Muggy & Hot = Hardly any work done!

January 21, 2008

This title is so true.  It has been so hot the past few days that I haven’t managed to get much work done at all!  The house is a mess, I have lots of scrapping to catch up on and i really should exercise but muggy and hot def = nothing getting done!

Sorry that i haven’t blogged latley, we have either had guests staying, lots to catch up on or in my case for 3 days last week a horrible gastro bug and fever!  Luckly Richard was able to work from home so that was great.  Feeling 100% better now but just need to catch up on my lack of energy!

Friday we had a friend arrive from Hamtilon for the evening.  Ange was off to pick up a friend and her son from the Airport first thing Saturday morning.  We had just finished dinner when she got a txt to say that they had been off loaded off the plane.  Turns out they were overbooked so a Mother and 8 year old got off loaded in LAX for the night.  To save having to go back to Hamilton for the day we all went out Shopping and then Ange stayed Saturday night and picked them up Sunday morning.

Sunday we headed around to Lisa’s house.  I had made the big decision that when she started losing her hair due to Chemo that I would cut mine off as well!  Well we were going to have a head shaving party but it had started to come out quite a bit on sunday so we came home and shaved my head and she shaved hers.  Here are before and after pics.



I am actually really enjoying having short hair.  It is sooo hot at the moment even with hardly any hair so I can’t imagine what it would be like with lots of hair.  Have saved some of the hair and with these and a few in between pics I am going to do a layout!

I have a friend (david’s old babysitter) coming over tomorrow morning to scrap so that will be great.  She looks after 2 other boys as well a 5 and 7 year old so they will have fun here tomorrow as well.  My big goal over the next few days is to finish my layouts i started 2 weeks ago and take pics of them and upload them onto here.

A layout that I want to start tomorrow is doing the January Sketch from the SE forum that Megan has loaded.  I think it is an awesome sketch!  I also have January’s kit so need to sit down and have a really good look through it.

Well, best be off Louise is poping around for a bit this arvo so need to try and get some housework done before hand as we will probably chat non stop once she is here.

Also looking forward to a 12 hour scrap crop that I am hosting on Saturday 02nd Feb.  Can’t wait!  To those reading that are coming i have some great surprises for you!

    Debbie, you are one of the most amazing people I have come across! I don’t ‘know’ you but from everything you do for others, I am in awe. You are a true angel. Thank you for inspiring me to be a better person and to think of others. I need to take myself out of my comfort zone and do more. You will be blessed in so many ways. (HUGS)

    Wow, you are one supportive friend. It really touched me reading about what you did for your friend.

    I lost my most of hair around this time last year over a period of about 3 or 4 months. Not chemo though. Eventually was diagnosed with an auto immune disease called “Non organ threatening Lupus”. It took me until about late August to have the few remaining strands shaved (wore a hat all the time!). First going about a number two. A couple of weeks later I took the plug and had a number zero.

    It eventually grew back in stages. By early January I had a full head of hair except for one patch. Fortunately the patch is in a place it is easy for me to cover with the rest of my hair without looking like one of those old guy’s combovers, lol.

    Anyway, have enjoyed reading your blog. You are an inspiration and a true friend to your friend. 🙂
