What's up with Fuel Prices???

Just had to drive past the local servo, OMG 153.9, nearly fell out of the car. It's gone up nearly 10 cents since last week. I have no idea how we are going to survive and just keep thinking about the kids, what's the price going to be like when they start learning to drive $20 a litre. It's getting over the top. Somethings going to have to give and at the moment I'm thinking it'll be my addiction. Going to have to put myself on a major Scrap diet and try and use so much of what I have before buying anything else.

Anyway on other news. Charlotte was sick, had the awful vomiting bug that's been doing the circut, yuck yuck yuck, was up all night with her last Thursday. Unfortunately I came down with it over the weekend and even now, I'm still not feeling the best, so that blew all my good intentions of scrapping out the window. Just hope that little man doesn't end up with it. Bub on the other hand won't stop moving, I can even see it moving around now. Totally freaky. Poor Luke still hasn't felt bub though.

Haven't had much scrappy stuff to do, well apart from *shhhhhh* secret business.

Although I can say that I was asked by the awesome Alana Steadman from Scrapping Outback to be guest designer for this month. Yay, she has some very very awesome products in her shop. Best bit is that I'm going to have some pages and a cute mini on display at the Brisbane Convention, so if you're heading there go and check that out. Will get around to showing them but right not my internet is giving me the you know what's.

And I've been asked to become part of the Design Team for a local Scrap Shop in Rocky. Scrap'n'Scrap, they get some very cool products in from the States, and have such delish stamps too. I'll have to teach as well, which I'm a little scared about. Never taught and really really never thought I'd want to.

There is some other HUGE news that's coming aswell, which a few select people know about, but right now I want to keep that one under my hat. :)

Not much else happening, got some CJ entries finished and I managed to do TAKE TWO on mine, not happy with it at all though. Very annoyed that it went 'missing' in the first place.

Better go, sorry for the long boring, photoless post.

Fuel - one word...CRAZY!

I agree with the scrap diet...lol. Times are tough right now and things are just going up in price rather quickly! Like food for instance - soon we all won't be able to afford it...lol. It's ridiculous! Anyhoo! lol

I hope the bug moves out of your house soon - not nice!

Congrats on the Guest Dt spot...how exciting. Oohhh secret squirrel news - I think I know what that is...hehe! Your secret is safe with me! ;)

Congrats on all the DT possies Nic! I'm sure you'll go just fine teaching classes.

I know what you mean about petrol - I've decided to drive the car as little as possible at the moment, I don't think I realised how much I used it.
