Home Truths

I've been tagged by Cherri over at CherriBerri to reveal some True Facts about myself.

The rules are below:

Thank the person who gave you the award: Thankyou Cherri.
Post ten honest facts about yourself.
Pass the award on to seven others.

1. I hated Computer Science at school but my past two jobs are computer related and I love it so much.

2. I do not have a green thumb although I wish I did. In fact I can kill a plant within a week and forget I even owned it. I started some seedlings recently but haven't transferred them to a bigger pot yet. They are still alive as we speak... maybe there's some hope for me yet.

3. I really enjoy having 7 sisters and wished I could see them more often.

4. I love children but 3 is enough for now and we will try for our last one in the future. That is if I haven't lost my sanity by then.

5. I am a procrastinator. If I don't write it down I'll just forget to do it.

6. I met hubby at work and we didn't talk to each other for the first year until he had to help me. We fell head over heels and I believe it was destiny. Sometimes we do finish off each other's sentences.. (giggle).

7. I use to be able to read Greek when I studied it in the 5th and 6th grade. I would love to be a linguist.

8. I am still learning to be a housewife and tidy up the house!

9. I am a sucker for romance movies and I use to read a lot of science fiction.

10. I'm so proud of my children and the life I have with my family. We are very blessed and I try to remember that every day.

I'll add one more that I've just thought of. It's actually a quote that I read recently which I LOVE:

"A rich man is not one who owns the most, he is the one who needs the least" - Anon.

I'm not going to tag anyone since I've spent a fair amount of precious time on the computer already while bub is in my lap peacefully sleeping.

I hope you are having a great week so far. We're slowly getting there. Just taking it one day at a time. Soon enough I'll be back in business in no time.

Invisible zipper foot - Birch

I thought I might shed some light on the invisible zipper foot. I bought a Birch model from Spotlight and it came in a little plastic bag with four blue shanks and a rolling foot.

First I removed the standard foot from my Janome sewing machine (Sewist 521). I realised I still needed to remove the shank, which is the part that is screwed on, and holds the interchangeable feet. So with one hand holding the screwdriver and one hand holding my daughter, who just had to watch, it popped out disappeared somewhere. NO! I was about to kick myself but luckily I found it in the basket underneath my table. Phew.

The Birch invisible zipper foot comes with one shank already in place so you know how it's suppose to fit. You have to select the correct shank that fits your machine and slide it onto the foot piece.

I just tried each blue part on my machine and made sure it was wide enough to cover the metal leg bit and that I could fit the screw in it's side. Once you find the correct shank slide…

The cutest labels - Hippo Blue

This is my youngest daughter Jacquie. Jacquie is 3, turning 4 very soon and goes to day care once a week. She also has speech therapy once a week and bad mummy packs her food in plastic bags and old lunch boxes and scribbles her name on paper labels. 
Jacquie is very happy today because she's sporting a brand new lunch box which has her name imprinted on it and it was made by Hippo Blue. Jacquie is in dire need of special name labels and that is where Hippo Blue saved my day and made everything look pretty. Hippo Blue made up a batch of their Vinyl Label Variety pack and I could not be more pleased. I've had other labels before and these ones are quite impressive. Why? well because there's a lot more variety. I like how there are different sizes so I can plaster her name on all her pieces she needs for day care and school.
Did you see those cute footprint stickers? They're shoe stickers. How cool! We also recieved round dots and new square ones which I've never se…

Laser Eye Surgery

< feeling sleepy Blogger doesn't like any of my camera pictures at the moment so I can't show you the pictures taken while I was having my eye's lasered. Here are the pics that Blogger decided it would upload of my eye surgery. I finally decided not to wait any longer and after I saw an advertisement at the local medical centre for the Sebban Eye Centre I decided to see if I was a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. The check only takes 30mins and boy was I glad to hear that I was! I booked an appointment the very next day but I had to still wait 6weeks.
< during the laser!
A week has passed now and I still have slightly blurry vision since having TransPRK or Advanced Surface Laser. Sometimes when I use the saline drops I have clear vision even from the kitchen to the lounge which is fantastic. I just wish it would hurry up so I can get on with things. I have to have IE at 125% otherwise I find it hard to read and I haven't been on the net for a few days now…
