We have had some lovely relaxing days of late. Today is Melbourne Cup - a famous horse race that rightly or wrongly provides us with a day off - who am I to argue? Last weekend Den and I celebrated our anniversary - 12 years! My how time has flown! We had a wonderful weekend of ...
and a yummy dinner out at a new Indian restaurant. The kids were very tolerant of the spicy food. Hugh wants to go back, not for the food but because the waitress put the serviette in his lap! He felt like royalty! Of course the Princess took it all in her stride.

Now let's see .... Den surprised me with my first ever ipod! I thought I was getting one for Christmas so Santa came a bit early! This is waaaay cool! Having loads of fun with the video camera and vidcasts!

And of course you ask what did I get Den ... hmmm ... beer and chips! LOL! Yes! His favourite Japanese beer! Does that count for something? No ... I guess not. Ipod ... beer!

So I have loaded some songs for my girl on my ipod. This is such a cool album, so many great classics. And I can tell you how proud I am that Katie can name the movie it is from within the first two bars of the song! Mama Musical here says, "that's my girl"!

Now ... let me get you in on a great bargain. Ange has this super "grab a bag" for Two Little Pixels birthday this month. But it's only available the next couple of days.

And have a look at what you get in this bag! (click on all images for credits) The coolest templates! Papers! Word art! Great for birthdays/surprises. Absolute bargain!

At the Rocking Girls blog there is some more free word art up for grabs for the lastest Spotlight. Use it and complete a page to go in the draw to win a GC to Nina's store.

The latest issue of ScrapStreet Magazine is out. With another fun FREE kit to play with.

Last week was a HUGE week for Sue Cummings Spotlight (I am still in recovery). Here are the final two pages I completed.

Over at Oscraps this week there is LOADS of fun things going on leading up to DSD day this coming Saturday. Now this I thought I really must tell you about. You really have to see all the FREE goodies you can collect on the blog hop from some major players! Be sure to check it out.
Enjoy the rest of your week everyone.

OH happy anniversary Helen!!! Wow, we are only 5 years together and that already sounds for a long time hehe. How sweet you got an ipod (I don't have one too and not missing it, hehe) and Japanese beer??? Never heard of that, we only have the Dutch offcourse and some Belgium beers.
