Holiday fun!

Hi all,

Let me tell you these school holidays did not start out fun. Every time we tried to do something it would rain. We tried to go to the beach – it rained. We tried to go to the mountains for a picnic – it rained. I gave up on the outdoors and thought mum and I would try taking the boys to the movies. Everyone does it so why not us….we will not be doing it again for a long time. They actually did not enjoy it, I think the movie ‘Cars 2’ lost them a bit and they are the ultimate outdoors boys who can’t sit still for even half an hour.

This 2nd week of the holidays has been better, we have had a play day with friends and rides at beach.

This is at Bribie Island, we rode across the island to the surf side were the boys had a play.

And picked flowers for mummy!

Then we went back to the calm side of the island for fish and chips for lunch. It was a beautiful day!

The only crafty thing I have been up to is finishing off the 800 odd half square triangle units for the blue and cream quilt. I think I should give it a proper name!

Can you see the little mountain of ears I have been trimming off? And there is still quite a lot waiting to get to this stage!

And Hubby and I are having a “date” tonight! The first night out without the kids for years! Yay!

Sorry to hear about the weather making it hard for your boys on their holiday. I'm sure as soon as they are back at school, it will be beautiful. Isn't it always like that? At least you got a couple of nice outings. What an enormous task with your 800 hst!But I'm sure it's all worth it in the end. Have a great weekend. Love Vreni xx

I will be keeping my eye open to see your quilt finished. Look like you and your children had a great day out. I used to take my children out all the time when they was young I miss those days. I do hope you have a great night out together we all need these nights.
