Shhhh.. Don't tell the washing machine I'm sitting down!!!

My washing machine isn't very happy with me!!!
Yes it's that time of the year again... Boy wonder has arrived home from 2 weeks at cadet summer camp, and to say his washing is ripe is not only an understatement, but a downright lie!! lol!! And yes I can tell Logan is getting older (16 in November) rather than looking shamefaced at the green cloud rising from his bags, he chased his poor mother around the kitchen with the bag containing the worst offenders!!! Urrghhh!!  
Onto happier news! Logan got his exam results this week: He passed every subject and got 5 credits! so proud of him! Thank you so much Tracy for being the voice of reason when I was panicking!! Now onto the year of hell where he need to pass 4 highers 3 A's and a B to get into the Engineering course he wants!! Although he is now not sure he want to be an engineer, as he would prefer something more "hands on"! So time will tell!
Well it's time for another fantastic challenge over at Basic Grey Challenges! this fortnight we are as always sponsored by the wonderful Simon Says Stamp who are offering one lucky winner a $25 spending spree! So we would love to see your creations with the theme of :
