sneaky

LOL- I'm doing a *sneaky*- While tha cat's(Wayne) snoring on the couch the mouse will play quickly. ( I promised not to work too long on the computer during the festive season-hee hee) So sneaking it....

I hope you all had a Very Merry Christmas with your families and loved ones? Mine was the most relaxing I've had in YEARS!! I didn't have to cook a thing! Just had to rock up at my sister houst and eat and well eat some more-ROTF!

The morning was raining and cool too which was a nice change to the heat- but the funniest was that for the first time the *PARENTS* had to wait for their son to wake up!! hahahahahaha- Wayne and I got up early- but Nathan slept in till 9am!!! We laughed at the change of roles as usually he would wake us at sparrow fart to open presents!
I've had family and friends from afar and it's been a wonderful few days holiday- Hubby took the week off between Christmas and New Year so I've been spending time with him. Besides catching up on sleep, we've finished the paving, some of the garden beds and refurbished my bedroom too! WOOOHOOOOO!


Tomorrow is my mom's birthday so I thought I had BETTER sneak on here now as I will never make it tomorrow- hahahahahahaha


Yup- friends are coming around later tomorrow afternoon to start with a cocktail evening! Then we are off to a venue where NONE of us have to clean a thing up on the 1st! hahahahaha


Sheeesh, hangovers are bad enough as it is- let alone cleaning up the glasses that still have alcohol in them in the morning- GAG-YUGH!!ahahahaha


Just to let you all know that my Jan Colour challenge is up ( yeah a little early too-lol, but oh better safe than sorry right-hee hee)


Here is a preview of the posting gifty for this month using the new colour swatch.

I just want to take this time to wish you all a FANTASTIC NEW YEAR, may 2008 be full of love, laughter, friends and all that you hope for! I am so looking forward to starting my New Year with you too! Renee my wonderful South African CT member and friend sent me this tonight and I've asked her permission to share it here with YOU - my friends and digi-family.

It's just tooo beautiful not to pass on!

I'm an AUNTY

WHOOOOHOOOOO- I'm officially an AUNTY!!! I'm soo soo excited! Gee's I've been waiting for ages for a niece or nephew! And *she* arrived way ahead of schedule too!

My Sister had been leaking water since Thursday last week- landed up in and out of hospital on steroid treatments hoping to stop the *leak*- she went home feeling fine and went to her Gyn yesterday for a check up and a sonar scan.! As they were walking OUT the docs office she *squirted this time as she put it* again! So he put her in hospital ( this time permanently on bed rest) but decided to do a ceasear(*sp*) for the baby's sake as the fluid loss was quite large.

At 6 weeks early they warned my sister about the baby going to ICU and incubators,pipes etc- WELL- my little NIECE came out screaming and kicking- LOL. She shocked the doctors and nurses and is in the NORMAL maternity ward!!! So last night was a scary and exciting all at the same time!!

But OH MAN- she's TINY!! LOL All of 2.1kg! (x2.2 for pounds)- that's MORE than HALF the size of Nathan who was 4.5kg!!!!

Bring on the PINK PEOPLE!!! YIPPPPEEEEEE

Ok- At the moment life has hit what I would call HECTIC- hahahaha- so I have no freebie today but I HAD TO SHARE MY NEWS-

AND - My CT are all on the look out today to hand out some EARLY CHRISTMAS PRESSIES!! YIPPPPEEEEEE- fun day all round! hahahahaha--

But here are just a few more LO's using my A Purple Christmas Kit-



This one is from Renee- and oh goodness looking at that picture- here comes AUNTY to SPOIL My little niece! LOL


And this is from Colleen- LOVE those decorations!!!!! Stunning!!
And now I'm running out again! LOL- Until tomorrow- hugs and loves, Kim

Nearly done

Wooohooooo- well I had to drop Nathan off EARLY this morning so that he could go to Bushmans River with friends- and I decided to HIT the shops! YAY- I think everyone was still sleeping! hahahaha- Well it did start filling up about 10.30am- but I never stood in ONE QUEUE!! My type of shopping! So I got what I needed and wanted to buy from that shopping centre and I feel RELIEVED that some of my shopping is DONE! WOOOHOOOOO!

Gee's is it just me or is the NET QUIET at the moment- well I can understand it really- everyone is shopping, cooking or on holiday- but PHEWWWIEEE- my own voice is echoing around here- wahahahaha.

On the run-

Well it's been a rather crazy CHAOS day LOL- went to the first shopping centre and Wayne and I looked at each other and went * OH HELL NO*- wahahahaha. People were parking on the pavements, on anything that a car could fit on basically- so we just did a U-ie and made like Donald and DUCKED! hahahaha- Stopped at the new one on the way home that actually wasn't that bad and got a few things for the table and a few pressies- but oh my list is still WAY toooo long- hahahaha

We have decided to go in the evening after work!- Extended shopping hours now and I remember last year the stores are QUIET around supper time! hahahaha- So that's where I'll be going tomorrow night! To FINISH MY LIST!!

Also managed to clear out my cupboard this morning- YIPPPEEEE, ok one down three more to go- ( Wayne, Nathan and the spare room!) But at least it's a start! The carpet guy say's they can only replace my carpet in Jan(Water damaged spare room and passage!!)- so that gives me a chance to paint them again so I don't mess on the FLOOR!!! hahahahahaha- Don't laugh- with my luck I'll spill all the paint the day AFTER they replace it- hahaha

I posted my 'REVEAL' for my bag last night- * so check yesterday's post* to see what's inside- they will be up tomorrow @ 25% off for a limited time if you missed it.

Contractors and lunch

Ok- LOL, Maybe I shouldn't be posting now- ROTF- I had my Friend Deon's(aka PINK) Christmas lunch- and well yeah- I didn't have coffee- LOL

Just got back ( that's a 5 hour lunch!!) besides my stomach being WAY tooo fuLL- my ass is numb too! hahahahahaha-

But I couldn't go today without showing you the hole in my ceiling- LOL. I've had a house full of contractors this morning- the builder, the carpet guy and of course the plumber yesterday! So been rather 'busy'- LOL- And then LUNCH!! So sorry guys there's no freebie today- but thought I'd share some LO's and the photo's!! I got my new camara!!! WHOOOOPPPIEEEE- so am playing with it at the moment! Gee's took me a while to figure out all the buttons- LOL, Never used a Canon before and got so used the the Nikon 'buttons'- but let me tell you!! WOW - I'm sooo sooo thrilled with the pics! The clarity and the sharpness ALONE have made me a Canon convert! LOL

OK OK

So here is the hole in my celing- but check it closely- it looks like a HUGE BULLET HOLE!! That's the amount of pressure that came flying through there that it blasted a HOLE- not just filled the ceiling boards and dropped through!- hahahaha
LOL- trust me it looks BEAUTIFUL! hahahaha( i just close the door!!!WAHAHAHA) - the rest of the ceiling is now that patchy off white STAINED look! hahahahaha. Well it will soon be new again! I used my weathered frames that are in store too.

And this is the little man that gave me my colour inspiration for the Old Festive Cheer kit- Man this camara is AWESOME- this is a FULL 12x12 LO- and just look at the size of that photo! And it's PERFECT!! Crystal clear! WHOOHOOO- ( just to let you know this is default settings- haven't even tried looking at all the options yet-hahaha)



Colleen used some of my grab bag ( Still on Sale but not for long!) to come up with this beautiful LO! Remember tomorrow is Friday- and after the weekend its GONE and up again separately at FULL price- so check it out here to make sure you don't miss it!


Man How gorgeous did this come out! And That's it for now- LOL, there's some new stuff coming up tomorrow- so make sure you pop in to check and now I'm going to find a HUGE MUG of Coffee before my poor hubby comes home and I have to breathe on him- ROTFLMAO! Hope you all have a wonderful day- hugs and loves Kim

WATER AND MORE WATER

OMG!! ROTFLMAO- My Spare-room has been *cooked!*- LOL. I don't know if any of you will remember as it was when I had just first started blogging- but we had a problem with my geyser and the thing threw water around the roof that leaked through the ceiling boards all over the house??- Hell yeah- well that WAS NOTHING! whaahahahahaha-

*history*- We bought an OLD house and got a building contractor to renovate- I chose new taps (the single lift and twist ones) that would need a NEW high pressure geyser- LIke DUH?- Ok I like a good shower too you know- so please go ahead!- UHUM- and so the story gets messy- we had leaking pipes in our Linen closet!!! - the toilet wouldn't flush etc- so the builder FIRES his plumber contractor ( but not BEFORE he had installed the NEW geyser-) UHUM- New??- well that's another bone of contention today- seems its 2 years OLDER than I was let believe!! ( not like I climb in the roof to check you know- it looked shiny- ROTFLMAO)- so after the FIRST mess- I phone the builder who sends ANOTHER plumber- who say's he fixed it- ( stuck valve!!!)- LIKE HELL JA!


Last night Wayne had just got home and we had some slight rain in the evening and we were chatting in the kitchen when it sounded like HEAVY RAIN- Hello- we both look outside and UM_ the sun is shining- BOTH AT THE SAME TIME- shout OH SHIT and run like looneys to the bathroom area just in time to hear the EXPLOSION!! NO LIES!! LOL, Wayne doesn't even look he just carry's on running ( quickest I've seen him charge in YEARS!LOL) to find the MAIN tap outside to turn the water off-

I'm looking STUCK to the floor in the passage staring at this HUGE HOLE in my spare room ceiling! Water is SHOOTING out in a SHEET!!! And it's boiling HOT- the whole room is steaming up- so NO WAY'S IN HELL- am I running in there to save all the stuff in the way! LOL- Wayne gets the water off but the thing still takes a while to eventually get to a trickle!! MESS PEOPLE!!! BED, BOOKS,CHRISTMAS PRESENTS on the BED!!! ARRRGGGHH- actually just about everything in there is WET and COOKED! LOL

We do the general *drag outside* and push everything around out of the way-LOL. But Um now we have NO WATER and it's now 7pm- Cut a longer story- we eventaully figure out how to get water to the kitchen but no bathrooms! HAHAHAHAHAHA- so of course I'm teasing Wayne now about flushing the loo in the morning after his morning *sh-t*! WAHAHAHA- He had a BATH in the SWIMMING POOL this morning at 5.30am! With shampoo and soap mind you-LOL. And trust me we have an elevated garden- so the neighbours if they were awake would have had a WONDERFUL VIEW! ROTFLMAO- I wasn't so brave and have just *washed* in the kitchen sink!! hahahahaha- Feel gritty and sticky and couldn't wash my hair- which I DO EVERY DAY!! And there was a BUCKET placed next to the loo- compliments of my hubby too- WAHAHAHAHAHA-

The bank sent out THEIR plumber now to look at the damage ( house insuarance) and let me know that we were lucky to still have a ROOF! He said the geyser did NOT have a pressure valve ( UHUM!!!) and that it was under tooo mutch pressure- hence the spewing of it's contents- and because it just got hotter and hotter- it would have EXPLODED! Hell- thank Goodness Wayne turned the "main geyser switch and the water off"!!!!

So they will be fixing it today PROPERLY!! LOL-

* moral of the story*- the cheaper contractor is definetly NOT the cheapest in the LONG run!!

Hee hee- did you get this far- LOL, But I had to share as really cleaning your teeth and face then bathing in the pool is just tooo FUNNY! LOL!


Ok- Have you looked at my Designer bag yet???_ I cant' thank you all enough for your wonderful comments on the contents! Remember it's for both Commercial and Personal use. This LO was done by Croppy using some of the stuff in my bag! Don't kick ya self- it's 77% off the total value!

And I used some in this SECOND LO from our weekend away trip- LOL- ( thanks to Newlife dreams for the commercial use frame freebie)
So won't keep ya any longer as phew this was a long YAP today- hahahahaha.

OOOH Guys before I go- You have to go check out Bunny's new kit- called Watercolour Splash- it's GORGEOUS! Check it out here
And now the plumber wants me to turn off the electricity- WAHAHAHAHA- so got to go-
Here's the link to the matching QP that you got last week- Sending hugs and Loves Kim

And I knew yesterday that the usual Asprin was NOT going to take it away!- So after all the meds and most of the day sleeping- early to bed last night all I have is the *after dull ache* and a feeling of relief that the bricks on my head have gone! LOL

This week has really been an Upside down one with the trip- Wayne leaving for Germany and me with my migraine! Today I'm off to fetch my sons end of the year report- that's why I'm posting early- LOL. We need a tree topper for the Christmas tree Nathan put up for me yesterday! He even checked all the lights too- AGGGH, I'm so proud of him- But he was clever too-ROTF. Usually when we do the tree it's me that's re-arranging everything and telling him where to put stuff- so with me on my back on the bed- he had no-one telling him what to do! WAHAHAHAHA- and it's perfect! Thanks my boy!

And Jazzy's puter is fixed!! YAYAYAYAYAY! And she sent me this GORGEOUS LO she did using my Sparkles and some of my Party On kit-

What a Wednesday

YAY- I'm feeling 70 today- LOL, not 100- just 70!! Had a GOOD nights sleep ( in bed by 9.30pm- which for me is like the middle of the afternoon-ROTF) and woke up at 7am!! Feel like a new woman- except for the *man* with the darn bell in my head!! HAHAHAHAHAHA- My ear is still blocked and nose is still running but Oh man after feeling like I did yesterday- today is PARADISE!! hahaha-

Want to hear about the weekend??? HUH, HUH?- Well lets just say I was thinking it was DOOMED in the beginning- we were supposed to leave at 4am ( Wayne needed to sort out things before he left for Germany yesterday) so we decided to give him the time and leave in the early hours of the morning- UHUM- but you KNOW me right??- WAHAHAHA, Mornings I don't do on a NORMAL day- I heard the dogs bark and heard a faint shout - jumped up in bed and shouted to Wayne that everyone was here already- he sort of grunts and turns over and say's - It's not that time yet'!!! ( hahahaha- say's the morning person!) Well it was!!! EVERYONE was outside the locked gate shouting over the wall to let them in- because WAYNE had left his cell phone UNDERNEATH a pile of 'sleeping bags' he had thrown on the table just as we went to bed (12.20pm!!) and it muffled the alarm as well as the calls!!-So you can imagine- I was rushed to the shower while everyone GRABBED everything in a bag they saw and threw it in the bus- I ran out with dripping hair- no make up, NO COFFEEEEEEEE- Gee's! Torture a woman- REALLY!!! hahahaha- but it wasn't so bad- everyone was so excited that it was yapping one on top of the other and lots of teasing Waynes way about being LATE ( he's NEVER LATE- WHAHAHAHAHA)!!

We managed to travel about 2 hours before I told everyone if I didn't get coffee I would likely shoot someone- I was handed a BEER!! HELLO- it's only about 7 in the AM!!! COOLDRINK?, WATER?- err no - the cooler box the MEN packed while I was in the shower had NOTHING except BEER and a bottle of tequila!!!! GEE's WAYNE!!!! ROTFLMAO!!

And THAT is how the trip STARTED!!- I had the beer too! Was thirsty!! Ok the first sip sent gooseflesh all over but hey it was cold! LOL

And this is the first LO of us at 8.30 am!! They are busy working on new roads here and we had a 30 minute wait to let cars through from the otherside- no problem to this bus full of 'energetic overgrown teenagers- we open the doors- turn up the music and stretch the FUN WAY- we danced on the side of the road!! The car in front and behind us joined in too-LOL, Eventually people were sitting on their car bonnets/roofs and clapping with- hahahahahahahaha- I must admit- we laughed and felt like kids when we got back in the bus and everyone was waving and hooting as we passed!



These are my friends Charmaine and Roche - going for a * high five* as the car in front jumped out to join us- LOL.! I used my new Party On kit and funny it was perfect with the tones of everyones clothes ( you'll see more tomorrow-LOL) -

Check out the kit here- still 25% off for a limited time only-

And here are some awesome LO's done my CT team Using the Party On kit too- and we have 2 Guest CT members for Dec! Doodle and PK DOLL!!! Thanks guys!! MWAH

Home safe- but hardly alive

hahaha- Gee's I'm DEAD!! Feel like I'm 100 and then some! LOL. What an AWESOME weekend- it's an experience that was WELL worth the 12 hour drive back! hahahaha- Well ok 4 hours into the trip yesterday I wasn't so sure!- The 'bus' was like a morgue on wheels! The only thing coming out of everyones mouths were snores or drool! and the only uttered words were, "I need a pee"- Pass the water- and is there any FOOD?-ROTF!! I stayed awake to keep hubby company while he drove us home- *he's always the designated driver on the return trip*- well he's the only one we trust to bring us all home safe- which he did!! * Thanks Waynie*-

But I will have TONS to tell you as I bring up the photo's through the week! * some starting as early as 8.30am on the way THERE!! Oh gee's I couldn't laugh anymore by Saturday night- my stomach muscles were KAPUT! (finished-LOL),
