The Garbage Law {Happy Monday to you all!} & my plans for the new week :)

Happy Monday everyone!!  
Haha - who am I kidding?!  Mondays suck right?!?

Well mine will be off to a good start this week as I have a 
breakfast date with my bestie, at my favourite coffee shop! 
Not my usual start to the week but we don't get together 
more than once a fortnight due to our combined hectic
 schedules & this fortnight is more hectic than ever as I am
 holding the fort at home alone this week while hubby's 
away so our dinner date has been brought forward to breakfast...

This week I hope to get a lot of scrapbooking done!
Well actually that's what I hope for EVERY week & I never get
to do everything I put on my list so this week will probably be
no different, but I do have a lot of DT work to do & I am trying
to work a little more in advance than usual on it as my daughter
will be home from university soon!  Woo hoo!! 
I am planning a little road trip for us girls for a few days. 
 I need to reclaim my sanity :)

So layout shares are going to be a bit thin on the ground
 this week as most of what I am working on is for Sunday
 & beyond.  A special friend sent this to me some time ago 
& I've been waiting for a suitable slot to share it with you all.   
Hope it gets your week off to a good start!

There's a lot of "garbage dumping" in this town where I live
& plenty of road rage to go with it too.  For some reason,
in this "sleepy" seaside town the people are extremely stressed
& take it out on each other all the time, which I find very sad...

Hi Helen!! I really miss visiting you! I am glad you had a good start this week :) Thank you so much for sharing the article, words of comfort do really help! I know that time is so chasing us lately but I hope you manage to get your awesome projects done, good luck!! :D

*I personally do not have shredder except in the office, but the one that you saw on my blog is the one I bought from a stationery shop :)

Thank you so much for this inspirational message on the garbage in our lives. The last paragraph is definitely the way I strive to live. Wishing you all the best for the week without your hubby home.

Hey busy bee...What are you up to? I hope the breakfast was great..

Thanks for sharing the garbage law..Wouldn't it be easy if we get garbage dumped on us, just dump it back to the dumper?

Or...Maybe just take their garbage somewhere else and let them ruin someone else's day? Unfortunately, we could never avoid the garbage truck, they're everywhere. We just need to learn to duck and hide when they start dumping, besides who wants someone else's stinky garbage when we have some of our own?


Gayle said...

So, so true. Good lesson. Thanks for sharing. xx

Hi ya! how wonderful to have brekkie with your bestie and to be able to meet every fortnight! my bestie and I live in the same city but how clashing schedules so we meet only about 4 times a year! horrible isn't it. Lots of phonecalls exchanged though! Hope you're week has been good so far and continues in the same happy spirit! me, I'm just working. Look forward to Easter and a looooong week off from work! woohoo! xoxox
