Getting ready for the cold.

What do you think of my Kathamndu Store Hat Models? They were so funny, picture this. We are trying to find the boys new hats. Not really needed here in WA (yes even in winter) but In America in Nov and NZ to live, they will be an essential item. So we are trying on hats. Boys do you like this one? YEEESSS! So they try them on. Then get down on the floor to use the shoe mirror! Lying on the floor laughing at themselves whilst the sales assistant and other shoppers just look. Don't you love the innocence of kids.

Another layout destined for Great Nana and Great Grandads album. Hope they like it.

This one is a layout that was actually a class from my local scrapbook shop a couple of years ago. But as always back then I hated my handwriting and was always going to type some journalling later. Hence I saw it the other day still blank. (I'm sure I'm not alone in this - thankfully I have worked through my issue and just hand write all my journalling now). But it was kinda good because as we prepare to leave Geraldton for the Land of the Long White Cloud it was great to reflect and realise Geraldton has been good to us. I have met some truely awesome people, shared some fun times and this place will always be special. I met my husband and had my two beautiful boys here. Oh and who could ever be upset about the climate and sunshine hours. Yes - I've been blessed.

As for leaving plans, house has been on the market for a month or so now. All positive comments just need an offer! So hoping for a sale sometime soon. At this point we leave WA on 31st Oct, go to America then back to NZ to live 30 Nov. All going well we will sell the house, pack everything up and enjoy our holiday, before arriving in NZ to find a place to live before our gear arrives. Well that plan A. So lets hope.

Trust all is well in your part of the world.
Love Mel xo
