Catching Up

Well things have been a little bit busy around here with the beginning of the year and Gemma starting dancing again, Renae needing fancy dress costume for a 16th party, taking Lachlan out on Valentines day etc etc etc.
Last week was mainly spent organising my Scrappy Sunday planned for this coming Sunday 24th Feb. I just have some last minute bits to get this week and I'm done. There are still 2 spots left if you are interested in joing us. Just add your name here.
Last Thursday a couple of friends and I went to the opening of the new HUGE Ikea in Innaloo. WOW! Steve thought we were bonkers but to be honest we were in the first 100 or so to go through the door (I estimated there were a few thousand in line) and the whole experience just flowed - yes it was busy but they were very well organised in terms of heaps of staff to help you out, cold bottled water to have while we were waiting in line, maps of the new store and they now have fabric by the metre again which the old store did away with a few years ago now.
Loved the store and all the new "rooms" and mini houses to look at. The market hall is fantastic and very well set out. I was impressed all round except for the lady on the till in the restaurant (she was a little bit sour) but they have 24 check outs so we didn't have to wait very long at all.
Oh and yes I bought a few little bits and pieces! Just a few.
I had a photo shoot planned for yesterday but alas a couple of them are not well so we have postponed until Thursday - so I'm all organised for that and very much looking forward to it. I hope you are feeling better soon Jen.
I have this

and this
Arriving sometime this week!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay I cannot wait - I have waited a while for these now and well I am just so excited. Renae needs a camera for all her Year 11 and 12 assignments so she will be having my 350d and we will share the lenses......this meant I could have a new camera and lens....Yipeeeeee.
Better take kids to school - take care and have a great week!

Hi Sharon,

You will love your 400D, I love mine, I might have to chat to you more about your new lens once you have given it a go, your start of year sounds as busy as ours, I dont think any speed exists these days except flat out. Enjoy your Sunday, wish I could be there.
Take care
Trace.
