Happy Holidays!

for today... outside my window... a sensational autumn day i am thinking... I really must make the most of this second week of school holidays i am thankful for... for my understanding and loving husband i am wearing... 3/4 tracky and tshirt i am going... to try and remain centred this week i am currently reading... still the same book ... don't want it to end i am hoping... the weather stays fine for the break on my mind... having to get going on my term 2 planning for teaching pondering these words... "Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release! " from the kitchen... toasted sandwiches for dinner around the house... watching F1 with Denny one of my favorite things... playing "fashion shop" with Katie i'm creating... heaps of scrap pages a few plans for the rest of the week... haircut, shopping, library, visit Mum & Dad from my lens..... Hughie awarded student of the term


Football season has started .... Hugh was so excited!





We were fortunate enough to have a few days away at our favourite destination ....





Lots of things to do ... 'fun buns' for Katie, lots of walking and exploring with the children even going swimming .... brrrrr!





And of course time out for me with my camera to shoot and have some fun ....





Yesterday Denny finally cashed in on the 50th birthday gift I bought him last October .... hot laps in a V8 Super car .... he would do it more often if we could afford it! LOL!





Have a super week everyone!

Isn't it lovely to be rested and find some mojo! Even better to know we have a few bonus days left at the end of next week!!

OK, so how weird does it feel to think that as you & Den were watching the F1 Grand Prix across the other side of the world, Iain & I were doing exactly the same over here!!! I used to be a big fan of F1 but over the past few years I began to get bored just watching the cars go round & round with little or no action, so I switched to MotoGP (definitely a Rossi fan here!) but I really enjoyed the race this morning ... and what about Mark Webber!!! Wow! What a come back, I couldn't believe the difference after his pit-stop. Awesome racing!!! Anyhoo, hope you have a fabulous week ahead my friend & I hope the weather stays kind (to us both!)xoxo
