We've been in old gaols, we've been on horse carousels, we've been to the beach, to the footy, to the woods and back. We've been laughing - and crying (the kids) - and losing our patience (the parents). We've had two weeks of family time over the school holidays and have gotten away when we could. In between, we have been dealing with arthritis in the neck (me), loving Bowen Therapy (me), hoping for a full recovery (Justin) and learning more about our whippet and why he sings (all of us). And then there have been fish and chips on lazy nights, cookies (Justin), some of Australia's best vanilla slices (me) and much playing with Smurfs (the kids). So there has been Smurf buying (the parents - only vintage will do - and that includes the cottages), lots of Lego play (all), reading the third Millennium trilogy (me), looking into laser discs (Justin) and paving the front path.
And throughout these times we've kept the business going and have been wrapping like mad people, thanks for the many orders days-in and day-out. Have I have five minutes to upload new fabrics? No, more is the pity - but it all changes on Monday...hurrah!
