i got a friend named Lee

My friend came to visit ..
packed his huge men tend to NOT pack light 
and jumped a plane to share my 43rd birthday with me...
i'm feeling the love ..
got to share the weekend with him and some longtime old friends
 from primary and high school :) always a blast ....
we had dinner with my folks and laughed our way thru 
3 days of much missed together time ..oh Lee
when ever i think of him or say his name ,
i start singing this !
Lee, Lee, Lee, Lee, 
Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee, 
We're talkin' fuckin' Lee. 
I had a friend named Lee, 
He cast a spell a spell on me. 
If me and Lee and KG could be three, 
Flyin' free Tenaciously, 
Skinny-dippin' in a sea of Lee, 
I'd propose on bended knee 
To Lee Lee Lee, Lee Lee Lee, 
Lee Lee, 
Lee Lee Lee, Lee Lee Lee, 
Lee Lee, 
Le-Lut-Le-Le-Le-Lee Lee Lee, 
Le-Lut-Le-Le-Le-Lee Lee, 
If me, and Lee, and KG, (that's me)
Could be three, (could be three)
Plant a tree, (plant a tree)
Just for Lee, (just for Lee)
Just for Lee, (Lee)
Just for Lee! 
Lee, Lee, Lee: ["Psycho" Knife Song style, 16X]

 hello bloggers hows things?
I'm in a transition time , which is always a good thing :):)
new job offer at work makes me Happpppppppppy
and gives me opportunity to grow and develop  in my first career of catering .
(which means completing my chefs ticket)....boooo------yahhhhhh
but I'm sort a super tired of carrying the weight of the family's financial concerns.
and I'm not really one to talk about whats happening but i don't really have a vent place
 and nobody really reads hears a good place to have a vent ....
and its been 6 yrs of full time work for me --prior ,with kids it was part time ) 
with no serious holidays since last year..(when i changed jobs)
and despite the reminders that everyone has to work ,its falling on Paul's deaf ears and over a period of years i'm at a loss to understand why its hard to work for the ones you love ...i don't seem to have a problem..i like a pay packet and giving to the ones i love . isn't it easy to work for the the ones who are supposed to mean the most well i think so and its getting me down..its making my heart very sad , and I'm sad for the kids for what they are missing out on .and then i think well Lisa maybe your all about getting stuff and its a money thing..but its not that .its about motivation and persistence and for love ..for Family...whats more important ? well not bloody me , that's for sure .pretty sad all round really ....grrrrrrrr ..vent over .
and now to make myself feel just a little better
i love these pics asti took ..sigh :)

 just a few layouts and a canvas im working on for a wedding in Nov
Peace and Love

October Long Weekend /Family Day 
Oh October,the end of another year draws even closer and for me it was a special little weekend,
even though i only had Sunday off :):(
Big thanks to the wonderfully talented Jo KKMF Kinder, for hosting a small scrap swaray on Saturday evening gave me time to throw together this little baby..been playing with this quote for a few days .
For the last 35 odd years the October long weekend has been a time to get together and catch up with all the crew , now in days of old ,that could be up to 100 or so relo's floating around -backyard cricket -bbq- and the Bathurst car race on the box..
This weekend ,torrential rain,bloody footy, and Qld vacations kept a bulk away ,but what does that matter when your gorgeous Nanna(mamma) is there ♥...i just love them all..big thanks to my Bro for actually coming to family day and then getting to the final as well.

Aunty Margret,Mamma and my mum Barb
