IT Issues and Just Plain Busy

That's my excuse for not updating my blog for 6 weeks. I have had some IT issues - mainly with blogger and  have just been to busy. Over the six weeks I have progressed a lot with my organisation for our Aussie Adventure. I have had a stall at a couple of markets to sell some of the jewellery I have made and also to get rid of craft supplies that I no longer use. We have bought just about all the things we think we need. This coming weekend I am having a Garage Sale to get rid of some things that I should have gotten rid of a while ago. Then its donation time to the Diabetes Association and then Hard Rubbish Collection. In between all of that I am having a family lunch, various lunches and nights out with friends and Christmas in Eden with my son Shane and his little family. Oh yeah I have to fit in some Christmas shopping too!!
I have still been participating in the fatmumslim November Photo Challenge, so I thought I would share a couple of my photos seeing I can now upload them.

Breakfast and Wedding

Day 3 the theme is Breakfast.
I am not really that fond of breakfast, I really hate cereal. But I force myself to have something as I know it is the most important meal of the day. My breakfast usually consists of freshly squeezed orange juice and always something spread with good old Vegemite. For those non Aussie's out there or those who have never tasted Vegemite, it is made from concentrated yeast extract and is very black and very salty. Most non converts that I have given it to absolutely hate it. But being Australian it is probably one of the first food experiences we get.
Most Mums steer for Vegemite on toast when their child is a very fussy eater.
Aussie Adventure Update:
I haven't had a chance to do get into to much today as I am going to a wedding and at 59 it takes me a while to scrub up OK. But I have been researching Tourist Parks for our first 3 nights. I am also excited to have actually booked our first night. All this preparation is making it feel really REAL!!

Colours and Tyres

Day 2 - Colour. Yes the theme for today is Colour, so I thought I would share my favourite colour PURPLE. It hasn't always been my fav colour, when I was younger it was GREEN. Back in my 20's when I got my 1st brand new house I had LIME GREEN carpet. I loved it then but oh my goodness I couldn't handle it now. Why do we choose a certain colour as our favourite... I don't know. But I do know that when I see the colour PURPLE it makes me feel calm. I would love to know what your favourite colour is and how it makes you feel? Why do you think why we are drawn to a certain colour.

Aussie Adventure Update -
Today we had All Terrain Tyres installed onto our car for all the
rugged dirt roads we will end up traveling on.
Keep visiting because in the next week or so I will be giving away a free prize to one lucky winner.

Welcome November

Day 1 - Something starting with C
Well this was an easy theme today - it just had to be my beautiful granddaughter Clare.

We are now counting down the days until we head off on our Aussie Adventure. We will drive out the driveway on January 14th 2013. Our home for the 12 months will be our Jayco Swan Campervan. I spent today tackling some sorting through what I'm taking and whats staying. I am lucky that our van has quite a bit of storage space but I still need to make use of every nook and cranny. Who thought there would be so much to do!! Oh well I will just tackle some more tomorrow.
