my poor little blog has been a bit neglected of late, what with starting a new school term and keeping up with the house work, but more importantly... meeting old and new faces!! back row left - poppy Jim, paddy holding his son Henry, mister moo, Clinton

the 'mummies' were taking photos.
mister moo's brother Clinton and his lovely family came up from NSW for a week long visit. it has been 7 years since we have seen them (except Clint's overnight stay for paddy's wedding 2005) so we had one little family member to meet and they had three. (Mia, Claudia and Henry)
we met up with them at paddy's house (micks younger brother) and had a lovely lunch and a great catch up. what i love about family is that no matter how long you spend apart you can just pick up where you left off and that gap just closes up. the children got on so well straight away and played the afternoon away.
Claudia, Lexie, Michaela, Mia, lili and Henry
Lexie is just such a sweet natured, easy going girl and doted on Claudia the whole time. she is so pretty!
paddy, Clinton and mick (yes that is a muppet t-shirt mick is wearing, my fav character ANIMAL !)
they then headed back up the coast to stay with micks dad and be 'tourists' with the promise that they would be back down to stay with us for a couple of nights. our two nights together were great and really makes me wish they still lived here. for some reason i didn't take many photos on those two nights but the children just had a ball playing and the conversation never stopped for the adults. they are now safe and sound back home and enjoying the last of their holidays.
~I LOVE MY FAMILY~
some other things that have kept me busy are finally finishing this girl...
she has safely arrived in her new home and her new owners are more than happy with her!! (thank god) and the other thing that i cant wait to post about is my day at lilly cottage. i haven't uploaded the photos yet but i will in the next few days.
i am still on my count down to my long service...8 weeks to go!!
