Silly Season & Shopping

We've had such a great Christmas/New Year period. John is back to work tomorrow, so we are enjoying one last day before routine sets in again.

My kids had a lovely Christmas. Santa brought a few surprises and they also received lots of fantastic presents from our family and friends. Between us all, we were given a TWO FOOT pile of DVDs!! Most of them kiddies ones, but a few adult ones. Santa brought me the Back to the Future set, which I am VERY happy about!!

We saw New Year in with a bang - lol!! John went to bed around 10pm and I stayed up until midnight scrapping. I had to finish six layouts to get to my goal, which I managed. I will share them with you soon.

Over the last few days, I've been lucky enough to do a little scrap shopping. I haven't had a BIG shop for a long time. The last six months has seen me just picking up bits and pieces from the wonderful Scrapbook City.

Here are a couple of pics of my purchases. I am VERY happy with it all. I ducked down to see Lyndal & Nicky @ Scrapbooks Etc and they were lovely as always. I loved the big, "Hi Sara" in unison as I walked through the door. Very welcoming.


I'm off to catch a bit of the cricket, then a bit of Spring (well, Summer) cleaning. I am dreading the wrapping of the school books, so I might do this soon to get it over and done with, too. I'd rather be scrapping!!
