Easter bunnies

I now understand why all the non-shift workers I'm surrounded by RAVE like lunatics about the Easter break. I have just (for the first time in my entire working life) had a real Easter break. F O U R days OFF!!! Yay...yahoooo, yipppeee. Oh my gawd it's been wonderful! It is the only truly wonderful thing about doing the bosses job for 5 weeks - not only do I manage to have Easter off, but I also jag another short week when ANZAC day comes around. As a nurse I usually work public holidays... half the time I don't even realise it is a public holiday (until I go to the shop or Post Office and realise it's closed!). So YAY, I feel refreshed and rejuve'd.

So what have I done the past 4 days?

I've had a gardening and scrapbooking FRENZY! My two favourite 'relaxation' hobbies have been done to death. Today I spent no less than 8 hours gardening. Weeding, digging, pruning, weeding, potting, watering, weeding some more. It was great. I've got blisters to prove my efforts, but I feel fantastic that I managed to clean up the entire back and front garden beds. I wish I'd taken before and after shots - I could've sent them to Backyard Blitz & they might've hired me to be part of their team!

Scrapbooking... well i finally finished my sisters 'better-late-than-never' 40th Birthday album thingy. It's awesome (pity she turned 40 last year...haarr!) and I know she'll love it. Here are some pics.... (I hope she doesn't read my blog)

If Scrapbooking bores you ... you'd better scroll down fast!

Well I'm off to bed to have dreams about pulling weeds, digging trenches and cutting and glueing bits of paper!!
PS: I've eaten like a 'normal' person today... healthy but not obsessive. It felt great!

Good to hear you had some quality down time. You sounded like you needed it.

I love your scrapbooking pages!! They look great. I will have to post a pic of the page I completed the other night. I just love doing scrapbooking.

I agree with you about obsessing over weight issues. It can be destructive. I found it has to be a balance in EVERYTHING including how I focus on stuff.
