Catch Up

In case you're wondering....I'm still here! Working.....travelling.....organising even finding time for fun in between. Life is great - just busy.

It's been over a month since my last post.....terrible blogger! Time has slipped away without notice and Easter is almost upon us. The hint of winter is in the air.....we gathered firewood yesterday and lit the fire for the first time this year.

Scrapbooking has slowed right down....but still doing my bit for Show Us Your Stuff.....this month's challenge is all about one of my FAVE products......BUTTONS!

A nice easy one to have a go with.....why not enter?

Last weekend we took the family to Brisbane.....for two reasons - to visit my sister-in-law and her 3 boys.....and to collect our eBay purchase.....

Tim has been dreaming of having his own boat forever......I'm so glad it's finally happened for him.

He's always wanted to take us all to the footy as well......and it just happened that his team - the Newcastle Knights - were playing the Brissy Broncos while we were there!

......I'm the last person who would sit and watch the footy on telly, but I have to admit I LOVED being there at Suncorp Stadium soaking up the atmosphere. It was pretty intimidating however, wearing our Knights gear amongst the thousands of Broncos fans - even more so when we caught the free members bus to and from the game!

We caught the train into Southbank one day and wandered around the markets, had ice cream at COLD ROCK and lazed on the lawn. It's amazing how lovely it all looks - can hardly believe the whole place was under water a couple of months ago.

Have enjoyed getting through these books....

......this one about a family with three grown sons and their talent for stuffing up relationships had me cracking up out loud!

Odd One Out is my first inroduction to Monica McInerney....more of a novella really. Quite sweet - I like that it's Australian - but looking forward to getting my hands on the Faraday Girls.

Leaving you with one of our fabulous sunsets.....this is why I love Autumn.....
