Shell’s Scrap Space

no scrapping

Since I started working full time scrapbooking has taken a back seat.  The only way I can see me getting any done right now is if I take it to work and scrap in my lunch break but I don't fancy beetroot juice or drinks being splattered on my layouts as I'm working on them. 

Working full time has been great so far, I am really enjoying it, the girls at work are wonderful and it's really nice to get out of the house every day and get dressed up, put on some heals, being able to read for a full hour in my lunch break every day and to top it off, earning some money.  That part is certainly going to help at Christmas time!! 

Our Christmas holidays to Melbourne have had to be cancelled due to work commitments but we're planning a wonderful family holiday for mid next year and we're all really looking forward to that.

I went to a book club meeting last night for the first time in 6 months and had a really fun night.  It was great catching up with all the girls again and I look forward to reading all our wonderful book choices for next year.  We meet at the Lagoon Seafood Restaurant and every time I'm there I have the most beautiful vege stack....I know it's a seafood restaurant but give me char grilled eggplant and zucchini with a sprinkle of cracked pepper any day of the week and I'm happy :)

Right now I'm reading

I'm only up to page 12 but the story has me hooked so far and I can't wait for my lunch hour to read some more of it.

Hope you're all having a great week :)

Love the new banner Shell. I was wondering how you were getting on at work. I didnt do a scrap thing while I was away and it was kinda nice to not but now I am itching to do something.
I just finished the second book in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series. On to the third. They are great. I would love to do a book club. A few girlfriends and I tried it at one stage but we fizzled out. Might have to revamp it....

I hear ya about the all work/no scrapping Shell!'s a bummer, but just think of the extra money for scrap shopping when you get some time back!!
