We're 'outa there'
Oh my goodness, it's been ages. I hope you didn't give up on me. Life took on a full speed ahead mode, but hopefully things will settle for a while.
We have now moved house, so I am living in bedlam atm, very slowly getting some organization into the new house. It must have taken us a week to move. I finally finished cleaning the old house at about 11.20pm on Monday night.
The lead up was huge also, I seemed to be collecting boxes for weeks prior and the moving date was always changing. Everything seemed to come at once, when we finally got the word we could move, I had the preparations for the Scrapboxx retreat, my teaching commitments at Scraptivate, along with whatever other scrapping and non scrapping commitments I had, as well as working. I feel I have been chasing my tail for a couple of months. Hopefully things will settle down from now on.
I somehow managed to hurt my back during the last end of the move and have been crippled since Tuesday afternoon. So that has put a stop to progress here in the new place. I am not one for running off to the doctors easily, (for myself anyway). But I got such a fright, the pain was unbearable. I was more worried about work than anything else because I had had some extra time off for the move. Poor Natalie. (the joys of running your own business,,, hey!!!!)
I have had no time on the computer which doesn’t matter anyhow as we had no internet access. Max has been sending emails for me. I won’t go into it but we ended up having no home phone or internet for over a week before we moved and over a week after the move. It did have its benefits in one way; it meant that there were no computer distractions for Rick while moving, so he was a great help while moving, he also took a week off, I don’t know how we would of done it without that time.
The weekend before last was the Scrapboxx retreat, Max and I stayed an extra night down there as we were exhausted and didn’t want to drive 4 hours home to Perth tired. The classes were a huge hit and Max and I learned a couple of hard lessons as to how much we put into our classes and what we get in return.
We got internet access yesterday and now there is a rush for the computer. I will post some more over the next day or so.
Sending Love,,, Audrey xx
