Hey there...hope you had a great Saturday.

I spent a few hours serving Pork Rolls and the school was good to be involved and meet other parents. Where would schools be at times like that without lots of parents chipping in's what you've gotta do:-))

Tonight, whilst kicking back and enjoying my creative time, I've been playing with the latest challenges from My Mind's Eye and The Shabby Tea are the challenges....

Tomorrow looks like another big day....a Uni Open Day to check out, a trip to Spotlight for some work related craft shopping and then shoe shopping for DD's Dinner Dance....that should be quite enough to fill the day I think.

Lucky I'll be home on Monday enjoying the Brisbane Show Holiday....yippee!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend...thanks for popping in and for your lovely comments that make my day!
