Blue Book

Finally managed to finish a book. I have another three on the go and hope to finish them this coming week. I have really enjoyed being able to create a book again. So much fun seeing pieces of chipboard, pad of paper, ribbon, eyelets and design paper emerge into a book.

Fingers crossed I should be visiting a little more regularly. The last month has definitely been full on. Started with me having to do Jury Duty for four weeks which ended last week. Last time I was called up the kids were much younger and I used them as an excuse to get out of jury duty. However, this time they are much older and I just could not come up with a legit reason to be excused. I managed to get empanelled twice during my four week stint. First case 1 1/2 days and second case 3 1/2 days. Definitely an interesting experience which I am glad I had the chance to do. This does not mean that I will be volunteering quickly again to do it and happy if that is my one and only chance. :-) Very nerve racking and intense (listening to the facts and making the final decision).

Kids are now on two weeks school holidays.....Yay! No more assignments and complaining that there is too much to do as they left it until the last possible day to start. Also all the study for the exams last week are over and done with.

The last incident to send my life into chaos. Hubby who cycles to work each day was hit by a car who didn't give way when merging from a side road to the highway. Thankfully and luckily, hubby doesn't have any broken bones or head injuries. Managed a deep scrape on his knee and elbow. However, he is very very sore from internal bruising around his rib cage/pelvic area. He has had the last week and a bit off work a he just can't sit for a long period of time and bending his very sore work even though he is taking painkillers. The doctors have xrayed and ct scanned him and couldn't see anything. So it is apparently all bruising and will take time to heal. For other cyclists out there....WEAR YOUR husband did and I definitely think this saved him either serious head injuries or even life. The helmet has the hugest crack on the lefthand forehead side of the helmet. Looking at his head there is a small scratch. I am so glad that it is the helmet with the crack.

Last night I hosted a Stampin Up workshop at my house with my good friend Ruth doing the cardmaking. Such a wonderful and relaxing night creating and catching up with friends. So yes, I have another card to show you tomorrow. :-) Also bought some goodies so will have something new to play with in a weeks time. That has to be good for the old mojo.
