Do you remember....

Do you remember "Scratch 'N' Sniff" sticker?

Today I was out doing some shopping for some crafty type activity with the Kids for prep stuff for an activity we have coming up and I found these stickers. I can remember having these with I was a little girl!

Their were so cool, and to admit they still are!

Best Sister-In-Law!

On the 1st of July it was my Brother-in-law... Cookie's birthday.

Now with my sister and her husband, it's pretty easy to pick what to buy them for their birthdays...

Bath products- from the body shop or Lush

Book voucher

But this year for Cookie's birthday i wanted to get something different for him.
Now Cookie has a nice collection of Whiskey, it's pretty impressive, he has a shelf for it on their HUGE bookcase in their study, when i say HUGE I am it, it's floor to ceiling, wall to wall. Right in the middle of that wall is his collect... This is my addition to his collect.

I'm glad he liked the present. Even if it was two weeks late.
Happy Birthday Cookie!

On the hunt...

I am currently on the hunt for a good online bike shop which has good shipping prices...

Why.... because I am considering buy one of these babies....

Beach Bike Cruisers, Oh how I have fallen in love with you! And i want to get a little basket for the front of it and maybe even a bell!

I first fell in love with these bikes when I saw them appear on a few American blogs that i follow. And since i have joined the gym i have really enjoyed being on the bikes, and plus my personal trainer has banned me from the treadmill and cross trainer due to my foot injury, so the only things that he's left me with is the bike or rower for when i'm not working with him.

So... Question to everyone.... Does anyone know of any good online bike shops with good shipping prices to Australia??

Best way to start the day!

What better way to start a Sunday? Breakfast with two awesome girls!

On Sunday morning, bright and early... ok like 10am, that's early for a weekend! Ness and Lisa came over to make a yummy breakfast.

On the menu:
Poached eggs
Mango yoghurt
Kiwi fruit
Orange juice

Out come: YUM, YUM, and YUM, oh and very full by the end of it!

Couldn't have thought of a better way to start the day! great company, good conversation, lots of laughter, and yummy food!

Thanks girls!

The Count Down Begins!

This time next month, that is if she decides to make her appearance on time, I will have a bring new cute little niece!

I have been waiting 8 long months for the little girl, she's not even born yet and I have spoilt her already, half of what I have purchased hasn't actually made it onto here, just for the pure fact that I didn't get a chance to take a photo of the purchases before I gave them to my sister.

Another addition to the family, it's exciting and i can't wait!! Hand up to baby sit her any time!

Kari Jobe: You Are For Me

This evening I was reading through a blog that I follow called 'Playing Grown Up' . I read over a recent entry and fell in love with the video of a gorgeous song, and I just had to pass it on and share it with you!
The lyrics of the song is absolutely beautiful!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Interesting Surprise..

Today was an interesting day, I had two unexpected encounters.

The first one was a nice chat with someone at lunch time. This was the first time that I had really talk to this person, and they surprised me, they had noticed that I hadn't been around and was genuinely interested where I had been hiding and why.

Yeah for those who don't know I've kinda been in hiding for the past month and a half, haven't been home for that time period, I needed a bit of time to hibernate and review somethings in my life and also spend some time relaxing.

That person most likely didn't realise what effect on me that effect had on me but it gave me comfort and a bit of insight on somethings that had been playing on my mind.

The conversation was only a brief one but it made a big impact and now at the end of my day, looking back over the day in full, it makes me see that it was kinda in a way preparing me for the second unexpected surprise of the day.

As you know from the last post at the moment I am awaiting on a few packages to arrive in the mail. One thing that I was not expecting was a letter. That's right a good old fashion hand written letter.

Actually it was kinda freaky, cause this letter had been written on Monday, and on the same day I had written a letter to the same person. I wasn't about to sleep on Monday night, so at 1:30am after being in bed since 10:30pm trying to sleep, I got up and decided to get my thoughts out of my head and on to paper, and these thoughts just happened to turn into a letter.

That letter, safely sealed in a envelope with the address and stamp on it ready to go then continue to sit safely in my handbag. I had not forgotten to send this letter, I knew full well that it was there, but I just couldn't take that final step and drop it into a mail box. I had actually nearly talked myself out of sending the letter.

That was until I got my unexpected letter.

A letter that touched my heart and at the same time gave me a slap in the face as a wake up call. The letter was blunt and to the point. The letter was not long, but WOW did it hold a punch to it. Now don't get me wrong, this letter was nothing bad, but the opposite, it made me cry. It was honest and caring.

The best things come in same packages! It's amazing how the small things can effect you in such huge ways. Thank you.

Waiting for the mail...

The other night I did a little bit of shopping online. The other month I discovered Etsy and I fell in LOVE!! There are so many things that I would love to purchase from some of the sellers on here, there are some extremely talented people on there.

First Purchase: I made off Etsy was from a seller- EliseJoy, I first fell in love with her when i discovered her blog, she is an AMAZING and TALENTED person and it just shines through her blog.

This is what I purchased from her etsy shop....

When I first saw these two I knew that I needed and wanted them! So I brought them, and email from Elise today to say that they have been posted. EXCITED!!!

Second purchase: was from a very talented friend from Sydney, I love her artwork and as soon as I saw this piece it was love at first sight! Check out her facebook page- A Beautiful Pea-Green Boat and you'll fall in love with her too!

Third Purchase...
As you know from my previous blogs I have a love for books, so just adding a couple books for my collect...

Now I get to wait, and everyday when the postman walks into work, I cross my fingers and hope that today is the day that something will come in the mail. Snail mail is the BEST!
