My little bag boy


I have always enjoyed putting my pet cats in bags, boxes etc (sometimes much to their disgust), so naturally I was going to do the same with my little man.  Owen was standing next to my Doctors bag, which is designed for transporting the Stampin Up Bigshot and thought "I wonder if he would fit in that", well he did and looked down right adorable in it.  See for yourself.

Just Add Ink Scrap Challenge


I have been busy scrapping the many photos from our honeymoon, so I decided to take up the Just Add Ink Scrap Challenge for this month, Just Add Bright Colours.  I used the photos that we took at the Totem Poles we saw in Stanley Park in Vancouver, Canada, as they are very colourful.  Here is my page.

House Extension

The house extension began in late August, a week before I went back to work.  The Builder originally told us six weeks, which I didn't believe.  It is now late October and we are still going.  We had some issues at the beginning of the project and had to build a big retaining wall, which took some time to do and there was some bad weather as well.  The wall looks awesome.  Here are some photos of the house.  We need to take some more recent photos as the inside has been plastered and the outside has been clad.   But here are some of the progress to date.

The digging begins

I will try and get some more recent photos up soon.


Hello All,
Yes I am still here.  Have been very busy of late, went back to work in late August, have a house extension/renovation on the go and of course looking after our little man.  He had his first birthday in September.  I cannot believe that my little man is now one.  Anyway enough of the talk, I know you just want to see some photos of him, so here they are.  Enjoy.

This is Owen's first day at the beach, he enjoyed eating some sand.

Sharing a book with Pops, this is when we discovered that he liked to turn the pages.

Looking cute, as ever.
I hope that you have enjoyed these photos. Hopefully it won't be so long between posts.
