After all my exciting mail in the last week or so - today was a crappy day for mail. Got a bill from the real estate in Brissy for over $1000 and it said it was due today! Like they've got any chance.... rang them and it's all sorted now. Have I mentioned before how much I hate real estates??
My other bit of wonderful mail was a notice for jury duty... now ordinarily I don't mind doing it - have done it once before and kind of enjoyed it and it is my civic duty... blah blah blah. However, it's for two weeks starting from the 28th July - the day before my birthday. We were hoping to be visiting my Mum and Dad before the kid is born then, also I'll be 32 weeks pregnant at the time - surely that's good enough reason to get out of it?? Isn't it? Man, I hope so....
Have started doing this workshop with Samantha Kira, the first assignment was about finding your space and getting away from all your "stuff", being outside and creating with just a few bare essentials. Well, I didn't go outside but I did go upstairs in the lounge room and just used some different pens and oil pastels. Totally different for me - no photos or patterned paper which I normally use. I do like them though and I had so much fun doing them.
On another topic, yesterday was the first day that we have officially banned our cat from the upstairs of our house. Our cat is extemely moody and I just don't trust him to be around a baby without doing something to it. We put up our baby gate at the top of our stairs and shifted some furniture around downstairs so he has his old bed back to try and distract him from the fact that he can't go upstairs whenever he wants. Last night was he tried to come up and saw the gate and just kept meowing at us and looking at me with sad kitty eyes like he was saying "Why don't you love me anymore?". I felt so guilty, like I was doing something really mean to him.... kept thinking to myself "Don't give in, don't give in..". I guess I'm getting some practice at saying no before the real baby comes along.....
Bye for now!

Also had a bit of a play with some masking fluid on this one.... didn't quite work out like I thought as the masking fluid was a lot runnier than I thought it would be...
Did this next one a while ago... reminder to self - Glitter paint takes a LONG time to dry!
I like this next one cause it feels all light and airy - you can't really see but there are seed beads stuck in some of the circles.
Well, that's about it for today... BYE!!
