to say hello…..it’s been a little while, time has slipped by ever so quick, caught me unawares.
But here I am.
Daughter had a lovely extended 21st birthday, enjoyed every second of it. Since then I have been to one of my ‘girls’ 50th birthday and met new friends and chatted the night away until 1.30 in the morning, when I left there I picked up my daughter and a friend who were celebrating a friends 21st a couple of streets away, I dropped off the friend and headed for home, made a cuppa and had a chat with Kaila, I think I crawled into bed around 2.30am…..it was a really good night, my friend certainly had a 50th to remember. I think the party finished around 4am, she was a tad ill the next day (she doesn’t normally drink, but she did that night)
Last weekend I had to be up at 5.30 on Saturday morning to take Kaila to the airport, she was off to Brisbane (Queensland) to dance in a Kylie Minogue (impersonator) show, she had a ball. I then had a 60th birthday luncheon and then off to a friends sons 21st, once again had a great night chatting and meeting new and old friends…had a couple of drinks and lots of lovely food to eat. All the young ones went to a club and got home around 6am in the morning. I was so tired and was very happy to get to bed around 1am. On Sunday morning I had brunch with my two ‘girls’ one of which was the 50th party and the other was the mum of the boy who turned 21 the night before…….. eggs, bacon, tomato and toast and of course a pot of Earl Grey tea and a lot of chatting about the two parties was had.
I picked Kaila up from the airport at 6pm on Sunday, I met the girls and boys she dances with and the singer (Kylie impersonator) nice bunch of people.
There she is on the right with her good friend, in their costumes ready for the night. After the gig they went and partied and danced until the sun came up, had a couple of hours sleep then off to the airport. The flight was delayed by 4 hours, oh 4 hours more sleep they could have had……..she was in bed early Sunday night……so was I.
I didn’t have to work Monday, I am working tomorrow (Wednesday) instead, I was so grateful not to get up at 6am.
I have been slowly rippling along, am on my 32nd row now, will take a photo soon, I saw a great idea in Mollie Makes # 7, some Japanese embroidery, so thought I would give it a go and make some Christmas cards, something a little different.
Work is still going well, we have our Christmas dinner on the 9th Dec. I need to find a female and male pressie for $15 each for our Kris Kringle, not much out there for $15 these days, however I am sure I will find something nice, somewhere.
Was reading, Knitsofacto blog today, Annie asked the question ‘why do I blog’ I am so glad I started as I have met the most amazing strong, caring, compasionate, crafty, loving women here in blog land. I have laughed and cried along with you, felt proud of your achievements and your families achievements too.
It’s a lovely world and shows there are so many like minded women and I mean in the sense that we all want what is best for our families who we adore and to live in a peaceful world.
