remember feelings.....

people may forget what you said, and people may forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel......

what a way to start the day......

nothing like starting the day with a swim......this morning i decided to take zekky to the indoor pools, i'm a bit of a water girl, i could spend ours in the water.....i'm pretty happy zekky loves the water too, he loves stepping of the steps and into the water, mummy leaves him for about 5 seconds before i pick him up and he always comes up smiling......or sitting on the pools edge and singing humpty dumpty sat on the wall, into the water head under and he comes up laughing......
if i had a swimming pool i would prob swim most mornings {slightly heated through the winter}
what's the one thing you love to do most mornings????? image via here

my first award....yay!!!!

thank you to simone from honey and fizz for sending me the sunshine award
my very first one.....
ok so i have to tell you 7 things you wouldn't know about me. 
i do have a list of 25 random things about myself {only because i had to do a list awhile ago} i'm not that into myself hehehehe.........but will contain it
to 7 and maybe share the rest another time......hehehe

1. i love doing washing and hanging it out, but can't stand folding and 
    putting it away

2. there is nothing like jumping into a bed with clean sheets and made
     nicely like your at a hotel.....i do like a bed made just sooooo....

3. i feel at home in my heart when i'm at the beach

4. i have too burns on my body, both from showing off in front of 
    boys one when i was 7 {hot water} and the other when i was 14 

5. if i'm too hot and can't cool down and your around me.....EVACUATE....

6. i'm a qualified hairdresser and love anything to do with hair/makeup 

7. i love meeting new people, and listening to their journey's how they
    became the people they are today...especially old people

so now you know a little bit more about me i do have some funny ones but think they might scare you off hehehe......maybe in a few months and i'm so sorry to say i don't have anyone to pass it onto as i think everyone who follows my blog has done it already {if i've missed anyone please let me know}.......again thanks simone it is nice getting to know you all through blogging, have a great day everyone

i have a dining table

look what i got just last night my very own dining i have never owned my own dining table, we have been using a tressle table from bunnings for the past 7 years and before that, we were using my parents while they were overseas.....

i was on ebay the other night looking for old vintage bikes and thought i'd have a scroll through the dining table, i saw this and it was perfect, i won it from a very lovely lady for $65.00......we are going to strip it and paint
it white, even though i don't mind it this colour {which surprises me} i do love the legs on it.....

my only dilemma is that my louie ghost's don't quite fit underneath, thank goodness i have a handy man who is gonna fix this problem.....
anyway i wanted to share my exciting new purchase, makes me feel like a grown up hehehe......what do you think???? and any advise on a good paint, i have primer already?????

hello hello i'm back

wow what a whirlwind weekend, i've been in brisbane working for my sis-in-law {victoria} at the reed gift fair if you've never been to one, check it out it is fun and there are so many things you can buy at cost....i thought of all you ladies who are into decor and furnishings, you would of been in heaven, of course i had to purchase a few goodies myself, i love cereamics and spent most of my time in the homeware section...
if anyone went to the gift fair we were the stand selling pebblemats they are fantastic and for me the bonus is never having to wash a bath mat again....
i've missed catching up on what you've all been up too and seeing all your wonderful finds/news/products etc, although i can't complain i did stay in a beachfront apartment in mermaid beach was lovely.....hope your all having a wonderful thursday
