We have such a special family and a lot of them came to the airport to see us off and say goodbye.
All the boys..
This is my entire Scrapbooking Room in boxes...
Snapshot of our dining room... boxes galore..
On Wednesday the container arrived, a nice big pretty red one... they spent most of the day packing all the boxes into the container. By about 1h30 they were finished and the truck drove off to hopefully the first possible ship to Australia..
Seeing all our boxes on the street was very sad... my life in a box... oh dear... amazing it all fitted into the container with space to spare..

Margaret, Salome, Pauline and I were her very first clients and as I expected Elanie was taught us a stunning layout and was a super teacher. Her new little Studio is awesome with fun stock to play with too.

Us ladies had an absolute ball of a time... Thanks Elanie !

Before anything.. I have to brag.. check what my stunning husband bought me for my 40th birthday. A Michel Herbelin Watch.. I am so in love with it !
Am I not just a spoilt brat.. LOL
I have a Scrapping Lesson on Tuesday with Elanie as she launches her new Scrapbooking Venture (Elanie is the new teacher taking over from me).. It will be nice to end of my time in South Africa by actually attending a class and not having to teach one.. LOL
Still busy fighting with the Australian Embassy for Visa's. So hope we can get them this week so that we can book our flights and pack up soon. Still haven't sold the house though, so that is also a big worry.. not sure what to do there! Things just happening so fast... Grr !
This Saturday I have a big jumble sale at home, so hope to get rid of a lot of stash that I don't want to take with. Had a Scrapbooking Jumble sale last weekend and that went very well, lots of girls came to buy notes and papers. It was so sad to say goodbye to everyone.. But such is life I suppose.. everything must come to an end some time or the other.. Last week I taught my last class and that was very sad. Have such a lovely group of ladies and it is really not nice to have to say goodbye to them.
Anyhow.. will keep you all updated on my life as it happens... hope to chat to all soon!
