Woo Hoo Wednesday

And here it is Wednesday AGAIN! These weeks are flying by far too fast ... before you know it it will be Christmas ....
So my Woo Hoo's for this week are:
* having fun at SENZ
* staying with the lovely Janine and Mike
* catching up with the other forum girls and many others
* cool purchases - Mr Campy papers that I have been wanting for a while, lovely Imaginisce papers to decorate Emma's Castle Kaiser album among other things
* winning one of those new Fiskars finger knife at one of my classes
* lovely Wellington weather
* visiting the Kikki K store
* having a weekend filled with creativity and laughs - so much fun :)

And this leads me to a wee story from the weekend ... as you may have read on Janine's blog Mike bought himself a SENZ pressie as well - the Gran Tarismo playstation game and steering wheel. Well, growing up in a house with two brothers and father who loved motor racing, I had a go at the playstation game too - LOL! I then said to Janine - 'have a go' - 'no no' she said 'I don't drive'. To cut a long story short we got her driving!!!! On her first few laps Mike and I were trying to explain how to steer and stay on the track, we were already laughing our heads off as she went side to side from one fence then straight across the track to the other side - very funny! So came my comment 'You not supposed to be doing the zigzag, you're not sewing' - her response 'I can't use a sewing machine either, let alone drive!' - ok I suppose you had to be there but I was laughing so much I had tears rolling down my face!!! That was on the Saturday night, but low and behold when I got out of the shower the next morning here is Janine sitting in the lounge racing around the track again!! LOL! Think AngelGurl may have a new addiction!!

Love the photos! Maybe that's how I should learn to drive too lol Looks like you got tons of fun new goodies to play with. I'm going to try that knife too - hoping I don't slice my hand open with it - boy it's sharp!

Right well thats a great list and I was waiting for the story lol. So in my defence, I will say here and now publicly, thats my driving uniform and not my pjs.My hair looks like that because I had helmet hair lol, and reading this story made me laugh out loud again and cause tears to roll down my face in laughter.

Great photo of Janine! Love the "driving uniform" Miss Angel, by the way!

Enjoy all your new goodies, Mich. I just got some Mr Campy papers too - aren't they cute?

Good stash you've got there Mich! Loved being able to meet you on the weekend and too funny swapping dog photos... Wonder if Miss Angelgurl and Mike will be competing against each other on the track now LOL!
