I now have internet at home. I am such a happy girl. Gorgeous Girl is on school holidays at the moment, but I’m hoping to sneak some time to catch up with my bloggy friends. I only have 692 unread posts in my Google Reader… We will not discuss the price of internet in PNG. Suffice it to say that when one of my facebook friends heard how much I was paying they commented that it was ‘gold-plated internet’.
Since I last blogged I’ve been to Australia and back. Attended a conference (got to sit in a room with some of my academic heroes, that was kind of exciting – too shy to speak to them though) and did some shopping. Gorgeous Girl needed a booster seat for the car (she’s outgrown her car seat) and we couldn’t find a booster seat here in PNG. That was the main thing, plus a lot of other little stuff, like organic soap and shampoo.
Two days before I flew out a truck turned up with all of our things.
This bookshelf was too tall to fit up our narrow staircase, but the removalists thought laterally and were able to get it into the house via the balcony.
The room at the end with the open door is Gorgeous Girls.
Going to the right is our bedroom, the kitchen and the dining area.
I left Gorgeous Man with this mess.
This area has now become my craft and study ‘room’.
To celebrate being reunited with my stash I did a little scrapbooking. The photos were taken by my very talented sister-in-law and the chicken (chook) belongs to her children.
The frame on the page was an insert from an old photo frame. It had gotten a bit grubby after many years of use. I remounted the photo that was in the frame and kept the insert. I covered the grubby marks with the lettering. I think it has worked out quite well. As much as I love the layered look, I find it very hard to do and so I think I just have to admit that I’m a clean-line scrapbooker at heart.
Next post: more scrapbooking, a card and some charity knitting.
