good morning!

well, the first week back at school has finished, even if it was only three days.

Kirsty has had a great first week at high school.. She seems to have grown up overnight! here she is in her formal school uniform for the first day

and here is Kirst and Mandy....ah they do love each other lol

I haven't had a chance to do any scrapping this week, I have finally cleaned my scrap desk... it was an absolute mess. I have done alot of reorganisation and hopefully this will make it easier to keep it tidy... now I have to sort out the rest of the room.... I have a cupboard full of scrap/card making mags that go back about 6 years.... I am finally going to get rid of them! Craig has bought the trailer home so that I can start filling it! And then I am going to start on the rest of the house..... it is time to declutter! I am a bit of a hoarder.... and my girls aren't any better! But that is definitely a job to do while they are at school!

Have a great day everyone mwah!

A new start :)

This all started from Kerryn's 'All About Me'  Scrapbook Savvy Challenge for this month.
I would like you to think about where you would like your journey to head this year, what things you would like to achieve and what things require some serious changes. I do not want you to set goals, this is not a contract, it is a page you will use throughout the year to reflect upon or help to put things back into perspective.

I spent many hours laying awake at night trying to work out what I would do my page on. I ended up doing mine on 'To be happy in 2010' To me that summed up all of the other things that I could have done my LO on.

I know that Kerryn said not to set goals... but for me I have too to achieve what I want out of 2010
My goals for 2010 are :
To be more organised, (time management is not my strong point....) more organised in the house, garden, paying bills, grocery shopping and the list just goes on...

To spend more time with my girls I always seem to be too busy for them, they are growing up so quicky..it wont be long and they wont want to spend time with their old mother

More time for what I love to do I am always complaining that I dont have time to scrap....but what am I doing instead???

To loose weight and to be healthier I am the heaviest I have ever been, even while pregnant with both my girls I started at WW before Christmas and was going great, going on holidays put a stop to that. I have managed to drop the weight that I put on while away...
To tell the truth...I have been using my depression over the last two years as a bit of a crutch....an excuse in my own mind for all of the above

I used to be soooo Anal about things! I think I thought that I was too worried about what everyone thought about me and after my last break down I adopted the "I dont give a S#^t about what anyone thought" attitude.
As of today I am turning over a new leaf.... i have adopted some organisation techniques (thanks Sar xx) Which I am hoping that will make the rest of my goals fall into place.
And thanks Kerryn for your great challenge! It was just what I needed to give me a jump start mwah!
