Hello and a update

Sorry it has been a while since I have been to visit but shall be round soon!  First unfortunately last week we decided not to pursue the craft business purchase:(   For many reasons!  Very disappointing as rather liked the idea and had many meetings with Wendy who is such a lovely lady, Florewen is still for sale and is based at Bacchus Marsh if anyone else is interested.  So for now Edward still has me bossing him around at the factory lol!

Good news celebrated my 44th Birthday yesterday and what a fantastic day I had with my DH (who took the day off work) DD and DS who are on school holidays.

Got taken on a tour of Shadowfax Winery, then wine tasting and had a beautiful lunch there too! Then off to the beach for a beautiful stroll in the sun.

Glorious afternoon at the beach.  Called in at home and found lots of lovely birthdays wishes via email from facebook and The Outlawt!  And a beautiful TGF card off Emma.  Thanks girls.  Got a beauitful purple necklace off Rosanna, matching ear-rings off Morgan with a Papercraft Mag, Smallville Season 9 off Edward and a ticket to go see Dolly Parton in November WOO HOO!!!  My surprise evening meal was out to the Thai Fresh Chilli restaurant for the evening, it was excellent, though I think we all ate too much lol! Shopped after and got a purple bag and purple hoodie. AWESOME DAY.

Seen the boys off this morning they are going skiing for the weekend, so Rosanna and I are going to have a girlie weekend, which I believe will include a trip to the zoo.  We shall be doing some crafting too, though I have been busy knitting a cardigan for Rosanna which is nearly finished.

I shall be back soon, hopefully I will still know how to use my copics lol!  So hoping you and your families are all well.  Happy Holidays for you all with kiddies on school break, take careX:)


  1. So great to hear from you. I have been wondering how the business was going. Shame you aren't going ahead with it but there must be something else waiting around the corner. Happy Belated Birthday too...sounds like you had a wonderful day.

  2. Sorry the business buy didn't work out but I guess everything happens for a reason.

    Happy (belated) Birthday! Sounds like a splendid time celebrating and having some girly time to go to the zoo and craft sounds fun too!
