Congratulations Stuart and Katie

Adam and I spent 4 days in the Hunter Valley in NSW to attend the wedding of Stuart and Katie on the 13th March. It was at the Peppers Creek Chapel and afterwards in the Peppers Creek Barrel room. It was lovely to just have time to ourselves for a change, a big thanks to Mum and Neck for help with the kids. We drove down { Much to my disgust } on the Friday - i found a little antique shop in Uralla and bought and awesome old trunk , once we finally found where we were staying we unpacked. We went with everyone to the local pub/restaurant for dinner which was nice. On the saturday morning we headed into Cessnock for breakfast - mind you it was after 10am as we were not adjusted to the daylight savings. The wedding was at 3.45pm that afternoon, it was lovely, Katie organised things well, i'm sure everyone had a wonderful time. on the sunday we had breakfast with Ádam's mum Lyn and his brother Shaun before they headed back to Sydney, we then went to Tyrrell's Winery and picked up 2 wine barrells to bring home with us for the bar - My gosh if anyone had stuck their heads in the car window they would have though we were alcoholics. We spent sunday night at Paul and Vicki's in Port Macquarie {A Big Thankyou} and had dinner with them at the club in Wauchope. On monday morning we headed home via Kirralea's to say a big HI and then to neck's to pick up the 2 wee one's and then finally home to the other 2 - I tell you what reality hit with a huge bang in about i'd say not even 5 minutes. Thanks for the invite Mr and Mrs Grevillevski { A combination of both their surnames - Greville and Mukevski - as Katie is keeping her surname}

Heaven Sent Me Two Angels

This LO is for two challenges.
1. The Boxx WC - to use a piece of vellum
2. Toowoomba Scrap Apples - create a LO drawing inspiration from a noted artist or piece of artwork. If you know me well you would have realised by now that the Cherubs from Raphael's Sistine Madonna has been my favourite piece of art like forever. So it's only fitting to compare my two angels with my original 2 favourite angels.TFL

Student Life

Well it's official - I stepped foot on campus today to start my next adventure as a 1st Year Nursing student - WOW is all I can say, I am still quite overwhelmed by it all but the fear of the unknown is now gone. Hopefully I can make a few friends to make my time there a bit easier and i'm also hoping that my brain will kick into the mode it needs to be in to absorb as much as it needs to. I'm not hoping for miracles and I know it's gunna be a hard slog but i've committed myself to it so - BRING IT ON.....
