What a Fantastic Time

Last weekend I went to my first scrapbook retreat with LSBS it was fantastic. Spent 3 days with the girls and did some fantastic classes, also attempted some scrapping. It was so nice to actually spend "real time" with my cyber friends, I chat to the girls most days online, but to actually be there and be able to hug them and hear the sounds of their voice and laughter was well worth the trip.Lisa Pate

The best part was getting to spend so much time with Narelle, even though we didn't really know each other when I lived in Sunbury through the wonders of technology we have become really close and I now consider her one of my best friends. I enjoyed every minute in her company, she is just a lovely generous, beautiful person, and I am very grateful that she considers me a friend.

On Holidays

Well I am officially on holidays, I have taken the week off to get ready for the retreat, well that and to just relax a bit. I have almost finished all my pre-retreat tasks now I just need to figure out how and what to pack. I think its going to be the best time, scrapping, chatting and solidifying friendships.

On the work front we have some major changes coming up. We have a new Premier in Vic and in his first week he announced a change of cabinets, ECIS will no longer fall under DHS, we will be part of the new Dept Education and Early Childhood Development. Nobody is very sure what that means yet, we will be moving over with kindergartens, maternal child health and early childhood services, so basically most of the Office for Children. We don't know where we will be housed, we don't know what funding or resources we will have, we don't know much at all but it will be interesting.

I'm So Excited

Well now I feel like the Cat in the Hat with the cupcakenator but nevermind lol.

This time in 2 weeks I will be on a train headed to Sunbury, what's so exciting about that? I hear you ask, well from there Narelle and I are getting on a plane to go to Sydney for a scrapbooking retreat. Can't wait, its going to be so much fun! I haven't met any of the other girls going in real life but I feel I know most of them pretty well cause I chat to them everyday at LSBS.

So with that in mind I better get a wriggle on with all the prerequisite activities and get packed.
