from blogging for a little while. I have been hit with a few hard blows lately and just need to take some time out for me. I need to get back on track and figure stuff out.

I hope to not be gone for too long and will still pop on every now and again to see what everyone is up to and say hi.

Thank you xxoo

I actually won this mug in a giveaway a little while ago from Julie Ann Bowden's blog. I love it and have all of my hot drinks from it.

This is my shadow stretched out on the ground

I am in the worst 'funk' at the moment and I can't break myself out of it. It is driving me crazy! I feel so unmotivated and I am not sure why. I want to blog and do my art, but I just can't bring myself to do it at the moment. I think I am just a bit confused about stuff in my life at the moment and what I want to do. Hopefully I will break myself out of it soon. I think I just need to get in there and do it without thinking about it.

Anyway, I just wanted to pop on and let everyone know that I am still here and I am ok. I have been such a bad blogger at the moment and I feel so bad about it. I promise to try and do better.

I am also really looking forward to start participating in our 'photo of the week' group again. It looks like it will be a lot of fun this year with a lot of new ideas.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Alex and I spent the day over at my Mum's house with my family. Mum prepared a lovely Chrissy lunch and pudding for dessert. We played games and chatted the day away. We had a lot of fun catching up with all the family.

I can't believe today is the last day of the year. It has gone by sooo fast, and I must say I had a pretty good year with a lot of positive stuff around me. I, like a lot of other people I have talked to, feel a lot of change is coming for this new year. I am looking forward to it.

Have a Happy and Safe New Year Everyone

Alex, Aaron and I went to view some Chrissy lights last weekend. I have wonderful memories from when I was little of going and viewing the lights every year with my family. Everyone went to so much effort with their displays and it really made it feel like Christmas as everyone was happy and friendly.
Nowadays you don't see as many displays anymore which makes me a little sad. I can understand why though with the cost of everything going up and up. Maybe it will change again in years to come.

Here are some pics of a couple of the displays we saw -



P.S. I also just wanted to mention that Katie is hosting a giveaway for me on her blog. Pop on over and leave a comment here to be in the draw to win your choice of one of my pendants. Good Luck!

Alex and I had a very busy weekend just gone by. We were up on the Sunshine Coast for Alex's older sister Kate's wedding.

We were all a bit nervous though as Kate is a huge horse lover and her dream was for her and her flower girl to be lead down the aisle on her horses. We were not sure how either of the horses would react to this situation as they have never done anything like this before.

Coming down the aisle

There were a few hairy scary moments as the flower girls horse (who was suppose to be in front of the bride) refused to go through the arch. He dug his little hooves in and wouldn't budge. Kate's Mum had to just go on ahead with Kate.

They seemed to be doing well until they got closer to the crowd and he too started to panic, and to every ones horror started backing up into the other horse and almost stood on one of the bridesmaids who were concentrating on coaxing the other horse to follow. Kate tried to nudge the horse forward but he wouldn't go much further, so she had to get off there. She was quickly collected by her Dad to walk her the rest of the way.

Her nervous groom was waiting for her at the other end. Kate's new husband is Scottish so they all looked snazzy done up in their kilts on the day.

This is the groom just as he saw Kate for the first time

It was a beautiful ceremony. I didn't get many photos of it though as it was really overcast and my camera isn't the best in those conditions.

After the we did the family photos the bridal party took off to get more photos done. The rest of the guests where offered drinks a nibbles in the venues courtyard, where we all got to chat and catch up with everyone.
