More game screenshots

I haven't been very scrapbookly inspired, so here are some screenshots of both Sims2 & World of Warcraft ;)

First off, I created yet another Sim!HamwoodFamily :) Its so hard to get them looking like us, I'm not very good at it ;) Sim!Lauren & Sim! Deana up first, then Sim!Damien on our .. err I mean their new block of land, the house is now built with the help of .. err .. money goddesses .. thaty may or may not be called "Cheats".

Now for WoW, Wytchhazel & Gillagi, soon to be embarking on kick assery together :)
I should probably lighten these images but can't be naffed.

My WoW Girlies

As requested :)

Gillena is my lvl 49 Human Paladin, she is my first character so I have a soft spot for her :)
Aranel is my lvl 28 Night Elf Warrior, she KICKS ASS, I wub her, she is also damn sexy
Gillagi is my wee lvl 4 Gnome Mage, soon to be on a whirlwind adventure with Leah

Of Course!

Lauren's latest catch phrase. *giggle*
Damien was looking for her toothbrush the other night when bathing her, I told him where it was and Lauren was pointing at it too, he said something along the lines of "oh Lauren knew where it was all along" Lauren then responded "Of Course!" hehehe its the funniest thing, I'll have to get it on video.

Had a crap night last night, she woke a squillion times, so I'm tired today, just hoping she doesn't push too many buttons. Will have to make sure I go out today.

I was going to take some screenshots of my WoW girlies, but they had a big patch last night so its downloading now. So here are some photos of myother girly :)

GREAT day today :D

Today has been a great day from the start :)
Met up with Narelle, Mia & Jude at a fabulous park this morning, were there from 8.30-10ish.
Had a ball! :D

Lauren fell asleep in the car on the way home .. bliss, means easy to transfer for nap :D

Hubby & I played some WoW .. lvl 28 woot!

Went up to the shops, had coffee & cake, got some groceries.

Went to the park again this afternoon, had fun on swings and slides and silly me did some chin ups and hanging upside down from monkey bar, forgot I am no longer 12, now have sore back .. doh

Had an awesome time this evening kicking a ball around in the backyard, it has been so long since Damien & I did something like that, we were having a good laugh and working up a bit of a sweat, it just felt really good, and Lauren thought it was fabulous. We made up a new "GOAL" dance Lauren & I, we spin around with our hands above our head!

So I'm a bit sore in my muscles now, but thoroughly enjoyed today :D :D
Have some photos from this morning but don't want to overload my blog with too many photos, not sure y'all want to trawl through them :)

Heres hoping Lauren sleeps well after such an active day :D

Dribble dribble

Time for some dribble ;)
I just ate a delish egg & lettuce sandwich, mixed some yummo whole egg mayo in with 2 boiled eggs, added some garlic & curry powder, slopped onto bread .. munch munch munch .. except now my belly is saying "Arghhh why did you feed me bread!?" much like it was at lunch time after I ate a bowl of Cold Rock icecream .. mmm ferrero rocher, mmm choc mint .. mmmm

Just finished playing WoW with hubby dearest, we were starting to get snippy with each other so thought it wise to take a break, its REALLY laggy tonight anyway so bit painful.

My little monkey is so scrumptious, even though she is really whiney at the moment, I am just loving this stage (don't we love all the stages ;)) Her vocab is so amazing *happy sigh* I love talking to her. Can't wait for her to talk in proper sentences *beam*

Had a good day today, went to the park this morning, had a blast :D Damien revisted his childhood by climbing up the big climbing thing

Lauren also had a ball, but was ready to go when I suggested it was time to go home, started walking off down the path lol

Ok time for some photos :)

My latest layout brought up so many memories.
My friend Saani passed away last year (she is the gorgeous one in the middle), the awful disease MS took her life, she had only had it for 4 years, she was so young, she left behind her beautiful 4 yr old daughter and a loving husband & family.

One memory that sticks with me is of little Bella dancing around at the funeral to Jeff Buckley's - Hallelujah, I am sure that Saani was dancing with her.

It just broke my heart to see Bella going up to the coffin, trying to see her mummy. She knows that mummy had to leave earth because God wanted her to be an angel.

FOr my beautiful Saani, I miss you and I hope that you are at peace.

Barbie ...

Yes I bought a barbie for Lauren.
I feel like such a hypocrite.
I have been saying for ages, I won't buy her one until she really really wants one ..
Well my friend Kim & her daughter Imogen were over a few weeks ago, Imogen brought over some of her barbies, Lauren loved them.

This morning while walking through Coles I see barbies for $4.99, I couldn't resist, I got her a brown haired one though .. :P

She LOVES her, carried her around with this sweet little smile on her face, kept stroking her hair, and brushing it, making her dance, it was gorgeous to see. She even had a bath with her .. funny story. I took her clothes of (the barbie's) and put her in the bath, Lauren sees her boobies "B's! B's!" and pretends to suck out of them PMSL! Was so funny.

She even had to take her to bed, then again she took Damien's Jean Luc Picard 'doll' to bed today too ;)

So yeah, Im currently having a bit of a digiscrapping splurge, so expect some LO's to appear soon :)

Date Update

We ended up going to a shopping centre and wandering around for a while. Had a nice lunch a cafe, and just wandered :)

It was nice to wander without having to worry about a toddler racing around, didn't feel rushed :)

Next time hopefully there will be a movie out that we want to watch, or we can plan it better and do something else.

Here hoping we have a good nights sleep tonight, had a VERY restless night last night, Lauren had bad wind (hadn't pooed all day so was on the boob frequently and thrashing around).

So please if you have any spare send Lauren peaceful sleeping vibes :)

I leave you with another photo ;)

Date Day

So Mum and my nephew are coming over this morning to look after Lauren while Damien & I go on a 'date'

We will go once I have gotten Lauren down for her nap.

Problem is .. we don't know where to go .. we have free movie tickets but there aren't really any movies that we want to see ...

soo what do we do?

Drawing a Blank

When I am reading everyone elses blogs I think of all these things I want to blog about .. and then when it comes to the crunch, I forget.

I sat here with this window open for ages and not a word typed. I'm sure I will come up with something eventually.

I hurt my toe today, not really badly, just bruised it. I was racing for the phone and my big toe kind of folded under my foot, yeah much ouchyness.

Will leave you with this injection of cuteness :)

Rain, Rain, Rain

Loving the rain, its keeping things nice and cool :)
Although I wish Lauren had gumboots and a rain coat so she could run around in it and splash in puddles for longer.

OVER the ants, came home to millions. Followed their trail out of the house, along the house, over some grass, up the neighbours fence, along a palm frond and off into the distance .. BILLIONS of the little black bastards. *rants & raves* I filled their entry hole with baking soda, hope that keeps them away for a while.

I am trying to sweet talk damien into letting me either foster kittens from RSPCA or adopt 2 kittens from RSPCA. I have gotten to "think about it"

He didn't grow up with pets, so doesn't really know what he is demanding I give up. But he is getting there, getting closer to realising how much they mean to me.

Well I have a house to clean and unfort its not going to clean itself.

Wednesday, March 01, 2006


We have been having some wet weather this last weekish.
Ants have invaded our house, they are everywhere, its drivign me batty, I swear I can feel them crawling on me.

I just went around spraying a heap of them with my orange power multi-purpose spray, it kills them dead so who needs to use fly spray!

Also went aroudn outside the house with baby powder hopefully killing them and breaking their trail (the powder at least came in useful for something (was a gift))

So yeah pissed off at the ants .. ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Started Chaste Tree tablets this morning :)
