...and so I'm back!



Hello! How are you all? Had fun while I was away? I did!!

And I know you are all hanging out to know how husband did with 3 kids on his own for the first time ever. And for 12 days no less. Well, he rocked!! House still standing, kids alive, with colds but alive. Fruit and vegies were eaten and......I even came home to clean house and even clean floors!! Yep. He got lucky ;)

And me. Had a blast! Bridesmaid dresses ordered, earings and shoes brought, girlfriends wedding was amazing, lots of chatting and drinking with family and friends, early 30th. Wonderful. Really wonderful.

On the Friday night I went to my old sewing group. So so happy to see everyone. Really wonderful that people made the effort. There was show and tell. And there was cake, for me! A patchwork one of course! And there was presents.....



YES!! All of these for me!! So lucky to have such wonderful sewing friends. I love that even though I am 1000's of km away they still think of me :) And I guess because of this little blog they can see what I am up too. Huge thank you to Tash, Louise, Rachel, Margaret, Judy, Michelle, Jacquie and an extra big thank you to Bron for organising it. Big hugs and kisses to you all XOXOX

And at Mum's I got to see giraffe and quilt together...









Sorry about the dark pictures, was running out the door to catch the plane when I remembered.

All in all, a great trip! Will be taking another one next year, ALL by myself. Thinking Stitches in Melbourn next year? Who's in?! xox

Looks like you had a fabulous time. It all goes too quick doesn't it. Might be up for "stitches" next year, might take a leaf out of your book and leave kids with hubby for a few days. Not so sure my floors will be clean when I get back though. lol

Maybe a trip down south should be an annual event for you. You sound refreshed and happy and excited and inspired about what you did and to be home. And no wonder - sounds like you had a lovely time and your kids got to spend time with their Dad.
