It's been a while.....

Yah...been a couple of weeks since I have updated my has thrown me some curve balls to deal with and it's been a hard few weeks.

My Aunty in Brunei collapsed a few weeks ago and was in ICU and just when she was starting to get better, she suddenly passed away last Wednesday. My Aunty Chong Nyuk Lan was a really fun and verbally loud aunty.....she was incredibly loving, kind and generous. She was also a very touchy feely aunty....likes to hold hands, caress faces, loves giving hugs and kisses which is very unusual for an old asian Aunty. She always spoils me when I go back to Brunei and I still can't get to grips with knowing that the next time I do go back, I won't see her ever again. :(

On a happier note, it was my birthday on Monday. Joseph has the week off so I got to spend the day with my man which was fantastic. We had to run a few errands and one of them was up in Mornington, so I got to squeeze in a quick little visit to Paper2. I adore this store....huge with lots of products and heaps to look at. It is like my disneyland and I could spend all day in there. We had a lovely steam boat dinner (bit of a drama there) and then Joseph took me to watch the Xmen movie....fantastic movie!!! layout at the top is of meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Taken with the gifts I received for my 1st birthday!! Aren't I cute? yah ok...I do look like a little boy....tee hee. layouts...

The last two layouts...A for autumn and B for bowling are 8x8 layouts for Sri's A-Z album challenge. We will be doing two letters of the alpha every week.
