Recent Times

We recently had a week away spending time in Mackay and Airlie Beach with family. After a few days of rain, we were lucky enough to have glorious sunshine. It was lovely to catch up with close family and for Nathan to spend time with his cousins.

This was the first beach holiday he'll remember as he was only 14 months old when we went to Broome. While he loved playing on the beach and making sandcastles, he was very disappointed not being able to swim in the ocean, thanks to stingers and sea lice!

The lovely Sharon and her husband Barry came to Airlie to see was wonderful to meet her in person. We felt like old friends, eventhough it's not really that long ago that I got to know Sharon through Shutter Girls. Barry had a great chat with the fellows and friendships were forged.

There have been a number of birthdays in our family recently. My eldest nephew Billy turned 16 last Saturday and now has his learner's driver's licence.

My little granddaughter Zhia turned 5 on Sunday and is now a big school girl.

On Tuesday my sisters celebrated their 40th birthday!

Now I have a whole stack of new photos ready to scrap, so keep an eye out as they slowly come to appear here.

By the way, I hope you all had a lovely Easter. With the help of Billy, Nathan left a note for the Easter Bunny saying where he was.
