Well we had a great break away in Sydney to celebrate Australia Day!!! The kids had a ball on the boat cruising around the harbour. Watching the Ferry race and F18 flying above was Unreal. That night we had tea on the South Steyne which is anchored permantley at Darling Harbour and we had the best ever view of the Fire Crackers!!!



On the Saturday I got to spent the day shopping (if you know me you know I live to shop) :0) and I got the most cute outfit at Alanna Hill just love it....................

{Some People}

So what does she mean



Well to cut a long story short today the kids were typing their names in google to see what came up it is funny you see.



Royce's name came up for sport article he was listed in and we came across another David Tout whot totally looks nothing like our David Tout how funny :0) anyhow I thought I would do my name to see what would appear.



Besides all the Shop and crop links and Scrapbooking Memories stuff there were lots of links to people's blogs and then I found a site that had this to say:



Ireceived my mag in the mail on Monday and haven't even opened it until today. Have to say, it's not all that inspiring. Actually, I thought a lot of the HM were better that some Masters. MHO. 



I agree. To be honest, and I was trying to be very tactful, I didn't really like a lot of the work done by the chosen Masters, truth be known. Sure, I could see talent in there but nothing jumped from the page saying "Don't I look terrific?" Only 1 of them I liked enough to consider using for inspiration



Yes I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I really should not let this worry me BUT hey I am human and I do.



I am really really proud of my efforts in becoming a Master and for one am the first to congratulate anyone for REACHING such efforts, and I figure if you don't like it, don't look at and please don't hurt anyone's feelings by saying you don't like it somthings are best kept to yourself.



And last but not least I would like to say that I think that all 15 girls who made it to MASTERS ROCK!!! along with all the HM and of course all the girls who entered this Fab competetion, yes that is what is  - you enter at your own risk knowing that you may not win I have on 3 occasions and this time it was my time, if you entered and missed out if you really ant to try again  ENTER NEXT YEAR! but please don't degrade yourself by whinning and snickereing about the winners entries.



Ok as Forrest Gump would say "And that's all have too say about that"  :0) now that is of my chest - I don't think I will be goggling Kylie Tout anytime to soon lol!!!!!

Royce got this really cool remote contol boat for Xmas and he tested it out in our very low dam with his best friend DerekBoat. Derek also recived a similar boat and it was quite funny Royce ran straight over the top of Derek's so David had to strip off and save the boat before it sank, but I pormised I would not post his rescue lol......
