Busy weekend and a giveaway is coming

Off to Shepparton for the weekend
This weekend my youngest Michael 26 is competeing in the Shepparton Half Ironman
This is his first triathlon. The race is on Sunday and the weather in the area is meant to reach 40 C ( 104 Farenheit), way too hot for my liking. He will be swimming 1.8km(1.2 miles) riding 9okm (56 miles) and running 22km (13.5 miles) such a difficult thing to do in the heat. Apparently the race can be shortened if the temperature is too extreme. The race starts at 7.00am Sunday. Fingers crossed that he completes this race in a time that he is happy with.

Maree from Buyster Rugs contacted me about having a giveaway on my blog.
I have selected this cute City Streets Kid's Rug for myself as I think that Riley would love playing with it on the days that I babysit him. Apparently the rug is on its way. Once it comes I will see how much fun Riley will have with it and then a Giveaway will be coming your way.
A fabulous gift voucher for the winner to spend at Buysterrugs .
Sorry but this Giveawy will only be open to those from Australia as Buyster is based in Australia and will only ship within Australia.
The Giveaway will be coming soon.

Hi Alison,
Just catching up on your posts. I wonder what that shop must be like. When I went to Sydney I fell in love with a department store there, and we had a Biggy Best nearby which I adored.

Good luck to your son Alison.

Ooh! 40 degrees is definitely way too hot for that sort of thing. Just hope that the prediction is wrong and it will be cooler.
Regarding my couches, they are not slip covered, I got them from Freedom, you can choose slip covered ones too, but they cost more.
