Masters 2010, and other stuff...

Well the cat is well and truly out of the bag... I have been chosen as a Scrapbooking Memories Master for the next 12 months ! I am truly humbled and honoured to have been selected, and I look forward to the journey ahead.
A huge congratulations to the other girls chosen - some of my favourite scrappers !!!

Photos to come of my amazing boy Jacob!
We have just returned from a week in Bendigo, attending the National Athletics Championships.
Jacob jumped an amazing PB of 4.74m to take the silver medal in the U10 Boys Long Jump.

I attended the funeral of my beautiful niece Laura, last week, and it was one of the hardest things I have ever done. Whilst the service was lovely, I really don't want to have to do that again. I tried hard to be strong, but it was just too sad. Tina and Matt are as well as you could expect under the circumstances. Thank you to my wonderful friends for their support over the last few weeks.
You know who you are ! :)
