Look out Malaysia

here we come

We have just booked our first overseas holiday....

We are off to Kuala Lumpar on the 6th September and return home on the 15th. We were lucky enough to find a very nice hotel that had family rooms with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, dining and lounge room. The place is called
Pacific Regency. I am so excited and will be counting down the days until we head off. It is going to be quite a culture shock for us I reckon. I have been told that the shopping over there is FANTABULOUS so it is going to be so much fun. I will be posting updates (for my mummy to see) on facebook so you can catch up with me there. I am sure that I will have hundreds of photos when we come back to so I am warning you to prepare for some long posts LOL

In other news at the Love household, Emma had a dancing competition on the weekend and came 5th. I thought she would be very upset at not coming top 3 but she was very gracious and took it in her stride.

Jacob went to his first fencing lesson on Tuesday night although from the sounds of it there is no actual lesson, you just suit up and challenge others to a duel. He liked it so that is the main thing.

Ok so it is time to go as I have an itinerery to do up...... :-)

until next time take care and stay safe

Another Photo

How beautiful is this, so serene. Was taken down at Burleigh Beach.

We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the country.

Playing with Photoshop

So as the title suggests I have been having a little play in photoshop. Wow I did not realise that you could do so much.

Here are the photos I played with. The originals are below.

Thanks for looking

Bad Blogger :-)

It feels like forever since I blogged..... Not a lot has happened. I am feeling heaps better after surgery and everything is A OK.
I bought a Scrapbook Creations today (the first in ages) and I was quite surprised to see one of my layouts in there. Forgot it was even being published

edited: Just realised there is a small shot of this layout on the front cover of the magazine - woo hoo to me lol

This was for the "shades of grey" feature. I love this layout.

The children came home from their first holiday away from mum and dad. They stayed in Newcastle with Stuart's parents. They had the best time ever, as you can see from the photos.

We were lucky enough to attend a Corporate meet and greet with the Titans Rugby Team last night. Emma was in 7th heaven as she got to meet her favourite player, Scotty Prince. She knows all his stats etc etc... Quite funny really.

The players were awesome and after their training they mingled with everyone there and were so great to the children.

Stuart and I have our niece and nephew over for the night as my brother and his wife have gone out. The kids play so well together. There is only a matter of a few months between them so that helps. The girls have been busy raiding my craft room and making book marks. I let them loose in the kitchen this afternoon too. Ended up with a beautiful cake but one enormous mess.
Well I have nothing more to chat about tonight. Not feeling too well at the moment as I seem to have caught this horrible cold that is going around. Stuffy head, runny nose etc etc. Not much fun I can assure you.
Hope this finds you all healthy and happy

Home from Hospital

Had to go to hospital for an operation this week. Was supposed to stay in for two or three days but I managed to get them to agree for me to be discharged today. I will hopefully get some sleep tonight in my own bed as last night every half an hour they would come in and check you or to give you another injection or tablet...... Not to mention the person in the next room was snoring all night (loudly)

Ok well I am going back to bed as the meds I am on are pretty strong and make me very sleepy. See you all later

Leanne :)
