Today I'm nervous. Feeling a little sick. I bought a scrapbooking franchise last week, and now I have to organise classes, advertising, people to buy stuff. Freaking me out a little bit. I'm a nurse, I'm not a business woman. But I will learn to be a business woman. My stuff is here. So meet me there and buy something from me... if you want to. that is.

Monday morning musings.

Hi everyone.

Today so far has been pretty uninspiring. Did the grocery shopping, got Mark some more school clothes (8 year old boys destroy their clothes), and had some photos developed.

I'm pretty happy with the photos, just need to scrap now. But before I can scrap, I need to organise the house. We have a 'guest' at the moment, but on Wednesday night Mum & Dad are coming and Dad's mate Bruce. So Mark is moving into the scrap room. Dave should be leaving otherwise he is probably moving to another room. So we will be super full. I'm on arvo shift all week AGAIN. Hopefully Kathryn will be doing overtime today so I can have a friend :(

Man I sound miserable, but i'm not. Gotta get taht scrap room organised, see you later!!!!

I was just updating the profile..... what industry do you work in? For the life of me I cannot find health or medical or nursing or caring for people or whatever the hell you want to call it. Go figure. Its one of the biggest employers in the world, every village or group of people need some form of health service or at least want it.... why is it not on the list??????????????
Hello Microsoft people you are just plain weird, no wonder we choose to use Linux!!!!

Actually today.


I'm out here in a new blog land, shifted all my entries from the old one over here. I don't actually post very much, but when I do, gee I'm an interesting person.

All this so I can post comments on my baby sister's blog.

Well I'm about to go to work - for another afternoon shift, I only have 4 this week and one morning shift. This system has got to change.

Dave Palmer is visiting at the moment, working on Telstra stuff (boohiss), its not nearly as bad as I thought it could have been. Marky is pretty happy, he is into running around at the moment. Parents are coming up next week (YIPPPEEEEE)

Got a few family photos today, they are very nice, will upload when I get some time.

The boys have gone out the the "4WD Beach" to normal people it is called "Stockton Beach" its the place where you take all visitors from interstate, so if anyone wants to visit us, keep in mind you will have to go to Stocko at some point.

Scrapping update

I've been scrapping up a storm recently. Not very happy with what I'm doing, but they are nice anyway. I'm entering the Every Day Moments (EDM) contest by For Keeps Magazine. It is making 24 LOs over 8 months.

The first month was Families. I did an old LO with a photo of my family when I was about 9 or 10 years old... horrible photo but a nice LO using Basic Grey stuff.
Thinking about #2 - this was a photoless LO inspired by the "Designing With" Calendar.

A new family - my sister, her husband and their daughter Sheena.

All of these can be seen on

The next month is about SNAPSHOTS....
I finally used the photo I took on this day back last year of Mark riding his bike.
Play All Day is the title using heaps of BG products and HS fuzzy rubons, my new favourite product.

Umm what else.... a Sheena shot, a close up of her looking extremely cute. Lots of pinks which I love to use.

Havent' done #3 for this month yet.

DId a cool page last night of Mark building and a total scraplift from the latest For Keeps Magazine titled "He doesn't send me flowers... but he..." and then you add your own things of what "my darling Jamie" actually does for me, when I'm grumpy with him, it can be hard to think of those things.... but today I'll try and remember.

On the home front.

Doing nothing at home...
Best do some housework, those "edges" really need a vacuum.
We went for a "superlong" walk yesterday, from our house to Jesmond and back... and when you are not used to walking, it was horrible. The dogs enjoyed themselves.
Soccer was cancelled due to rain. And its raining again. Can't hang my washing out.
Jamie and I had another fight this morning, getting a bit sick of that. When will our relationship mojo come back. I blame him, he blames me... this makes me think... its the both of us. Something we will have to work on - yuck.

I'm Excited

I got word today from my work that I have been funded to attend the "AGW" Australian Gastro Week. I know that sounds quite gross actually, but its a big honor, means my ward is putting some faith in me.
The hosptial (John Hunter) has paid for my post graduate course.
Now I'm going to AGW, which is often just a doctor thing, or Endoscopy specific. So to be a ward nurse and be fully paid to go is well really good. I feel just a bit guilty that I rang in sick for tonight, but then I would not have known about it.

Feeling like crap - again.

Hi all,

Once again,I'm feeling like crap, that is what night shift will do to you. Oh well... only two to go and then my little Marky comes home. I'm quite excited about that actually. Supposedly he has been very good, that is not my boy, he's a crazy nut!!! Maybe he's growing up.

Anyway, I love you Mark, miss you heaps and heaps.

Happy Birthday Jocelyn

Its my little sister's birthday today. I can't believe that she is 31 years old. They are having a nice little family holiday in a costal town... with a folk festival.. maybe Airey's Inlet.... I don'[t think that is it. I did finish module 1 of my course today, quite excited about that. The super boring one is out of the way. Now I get to learn about diseases... much more interesting.I remember its APOLLO BAY... I knew it would come to me.

Happy holiday and birthdays to Mark, Jo and Sheena (it is Sheena's 3 and a half month birthday - does that count??)

Doctor went very interesting, I can't have my lobotomy for my restless leg syndome, its in the same part of my brain that controls breathing, I think I still want to breathe at the moment. So a "sleep disorder clinic" is in order for me. How interesting. How do you sleep when you know you are being watched/filmed/electroded and unmedicated????????? As for my lumps, well he didn't really care about that. Got to see him next time I have an outbreak.

A big mad....

As you can see by what is happening below, I have not completely NUTSO with my uploading of scrap pages. That comes from FINALLY being taught how to do it. A bit too much time on my hands and not wanting to do my homework. Should have been finishing off module #1 of my Gastro course, but well, I'll do that tomorrow.

The other thing that will happen tomorrow, is I have to go to the doctor - a specialist - about my damned legs. Should cost us an absolute fortune, but I'm trying not to focus on that, I need to get better, and remain better. Speaking of better, I've got a cold, sore throat and pain in my chest, sort of like my lungs are cold - know what I mean??? Should get our new home gym tomorrow - could be trouble - and we're starting our diet tomorrow, Jamie's not too happy, but hey that's fun, I love torturing him. I asked him tonight if he'd eat cauliflower (no, I'd throw up), broccoli (no, I'd throw up), brussell sprouts (no, I'd throw up).... what vegies can you eat Jamie "potato, peas, corn and carrots" according to most diets (or good eating plans) they are the vegies iwth the most carbs, the worst for weight loss. Oh well, maybe I can get him to try some new things. But tomorrow's breakfast is 1/2 cup yogurt and 1/2 cup strawberries. Jamie usually eats 3-4 pieces of toast with honey! I usually have a bowl of muesli - I think we'll go hungry.Ok, better shut up now, will try to blog again soon!!!


I'm nowhere close to being an artist, but I love this page. Its about my life on the 5th July 2005. Its a total scraplift from someone out there, but I gave it my own personality.

"Tizzying up a tag"

This is one of my first attempts of making a tag a bit more fancy, as Kath would say "tizzed up". I have also used the very fashionable Kraft bazzill in the making of this page.

Great page

Horrible scan.... might have to retry that one at some point.
Well just to let you know, my scanning is not the best in the world, but here is my efforts at some later scrap pages.

For the details....Sheena's Early Smiles
Black Bazzill; Heidi Swapp Mask; White and gold acrylic paint; KI memories (I think) flower sticker; The slide.... umm not sure.

Your Eyes
Purple Bazzill; Urban Lily "Paper Me" patterned paper; A pocket designed by Elizabeth MunroeMM and doodebug rubons.

My favourite scrap page

Cheesy title, but I love this photo. The hidden journalling is all about how people have ALWAYS said that Mark and I look the same, and how in this photo I can see it myself. Poor kid!!! Or is that lucky me - he's such a spunk.

Isn't she lovely????

This is a great photos of young Sheena, I used a Heidi Swapp Mask for this one and am very proud of it.... if only I could find that mask... its in that scrap room somewhere.

Bored and Childless

Today is Easter Saturday!We have sent Mark off to Melbourne for the school hols... Jamie is not feeling well and - we're bored. He doesn't want to go for a walk, haven't got any money to go out for tea (not entirely true, but don't want to "waste it") and not much happening on the telly.

I'm gonna watch Doc Marten later and hopefully scrap a bit, but Jamie will probably try to annoy me.We're on a Prison Break festival... very very exciting show. Need to see that next episode.Nothing else to report. Other than, any ideas for bored people??????

Post Christmas News

Sorry I have been so lax in this here blog of mine.
For Christmas we got a new DVD player (yipee) and I got a digi camera... I am using it heaps and I love it.
Marky got a new guitar and cd player, he's a chuffed little guy. Today is the 23rd January and he is showing some interest in playing the guitar, knows his lessons are approaching and I think it is starting to sink in that it is not a toy, but something that he will have to learn and practice. He was looking through the "guide book" that came with the guitar tonight, and he is very keen on accessories, I do not think that a little kid needs or actually wants these accessories.... I just want him to be able to play at camp when he is in high school. I always wanted to do that, sit around the campfire and play the guitar and have all the other kids sing along... how cool would that be.
Jamie... well he got his fishing box - it is in the boat at Rocket's house so we haven't seen much of it.

The EXTREMELY exciting news is that I'm now an aunty... yes Aunty Christy to my dearest little niece Sheena Tara Geary, she was born on the 6th January 2006. A gorgeous shock of red sticking up hair and she smells so lovely.... I just want to jump back on a plane and give her a big cuddle. Jo is being a great mother, feeding well, cooing well and establishing some routine especially after those nasty child health nurse told her Sheena was loosing weight and got her all stressed out. I love you Jo and you are doing a FANTASTIC job. Here is a just a tiny picture of Sheena, Jo and Mum just minutes after the birth.

Showing off some scrappin'

The page below was done for a challenge on Blue Bazaar ( it was using the "Designing With" calendar that my mother got me for Christmas!!! I think it is pretty good.I used my "blue book" otherwise known a scrap book from long ago, it was all about my ambitions. I went through each year of the book and re-wrote what I had put down for my ambition for that year. I really don't think that being a nurse was on my list, I think it was there as a curtesy for a female job when I was in primary school. And then again in year eleven, when I came to realise that my high school marks would not make a doctor - and FOR THAT I AM GRATEFUL. I could NOT imagine being a doctor one iota.

Almost Christmas

I can't believe that it is the 21st December. Where did this year go? What a strange year it has been.
Presents are all wrapped under the tree. Food is almost thought out. Not really sure what to expect with Christmas this year. Spending it at the picket line. People dropping in, no family (will miss Mum & Dad, Jo & Mark, Margie & Frank and Connie & Paul) and it should be hot!!!
Hopefully it will be fun. I am very nervous actually, never have put on a Christmas dinner before.
Oh well.... I am excited as well. I wonder what Jamie has got me. I can't guess.
Talk to you after Christmas.

I'm quite excited

I am going to a scrap class tomorrow as I won the competition at the Scrapbook MegaStore.
Hmmm its called "Interview Me" and I'm sitting here waiting for an email of what they want me to have collated. Supposedly is questions to ask people what they think about me.
Could get some interesting answers.

I have started on my Blue Bazaar monthly kit - an altered clipboard, I think I used a little bit too much glue and its taking a while to dry, should look lovely, just what do I want to use a clip board for I do not know. Thinking it could be where I store my photos that I want to scrap next, or maybe be a shopping list holder. Not really sure what to do with these altered thingies. But time will tell.

October 5th - its hot

Yes this is what Newcastle is really like, IT IS HOT. I think it is about 30 degrees today, but we do not like the heat.

We all spent the night at the picket line last night (otherwise known as camping) lots of talk about one of the blokes who has been sacked supposedly for "unethical behaviour", but he is just being singled out as an example! Luckily he is not too stressed about it, as there is little basis for the dismissal.

This morning we went to the Baker's and took the kids to a the BMX track in Malaboolah. It was really cool. Mark was a bit cautious at the start, didn't like the starting ramp, but then thought all his Christmasses had come at once. Matt who is 10 did pretty good, but there were some "regular" guys there, all about 10-12 years and they were fantastic, really good jumps that the other boys wanted to copy. Matt could get a little bit of air, but nothing like he was hoping for. His dad Rocket then had a ride - on Matt's bike, did much better than I could do.,...Well after the "other kids" left, Jamie wanted a go, he got on Matt's bike (its a bit bigger than Mark's) and on the first hill over he went, a HUGE stack. skin off of his elbow and dust everywhere. Other than a slightly bruised ego he is ok. Big kids playing!!!

Then we went back to the Bakers, I watched Foxtel's FOOD channel for a while, had a snooze while the kids were playing happily and the blokes were sanding a car!!! Home now to watch the cricket - if only I could get Mark to change the channel, he thinks he is in control of the remote control and ABCKids is on. He bet me $5 that the next show was a cooking show - and it was, now I have to pay up, a cute kids cooking show (I have said I'll buy him a Cold Rock Icecream instead)

Well today was a bit MAD.

  • Spent an hour and a half waiting to see the doctor - and guess what, I'm stressed out!! Surprise surprise... that is what 4 months of a strike will do to you.
  • I have to start losing weight!!! Need to go down 3kg in two week. ARGGHHH keep you posted.
  • Mowed the lawn.
  • Jamie whipper snipped the whole lawn.
  • Jamie made a new table for Rocket's caravan.
  • Had a healthy lunch.
  • Rom spent the day (if you know Rom you know what that means)
  • Going to the pub tonight (maybe)
  • Went to the gym.

An official correction

The fish was a Bream!!!

Gone Fishin'

We went fishing in our boat on the Hunter River last night. Jamie caught a 32cm flattie and an (ewww) eel - sent that one back into the riverWe shall have the flattie for dinner tonight!!!

Mitch, Jeremy and Simon went their own boat and caught two (smaller) fish.When I finally get a new digital camera, I will be able to post a photo of my guys holding fish in the future.

*** This log was written with the help of my darling Mark ***

A personal thankyou.

To my darling sister who also helped out on the week that I was sick. She had to learn how to drive a 4WD and did so like a trouper. She is also a superstar... and the mother of my almost neice/nephew. So Jo the wonder-woman thanks to you!!

That is Jamie's red motorbike (oh sorry Kawasaki NINJA) in the front there, and that is him with his arms crossed standing in front of the caravan.

If you caught 4 Corners on Monday 26th September, you would have seen the exact same stance! Its his "I'm pissed off with life" pose. I'm getting used to it.

The Picket Line

Pretty exciting stuff. I can't even take my scrap stuff. I guess I could start my Christmas cards... but then they might get dirty.

Today - Wednesday 28th September - I think we are going fishing. I do not like fishing. But Mark and Jamie do, Mark just said "I'm not gonna be a wuss this time", and he'll attempt to actually catch a fish.

I started my Christmas notebooks for my workmates - there are 30 without even thinking about it - and I'm not including Endoscopy people!! Should I????

Last night Jamie played two games of indoor cricket, the second game he filled in for another team and they SUCKED. But they were in a much lower grade, strange to see the differences between his normal team and that one.

Went shopping at Coles in Lake Macquarie. What a beautiful layout of a store, it was really nice, onc that had been done up. Lake Macquarie or Warners Bay is such a posh suburb, and hmmm I'd like to live there, but it is quite far from Williamtown. Not thinking of moving (much) at the moment.

School holidays

Cold and raining.
Mark is bored. He and Jamie have gone off to help a friend with a boat. I stayed home to get some housework done. Really only tidied up a bit. Waiting for the car to come home so I can do my grocery shopping.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a nice day, have seen on my map there is a BMX track in Wallsend. So I shall go book in hand to this track and let the little fella ride his guts out.

Winter again

We've gone back to winter, although it is spring now. Cold and rainy.
I entered the LO competition at the LSS... hope that I win!! Oh and I tried to fudge my membership card, it expired on 15/7 and I said, oh yes that is in date.... but hey today is 5/9. An accidental oversight.
Went just a little bit mad at the local scrap shop today, I'm a huge fan of rubon and I bought just a couple, will go to my scrap room now and play with them, as I have the day off.


Jamie went to Brisbane today to protest outside of Boeing Headquarters... he left his phone on the bed side table.... can't call him. Hope all has gone well.

The Lantz Style Cough

I have discovered that my little son has inherited what I have termed "The Lantz Cough" a really loud barking painful cough. And the poor little tike has it. He has been coughing and sniffing all day. He does not like me to help him blow his nose anymore, but he doesn't do it correctly.

I'm totally in love with this show


I cannot believe it!

I am going to play netball tonight, I'm in the dunce position of Wing Defence (WD) but its netball just the same. I shall report to you my score later tonight!!!

I got my prize from Blue Bazaar today - a For Keeps Annual magazine - very nice and my new kit a little thong box (as in flip flops). Will have to see how that goes later on. Might have a mini scrap fest after NETBALL this evening.

End of August

I'm not very good at this blog thingie. Will try harder this week.
As this is a scrap blog, I should firstly mention my fabulous weekend of inspiration and actually producing something. It was my soon to be bother-in-law's birthday on the weekend, and its his party next weekend (YIPEE Melbourne here we come) and I made a mini-album/card for him. I'm quite impressed. Hope that he likes it.
Marky thought it was so good he needed one also, so his assignment at school was to make a passport with DOB, height, weight, circumference, nationality etc on it. So he got a little concertina booklet too. He thinks its wonderful (and his teacher will think I'm very creative once again).
I need to get stuck into some Father's Day cards, maybe one night this week. Can't tonight....
#1 and most important - can't be bothered.
#2 its CSI night - double episodes!!!

What else is happening.
Strike, strike and more strike..... Had a family picnic day that was pretty good.
I'm not liking endoscopy at the moment... not really sure what to do about that, have I talked myself into it? Not really sure. But I still really like my ward work. Very confusing, do I not like Endoscopy cos its new and I'm not sure what to do???? Any help would be most appreciated


Beginning of August 2005

Man its taken a long time to create a new page. Lots of stuff has been happening.The Boeing strike is still on. In its 11th week. I've had enough. Boeing take this as a personal challenge, sit down the the AWU and negiotiate, it can't do you any harm, may even get a very capable work force back at work and help my relationship at the same time (no need to worry anyone who is reading, but its not pleasant to live in a "stressed out" household.)Started working in the endoscopy department this week. Don't like it yet, but it will grow on me. Luckily I can go have lunch at my "read ward" to regain some sanity and face the afternoon. The clickiness of that group of women is quite phenomenal... and do they welcome new people - oh no that would be too hard.... make them feel like helpless pathetic people who don't know a damned thing, that will make them feel like better people (my apologies to anyone from H2 who may be reading this at some time in the future, just remember that new staff are your friends, not the enemy).Stop the rant now. Anyone who has taken the time to read this, please also go to and voice your protest as this may get my darling Jamie back to work, sooner rather than later.Thanks for reading.

Finally back at work - 21 June 2005

After two, almost three weeks of feeling like total shit. I am actually going back to work tomorrow.
I have had two trips to the emergency room.. and multiple trips to the doctor.
Thankfully Mum has been up here to look after me, she is a superstar.

Feeling ill

I have the beginnings of the flu, and I don't like it. My throat hurts and one minute I'm hot the next I'm freezing. But hopefully will be all better next week.
I actually did a bit of scrapping today also. Did the cover for Mark's circle journal... a gorgeous little tin that I have titled "Mark's What I Like to do Tin" I have used some striped paper (scrunched up and then sanded, then ironed) and some coloured rubons... the size of the tin fits 4.5" x 5" paper, cut them off and rounded the corners... should be lovely once its done its trip around Australia and all the kids have done their pages. Its through Blue Bazaar (

I also did a scraplift (read copy) of an Elizabeth Munro page, its from the first Friedrich's Ataxis Ball Jamie and I went to in 2000. There is a lot of ribbon and will put up a piccie of it when I can figure out how to do that.h

Over Achieving for my son

I wanted Mark to have a good "speech" today so I made a mini album about our Christmas for him to take to school. It was his first formal presentation about celebrations had to be one minute long.... it was a very lovely mini album. The other kids bought in jelly beans for everyone, some bought in stickers to make the presentation more interesting. I saw the teacher tonight who has said to me that I have set the bar very high and suggests that I don't go to so much effort - but thought it was lovely just the same.

Night Duty

Well who wants to know, I'm in the middle of my two night shifts and I feel like CRAP. Didn't get enough sleep due to Jamie ringing at 1.30pm to see if his computer stuff had arrived. Can't he wait until 4pm??? I wanted to chat to him in the middle of work last night, but decided that calling him at 3am would not be a nice thing to do. Luckily all went well last night, no crazy people, no bleeding or shitting people!

Mark the super-soccer star is doing good. His team "The Shortland Egrets" its some water bird - go figure lost last week, but they played well just the same. Its the cutest thing in the world, a little boy with no front teeth in his little uniform, black and white, like Collingwood... very stylish.
Anyway I had better go and get dressed, do my dishes and all that boring stuff... then MAYBE I can scrap.

Starting on Friday I have 5 days off, we have a work get-together on Saturday night so other than that, I am scrapping like a superwoman, feel the need to express myself.

4 May- Jew Fish

Jamie and his friend Bruce caught a 87cm Jew Fish last night. We shall have it for tea, will let you know how it tastes! That damned beginners luck, starting to get a bit annoying.

23 April, a very productive day

  1. Sanded the walls in the spare room. Very dusty work, but satisfying.
  2. Called the President of the Soccer Association. No idea where Mark was playing today, do you know where Walker Field is behind the Sharky Hotel!!!! Well we found it.
  3. Washed walls with sugar soap Disgusting feeling stuff, but walls are now clean.
  4. Mark won at his first junior soccer match. Very exciting stuff, we have the whole game on video/DVD let me know if you want a copy. He played goalie for the second half and learned that he is supposed to catch the ball, not watch it go through. Learned that I can be a very vocal soccer mom (as the yanks put it!!)
  5. Put undercoat in spare room. Only 6 months after we initially started this room, the undercoat is now on - it takes 16 hours until we are able to put another coat on, and I'm covered in paint drops that require turps to get out.
  6. Baked a cake - a nice lime flavoured cake, my not so new favourite flavour,
  7. Now I'm off to scrap. I'm in the middle of scraplifting a beautiful design by Chris Millar. It is about my sister Jo. I'm quite impressed by it.

A new day

Wondering what will become of today.
It is almost 8am and Mark is not yet awake!
Jamie is asleep on the couch with a fever (he thinks its Ross River Virus) He has a low grade temperature and is freezing, so there could be some sense in that diagnosis - as it is currently in Newcastle and is a mozzie borne virus and we have HEAPS of bites at the moment.

And I made $150 in sales at my party, there were only 4 people present at the Crafty Kids Party, and I must admit, the demonstrator was not to my liking, but someone finally showed me embossing... yes I know you have mum, but she did it with my toaster!!! So that is what I bought and embossing pad, embossing powder and two stamps, one of a basic flower and one of a clock that I have wanted for some time.

Can't Sleep

Well now everyone that is a lie. I am recovering from night duty still, so I was in bed at 8pm as Jamie was playing xbox (and I really just wanted to go to bed). I wanted to watch my programs but I missed all of Desperate Housewives (should have taped it as well), Cold Case and Law & Order... unconscious sleep until just 2am. Still very tired though.I went to the library this afternoon, got myself a couple of new novels - crime ones, just to be a bit different. Some books from the Premier's Reading Challenge for Mark, so now we only have 32 to go!!! The library was very nice and put stickers on the outside of the books if they were from the list. I also got Mark a book called "What Dad's can't do" it is very cute, lines such as:Dad's cannot cross the road without holding handsDad's can only push they can't swing.Dad's are very bad at playing hide and seek - kids can always find them and they take age to find you.Dad's always loose at checkers, cards and every other game.It had Mark in hysterics... and Jamie said that isn't true (well it is for "normal" dads not super competitive ones such as Jamie)The library was doing a purge of old magazines, so I got one about boats, fishing, motorbike and a Mad magazine for the boys. I got a couple of Who Weeklys to remind me of old times, a Cosmo and the Oprah magazine. Good when you don't have to pay for it.Back to bed I go and I shall attempt to stop scratching my 20 mozzie bites on my legs

An Update

There is no update as yet...Still needing to do some housework.


Welcome - I'm moving over from my other blog - so here are the posts from there (in reverse order)
This is my first attempt at publishing a blog. I am not very sure what I am supposed to write on here, but I shall let you know what my purpose is.I want my family to know where I am up to in my life, what I'm doing, what Jamie and Mark are doing.So let me let you know, today I am off to the school for some canteen training, meeting some of the mothers from the school, then I'll go to the gym and then do my vacuuming. Yes that is correct, I have a very exciting life.So welcome and I hope that it becomes more inspired as time goes along.
