Sunday....

Woo Hoo - what an awesome day i have had!!! SCHMIIIIIICK!!! Lots of painting, laughing, eating and chatting... couldnt be better really...

Until it came time to go home and everyone had to clean up around me because i was madly painting the tree of life... i was left on the doorstep painting until the light failed... then i strapped a torch to my head and made my way home.... just kidding.

Mary Anchell was just the schmickest art teacher i ever had (even though she stifled a giggle when she came over and looked at my first painting as i was ever so studiously adding the finishing touches - she claimed she was sucking her teeth but i am not convinced...) and Mary Jaqui's meditation had me off with the pixies for quite some time... very schmick.

All in all a great time was had by all, cant wait til the next one (hope i am able to make it!!).


All was in an uproar at my home this evening... my middle child, the freak of nature is going away to camp to myuna bay sport and rec camp with school tomorrow. 5 days and 4 nights. Aaaahhhhh - i can smell the peace already. (sorry - i know i am evil and a bad mummy but you get that) She is beside herself with excitement and the bag has been packed and repacked at least 3 times tonight.....

Anyway, i better hit the sack as i will have to get up early to get everyone moving. At least the bus doesnt leave until 9.15am from school.

Ta Taa for now
luv jen

It's amazing how the dynamics in the family change when you take one child out of the mix...;) xox

I WAS trying to unobtrusivly get 40000000000 biscuit crumbs out of my teeth....obvious backfire there but not aimed at your beautiful artwork maryjen.....dont be paranoid, just because it was an extremely loud snortish type noise doesnt mean you can take it personally....I really shouldnt eat biscuits.......
