I’m exhausted and it’s not even noon.
Today is my Anna’s birthday! She’s still staying with us, so the lucky duck got breakfast in bed. There is 8 years difference between Anna and I. The age difference has given me the great privilege of watching her grow out of the terrible teenage years and into an adult that I have great respect for. Welcome to your twenties Anna Spanner. I’m so glad you don’t have the urge to eat cereal off the carpet with the cat anymore. Benson (Pa’s husky) and I have also had a trip to school this morning for pet show and tell. Mog thoroughly enjoyed showing off her part-time puppy and I enjoyed laughing at Holly as she attempted to wrangle an over-excited pup in a classroom of over-excited Prep/1/2’s. All in all, everybody (including the dog) was well behaved. There were some great packages awaiting me when I got home. First and foremost, a package from Kellie over at give a girl blog! I have to say I am absolutely in love with her stamps! Kellie does a really fantastic job of putting together stamp sets that you will use over and over and over again. I am particularly fond of the My Buddy stamp set. Both CJ and I take a ton of photos of our cat, Mica, but until now I have never had stamps to go with them. DO NOW! I also plan to use the doggie stamps when documenting Benson’s trip to school. Seriously, do yourself a favour and go get yourself a set, any set, they are all great! I also received my Pier order from Simon Says Stamp. I know the Pier collection is off-season for us Aussies right now, but it’s just too cute to pass up and I can’t wait to play with the slides and tile letters.
On a technical note, you may have noticed that the site has had a little down-time lately. Well… the reason, my lovely readers, is because my little group of visitors has grown exponentially. This is the first month I have ever exceeded my substantial bandwidth. CJ and I corrected the problem for the moment and we are working on a long term strategy for the increased traffic. I do want to thank you all though. I love, love, love reading your comments and interacting with you. I want this site to be awesome and to be a place you want to visit every day.
