Formally panicking

Ok, Matt's formal is tomorrow night and the suit hasn't arrived yet... deep breaths, it'll be alright, won't it??? Please tell it'll be alright, please...

He and his friends are hiring some sort of mercedes mini bus to drive them around for a hour(??) before the event. I have negotiated picking up his girlfriend to drop them both at a friends house, photos at Alex's house (I hope - assuming THE SUIT ARRIVES!!!) and then pick them up again at the end of the night. I have been banned from going to the function to take photos of them arriving (it's at Old Parliament House, perfect photo backdrops, sigh). I will try to get him to take our point and shoot camera, fingers crossed.


Anyway onto more important matters, I have managed to get a couple of LO's done. The first is for the Cocoa Daisy crop, using numbers as a design feature this time. I have finally managed to scrap some of Matt's party. As you can see the theme was 'silly hats" and all the kids put in an effort. My fav's were the pirate (he had the whole outfit) and one, not shown here due to catastrophic collapse, made from Lego, superb.

That's Matt and his girlfriend in the bottom right photo.

And I have managed to get this weeks Sketchy Thursday's sketch completed, I feel like I haven't finished one of theirs for weeks and weeks. Lots of Crate Paper (yummy) used for this LO.

Henry has his little green Milo Cricket outfit, so cute when you get half a field full of these and the other half with the younger kids in flouro yellow. Henry loves it all, and Geoff is enjoying having a child who likes a sport he does.

Forgot my gratefulness yesterday, so today I am grateful for

a) Matt's friends, who are just a lovely pack of kids, who don't complain that parties they go to are alcohol free and who give each other hugs at the end of the night.

b) I am grateful to Geoff for letting me indulge my hobbies without complaining too much, except when he wants to lay down in bed and must share the space with my craft supplies...

c) Meaghan's soccer team mates who win and lose gracefully, no matter what the opposition (or opposing parents!) say or do. All of the girls and their wonderful coach are very encouraging towards each other, which enables girls to pl;ay sport no matter what level of ability they are at. And for teenage girls, this is such a big step towards a positive body image and self confidence. Love that.


Have a great day and I WILL have positive news of the suit tomorrow...
