The Noosa Holiday

As promised guys, here are some photo's of the fabulous 2 week Noosa holiday that we have just returned from. It was gorgeous and sunny and we were lucky enough for the rain to hit us as our heads hit the pillow.

Jordan and Jackson at the beach.
Me and my youngest Jackson.
Checking all your blogs.... beside the pool

Catching Fish..

The view from my deckchair beside the pool... hey, I couldn't resist.

We did ALOT of walking and the boys riding, swimming and fishing. The best fishing I have ever had... we caught 12 whiting which we kept and cooked. The first time I have ever actually ate what I caught.... admittedly though I haven't caught big enough to eat - so that was a highlight.

I just can't believe how much the boys grow when they are with us 24/7. As Dan and I both work full time, its a real pleasure to spend so much time with them to see how they have grown up so much. My eldest Jordan is just so confident in the water now and can swim across the pool, big arms and all and he is only 4... and my youngest Jackson, well he just has no fear (not such a good thing with water) however, still very impressive.

Back to work we toddled off today, Jordan settled back in nicely at Kindy as did Jackson at his day mum.... as for me - quite surprised actually, went to work with a smile on my face and motivation in my heart (I wonder how long that will last... LOL).

I now have a few things to look forward to and that is receiving my artwork in the mail from Kaili's Art.. Kaili is posting my artwork tomorrow so hopefully receive it this week, you will all be updated - trust me!

Also looking forward to the blogette party that we are holding to finally meet some of the wonderful people that we meet in blogland in person... if you would like to come please email me to let me know if you can come. It will be on Monday 30th November from 11am to 2pm at Laidley (between Ipswich and Toowoomba). It's bring a plate, a handmade gift, swimmers and a sense of fun and meeting new people. If you haven't RSVP'd yet, please do so. It would be great to meet you if you can make it.

The Handmade Expo is also on this Saturday at the Ipswich Turf Club from 8am to 2pm... I am also looking forward to this as I love expo days - so many people to see, chat too and meet... it's a great day - so come along if you have some free time.

And last but not least I have to mention Handmade Heaven... they are expanding into the shop next door, making the little slice of heaven even bigger by welcoming Di-Licious cupcakes as well... so for all your cupcake needs head into Handmade Heaven... they are looking at opening very soon - I will keep you posted on that as well.

That's about all from me...

Take care.
