"giving love can heal and transform"
and the start of another financial year, so I'm swamped with the group certificates, paperwork, the profit/loss, paperwork, the trial balances, paperwork ... well you get the picture!!!
and the last few weeks have been a bit sad for me - one of DH aunty's passed away and one of my best GF dad passed away so a couple of funerals, lots of tears and some well needed tlc for lots of people.
and we have the wind down till the school holidays. We received the kids school reports on Monday and my word am I impressed with how they are going - made me smile (alot!!!). So as a special treat we may actually have a small holiday - yippeeee yeah - as well as a trip to the zoo and some parties thrown in there for good measure.
so the lovely Malinda and Ceci have tagged me, so here goes:
Here's how it works. Answer the questions about yourself. At the end of your post, tag another 4 people & post their names. Go to their blogs & leave a comment letting them know they've been tagged. Let the person who tagged you know that you have posted your answers.
My answers are:
Q1: Ten years ago.....I was 28 and working as a Personal Assistant for a Director at Scholastic Australia - absolutely loved the work and the pressure I was constantly under to have reports, schedules, financials, dry cleaning, lunches, absolutely everything organised!!!
Q2: Five things on today's "to do list"..... get my hair cut and coloured, finish off the Group Certificates, do a load of washing, start reconciling and entering all the data for the profit/loss etc, etc, etc, clean the house.
Q3: Snacks I enjoy..... cheese and wine (ok, so i know that's not a snack, but if you're eating cheese you need to have wine - lol).
Q4: Things I would do if I was a millionaire..... travel, travel, travel, set our kids up for life with uni funds, a house, and car and whatever else they need.
Q5. Places I have lived.... a small place called Georges Plains, Bathurst, Berkeley Vale (central coast), Gwandalan (lake macquarie) and where we are now just on the fringes of the Hunter Valley.
and I'm going to be a rebel and not tag anyone, so if you want to do it you can pretend I tagged you - LOL.
and I've been busy doing some Christmas in July bits and pieces for SnB - it's a month long of inspiration, games and fun.

and (oh, lots of ands today - just to annoy you!!!) I've done these, the "things you need to know" LO was for a free class that I organised for SnB - using of course some of the sort of new Fancy Pants products, I'm sure there's going to be a huge influx of amazing new products once the next CHA is underway!!! the 2nd LO is "in the beginning" for the BOM underway at SnB - using some of the new Chatterbox papers and ribbon and buttons and chipboard and things (just love the feel of the flocked paper - it's just sooooooo noice!!!).

Hope everyone has a great week and that if you're about to go into school holiday mode that the weather stays fine and you all have fun.

You certainly are busy, hope you get all you end of year stuff done asap and without to much hassle.

Given how busy you are with the end of year work I'm very impressed you've squeezed in time to complete a couple of beautiful LO's as well.

You are such a multi tasker.

Have a great week
