About Me

My photo
Where do I begin? I guess At the beginning! I live in beautiful Tasmania, Australia with my wonderful hubby, Matthew and our four angels (part time devils) Isaac, Reuben, Isabella, and Charlotte. Currently I'm a stay-at-home mum and I absolutely love that. Nothing else compares. I'm also studying the Master of Teaching part-time and I'm serving as the relief society president of our ward. I love being outside, especially in summer. I love big windows & lots of light. I love swimming, running and mowing the lawn! my favourite vegetable is carrots (or potatoes if mum's baked them) and I love fresh fruit salad. My most favourite thing to do is spend time with my precious family.

WEDNESDAY

For the last two weeks Wednesday has been the most interesting day for me.  
Last week we saw the Kym Lardner performance at school and today we saw him again!! at Waimea primary school in Sandy Bay.  During the week Kym made contact with me.....  anyway to cut a long story short, he invited me to come along to this morning's performance to take a few photos for him! So Charlotte and I set off, camera in hand, to take a few shots.  I was very nervous but it was FUN.  He introduced me to the kids as his "Photographer friend".  I had to laugh (on the inside) because I've only had this camera for about 4 months and I don't even know how to use it properly yet (I need your help Chelsea).  I managed to get quite a few good shots though and he is going to use them for some publicity!! woohoo.  Anyway we now have the new CD,  His 'Kym Larnder' book which is a compliation of previous books,  and another copy of the DVD (it will be in tomorrow's post heading your way Bridey!!! - it's signed) all thanks to the generosity of Kym.  Pretty Cool hu?  Anyway I mentioned that I would like to write a kids book.  I've had a story in my head since I was a kid.  It's an adaptation of a story my dad told me when I was a little tacker.  Dad just made it up on the spot and I loved it.  As I've told it to my own kids over the last 13 years, it has gradually evolved and I think it would be a great book.  So I'm gonna do it!!  I don't care whether it gets published or not, I just want to write it - for me.  Kym said to send him a copy and he will do a mock up!!  You know what they say...It's who you know, not what you know!!!
