Hello just thought I would do another post. On Sunday I took the girls for their last greyhound walk for the year. we went over to 17Mile rocks waterpark. See their blog Barkings of a Greyhound.
Here is my first christmas layout. Carole saw the beginnings of it when her and Lauren were down so whilst I was finishing it I was trying to incorporate a little bit of "Carole's Flair" um its the 3Ding in the left hand bottom corner. Also here are some christmas cards that I have made. So till next time thank you for reading "Ravings of a lunatic", please secure your tray table and return your seats to their upright position and have a nice day"

Well it is that time of year again. Huge ques at the checkouts. christmas music playing over and over and over in the shops. Sweat soaked santas with piddle stained pants from all the "Good" little boys and girls who scream everytime they see the "man in the red suit" and who are trying desparately to hide under mums skirt/dress rather than go and sit on a strangers lap who by the way have been told over and over "Don't talk to Strangers" HELLO. IT'S CHRISTMAS joy of all joys. Yes if you think I am being rather cynical then you are right. But don't get me wrong I do love the festivities of christmas I just hate the hussle and bussle of "what do I get so and so for christmas" and where are we going to have christmas day with flies and humidity this year. I would just love to have get togethers with family and friends and celebrate the joy of being together. Anyway I think I have killed christmas enough so far so lets find something pleasant to talk about. Dad and Joy came up last week and stayed the week with us. It was nice to have them we had a family get together as we won't be seeing them for christmas this year they are off to Lakes Entrance with their great mates Jules and Peter. Allison and the kids came over and we had a BBQ

Of course the "girls" got into the christmas spirit and wore their christmas tinsel (they really did enjoy it lol)
On Saturday the 29th Nov we had Scrapbook City's awards night and christmas party.There were so many ladies there it was good to catch up with the girls. Lauren and Carole came down from Gladstone as Carole was teaching a class. The girls also stayed with me it was so lovely to have them. We started off the Saturday by visiting a couple of scrapbook shops on my side of town then we joined up with Ronnie, Niss, Sue, Sandra for lunch.
Then we drove over to Graceville State School were we spent the afternoon and evening scrapping and chatting with the rest of the girls. Lauren, Rachael and Sandra each won an award for layouts that they entered into the awards night. The evening ended at about 930pm. Lauren, Carole and I went back to my place where we spent till 0215 scrapping and chatting. I finished Carole's layout from the class. Well that is enough chatting for one post so I will try and be a good girl and get another post in before christmas. So till next time thank you for reading "Ravings of a lunatic", please secure your tray table and return your seats to their upright position and have a nice day"
