Hi all, finally getting back to post the last 2 weeks of PL, l have had my pages done each week ,but haven't had time to post, l will start at week 31, this week l pruned my roses, and popped in some cards l had made for my monthly card class, but the most exciting thing this week was  l started art classes again, when my kids were little l took some folk and decorative art classes, after six months l was then teaching them, l taught for 5 years and was lucky enough to have 5 projects and a profile published in a craft magazine, l then took a break and renovated our home and thought that maybe one day l would go back to it, the last time l painted was in 1998,  so now moving on to 2012, l have had the urge to paint again and wanted to try something different, so this week l started to learn watercolour painting, which is oh so different to what and how l was taught many years ago, lve been doing lots of practise and feel lm getting the hang of things again so lve added a few pieces of works lve been playing with on practise sheets.
 And now lve written the start of my blog, l cant seem to get my photos to load, this is going to have to be a TO BE CONTINUED post, SORRY, and l was so excited to show you all , be back soon

Welcome to PLweek 30, where oh where is the time going, here we are at week 30 already and christmas will be here before we know it,  This week we have a pic of brody and olivia,  Olivia hates her photo being taken, so it took a while to convince her to have it taken after what seemed like  forever nagging her , she finally gave in after Brodys comment that l wouldn't leave them alone till l had a photo, he said 'Now you know what its been like here for 17 years. LOL.
During the week l started taking the dogs walking again, they absolutely love this and l always feel so much better after a good walk, the only problem is that when Lu-lu sees another dog all she wants to do is try and fight with them, which makes it difficult as so many people use the same track, l think we might have to do a bit more training, as she thinks the walk track belongs to her and on the day l took her and gus together it was even worse , its a bit hard to try and control both dogs, when other animals are arounds, l think l will have to come up with plan B on the exercise program.
On friday after card class l went out to lunch with the girls, lve been so lucky finding a great bunch of girls in this area- who are so fun to be with and lots of laughter, while we were at lunch, we bumped into Annie Phelan , one of our local actress's in the area, Annie  has played many TV roles over the years and at the moment she is in Winners & Losers, she is such a lovely down to earth lady and was happy to have her photo taken with us.  On sunday l taught a childrens card class at the neighbourhood house, and while l was out David whiped up some steak and kidney pies for himself, he was a chef in another life and l dont eat pies and l dont do kidney at AT ALL ,so he has to make them himself. The back part of my insert this week is a little story on my Mum and Dad,  they have been seperated since l was about 10 ,and it did take many years before they saw eye to eye on many things, but for the past 28 years they have had a great friendship, they see each other most days for a cuppa together, Mum invites dad for tea, he is always invited to family gatherings, dad even helps mum around the house, theres a quote that says FAMILY- WE MIGHT NOT HAVE IT ALL TOGETHER BUT TOGETHER WE HAVE IT ALL,  and this is so our Family, so the story goes that on Sunday Mum & Dad went out for lunch together, to celebrate what would have been 50 years of marriage, l thought this was so funny, but a beautiful story of a great friendship, l really think they would be lost without each other.

So that was week 30, hope you have all had a good one.
