Hello November ... What's Up ?

Oh I thought it's still month of October. Gee... not until I found out on my schedule two days ago that I again have to bring my jewelries for display and sales at the Parent's Group meeting at International School Of Western Australia ( ISWA) on the 3rd of Nov. 2011. Hmmmmm ... time really flies fast these days!

I still have loads of newly created beaded jewelries so I didn't worry much on creating new pieces for the event.

What I'd been worried about was the cleaning of our house the last few days coz I have the real estate agent coming over the same day for the inspection of our place.

I had swept the whole backyard garden all day exactly 3 days ago. Oh, God knows how my back ached like hell at the end of that day. Never again i will sweep that yard coz 2 days after, the dead leaves came back on the grass again falling out from the trees all around. What a waste of all my efforts. The garden was messy again especially yesterday after seeing it in  the morning littered with almost half of a tree that fell down due to strong winds during the night !  Oh My God !


Lucky the broken tree didn't fall during the time I was standing with my broom under it while removing the dead leaves from the grass. What a lucky escape for me ! I can surely say that someone up there is watching over me and it's not the end of the world yet for me ... Yeeessssss!

Anyways, I have to rush to school with kids and all my stuffs in the car at 8:15am. So no time to worry much about the fallen tree. I can't do anything about it anyways. The agent will surely deal with it and have it cleared for us.

The parent Group meeting being done every 1st Thursday of the month started at 9am. The jewelries were laid on the velvet covered table I had brought in myself and everything was fully set up when the meeting started. I even had viewers and buyers even before the meeting had started! Wow ... what a show of support . I appreciate the attention given to my creations. It's heart warming really.

2 hours of selling in the drama room where the meeting was held was again successful just like the 1st time I came to this venue to sell. I even met new parents who just arrived in Perth with their children enjoying their 1st weeks in ISWA.
Welcome again to all the new families in ISWA!
 I wish you all a pleasant stay in Perth just like me & my children do.

Anyways, I would like to thank again the organizers of the meeting for allowing me to be there with my jewelries. A million thanks again and I'm glad I can contribute a percentage of all sales to the school charity fund.

Many, many thank you ladies for all your support & patronage !
