Also depressing is the All Black loss last night. My goodness what a horrible game to watch & it just makes me think that the NZRFU really did choose the wrong man for the job. Of course I am talking as a One Eyed Cantabrian & I originally thought Robbie should have been the coach of the All Blacks. I felt very torn, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry when the Wallibies won. I think Graham Henry has already given us his excuse for this loss. Earlier this week I was dumbfounded when I heard him say that Robbie had the better hand because he had worked with the new ELV laws under the Super 14 competition. He then went on to say that with injuries to some of our players we really had an inexperienced team. I can't believe that any coach trots out excuses before the game is even played, to me it sounds defeatist & I suppose if you are thinking negatively you will perform negatively. Yes we had an inexperienced team out there but why do we have to offer that as an excuse even before the game is played.
So while that game was on TV I decided to scrap a digi layout. I find it easier to scrap a digi layout in front of TV than a paper one.
This is the boys cross country. Journalling reads: A cold day at Fendalton Park. James was first to run & he came in 8th. brent ran next & came in 24th. Both boys looked like they could have run another lap.

Being on a hill in Wellington meant it was nearly always windy. The best thing about it though was the view! We had a view over Newlands that was constantly changing. We could see the fire station which was always exciting when the fire alarm went off. There were always cars going along Newlands Road that we could watch. The best sights though were always courtesy of Mother Nature. The sun rising over the hills, rainbows & even sun shining through low fog. I miss the view but I don't miss the wind!

500kg of ice sitting on the hot deck waiting to become an ice sculpture. This Filipino ice carver is the only one on the ship & all the ice sculptures that were in the buffet area were carved by him. The end result is a sculpture of two angel fish.

These photos are taken by the boys themselves. I just love emptying the chip in their camera because it is always surprising what is on there. This is a digi layout using items from Shauna Burke- Smith, Lisa Minor & Vicki Parker.
This layout was created for an e-zine put out by Scrapbook Outlet. Here's a link to the ezine & my layout is on page 4 & 5. http://scrapbookoutletnz.co.nz/e-zine/Default.html
