"WHERE I CREATE"!!~~ GETTING THERE...KIND OF!~~~



Hi again ladies re a start to another new week...

I am looking forward THIS week to my eldest son coming home next Sunday through till Tuesday as I haven't seen him since he was last in Melbourne in January to do a BIG BAY swim with my dad...

Soo I am REALLY LOOKING forward to him being home for a few days at least..

Its funny...when your "kids' are YOUNG...you kind of wish they would hurry up & grow up..

school runs/saturday morning sports/parent teacher interviews/concerts/never ending drive up to 6 times per day over the Westgate Bridge..

it sometimes felt like it would never end..

Dont get me wrong...I DID LOVE EVERY moment of it...especially as BOTH boys were "GOOD BOYS"...~~

AND when IT all ends...I did find myself at a kind of a loose END....?

what now...??

Still loving having MR C (21 yo) at home...looking after him..

Goodness knows what I would kind of do when he left home??

Soo when MR B comes home ONCE in a BLUE moon...

OUR family is back AS ONE...(assuming hubby will be home)..

So that is really LOVELY to have the 4 of US together....ALL at ONCE..at the SAME Time...

(that probably sounds a tad strange to some readers...BUT I have NOT had "OUR family" as ONE for a long time...differing commitments/uni schedules/living interstate etc)...

SOOO I am really looking forward to having Byron home...

& of course there is always an ULTERIOR motive....~~~!!!

Hey..he is the APPLE computer GURU....

I have been waiting for him to set up my website store..."THE VINTAGE HATBOX"...

to sell stuff...

SOOO I have been getting my WORK ROOM...come EBAY store room etc....
UP TO SCRATCH...

I have sooo much stuff...ALL over the place...

GETTING organised...

I need it looking good to take photos for the website store...

that has been my MONDAY.....(in between tennis of course!)..

xx andrea

Hi Andrea how wonderful for you to have Byron home. I can't imagine what it would be like to have my kids so far from home. I am so lucky that they have all chosen to live close by. It was wonderful yesterday to have nearly all of us around the table for fathers Day. There were 11 of us only 2 grandchildren missing as it was their 'dads weekend'.
Good Luck with setting up the shop once Mr B is home. Gives you a reason to have to clean up your "Shop space'.

I can totally relate. I'm looking forward to my daughter's visit in 2 weeks too. BTW, I love your pretty coloured frames; they look fabulous!

HI Andrea, your space looks great!All the pics and frames look so interesting on the wall. I wish I had a room just for my sewing but I might have to wait a while for that.
My kids are still at home so I can imagine how much you'd love to have Byron home. I suppose when they're not around is when we really miss them. Hope you weathered the recent storms and floods ok.. I've been watching it on the news and it's just unbelievable! Atleast it's not as bad as in NZ. take care, maryann

Hi Andrea,
Oh, you're creating space looks like fun!
Gosh, I'm sure I'll miss my guys something terrible when they move out as well.
Have fun with the family.
What... You still play tennis is this weather?
Happy creating,
Hugs,
Anna
