It's been a few weeks since I've posted anything on my blog! Lots has happened! Some I can reveal, and some I need to wait a bit before I can spill the beans :) (hint: notice anything different on my blog? maybe over <--------------??)
It's been a bad few days weather-wise here, lots of rain and local flooding, particularly in the next town over where The Man works. It knocked out our internet services on Sunday, and we only really got them back last night. Some roads are still closed, and weather reports predict that the rain will return at the end of the week. So it's going to be a wet February! I'm also trying to clean out my scrap room, and boy it is a BIG job (where on earth did all this stuff come from, and why can't I find anything??? LOL)
The Boy's birthday was on Sunday, and I have to share some piccies of his cake - I'm a bit proud of myself, particularly as I HATE cooking and baking and anything to do with it! I'm not good at it, I don't enjoy it, but I make a special effort every year for The Boy's birthday to make a special cake. I'll share that in another post soon.
Today I have a layout to share with you. This is another one for The Boy's Hearing Scrapbook, as it was one of the adventures we had while we were in Sydney for his Cochlear Implant surgery. This particular day we spent at a Railway Museum in Thirlmere, and took a ride on one of the trains. The train was double ended - the drivers switched to the back controls to travel back to the station rather than turn around. It was a bit of a rough ride, and left me feeling a tad nauseated but the boys had a ball! It was a special day, and included meeting a man who also had a CI who was very friendly and showed The Boy his "cool gear" and shook his hand. So uplifting at a time when we needed the reassurance most!
The journalling card and one of the tickets is included in the layout in a library pocket style holder.
