A spit, a class and a book....

and there's my weekend in a nutshell... lol

Yes I spat it big big big time on Saturday morning. Working full time I enjoy the 2 days I get to sleep in, but Saturday it was not going to happen. I had to get up and deal with the kids, etc, etc and meanwhile dh decided he was going to stay in bed.
This was after he had been on holidays for 2 weeks, hadn't done much round the house at all and also had slept in each and every day of his holidays AND after I had asked him to clean the house on Friday because we were getting a babysitter in Friday night to go out to tea. I did want the house to be clean.
But guess what, it didn't been done, so therefore after having a bad nights sleep, no chance of a sleep in and then having to clean house, go to work to clean the office there, and do all the washing, all before my class at 2pm I was definately NOT a happy camper when dh decided to stay in bed.
So guess what, I spat it big time and they all got the message!

But enough of that... over it! well until next weekend I guess when I have to do it all over again!

I did the Advent Calendar class over at Scrapbooking 4 Less on Saturday afternoon with Pippa.
Totally loved it and totally love the calendar. Can't wait till December so the kids can use it.

Looks great doesn't it!

But as the class was about to start, dh tried to redeem himself by coming home with the new Harry Potter book... I was going to wait for it to arrive at the library because I get the paperbaks.
Now that was torture... read the book or do the class lol.
But as soon as the class finished off I went, nose in the book. At 12.30am I decided I had better put it down and go to bed, but as soon as I was up this morning my nose was back until I finished it at 1.30 this afternoon.
Truly it was one of THE BEST books I had ever read. Lots happening and now I have to read it again to catch the little things I missed in the first read.
But no spoilers from me... but it really was full of a lot of surprises! And left the way open for many more books. I look forward to reading them.

And tonight Chelle and Lisa over at Scrap n Crazy kept us all on the edge of our seats waiting for the announcements of who got through to the second round of the DT competition. We all got through so it'll be fun to do the next challenge... a sketch and we have to come up with a challenge for the next CC over there... will have to do something totally crazy I think. lol
I don't think I have much chance with the amount of talent going for it, so I'm just having fun.

We're waiting for Nicholas to come home from Narrogin tonight, the bus isn't due in till 11pm which means they never left till late so I guess one of the teams got through to the final. I hope he played well and really enjoyed himself, but I think he's going to be one very tired little boy tomorrow, so I'm glad they don't have school and that his father is going away this week to Ravey.

Well that's about it really. Off to do some scrapbooking as I have Christine's photo to do for the layout swap so really need to get it done before I do the next SNC dt challenge.

Have yourselves a wonderful day tomorrow won't you all.
