Rak time x 2!







Hiya to anyone that still reads this blog lol

I have two Rak Flower giveaways to give away seeing as I am in the festive mood lol

These are new flowers I havent used or touched and I want someone to get some use out of them seeing as I am giving up scrapbooking! So leave a comment and I will pick a winner on Christmas Eve :) :P

Everything is going ok here,I have my bad days and good days,I take my hat off to all single Mum's ,these last 15 months have been great but also very hard,sometimes I want to crawl into a ball and shut off the world but my little man makes me smile and I get through the day and am grateful I have him in my life :) I have learnt who my real friends are and they have been supportive and wonderful ,am grateful to have such good friends in my life. Luke starts Kindy in Feb,can't believe my little man is 4 in March,how time flies! He is excelling in swimming also and loves childcare which he will be still doing next year also :)

Mum starts her chemo 29th December,they removed a lump last month but found another growth,so unfortunately Mum has to have the chemo and some other medicines,she has her good days and bad days but the family and her friends are all rallying around to get her through it.
I am thinking of doing a Teachers assistant course next year so hopefully next month I will be successful and be a student once again! I will also be still working casually aswell so next year I reckon will be full on but this is something I really want to do :)


Christmas is next week and I can't wait to see Luke's face Christmas Day,he has fully gotten into Christmas this year and adores Santa ( not so much the last few years lol ) so this year has been pleasurable and wonderful to watch,so Christmas Day is going to br great with him


Here are som pics I wanted to share,hope everyone has a lovely Christmas and I will post the winners next week :) So LEAVE A COMMENT!!!!! XXXXXXXXXXXX

A lot has happened.....







It's not often I come in here now,a lot going on and I am not sure anyone reads my blog anymore lol






Scrapping wise,I think I won't be continuing with it anymore for a numbers of reasons 1.tight budget being a single mum and 2.no mojo what so ever, I might one day get that mojo back but its not looking good,maybe next year it might come back but atm everything else needs to be paid,so scrapbooking has hit the backburner!


Last week I received some very upsetting news,that my Mum has Breast Cancer,to say the family is shocked and upset is an understatement :( I think the whole family cried all day the day we found out,hopefully it is not advanced,Mum goes in next week to hospital to have it removed and then I guess we take it from there :( Please cross your fingers and toes that all goes well please ....


Luke is well,keeps talking about Santa already and is quite the bossy boots sometimes but I love him to death,he also comes out with the funniest things sometimes and it's hard not to love him lol I have been wrapping Xmas pressies today ( Luke is with his Dad atm so was a good time!) and dont have many pressies to buy now,only Mum and Dads and a few others.Am looking forward to putting up the tree,as I will be having a different colour theme this year,I get bored with the same colours lol Not sure what is happeneing with Mum bei ng sick but I have to try and do something for Luke and something with the family hopefully .

Yesterday I managed to get Pink concert tickets,am so excited! Not the best seats but seats non the less ! So am looking foward to going in May :)

My gorgeous neice turned a couple of weeks ago,seems like yesterday she was born,time flies! She is a right little girl now and got very spoilt!


I hope someone still comes in here and reads,otherwise I think I will be ending my blogging days after Christmas ! Please leave me a comment if you do


Will leave you with some pics of my little man,hope all is well in your lifes x

Spring







Is finally here,couldn't have come any faster !! Lol I was over the Winter months and am glad we are starting to get some sunny days even though the nights are still cold!
I did some scrapping,one is for the guest spot on 3AS :)
Luke is good,a real Mummy's and Nanny's boy :) He is with is Dad atm thats why I am updating this blog as I have tidied my study and catching up on things :)
Got my tax back the other week,didnt get a great amount but thought I would treat myself to a Nintendo WII AND WII Fit :) Hopefully Luke won't put all his grubby fingers all over it lol
Am thinking of going back to TAFE and do some study,like to keep my brain active and want to expand my experience etc ,bit worried about how I will do it being on my own with Luke but I am determined to do it!
Had a lovely birthday last month and got spoilt! Took Luke to Circus Joseph Ashton and he liked it :) Unfortunately I got hayfever but managed to get through it even though I was sneezing my head off lol Luke got a pony ride twice so was pretty stoked lol
Anyway that's all from me for now,will post again shortly if anyone reads this blog still rofl

Boo!






















Lol did I scare ya lol I have been really really bad and not blogged for ages as you can tell,I havent scrapped since my last post either :( no mojo at all ! A lot going on,being a mummy,dealing with seperation crap,lack of sleep etc,lots of sickness,so as you can tell I haven't had the energy to even thinking of updating lol





Luke is great and cute as ever,still very affectionate but also has his tantys lol He tells me he loves me daily,quite often during the day which melts my heart! Can't believe he is 3.5 years old now! Kindy next year omgggggggggggg





My birthday is on the 24th,going out with some friends the night before to Burswood and then on the day going to the circus with my parents and little man,looking forward to it and no doubt take lots of pics :) I turn 29 so one more year until the dirty 30 :P I am scared but kind of excited ,it's weird!



Mum,Dad and I took Luke to Caversham and Whiteman Park for the first time yesterday,he loved it,had a tram ride and got all excited,still thought it was a train which was very cute and he loved patting the kangaroos! Had a blast and promptly fell asleep early last night at my parents house as he stayed over :)



Also had a breakthrough today,managed to get him to sit in the toilet for number 2's,I am having a mission doing this,so hopefully this time it will continue! You would have thought we were having a party with the commotion I made when he did it lol



Anyway,here are some pics,more recent :)

Don't have a heart attack lol
















I scrapped lol
I have had no mojo what so ever but seemed to come back when I got some goodies and I have got the week to myself while Luke is with his Dad. The blue layout is called "Heartbreaker" but I haven't had a chance to get a good pic because the weather was pretty crappy here,typically the sun is shining today and I can't be fudged taking more pics and cropping and uploading them lol
Not doing much,trying to keep busy while Luke isn't with me,when your day is occupied by kid/s it's harder to go back to being alone! I might go to the movies today and see that new Adam Sandler movie and relax,had a nice lovely lie in this morning..
Luke has a party to go to next week so no doubt I will be posting pics in here ,he also has been asking pretty much everyday to go and see "Kung Fu Panda" but it's hard explaining it's not out at the movies yet so he will be excited to be taken next week lol
Anyhoo have a great day and thanks for making such lovely comments x

Some pics

Yay I have a camera,well until I get another one of my own my wonderful Dad had let me borrow his seeing as he hardly uses it and he knows I have to take pics of Luke ;)
I have laybuyed another camera but god knows when I will pay that off lol Good old bills and other important things come first! Can't wait to get it though!
These pics were taken near Hillarys Marina,a beach right next to it ( for those Perthies) was a bit chilly but after Luke and I had a bit of a run we soon warmed up lol Little monkey is fast lol

RAK time!







Ok seeing as my blog views have reached over 5000 :P I have a Rak to give away and it's gonna be a surprise :P but it's a good surprise :P So I will leave this post open for a week so leave a comment to be in the running and I will get Luke to pick a name when he gets back from his Dad's :) So don't be shy and comment,I know you want to :P ;)




Not much happening here,Luke has been with his Dad since Wednesday and I am missing him sooo much,it's nice to have a break and do what I want but gosh do you miss your kid/s when you don't have them,it's catch 22 isn't it!! lol



Luke got sick again this week,vomiting a bit and a temp,doctor suspected appendicitis but I think it was just a stomach gastro bug as he hasn't got any worse and is getting better,hopefully it isn't the latter! One reason why I hate the cooler weather sometimes cos everyone seems to catch everything!




I went out last night,to a pub and had a lot of fun,there was a fight as usual and I even got flashed a g -string by some drunk Pommy girl lol Didn't get hom until late and I now know why i go to bed early ,am surprised I could keep my eyes open lol



I also went and saw the new Indiana Jones movie today,I LOVED the ones in the 80's and even though the new one was good,you can't go past the classics I am afraid! I am hanging out for Narnia to come out next month,I loved those books as a kid ( was a real bookworm) and I have seen all the movies so far :) Am trying so hard to fill my days in without Luke,how sad is that lol I guess when you have a child with you 24/7 then something like seperation happens and you have your times without him it's hard!






I also went op shopping the other day,got some great bargains,is it just me or some of the prices in these shops gone up A LOT????!!!! Some of the stuff I saw was very pricey and would be better to spend a few more dollars in a shop brand new! lol I understand it goes to charity (well I hope it would) but op shops are supposed to be cheaper than normal shops now some of them are getting close to other shops prices !! You still with me lol



Anyway I will leave you some more pics of Luke,I bought him a " Cars" dressing gown and he loves it,I have never been able to get him to wear one on his own accord but he loves this! lol He even put on his "Bob " beanie and gloves bless him lol at least he is warm lol


Annnnnddddd I also have some new scrap goodies on the way to play with and I printed out some pics so very soon you shall see some new layouts ;)



ALSO...........check out the lovely Dannii Best's blog as she has also put a RAK up for grabs on her blog ;) ,also check out her shop while you are at it ;) Click on the link below at the bottom of my blog! xx

Sick household











I haven't updated for a few weeks,slack I know,Luke has been poorly,had to take him to emergency on Mothers Day night as he got croup,was very very ill and they took him in straight away so there was no waiting for us thank god. His temp got to 39.5 and he was very listless,wanted Mummy and absolutely refused to take Panadol :( My parents were great,Mum came with me to hospital and helped. I took him the dr's yesterday and he is on the mend but I tell you croup is FRIGHTENING,to hear my little boy gasp for breath and cough like he was barking was horrible,it teared me up,HOPEFULLY he won't get it again this year but I have to keep an eye out




I now have a cold and I feel like crap,guess I am run down from Luke being sick,lack of sleep and not being able to rest either,hopefully I will get better soon!




My Dad turned 57 today,he is the type of Man that doesnt like fuss so we just did a cake and pressies and Luke helped him blow out the candles haha I didn't have my camera on me at the time which was a bummer :(




Not done any scrapping for awhile,really need to print out some pics,which I will do next week when P has Luke for the week and I can do it in peace lol I also have a very strict budget for scrapping now so I can't buy as much ,but when I get pics hopefully my mojo will come back!




Luke has been lovely apart from being sick,he is the most funny ,adorable boy and I love him to bits,he comes out with the funniest stuff and he is such a boy with some of the stuff he comes out with lol I swear everyday he says more and more words and sentences and comes up with something new,it's so beautiful!




I have a girls night out on the 30th,am so looking forward to it,haven't had one for ages,am off for dinner and drinks with some W.A EB girls and I am hanging out for it lol




Um not much else happening,really need a holiday but need money to do that haha




Have added some recent pics of Luke etc :) some are from a party he went to at Hungry Jacks before he got sick,"helping "Grandad with the gardening and one before bed :P



Oh and keep and eye out for a RAK next post I see I am around the 5000 view mark :P

Pandora


I got myself a Pandora bracelet after waiting over a year to get one lol Seeing as Mothers Day is about 2 weeks away I thought what the hell I am gonna treat myself to one seeing as I have gone through a lot lately and hell a Mummy deserves a treat lol So I got a silver one and a few beads and I know it will take me a long time to fill it but at least I have the bracelet now lol I couldn't believe how dear the gold is,think I need to win lotto for that one lol

Mothers Day I am having breakfast out with Mum ,Dad and Luke at a different venue this time so I am really looking forward to it,we are going to the Mullaloo Beach Hotel which is on the beach front and is really nice :)

Been a slacker!


Ok,so I am a slacker,I admit it,have been lazy and not updated for a few weeks, *slaps wrist*

I have been busy with the usual Mummy stuff,started back at childcare again,doing relief and wow it's so weird being back after 5 years lol,doing this for me time,money and get back more experience,I worked for a lovely child care centre on Tuesday and they want me back again for 4 more days in the the next month! I can't believe how many phone calls I have gotten to do relief and it's only been 3 weeks since I put my details through to ABC

Many people I know don't like ABC centres,I understand because I was one of them but the centre my gorgeous boy goes to is ABC and he LOVES it,I love the girls there and the co ordinator and the centre I did relief at the other day was also lovely,so I reckon for those who are so so about them,it's the Staff that makes the centre,so don't judge beforehand!

So I am doing this for me and Luke,I might have to put him in an extra day into childcare sometimes but I know he enjoys it and I am doing this for us.

On the single Mummy front,same old,I went on a date the other day,nice guy,so see how it goes,I am not rushing into anything but I also want to be happy again and find love,I am loving being a Mum,even on those bad days but I also want to be with someone one day,hey I figure if nothing comes out of these dates I have a lot of friends and that is better than nothing! Luke is my Number one and always will be! Life as a single Mum can be tough and tiring so I take my hat off to all the sinlge Mums out there!

I also have to share this simply GORGEOUS photo of my handsome boy at childcare,he looks so much older in this photo and makes me smile every time I look at this,he is so adorable!!!!

I did some Layouts a few weeks ago but am still yet to take some pics but I will asap,I am studying for my first aid course which I have on Monday,so any Luke free time is filled with that this weekend!

Hope everyone is well and Belinda of course I remember you chicky,thank you for leaving such a lovely comment and I hope to be back in the forums when I get 2 seconds to myself lol

Hope everyone is well and I do read EVERYONES blogs,I just don't get enough time to comment but I love everyones entries and it's great seeing what everyone gets up to !

:P
Stay safe and thanks to all the gorgeous people who read my blog,just comment more will ya lol
