Creative Writing

Hello There,

 I have been doing a creative writing course through adult education. Our first homework assignment was to write a poem. I thought I would share my poem with you, it is a riddle and you have to guess what the object is. I would love to know what you think it is. Here is my poem:

Let me tell you a riddle as to what I am
Can you guess, let's see if you can

Some of me is soft, the other, not at all
I can vary in size, but I would be considered by many as small

My colours, shapes and forms are diverse
To calm, sooth and placate is my purpose

Some consider me to be the best
Whilst others consider me to be a pest

Treasured by my one for a period that may be considered small
Then taken away by another and eventually not thought of at all

Do you know what I am? Have you guessed, let's see if you can

My little Cow


Forgot to include this photo with my recent post. We were having some fun (well I was) trying different hats on Owen. I picked this one up in Scotland on our honeymoon, it is my highland cow (or coo as the scots would say)hat. Isn't he just adorable??

Baby Cards

Hello Crafters,

Despite my lack of posts, I have been doing some card making and scrapbooking, which has been good. We were able to squeeze a desk into our bedroom for my crafting, which has been awesome as it means I don't have to get all my stuff out and put it away every time that I want to make a card.

I had to make a couple of cards for friends that have had baby's recently, one boy and one girl. I used the same idea for both cards but made them slightly different. I used the new framelits that are in our current autumn/winter mini.

Here are the two cards:

Hope you like them.

Owen's First Swim

Hello People,

Yes I am still alive, just haven't had much time for blogging of late, don't know why!!! Owen is doing well, he had his six month check last week and he is now weighing in at 8.8kg and is 70cm long.

He started swimming in early February and is doing really well, he went under the water the other day and blew bubbles as he was coming up, I was so proud. Colin was able to have the afternoon off work to attend Owens first swimming lesson, so we were able to get some photos of the occasion.

Colin's father came down from Queensland at the beginning of March to met Owen. It was the first time I had met him as he had been overseas for our wedding. We had a good weekend catching up with him and by the end of his visit I think that he was quite smitten with Owen, but who isn't. This is Owen with his Grandfather Peter.

Of course there has been lots of photos of Owen over the past few months, but here is a selection of some of his more cutest moments.
