the works are full of spanners...

... not my original turn of phrase, although it describes my life quite appropriately right now :-) It's from this song.

October was an eventful month! Earlier in the month I visited Bundaberg, to teach at the Creative Artz Cottage's Big Day In. I had a great time, and got to spend the day with lots of lovely people. You can see some photos from the day on Donna's Blog. A huge thank you again to Donna and Cassie and all the girls who worked hard to make it a successful day and fundraiser for the Cancer Council.
Here are the projects we completed in my classes:
(The photos on the layout above were taken by the kids with our Lomography Fisheye camera - lots of fun)

Pete and the kids came to Bundaberg too, so we had 5 days in Bargara - mostly just relaxing, and a day spent catching up with old friends. Following that we headed back down to Caloundra for the Music Festival there. It's a great little festival, and we all enjoyed seeing Tripod and Kate Miller-Heidke again, along with The Whitlams, Pete Murray, Jackson Jackson (Ruby's new favourite), Daryl Braithwaite, Lior... and lots more I just can't think of right now.
All of the rushing around over the last couple of months caught up with me when we arrived home, and I spent a couple of weeks battling a sore throat, cough and aches and pains, and generally just feeling yuck.
And our 13yr old car broke down, and for the last time as we have decided to not fix it. So now Pete and I (who both have very little interest in buying cars) need to do some research and find another one.
Ok... enough whinging. The full Woodford Folk Festival programme is up now, so check it out. This year we're camping there for the full six days, and I'm getting excited about that. Hopefully we won't get washed away like last year! Anyone else going?
