happy days...




Last week was not the most fabulous week around here, several sick kids, coughs & puffers, medication & lists, it was stressful and worrying and I'm glad it's over. Thanks so much to all of you who sent me good wishes, I really appreciate your kind words & thoughts. Athough there is still a little bit of coughing & snuffling the kids are all so much better which is a relief.



So after a fairly crappy week it was great to have a fantastic, fun filled weekend! Driving through the beautiful autumny countryside to ballet on Saturday with three of my girls, singing along to girl songs was a great way to kick off the weekend. Well, I guess the kick off was really the night before at a local pub where I had a beer or two with some great mates & listened to a band led by a teacher from school. Fun!!

Other highlights of the weekend were playing footy with the kids at the Hepburn Oval & watching Rosie master the monkey bars.

What a stunning day, blue skies and green grass, so lovely to be outside enjoying some beautiful weather & time together.
Later on I went on a road trip to Melbourne with my ace mate Kate, in search of crafty dinner fun in Carlton. We made it to the Sew It Together dinner despite a few hiccups involving wrong turns & tangled wool, to have an amazing time with lots of fellow crafty bloggers. So wonderful to see the gorgeous Gypsy, Nic, Bianca, Abbe, Mary Jane, Julie, Liesl & many more. Driving home to Daylesford through the dark, dark night with mist swirling could have been spooky but chatting with Kate made the time fly & it wasn't long before I was tucked up in my bed wondering if it had all been a dream.
Today was an amazing day too. After the school fun run this morning I met up with Michelle & we took off for Lancefield, to the old Macedonia Hotel which is a hotel no longer & now sells antiques & collectables.

We weren't there just to look however...


..we were being filmed for a Tourism Victoria commercial! Look out for us sometime in the future, drinking coffee & checking out the antiques in this amazing old building. It was so much fun, and hilarious!
So I'm feeling very content now after my big weekend, sitting in bed here all snug and warm & thinking how lucky I am to have my gorgeous family & such beautiful & fun friends to hang out with. Happy days! Hope all is well in your world, see you soon sweeties xo

Really glad to hear everyone is feeling better. Sounds like a bit of a nightmare - you're a champion to hold it all together.
