Thursday's Bits'nbobs!

Well here we are again at Thursday. Usually my most fave day of the week as it is closer to the weekend and all that jazz but also because most of the week has past. I do love my Thursdays though....hehehehe. So what's on in my little world today?! Kids are in school, Tim is studying, I'm blogging and enjoying the peace and quiet what more could a girl ask for, except to shop, which is happening a little later. Today will be busy enough as I have an optometrist appointment for myself to see how the eyes are or are not working. Funny thing is that I am quite often at the optometrist with my visually impaired children, Stephanie and Maddison and hubby Tim who all have what they call Best's Vitelliform Dystrophy. A rare genetic eye disease that allows progressive lose of central vision and the need to do things a little different as one would expect when you are dealing with permanent blind spots. Anyone want to know more, than check this site out. So anyway because I usually deal with everyone else and not myself it comes of no surprise that it has actually been quite a few years since my eyes have been checked.....oooops! So today at noon it's my turn just for the normal visual probs as I don't suffer with Best's Disease. I'll keep you all posted as to the outcome of that one.

We have new neighbours and if first impressions count for anything none of us guys in the Turnbull family are all that impressed and they have only been there for the past 2 nights. Our street has 5 homes in it and nothing at all across the road......pure bliss. It is usually a very quiet street and maybe we have just been lucky up until now but the new neighbours are noisy and very distracting. It seems though that the best time for them to make nosie and carry on and have all their outside lights on is right when the kids are trying to settle down in bed for the night. They usually go at around 9:30pm and then the noise and screaming starts.....grrrrrrrr so last night the neighbours were being very busy in the driveway which unfortunatley is on the same side as our bedrooms and so the girls could not settle until 11:30 pm when all was quiet. I am not sure how many there are yet and I suspect a much older teenage daughter, but drinking, burping, smoking, swearing (using the nasty "f" word) just doesn't quite cut it for me to listen to that for the past 2 days. They are renters and we know the owners so very very well. Time will tell and as I have already said to the kids we can't do awhole lot about it but if the noise late at night becomes an issue than a knock at their door from me...... a not so happy mum may happen. I'll let them settle in first. ;)

What's New?
Three new kits in fact and I am really happy with them. Now I can let you have a sneak peak!
First up is Summer Grunge, a full kit with 6 papers, elements, alpha, numbers and bonus symbols and all for just $6 and you can grab the kit here over at Pickleberrypop.

I love using cardboard on alot of my layouts at the moment so I decided it was time to get busy creating some cardboard elements. Cardboard Overlays and Cardboard Pieces are both available now at Pickleberrypop and are only $2.50 each. Sneaky peeky....

Includes 6 cardboard overlays. Simply pop them over your background papers.

Includes 8 assorted cardboard pieces ready to jazz up any layout!

Well time for me to say ciao as I need to get ready for the day so enjoy todays readings and I hope you enjoy my new creations and I'll catch you all next blogging.

Oh that eye disease sounds nasty :(.. hope that they find something to stop it soon.
Ah neighbours.. lol, part of the reason we moved out here is so that we wouldn't have any.. we love our peace and quiet to much.. good luck with them though, and it all might settle down in a little while.
The kits look great too Chris.
Hope you have a good week.

Love these new designs Chris, they are gorgeous! And ya gotta love the feral neighbours, we've got some too! Not a day goes by without me shaking my head in disbelief that people live that way.
