pop the champagne!

yes ladies and gentlemen let the celebrations begin...holidays have started for this little black duck and then in two weeks time i will officially begin 9 weeks of long service leave!! my 'teacher cap' is already somewhere on the study floor and my 'mummy cap' firmly in place :p i leave behind a lovely class and a wonderful teaching partner but i so need this break. i can already see how fast the time will fly as i fill up my calendar with 'must do lists'. the first list to complete is my order of hearts and birds for funky fabrix. it will be so worth it to see my creations in her shop front window!
the last time i wrote i was heading off to my 20 year high school reunion... well it wasn't so bad after all and i was the same as every other gorgeous gal there. i had a lovely night but sadly a nasty migraine of sorts started to take over the night and i actually begged my friend to take me home. i walked in the door, vomited and immediately felt the pressure of the headache release. i guess we could have headed back out but i went to bed instead. how sad is that!! i need a do over but that ain't going to happen. i have decided that i will just head back up the hill and have a night out with my close high school pals instead, sometime closer to the festive season.
here we are just before heading out. i am in the blue shirt then my friends Kylie, Julie and Miranda
and here is the cohort of seniors from 1989, we had a good turn out but once again some of the faces i would have liked to have seen were not there.
Tina and Juls
Mandy and Kylie. i have known Kylie since grade 3 which means that we have been friends for 30 years!! i just love her and always have fun when she is around.
after my husbands comment about looking like i was wearing a jockey's shirt...i went and bought a new top, it was actually really nice to wear as it hid all of my lumps and bumps. lucky i have an honest mister isn't it?!? so there you have it, a good night ruined by a big headache. the best thing for my self esteem was to see these lovely ladies and knowing that we have all aged well.
i will be back with a spring cleaning update, that is also on my to do list...
and before i go, check out my new online shopfront on madeit, it is in Aussie dollars which sort of makes it easier for any Aussie customers that i might have. i have called it 'itty bitty and pretty' just in case i ever get together with my sister and niece and hold a market stall...
smooches from a very relaxed ME %*_*%

But with three punks to keep entertained and clean up after,Welll Do not like my chances too much!

How great is that shop!

Wouldn't it be awful if they made you wear an actual teacher's cap? :D

You look smashing!! And strangely young; my first thought - is that you or lili?

What a pity a migraine had to happen on your special night Rosie. At least you looked great and you could enjoy part of the night.

Yay.... long service!! I bet you have such a loooooong list of things to do. Make sure you do have some special 'ME' time as well.
Looking forward to seeing all the photos of your crafting exploits during this time.
Hugs ~ Kerryanne
