Hospital sleepover and layouts

Yesterday Emma decided to spike a high temp which for a normal person wouldn't be too much of a worry but for Emma being on Chemotherapy and all meant that we had to take her to hospital.  We headed on over late in the afternoon and ended up sleeping the night just so they could do her bloods and a few x rays.  She is fine but they just have to take extra care just in case she has an infection.  Having very few white cells means that if she was to get sick then her body would not fight it as ours would.

Emma slept well all night but man my bed was awful.  I tossed and turned all night and my fold out bed was so noisy (squeaky) every time I moved Emma would stir a little....  Nice to be home now though.

I had scrapped a few layouts a while ago for Mad about Scrapping and though I had better share them.

I do have another few things to share with you but you will have to wait until I photograph them. 

Ok well I have to go and get ready to go collect Jacob from school.  I cannot wait to get into bed tonight.... My sweet sweet soft comfy bed ahhhhh heaven

Emma came home to a lovely surprise today.  The ever gorgeous Julie Tucker Wolek sent Emma an amazing parcel all the way from Phoenix, Arizona.  She was beside herself with excitement.  The parcel was filled with beautiful papers and envelopes for her to write to her penpals. 

When Julie said she was going to send Emma a little something I certainly wasn't expecting the huge parcel that arrived.  Julie we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are truly an angel and we love you

The photos are not that good but you get the idea of how excited she was.

Ok am in the middle of some scrapping so will go and get dirty.

Valentines surprise

Emma was not looking forward to having her Chemotherapy yesterday as it was Valentines Day and she said that it should be a happy day.  Well not having chemo was never an option so she just had to deal with it.  Her chemo ended up not being as bad as she thought though as there was a surprise waiting for her from my sister and niece..................................

She just had to ring Linda and Katelyn up straight away to say thank you

Raspberry Sorbet

I can't believe that I finally ordered a Blythe doll.  Emma is going to be so excited when she gets her.   She is so pretty.

Last week while Emma and I were driving we found a large timber doll house sitting on the side of the road waiting for council pick up, lets just say the council didn't get this one :-)
We popped it in the boot of my car and it is now sitting in the garage waiting to be transformed.  There is a little bit of work that needs to be done to bring it back to looking good but that will be our project for the next few weekends.

Cannot wait to share it with you.

Cyclone Yasi

We are all praying for our fellow Queenslanders affected by the oncoming cyclone.

Cyclone Yasi has been upgraded to a category 5 which is just insane......The worst Australia has seen since 1918........  Our poor old State has been copping a real bashing lately.  Mother Nature, whatever it is we have done then believe us when we say we are extremely sorry.........:-(

For those of you who don't know what a cyclone is then another word for it would be Hurricane or Typhoon.  You can click on the link below to look at Cyclone Yasi.  She is due to hit land at about mid night.  I am not looking forward to hearing the news in the morning.  Praying that everyone is safe and that no more lives are lost to Mother Nature

God Bless
