3 more sleeps!

Two amazing things happened today.

Firstly I went to the grand opening of Spotlight at Rockdale. I wish I had my digital camera, so i could take a picture with the 'spotlight man' mascot. I didn't even know they had a 'mascot'. I bet Lincraft doesn't. Anyhow he looked abit like the bad twin off a leunig cartoon. But i digress! Rockdale Spotlight is truly amazing. It reminds me of Walmart in America - i guess like any big w or kmart in OZ. It is big. It is craft heaven. It has party supplies, specialist baking stuff (colouring PASTE not liquid!), a whole book section for inspiration and everything else you expect (wool, fabric, paints, scrapbooking) and . And in clearly designated section and aisles AND they even have lay-buy! It has become my new favourite place to go at lunchtime and possibly means that i will spend less time on internet looking for inspiration and sourcing materials. not.

Secondly, after much 'um'ing and 'ah'ing, I'm in. I'm doing the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic when i get back from Hawaii. 111km over night down Hawkesbury River. Yeah so that last post below might have to wait til after the race. We're doing it as a mixed crew in an OC12. What's an oc12? I've never seen one either but I have it on good authority that OC6 x 2 = OC12. I'm not joking, it's a 'double hull' canoe. hehe!

Did i mention 3 sleeps?!
