL! ;)

<------- This is Luke and I. On my 26th birthday. Gosh I feel old. I am no longer 'mid twenties'. I am on the downhill run to 30. *sigh*
So I want to thank everyone for their well wishes. You all know how to make a girl special!
I received the new Stephen King book of my sister as I am a King fan! Stephen went out *today* to get me a present. I ended up with a new pillow (practical), the 3rd Harry Potter book and some hand weights for when I go walking. I also received a box of chocolates and some money! So all in all I had a great day!
As you can see I have finally gotten around to updating my blog list. Well I have started to delete people now I just need to add more! I will get around to it! Promise!
So keep smiling and take care!!!!! :)

2. Already. I wish time would slow down a little.... 2. I still remember everything so clearly.... 2.
We got him a Mega Blocks Pirate Ship - it is so cute! And 2 new Wiggles DVDs as he is obsessed with them at the moment!
Happy Birthday little man!
26.01 - Australia Day
Firstly we got up early - thanks kids - and I went for a run/walk. Then we got ready and went to Nurragingy Reserve to feed the ducks. Obviously we werent the first people there so the ducks were not hungry.... oh well... Had a walk around and then decided to go home.
On the way home Kate asked if we could have McDonalds. Both Steve and I were hungry so we thought that was a good idea. SO we had lunch there and the kids had fun in the play area since they were the only ones in there.
Came home and decided to mow the lawns and trim the trees and take down the Christmas lights. Then had a shower and nanny nap and now I am cybercropping over at The Scrappers Stash! Fun!
Happy Australia Day!

So we left there and had lunch - Oportos - yummo. Thats all I need to say about that.
Then we decided to walk to Hyde Park - we walked past my first branch with Westpac - King and Castlereagh Sts - The Trust Building - it is simply gorgeous! I love old buildings! While we were walking we heard church bells. They were coming from St James Church because mass had finished. They rang and rang for a good 8 - 10 minutes! So of course we had to walk past to check it out! LOL!
Then we went to Hyde Park. I love this park. It is beautiful! This photo is of the Archibald Memorial Fountain with St Marys Cathedral in the background. I always wanted to get married in that church - shame I wasn't Catholic though...
It was too hot in the park for the kids to run around and let of some steam so I took this quick photo of Kate and then we headed off back to the monorail to go back to Darling Harbour to see if the Carousel was open. It was, so Steve took the kids for a ride on it. The ride seemed to go for ages and Luke got bored and tried to get off the horse halfway through.....
Afterwards the kids had a play in the park and then we went back to the car and came home.
Gosh my legs were sore after all that! And I was tired so I had a nanna nap! LOL!
Which brings me to today - I went shopping to Target to put the kids winter clothes on layby. Done. Even got myself some new clothes today for my new job.
Feeling good - have been on a run/walk the last 2 nights and I feel good. I run for about 1km and then walk for 1km and then run again for 1km and then I am home and pooped. Lucky August is like 6 1/2 months away so I have plenty of time to train myself up for 14kms. I hope........
Ok I will sign off for another day.
Take care and stay well!

<------------So I have finished another layout. I had to scraplift a layout from a particular 2Pea user and I chose this layout. I had fun with this layout! Once I agonised over which photos to scrap - inspiration hit - which is always a good thing!
So this is layout number 3 in my challenge - scrap 10 layouts before shopping again. I am hanging to go shopping which is probably why I am getting through a layout a night! I never used to be able to do a layout a week! LOL! I guess since finding my 'groove' it has been so much easier to scrap.
Ok so I didnt get around to my blog link list. Maybe tomorrow.... if I am not too busy scrapping that is! LOL!
Night all! Sleep tight - dont let the bed bugs bite!
Wednesday, January 18, 2006
<------- I did this layout in a real whirlwind! I was looking through my massive pile of photos and I just knew I had to scrap these as soon as I saw them! The photos are from fathers day in 2004. So long ago! So this is my first layout in my "10 layouts before shopping again" challenge. The funny thing is - the papers are like 50c sheets and I didnt use much of my stash for embellishments! But my challenge is just to scrap 10 - I didnt say anything about monetary value! ;)
So this ----------> is my layout for the Memory Bugs DT. We had to do a 'textured' layout using basic grey paper. This is what I came up with. I had other plans for this photo but anyway..... I can always scrap it again I guess.....
So I really want to update my blog link list but havent got around to it yet. I might make that a job for tomorrow night since I was too busy reading my book tonight - The Summer Garden and then I decided to watch Dude, Wheres my car. How hilarious is that movie!?!? I loved it - but I do love all those corny movies.
Anyway, enough blabbing for now.

Nothing much has been happening here. Kylie came over on the weekend and we stayed up too late and then went scrap shopping the next day! FUN!
So as far as my challenge goes... I havent been taking pics - its so much harder than I thought! So I think I will revise the T&Cs to ONE PHOTO PER WEEK! Now that should be easier for us all! LOL!
<----So I took this photo of Luke this morning. He was NOT being very cooperative and this is the only photo that turned out ok! LOL! He just cant sit still that boy! But he is cute so that makes up for it all I guess! LOL! I finished another wedding layout last night. Very happy with it too. I am too scared to do these layouts as I dont want to ruin them, you know. Oh well so far so good I guess.....
I started a challenge on Scrapboxx today - to scrap 10 layouts before you go scrap shopping again. I need to do this as I shop far too much! So this way I can save my money and then have a bit of a splurge. Funny though - not many people have risen to the challenge..... lol!
So thats about all from me today. Off to cruise blogs and scrap! Take it easy everyone!!!
Wednesday, January 11, 2006
Our power went out for an hour and then we had baked beans on toast for dinner and thats about as exciting it gets here! LMAO!!!!!
Ok so here is my photo of the day, the kids were drawing on the concrete and of course left their chalks there. Oh and of course Regina, you can start whenever you like. And if it is too much for anyone, you can do a photo a week, or something like that.
Ok, I am off to cruise some blogs so I will say 'hi' when I drop in! Take care!
Tuesday, January 10, 2006
Well I am in for another sore day tomorrow as I can barely move my arms now!
Went and saw Kylie today! Gotta say I lurve the new M7!!! Such a quick and smooth drive! So I took the kids and Kylie got to see what they look like in real life! LOL!
Ok so for my photo of the day I took a photo of the basketball hoop in our backyard! Here it is unedited:
Keep smiling! :)
Monday, January 9, 2006
So now for my photo of the day. I walked out the backyard and saw the 'plastic graveyard' as I like to call it since it is covered in plastic toys! LOL!!! So when I was walking to the garage I saw Luke's lawn mower and whipper snipper lying together and I couldnt resist! Here it is with no editing:
Oh and I finished that book too. But I think I will give my brain a rest before I didve into the third one.
Oh and we bought part of Kate's school uniform today - the dress. How exciting! Only 3 weeks to go!
Sunday, January 8, 2006
So my challenge is:
Take a photo per day and blog it. It can be something special or some ordinary mundane thing or just something that caught your eye - anything at all!!!!!
So - who is up for the challenge?????
This last week I finished my entry for the Scrapworks DT - not holding my breath as there are some absolutely fantastic scrappers out there!!! But will keep my fingers crossed anyway!
Scrapwise - I finished a CJ that I had had here for a couple of weeks - it was one of those CJs where you didnt want to do your page in case you messed it up! It was just beautiful by the time it got to me - I was the last stop before it went back home. Enjoy Ngaio!
Nothing much else has been happening in the bethroid world. Except it would seem a certain little prank was not taken so well. Apparently my intentions were misunderstood. I am not going to justify myself here - I dont need to as I did nothing wrong other than have some fun! And if people cant understand that, thats their problem. And that is all I have to say about that.
On the home front - I cannot believe that Kate starts school in like 3 weeks!!! ARGH!!! The last 5 years have flown. I only hope the next 5 slow down a little!!!
Ok, off to finish The Bridge to Holy Cross - almost done! It too has been a great book - I wouldnt say as good as the first but great nonetheless.
Tuesday, January 3, 2006
So how can it be that yesterday it was 44 degrees and scorching hot and yet here I sit today in a tracksuit?!?!?!?!? Unbelievable!!!
I went to Kmart today and picked up The Bridge to Holy Cross and The Summer Garden. These are the 2nd and 3rd books in the series by Paullina Simons. I would love to sit there and just devour them but I have to get back to this BTP project.
Oh and me and Kylie - in our infinite wisdom - have increased out posts on Scrapboxx significantly! I have the highest posts on 7500! ROFLMAO!!!!!!
Run, run as fast as you can - you can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man!!!!!
Monday, January 2, 2006
I cannot believe it is 2006. Where did the last year go? In fact, where did the last FIVE years go?!?!?!?!?!?
Last night we just stayed at home but we decided that next year we will take the kids to see the fireworks.
44 degrees here in Sydney today!!!!!!!!!! I couldnt believe it! It was so hot! All I want to say is thank goodness for the airconditioners! But at about 5pm the kids were getting restless so we decided to set up the Slip and Slide they got for Christmas. Luke had a ball and Kate didn't want to go on it! Oh well she was missing out thats for sure! I didnt slide down it but I was more than happy to stand in the water spray! Here is Luke going down it:
I finished The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons today. What a fantastic riveting book! I am off to the shops tomorrow to get the second book in the series The Bridge To Holy Cross. I was reading it last night trying to finish it - when I checked the time and it was 4am! EEK! Lucky for me that Stephen let me sleep in! LOL!
Anyway, enough from me as I am off to do my BTP item for my scrapworks dt entry!
