Just Because

This whole Christmas business is doing my head in! Ten minutes ago my last present arrived in the mail - yay, so the shopping is all finished and I can breathe again. Well, the present shopping is all finished, I still have some food shopping to go, but that will be dispensed with this afternoon, and because I am not hosting any Christmas functions this year I am pretty well only having to do a normal weekly shop.

Also this afternoon the present wrapping will begin, at which point I will probably realise that I have forgotton something really important, and then feel obliged to hit the shops again eek!

I have fallen a bit behind on my December Daily, but have kept notes so should be able to catch up pretty quickly. Using a set of templates and papers for the entire project certainly makes it easier to make decisions about what goes into the layouts. Maybe I should think more about that idea, limiting my options cuts down on the amount of procrastinating time between making decisions hmm.

I will leave you with a sweet little layout about a sweet little girl that I did this morning when I should have been doing something else... who can argue with the muse, if it is time to scrap, then it is time to scrap, housework can wait ;-)

A little whinge

Why is it that the school sends home a letter telling me my daughter is to receive a special award on presentation day, and that due to lack of space in the school hall could parents consider that Years K to 2 will receive their awards in the first half of the assembly which starts at 9.30am, and years 3-6 will receive awards in the second half of the assembly due to finish at 11.00am (try 11.45am), that they then present in this order K, 5, 6 ... ???

Irritated? who me? Absolutely.

After six years at this school this is her first "big" award and she has worked so hard for it - and I MISSED IT when I arrived at 10.05am, then I got to watch all of years 2,3, and 4 receive their awards in the second half of the assembly - who cares!

So cranky about this!

Think I will go pour a G&T

New digi shop

Any of you digiscrappers out there might want to take a look at a new digi shop just opened on the net.

It is called The Digital Designer Shop, and there are lots of lovely goodies there to take a look at.
