Bronzed Up & Post #100

Tuesday, October 10, 2006

Well I did my Bronze Medallion training over the weekend and I passed so that is a huge relief. I'd really started to doubt myself last week - only trained once cause I was sick and was starting to panic that I wouldn't be able to meet the requirements. But I had nothing to worry about. Although I was still sick - blocked nose and pretty much no voice, I swam my 400m in 12 mins (we had 13 mins to do it) and I had 3:15 mins to swim 50m freestyle then tow someone 50m. This was really hard going as we weren't allowed to use any aids to tow - kickboard, etc.. just our arms. I managed to do that exercise in 3:05 so that was a pretty close call!! But it's over with now. I acutally really enjoyed myself and it was a great bunch of people in the group so that's always good.
Apart from swimming and being sick, not much else has been happening. Managed to get a LO done on Sunday night. The photo is of my hubby Andrew. He was having a total laughing fit and I captured it on film. I really love this photo and I am really happy with how the LO turned out. The journalling block is one of my new Autumn Leaves stamps that I got last week. I am totally in love with these already!! Picture below.

Now before I go, this is my 100th post on this blog. Can you believe I have rambled on 100 times?? I would really really love to know who actually reads this blog. So here is my proposal. I would love for anyone and everyone who reads this blog to take an extra minute to post a comment and say hi to me. Then I will put all your names in a hat and pull out one and then send that person a pressie. If you are a scrapbooker, it'll be scrapbook related. If you are not, I'll send something else! I'll give you till Friday of this week (13th - wooooo!!) Then I'll post who the winner is over the weekend. Happy commenting!

So please please please leave me a message.

5 things I am grateful for today
1. That I passed my Bronze Medallion Course
2. That Lavina got voted out of Idol
3. My sisters - just cause
4. Greys Anatomy - it seriously gets better and better every week
5. That I am loved and accepted

Till next time
