Maya Road Mini Album

Last night I went to a crop at A Place to Create and made up this mini album kit from Maya Road ... even though i copied it straight from the kit instructions it still took 6 hours to create. I am really happy with the pages except they do not fit back in the album properly ... i think i will have to pull some of the gingerbread men's legs off  so that i am able to flip the pages, then i can pop some photos in ☺

Today Melissa & I caught up with our friend Tina who flew in from Perth this afternoon ...we have not seen Tina for approx 15 years and it was just like we had seen each other yesterday. It was so great seeing Tina and meeting her partner Bec. Tina has not changed a bit it was like we were teenagers again.
Tina was the very first friend I met when we moved to Bribie Island in May 1974.
I can't wait until we catch up again at our High School Reunion in October.

*** the only thing that has changed since our teenage years is all our double chins ☺

We were very well behaved and only came home with the present i went to buy and two tops for Miss T ... oh and a vacuum cleaner as mine died.

B had his volleyball final today, his team were on top as they had been undeafted all season, but they were playing the hardest team they had faced so we all knew it was going to be a great game and a close game. After 4 games the OC won 3 games to 1 what a nailbiting couple of hours is was, i was on the edge of my seat throughout all 4 games. Congratualtions to the OC 1sts team on a fantastic win.
Here they are with their trophy

On Friday March 11th a magnitude 9 earthquake hit off the Japanese coast, triggering a massive and deadly tsunami. Today's photo is from the Courier Mail Gallery showing some of the devastation.
The world has gone mad ... with Australia facing floods, cyclones and fires in January, then Christchurch in New Zealand was hit by a 6.3 magnitude earthquake on February 22nd. What will be next?

These before and after shots show the extent of the devastation.

Stickers for Emma

While reading my blogs this afternoon i came across a story about a young girl named Emma.

Emma is 11 and loves Blythe dolls, stickers, cooking, writing to her penpals, collecting stickers and everything else that little girls love to do. She has also recently started undergoing chemotherapy for a growing tumour in her face/neck/head. Go here to read more about Emma's story.

Right now, you could help put a smile on her face by sending her a card & sticker sheet or even just an envelope with some stickers inside.
Here are Emma's details:
Miss Emma Love
PO Box 2849
Burleigh Waters, QLD, 4220

If you think you could spare a little packet or sheet of stickers to help brighten up her day... i cannot even begin to imagine going through this with one of my children.

Also, if you could possibly tweet, facebook, tell your friends or blog this for Emma, that would be so lovely. Please spread the word and try to fill Emma's mail box to the brim with stickers!

Tonight we finally went to see Wicked  ... I bought my Mum and Wayne's Mum tickets for Christmas, Taylah's Ticket for her Birthday and Ashleigh's for her graduation, so it was Ladies night out ... were meant to go on the 18th January but that was when the  floods hit Brissie and the Lyric Theatre was flooded .... It was so worth the wait it is such an amazing costumes with so many details to take in with the costumes and sets and then there is the talented cast ... Taylah and i saw it in 2008 in Melbourne and fell in love with the show and it was just as good the second time ... hopefully we will get to see it again before it finishes its Brisbane season.

Day 66/365 Photo

Today we said goodbye to an amazing lady ... Ethel Hunt was the Mum of my life long friends John, Sue and Tina  and wife for 57 years  to Alan... i first met the Hunt family 30 years ago when i was just 17 and my friend Kymme and I drove from Bribie Island to Canberra (Kymme's former home town) Alan and Ethel welcomed me into their home like i was one of their children and have been part of my life since ... while over the last 10 years i haven't seen them as much as i would have liked they will forever be a treasured part of my life.

So today's photo is of me with Kymme and another life long friend Karen who still lives in Canberra and travelled up today to say goodbye to Ethel.

RIP Ethel we will miss your you and your beautiful smile  ♥
