It has certainly been an eventful few weeks around South East Queensland. The predicted rain event that I mentioned in my previous post did occur, dropping approx. 30cm (12 inches) of rain in a little over 24 hours. Couple that with gale force winds and you have a recipe for flooding. The creek at the back of us did rise quickly, but stayed well clear of the house. But we weren't quite prepared for losing power for 3 days in very warm humid conditions. We are definitely having some extreme weather events around the globe at the moment.
Add to this a delayed start to school and it has been a very mixed up time. I am hoping that as school enters its second full week, a routine of sorts is starting to form. I know the kids are quite tired as the timetable and activities are quite different in Grade 5 and that has taken some getting used to. So I have absent from the blog, enforced initially, but we had a bit more time to relax this weekend (last weekend was just full of cleaning).
So to this wonderful photo. I have picked out the Kraft, hearts and who can't resist the pink stripes.

Edited to Add: had I looked more closely at my addictive challenge blog list I would have noticed that this card also qualifies for the Pinspired challenge - gotta love pink and red.
I have had the Magical Moments stamp set on my desk for a while, a good friend from work left fairly suddenly as her husband accepted a job in Melbourne. She is of Indian descent and is smitten with peacocks.
