Well, I didnt make it to round 3 of the Effer Dares Last Scrapper Standing. Oh well. I think I wasnt "effer" enough iykwim. Here is the layout I did anyway:

Kate got to stay home today, she wasnt sick, she had lice, but she acted like she was sick all day! She moped around on the couch and seriously acted like she was sick. Whats with that?!?!

Today was another glorious day in Sydney so we walked up to the shop. I got the kids a cheese and bacon roll for lunch and got a spare in case one of them was super hungry. Turns out they werent and so guess who broke their low carb diet? Ummm yeah me. But on these bleeping shakes you really start to miss real food with real texture! I savoured every bite too! I have been going hard on this diet for 14 days now and I have lost 3 kilos. So starting again tomorrow for another week... or two...

I ran last week! Gosh it hurt the next day! Seriously I could barely walk!! But it was so exhilarating to be back out there and I realised that I really did miss it!

So it is day something-or-other of The Rhonna Farrer 21 Day Challenge but I thought it was a little boring and I didnt want to bore everyone. So if you are interested in her challenge, check out her blog!

Well tomorrow is my last day of being a part time worker. I am a little saddened by this as I really love spending the extra time with Luke and being able to help out at the school, but I know it will pay off in the long run.

Thats about it from me! Cheers and have a good one!!! :-)


  1. Hi Beth!

    Love that layout, but you knew that already :) Grrrr about the lice...arent they horrid things!?!? Well done getting back into the running, and the diet too :)

  2. Wonderful LO Beth, sorry about not getting through.

    Good for you to go running. Hope the transition from PT work to FT work is not too hard.

  3. Hi Beth, love your layout. I can imagine how you must be feeling about going back to part-time, I am so lucky I get to work from home, I would find it hard as well.

    Good luck with everything.

    Best Wishes
