Bits and Bobs.

Hi all. The last week has been one of those where nothing much has been happening, but I have been really busy. Every had one of those? Last Wednesday I went to a talk on food additives/preseveratives etc. It was really interesting and included the 'numbers' that are thought to cause cancer. It was different from one of the other talks I have been to as this one told you more of what you can feed your children instead of telling you what not to feed them and leaving your feeling completely overwhelmed. The second part of the talk was an after hours visit to Coles to put together your own shopping list.

Sunday we went to the Vintage Car Festival in Gin Gin. The kids had a great time (men included). We did the women and children 'stuff' and checked out the craft and preserves area and the men did the manly 'stuff' and poured over every inch of the cars. We finally dragged them away after nearly three hours as the kids were starving and we wanted them to continue their manly feelings and cook the barbie. Sunday night after putting two very tired kids to bed early, I went out to dinner with a bunch of girlfriends. What a great way to spend a night- gossip, alcohol, more gossip, burgers (went to Jimmy Deans) more alcohol and of course coffee and CAKE. Well girls we will get together next month to do it all again. See you then.

Happy Mothers Day.

Had a great day today. I was totally spolit. I got a sleep-in and a shower by myself (no interuptions by kids asking where anything was or quickly throwing clothes off and jumping in too), a cup of tea and presents. Shannon drew a picture of the two of us shopping and framed it in pop sticks, James gave me a handprint in the shape of a butterfly and I got a great big box of chocolates. We went to Kings Park for the day with my family and my brother-in-laws family (my sisters husband). I was a bit dubious of the weather, but it turned out to be a nice day. We walked through the gardens and up to the war memorials. We also walked to Jacobs Ladder as a few people in the group had never been there and wanted to see it. I on the other hand new exactly where it was. I used to pound up and down these steps four times a week at 6am prior to work. All 221 of them! Was I mad? Yes! Was I fitter then? Yes! I must admit the 'eye candy' (firemen) was a great incentive as they ran up and down the stairs every morning. I don't think I could make it even half way up now.

A friend sent me this txt this morning. Thought I would share it with you.
A Mum is gods love in action. She looks with her heart and feels with her eyes. A mum is the bank where children deposit all their worries and hurt. A mum is the cement that holds her family together and her love lasts a lifetime. Send this to a good mum. I just did. Isn't that nice? Hope you like the txt too Just J.
