Spring 2010

Time for another seasonal update. Spring was rather uneventful – in a good way. Lots of time at home, balanced with plenty of fun times out.

I travelled to….

Sydney…. to climb the harbour bridge

and Bowral for the tulip festival

I listened to….

the new  Bruce Springsteen album – The Promise ,the kids arguing over silly little things and scrapbook podcasts.

I read….

Eyewitness Travel – Alaska and a run of not-so-great romance novels

I watched….

the latest Harry Potter (Gold Class), the Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Despicable Me at the movies. At home we watched a few series including The Mentalist, Lie to Me, final season of The Tudors, and Modern Family.  When Kevin was in the States Amy and I watched all 3 Twilight movies.

We took the girls to see the musical Fame up in Sydney.

I wore…

my new camera bag, Crocs most days, and make-up whenever I left the house (trying to make a bit more of an effort with my appearance),

I scrapped….

the whole of our UK trip – consisting of 3 albums. Also got quiet a few pages done for other albums. I completed LOAD (layout a day) in October and attended a scrapbook afternoon and a weekend away.

Picture Spring - 23rd October

I made….

coconut date balls (yummy and healthy!!), eton mess with mango (for friends), and banana muffins.

Date & coconut balls

I planned…

the vegetable garden (and got all the seedlings planted), our Alaskan flights and worked on plans for our motorhome portion of our trip.

I celebrated…

Christy’s 9th Birthday, Fathers Day, Amy finishing her 2 years in the Academically gifted class, and Halloween with our annual Halloween Party.

I dreamed….

of Christmas and of finally getting some warm sunny days

Odd and sods…

I had to get a new passport due to water damage (and I’d just gotten a new one last year)

The girls started attending roller skating lessons again

I enjoyed 2 weeks school holidays at home with the girls

Amy got glasses for reading

Basketball season started

The girls had their school fun day

We went on a few family bikes rides

And we put up the Christmas tree and started decorating the house.

    Hi Libby, well you’ve been busy! Would you be able to tell us the scrapbooking podcasts you listen to? I used to scrap quite a bit, but haven’t done any for about 2 years – quite a bit to catch up on and some inspiration is required!

    Great catchup. And wow, you must have been busy to complete 3 whole albums on your UK trip! I’m still only half way through an album for a trip from Aug 09! :/
