And A Month Has Passed

Wow! I have sat down to write a blog post so many times over the last month only to find something else needs to be done. We have had a busy month which included me turning another year older celebrated with some great friends from Bundaberg who came to stay and also with my SIL and niece and nephew at a delicious lunch in St Lucia.
We also returned to Bundaberg for a long weekend to visit family and friends and most importantly for me to attend my annual scrapbook retreat which was great as usual. The food was superb again. I didn't create many LO's but had a lovely time catching up with old friends. I will post some photos of my LO's soon.
Last Friday my Mum turned 70. She didn't want any fuss but of course we couldn't let it pass by. So I flew to Adelaide on Friday to attend a small surprise lunch for Mum at a restaurant in Adelaide. My brother flew in from Sydney and my sister was also down from the mine she works at in SA. We enjoyed a lovely long lunch full of laughter. Mum really did get a big surprise as you can see from her face! I flew back on Sunday and felt very tired after a busy few weeks but nothing like a long sleep in your own bed to recharge the batteries.
Nick and Penny are looking forward to the end of term this Thursday. They will have a few play dates whilst I work next week and we will reciprocate by having friends over on my non working days. Nick has started playing soccer and played goalie last weekend for part of the match which he did quite well at according to Craig.
Have a lovely week.
