Bad Blogger

This poor neglected blog. Since I've started working 4 days, life just seems to get in the way. I always think, I'll just wait until I have the photo edited to put with the post and then it never happens.
Here's what we've been up to:
We've been to see Mary Poppins on stage at QPAC (lovely) and How To Train Your Dragon on stage at Brisbane Entertainment Centre (spectacular). I had another birthday, the biggy is getting closer :(

Nick has been invested into cubs (all official now).

Nick also received a ribbon (1st, 3rd,3rd) in every race he swam at his school swimming carnival with little practice and professing he didn't want to swim as he thought he'd come last!

I went to watch Penny at dancing and her tap, jazz and ballet have really progressed although I am not so sure that she is as keen. I have been learning how to make jam for the school fete on 2 x afternoons. Craig and I were taken to see the NRL at Suncorp Stadium which was great - close game between the Broncos and Cowboys. I attended an art and craft show as well as the Matilda markets (gorgeous) with my good friend, Penny. Penny and Nick attended a tennis clinic in the first week of the holidays and I had a week off. They really enjoyed the tennis and Nick came runner up in his group and received a medal. We visited Yamba in northern NSW for Easter and it was beautiful. The weather was great for playing tennis, swimming and playing on the beach (top photo). The waves were spectacular and we saw some great surfers. Nick has started soccer again and they seem to be improving every week.
Craig has been away alot and he is heading off on his big RFDS bike ride to Longreach (over 6 days) in less than 2 weeks. He has been training as much as he can and has lost 16kg although I think he is feeling some trepidation about the 1200km he has to ride. He has just purchased a new bike which should be able to fly him considering how much it cost!
 I haven't been doing much scrapbooking and have been selling off my really old scrapping goods that I will never use, on facebook. I don't plan on giving up scrapping but just need to reduce the size of my stash. I have got rid of quite a bit and have become an expert on the cost of postage!
I will put up some more photos soon. I'll try and be back sooner than 2 mths with more news. Resolutions/goals are taking a huge beating this year, oops.
Have a good week.
