Yep that is me at the moment Head is stuffed fuller than a cuddly teddy bear. Two weeks back at work and look at what happens - I get sick :-(
Oh well, tomorrow will be a better day, I just have to keep soldiering on.
Nothing to share, nothing to show - unless you count bags of used tissues as worthwhile show'n'tell'. Hmmmmmmmm I think not.
Back to bed for me. Thank goodness it is the weekend. Could not have faced work feeling like I do today, yesterday was bad enough.
Til next time

Ok so it isn't exactly a layout in a magazine but to me it is the next best thing - my name being among the 'Standout Readers' in the latest edition of Creating Keepsakes manazine. There is is - second column, third name down. YAY that's lil ol' me - Sarah Hemmings.
I tell ya, talk about an awesome boost after a few less than perfect 24hrs. I think I am having scrapping withdrawals. I started back at work last week after 3 1/2 months long service leave and I have hit the ground running. I was hoping for a smooth re-entry back into teaching but no, that would be asking too much. I have done nothing but clean up mess after mess, disaster after disaster and literally spent all of last week chasing my tail. I think I have corrected all the errors and have put things right again so hopefully things will settle down so I can try and get a little bit of creating done here and there.
Hopefully next time you stop by, there will be some creating.

On to other matters....
As you may have read in my previous post, I was contemplating going and seeing Sex and the City 2 last Thursday. Well I went and I have to admit that I LOVED it. OK I didn't love it as much as the first but OMG it was sooooooooooooo good to be back with Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte. It was hilarious, lots of laughs throught and while I understand why it didn't get such great reviews, I don't think it matters. Yes it was stylisied to the hilt and way OTT in places but hello, wasn't the TV show like that (especially in the final 2 seasons), wasn't the first movie like that??? Carrie and the girls are always over stylisied, that is who they are and that is what makes them, and the show and the movie, unique. I think the scriptwriter has been true to the characters and I can handle all the flashy clothes and stuff because to me that is what SATC is all about - waaaaaaaaaaaaaay over the top style. This is one of the things that has helped make it so unique over the years. If it was just your ordinary TV show, using your ordinary characters wearing everyday, ordinary clothes, it would not have had the same impact. So poohey to the reviews, a definite double thumbs up from me LOL. Also a huge thumbs up to an Aussie singer whose song was used in the closing credits and in the theatrical trailer - way to go Rikki Lee!!
Well I think I have taken up enough of your time today. Hope you have all had or are having a great weekend. Til next time.

This youngest boy of mine is such a dag and goof ball but he is so darn cute too!!
Nothing else to show or report today. Am about to head off and finally go see Sex and the City 2 (yes I know it copped a beating in the reviews but OMG I love love love love love anything SATC so I am going anyway) all on my lonesome. Who knows, I might be back later with more scrapping to show lol.
Have a great day
