So, how was YOUR weekend?...

Ours was great!  I went to Rolleston on a 'roady' with Tania and Mum to go do a Trina class, helping to fundraise for Christchurch all at the same time... apart from the 2 hour trip each way (even more for Tania), it was a fantastic way to spend the day!  J got to hang out with Grandad Jim for the morning while D was at work.  It was good to catch up with Heidi, and to see Trina again too.  She has already done a de-brief on her blog, which you can catch up on here. We did a bit of scrapping and talking crap (as you do!) until the class started.  What a great layout - so simple but so effective.  Love it!  Here's my finished page...


And a few gratuitous close-ups...




And don't forget the compulsory 'photo-with-the-famous-person' !


PS - Hey Squirt, look who Ma scrapbooked on her page (surprise, surprise!)  Tee hee.

So like I said, we did a bit of scrapping and a bit of yacking from mid-morning until the class started at half two.  And being the good scrapper that I am, I took my camera and got Tania to click off some shots of me and Ma together, as I haven't got ANY of us two 'scrapgeeks' together yet (that's what my two sisters call us).  So here's the 'normal' one (if we could ever be called 'normal', ha ha ha!)...


Then Tania said 'be silly' - not too hard to manage tbh!


And I call this the 'recovery from being silly' shot...


Oh well, we had a blast, and I think that you can tell that from the photos :)  I actually DID manage to get a page part-done, but never got to the gluing down part.  Here's a shot of the work in progress...


Yep, Nic and I are always double trouble when we get together, but I think this time that it was me and Mum :)  

So we pretty much headed home straight after the class, getting back to Timmers about 7.15pm.  Not too bad really.  Tania still had to drive on to Waimate, poor thing.  Ma and I had some of Daddy-Jim's leftover Chili Con Carne reheated for tea at her place, then it was 'home james' for me and J.  D was out at a friend's 50th.  I spent a quiet evening having a Criminal Minds Fest, catching up on 3 weeks of overdue MySky viewing.  Lovely!

Yesterday was a pretty quiet day... I was really tired, and have to confess to having a nana nap, although it was so long I probably should have called it a nana-and-grandad-nap!  Pretty much all I managed for the day was a visit to my Nanny's, doing the grocery shopping and cooking up a jam-pan of pumpkin soup.  Impressive huh? Yeah.....

Tonight, however, I lit the fire, cooked a stir fry for tea, divvied up the soup into freezable portions, cooked a couple of bacon and egg pies and two chocolate cakes and dealt to a MOUNTAIN of dishes.  Phew!  Amazing how much you can get done when you have to!  Right, I can hear the oven beeper going off, so my cakes might be ready...

Catch ya later peeps...
