Week One - The 80's !!
**This week's extra criteria - Quote some 80's song lyrics on your page.
I was married and had 3 of my children in the '80's, so it's not really that long ago! I must say I was never into bright colours, leather jackets and stonewashed denim (ugh!! I still don't like that look!)
Anyway here is my layout for the 1980's.
The photo was taken in October 1981, in New Zealand.

Today while having lunch, a whirly wind hit and there was an almighty crash and bang. We headed outside to see what had happened and we discovered this:

On Friday we went up to our school, Longreach School of Distance Education for Family Day and the swimming carnival.
The kids met their teachers and also their classmates. There were home tutor sessions with teachers as well as a session with regards all support staff. Nathan was very happy to make some new friends. I was happy to see there were still some familiar faces amongst the staff as well as families. Nathan was so excited to be wearing his new school uniform!
After lunch, Nathan competed in some of the 10m events and had a wonderful time in the pool.
Nathan had a fun birthday party with his friends yesterday afternoon. The kids all got on so well and eventhough Milli was the only girl, she was not left out.
Our guests all stayed for a relaxing BBQ dinner before heading home.
This morning at 6am, we trucked 858 2004 drop ewes who are now heading for their new home new Goondiwindi. They loaded really well and we were home again by 8.30am. The rest of the day is fairly steady though.

As all of the class answered their questions well and were very good at remembering the rules, she told the children to give themselves a squeeze…the look on Nathan’s face as he did this was so funny!

The requirements for his challenge included having items starting with the letters in "Beach". eg
B - brads, buttons
E - Embellishments, embroidery thread
A - Alphas
C - cardstock
H - hessian
He loves scrapbooking and this time especially loved using the cardstock stickers matching the Basic Grey paper. You can see that he also loves playing in the mud after rain or washing the vehicles!
I completed the sketch challenge this afternoon and finally scrapped a photo of our eldest son Alastair on his 22nd birthday. (He turns 24 this July!) Better late than never!! My sister Lea took this photo as Alastair was staying with her at the time.
Oh, our split system air-conditioner was installed yesterday. We tested it during lunch and then turned it off during the afternoon as it really wasn't warm enough to warrant having it on. Today is cool and lightly cloudy with the occasional drizzle of rain.
