  1. With the December to Remember, am I correct in saying there will be no monthly Challenges or Challenge Chase?

    1. angleigh

      There will be Tue and Weekend challenges.  We will award prizes as usual from them.  And anyone that completes all 7 will be in a drawing for $20.   But there will not be Challenge Chasers because of all the other prizes and games through the month.

  2. Ken and I were to head off on a little holiday tomorrow but plans have changed -  The highway we would need to travel on tomorrow is closed where we would need to travel on it because of the Bush fires. We decided to cancel as even if the road opened tomorrow it might be a risk for us returning home next Wednesday, plus there are other fires burning near places we would need to travel through to get to our destination.

      Much better to be safe but hope you can take your holiday later when the fires have gone. Its so bad over there from what we see on our TV. Hope the ones near you are now under control.

      So sad you will not be able to make it. I won't be around after the technique challenge at 3 because my DIL and youngest grandson and her family are coming over for dinner. It will be a fun time but I will miss a 2 chats.

  6. I hope everyone else is having as much fun as I am having with all the fun events for the Anniversary! :2468who-do-we-appreciate:

      What fun. I love having the grandchildren staying over. Our youngest will be here next week for a long weekend- I'm so excited. I have to wait till Jan for another visit from the older ones. Enjoy them they are treasures.

      That sounds great Anne-Marie. Busy but delightful.

  9. Today I had a check up at my Optometrist and as I do not need new glasses I was able to do a little bit of shopping with the Last Chance sale.

    1. Jane in N.Z

      Jane in N.Z

      glad you don't need new glasses so happy spending in the sale :) 

    2. Florida granny

      It's way more fun to shop the SG sale than to need new glasses. :) Glad it worked out OK for you.

    3. MariJ

      MariJ

      Yay for no new glasses and shopping too!  :) :clap:

  11. My husband and I are heading off tomorrow for a little 3 night holiday to a town west of us over the mountain range where we may experience a little bit of snow or at least heavy frosts. We are staying in an historic home so I hope to take lots of photos. I will not have internet while away.

  12. Happy Wedding Anniversary... Debby ( Boatlady)... hope you have a great day.

      I dislike true-false questions for that very reason that they are often confusing. Well, enjoy the bit of rest before the next course!

      Good for you A-M. And good luck on everythng in your life. :)

  16. We are still having very hot days. I am enjoying doing lots of scrapping as the online course in Dementia Care I am doing has not started yet. I have some free time now because the Craft Cooperative Store we were involved with closed last November due to the fact we were not making enough sales to be able to keep paying the rent. 

    1. MariJ

      MariJ

      I’m glad to hear you have some down time Anne Marie and to see you scrapping and your pages!

    2. Jane in N.Z

      Jane in N.Z

      yes we have been getting your hot weather as well :) its good to see you online more though. Hope your dementia course goes well its an interesting subject :) 

  17. We are having some very very hot days so it is nice and refreshing to come here and see all those lovely COLD pages appearing in the gallery. 

    1. MariJ

      MariJ

      It’s really uncanny how that happens.  I like seeing the hot pages when it’s freezing here!  Stay cool Anne Marie!   :) 

    2. Jane in N.Z

      Jane in N.Z

      I agree Anne-Marie although I don't think our days are as hot as yours :) 

  18. Back from being away. Our trip went well and we had some good time with Ken's sister and husband.

      I'm so glad you had some lovely family time. Welcome back!

  19. In 12 hours my husband and I are flying off interstate to visit his sister and her husband and will be away 4 nights. It is not so much a holiday as the brother-in-law is dying of asbestosis. 

    1. Boatlady

      Boatlady

      So glad you can get away but sad it is for that sad reason. Enjoy what time you can spend with family. Hugs to you and safe travels.

      Oh my goodness! Praying for a smoother road ahead. Thank goodness for family that can help out. 

  22. Happy New Year to you all. It is already 1st January here Down Under. We had an unexpected visit from friends to come and stay the night so we were up at midnight with them playing board games which was fun. 

  23. Our Christmas plans have changed. My daughter just phoned... they are all very sick with a tummy bug so we will call in and exchange gifts tomorrow morning on our way to be with my older sister for Christmas day etc.
