Happy Birthday Simon

A big Happy Birthday to my hubby (for yesterday), who spent most of it in the hospital.
We go to leave at about 1:30pm yesterday.
Diagnostic - Grumbly appendix ( and ya thats the medical term) So basically his appendix is 'almost' ready to come we got sent home, since he was not in anymore pain.
The docs said we just have to wait for it to happen again, then they will take his appendix out! ahh dum, so we have to do this all over again!

Anyway on a nicer note, we are home, he's tired, but ok. We still got to go out for dessert, so heres a pic from that;

So now on to a hopefully more normal week!

Sick Hubby

Today has ended up being one dramatic day!
My husband is in hospital with excruciating abdominal pain, and the doctors do not know what it is. It could be his appendix, which is most likely, or his kidney stones..or some illnesses that i forgot the name of. So he's in for the night, and will probably have keyhole surgery tomorrow afternoon. But you want to know the worst thing..Its his birthday tomorrow, and he is going to spend it in a hospital bed and\or in STINK!! we have to cancel our birthday plans now, which he is not very happy about :(

So yeah thats mega stink, so i just came home from the hospital now, have been there since 1pm with him. Spent 4 hours in the emergency room..and and the rest in the ward. He had been in the emergency room since 11am with his sister..thank goodness she was there to be with him..but yeah, thats my friday, now i have to spend all my saturday at the hospital..on his birthday..o man how gutted he is.

Prayers would be they can finally figure out what is making all the pain and fix it.
Not that much to ask i think :P

Thanks all.

Finally finished my project

Well i have finally finished my project :)
I think it has turned out pretty cool, too bad our walls are totally UGLY!! They would look better on a light grey wall..i think.

Well here is some pics of them;

So thats my i will need to get another one..hmm perhaps i should finish one of my many paintings that i have half done, and lost interest in.
Well this week has gone by so fast, work has been busy and quite good actually. We are waiting to hear back about Simons 'possible' job, apparently we should hear back in wednesday. Fingers crossed he gets it, then we can finally start seriously saving for a house :D

We are off to a farewell party tonight, some friends are jumping the ditch and going to ah well..Australia's gain haha

Im off, night all.

Bedroom DIY and various rantings

I have a new project that im going to start soon hopefully.
I am going to take photos of my husband and myself, and clearcut them so i can do something similar to this..

So i will do something similar to this but frame them with wooden frames - will probably dry brush them with white i think. Then i will print the portraits in black on white, but i still need to take photos of my husband and me..hmm..that part might take a while lol. Then i will put this clay heart my friend got for me from a local artist in the middle of our faces hehe

But yeah thats what my newest project is, im pretty excited :)
Hope it turns out ok, and will mask our hideous wallpaper :S

Found the idea here: Design Sponge
(Oh and of course our bed is not that fantastic..i wish!)

On another note, we are in the process of 'maybe' looking for another rental property, because the tenants below us are just tooo noisy for us, i like to go to sleep at 10pm and not have to go to sleep to the sound of chris brown UGH! And various other problems with them..
My dream place would be: A small-medium size 3 bedroom house, with a yard, a veggie garden and a garage (def need the storage!) And parking for visitors..lots of sun, trees, roses and a modern kitchen and clean bathroom. I know its a lot..but i want to be somewhere im comfy in while we try and save for our own home :) (which seems like it is going to be like forever away!!)

So i will continue on my search for a nice AFFORDABLE place..ugh its all about money :( i hate it..i wish it was free..or WAY easier to purchase your own home, its so difficult, like really who has $40,000.00 just sitting around, not me!! :(

Well enough of my rantings, will potter on with the rest of my week..hopefully my hubby will get a job, like real soon, coz that would be sooo amazing!!

Thats all my thoughts for now :D

Here is my Secret
It is very simple

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly
What is essential is invisible to the eye

Well this week has gone by quite fast, work is fast and i like it :)
Lots of design and new challenges and all that jazz.

Have a wedding this that's exciting, one of my old friends from church.
I need to get a fringe trim before i go though, my fringe is so long i can barely see now haha..but im not sure if i want to keep my straight bangs, do i want a side fringe again?? Hmm, i think to my husbands dismay, i will keep my straight fringe for now :P its easier than a side fringe, no need to sweep it across your face all that's annoying.

Found this sweet recipe on The Kitchen Sink blog, for Sticky Buns - i can taste the caramel goodness now..mmMMMmm
Think i will make it on Fri night :D
Doesn't it look Divine!!

So this is my challenge for this weekend, a bit of baking bliss..i just have to think of who im going to share these with..hmm..

I better get back to work..need my morning tea break coffee, gosh im so exhausted, good thing its almost Friday! :)
