Um...........remember me?

Hi Lovelies,

I thought I would quickly pop in to say Hello & that I miss you all terribly.  I occassionally get a chance to pop by & see what you are all up to.  Just not enough to write anything - Lilly is a mover & shaker, which means the play pen is good for about ten minutes before she wants out in a big way. 

I'm slowly getting my act together for our "big" trip.  It's been a few years (three to be exact) since we've had a family holiday together & one that was more than a few hours from home.  One week this coming Sunday we will be flying to the other side of Australia - a lovely six hour flight with a baby & a five year old.  I feel for the other passengers I really do.  On top of this Lill's & I have "sinus" issues at the moment so antibiotics have been prescribed by our GP.  I so hope (& pray) that they clear the both of us up before the flight.  Especially for Lilly, as she is also cutting molars at the moment.  I'm planning on having a few bottles of yummy milk for her during take off/landing.  Hopefully that will help with her ears.

I've also started doing some sewing again thanks to my Printerest page thingy.  I've made a portable highchair (wonderful idea) & an art tote.  I must admit that I did add a few changes to the highchair.  The art tote I made from scratch using an internet picture as a guide.  I customised it for Emsy, by adding a pocket for six Rascal books, another pocket for her Gameboy & twelve crayon slots as well as a large pocket for colouring in books.  I have yet to make her a felt playmat for some small animals/dinosaurs.  I'm hoping that these will be enough to keep her happy for the two & a half weeks we are away.  I am pretty sure that between the cousins, zoo & Monkey Mia that Emsy will have a great time.  

Well I'm off to try to make something for my RAK partner :-/ let's hope the mojo is wanting a work out.  Doug has taken the girls out for the arvo, so this will probably be my last chance.  Wish me luck.

Happy crafting everyone xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Good to hear all is well Paula and that it's only life getting in the way. Your holiday has come round quickly ... we are most probably going to Perth at Easter time. I'm sure that Em will have a ball and I pray that you and Lilly are well for the trip. Take care
