just sharing a few!

its all pretty quiet on the home front here!!
Kev had the weekend off + it rained LOTS................which is good as I turned the tap on Sat morning there was NO water!!

SBO had a cyber crop on Friday ...........sadly I didn't join in much as I had to finish my LO for my challenge...........and btw you still join in on the challenge as you have until Friday.
My challenge was to take a photo of something you might use everyday. I went with the letterbox!!

My letterbox does not sit prettly on a fence or set into some lovely brick work but it sits against the bank that runs below our house right on the roadside...........and btw for those that don't know it I live rural hence the native bush look!! And my posite comes in a van + he just drives right up to it!! But if you send me really BIG BIG parcels he delivers them to my door!! :)

Used lots of my FAV scenic route.
Here's another LO I did using the Feb kit from SBO. That boy was a bit unsure about getting into the smaller pool down at the old school pool. *sigh* love those Fancy Pants stamps!!

Thank you for the congrats on our 10 year mark!!
We were meant to go out for dinner + a movie but sadly Finn was ill + we had to cancel the babysitter right at the last minute. As well we did have a trip planned to go to Hokatika (sp) to the "Wild Food Fest" ( this coming weekend) but our friends we were going with are having their very wanted + longed awaited third baby!! So maybe a trip to Queenstown in June might make up for it all!!! ;)
But hey this week its dinner + movies + we want to go see "Bucket List" or "No Country for Old Men". I know they are both so different but has anyone seen either?
And finally have you seen the lastest Ezine from SBO ?
if you haven't go check it out..............very impressive with the pages flippin + such rockin + inspiring work in there.
Sadly nothing from me as I've got a few non related scrapbooking things going on in my life atm to deal with.
and just to end with this crazy quote I found at a cafe in New Plymouth yesterday(which btw Donna you would LOVE).
Those of you that drink lots of coffee might relate to this!!
"You haven't had enough coffee until you can thread a sewing machine while its running"
Jeff Bezos
have a great week!!

Do you have to put a flag up for the mailman to stop & collect mail? We used to & our mailman used to deliver buns & doughnuts once a week! LOL. That takes me back.
Hey, I can't even thread a sewing machine when it's stopped! More coffee needed here definately!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Enjoy the movies. Know nothing about either!!

My mum saw the bucket list and really enjoyed it but said it was sad.

Hey Rach, I saw the "Bucket List" and it was a really good movie, mind you with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman you can't go wrong! A little thought provoking, but I thought uplifting rather than sad. Makes you want to make the most out of your life.
Have a great week!
