Dont blink!!!

Is today Monday? Mmmm, no I think it is Wednesday, I have no idea what date, time has just passed at lightning speed. Why is that, did I blink?
Dont you feel that sometimes life just passes you by, you are 'in the moment', in my case, painting, sanding, cleaning, restoring, reorganising, oh and did I say cleaning? I like keeping busy, but I tend to tune out too often, and all of a sudden school holidays are over, and my son is back at school, and hubby is back from a trip on the other side of the country!

The biggest news this week has to be 'middle child's' 18th birthday this Saturday, so I know that Saturday is the 1st of August, 'Wattle day', or as most seem to keep reminding us, The horses birthday! I think I must have blinked a dozen times for that to happen, how could Larissa be 18 already?
Ive ordered the cake, Ive received the RSVP's, and Ive wrapped the presents!!
I just need to stop the clock, go back in time, and revisit wonderful memories of Larissa's childhood , as she moves into the 'grownup' world! Out come the photo albums and videos!
I have nearly finished some wonderful projects, and will share them soon, bare with me!
