What a fabulous way to spend a Sunday.
We went to watch the band ‘The Distance’ at a little fundraiser they held.

Next year they are once again off to Tamworth and the accommodation costs are a killer.
So they held ‘A Day on the Green at Dazza’s’ to help raise some funds.
Check out their website .

The grandchildren Lachlan, Chloe and Riley had a fun time playing with their grandad Max


My Dad was supposed to go to rehab last week but took a turn for the worse last Monday. We still don’t know what is really going on. He is not eating and is unable to walk. He has balance issues and has the shakes. He keeps drifting in and out of sleep. Tomorrow he is having a Nuclear Medicine PET Scan of his whole body – if like me you don’t know what it means click here and have a read. Hopefully they will find something there

Dads are very precious x

I found your delightful blog while searching on line for craft teachers here in our Brisbane region and had to stop and compliment you on all the lovely things you have going on here.

My shop is up in QLD, All About Paper is on the bay at Cleveland and we will be posting advertisements for card teachers. If you happen to know of any do pass on my contact details as I am sure you know some very creative artists.
