We have had a lovely day on the beach at Bribie Island today. The kids have been swimming in the sea and jumping the waves and have loved every minute. We even had a game of hopscotch on the beach.

Friday Andy took Lauren and William upto Kings Beach and Dickie Beach on the Sunshine Coast, they had a whale of a time kyaking and swimming in the sea..whilst I was at work!!!

Holiday time






Its school holiday time again here in Brizzy and me and Adie are taking some time off with the kids. Yesterday we decided to take a trip up to Currimundi, one of many superb beaches along the Sunshine Coast. We were joined a little later by our friends Duncan and Julie and their family. As per script the weather was faultless with a southerly breeze blowing along the shore line to stop us all from getting too hot. This along with a picturesque setting normally only seen in travel brochures set aside for the rich and famous made for an idyllic day.
The kids made the most of the day swimming in the crystal clear Pacific ocean only leaving the water to have their lunch.
The day ended with us all watching another fabulous Queensland sunset to the west over the Glasshouse Mountains.

Susanne Vists...and the River Festival






We had a visitor from Perth this weekend. Susanne our friend from Chesterfield (who now lives in Perth) had a business trip to Brisbane last week and came to stay with us for the weekend. It was lovely to see her again.
We had a few bottles of wine on Friday night. hic hic.
Saturday we went to Sails on Suttons Beach and had a lovely breakfast sat in the sunshine. We then came back home and sat by our pool for a few hours and then took a trip to Brisbane to watch the River Festival. It was a lovely day and a fantastic evening. We started off with a BBQ by the river and then watched the firework display and the F1 11 do its dump and burn, what a fantastic sight.

Sunday we waved a sad goodbye to Susanne, we then took a trip to Woody Point for a cheeky beer and and ice cream to what we thought would finish the weekend on a nice note.

Then Andy had to water the new turf we have had laid to the front garden. I had just taken him a coffee out, when Sharron from across the road came over...we ended up drinking yet another couple of bottles on wine....I think I need to open a vineyard!!! It was a great end to a fantastic weekend. Gary, Sharron and the kids stayed a few hours and we threw a few things on the Barbie, it was a great impromtu end to the weekend. (Must say I did wobble a bit on the stairs to bed!!!)

What a Year!!



Well we celebrated a year in Oz last weekend and had a fantastic time. We started the weekend off on the Friday night with a meal out with Julie and Duncan...we turned up at their house in their clothes, which was really funny as we walked in and they realised what we had done (thanks to Lauren and Paisley for sneaking the clothes out).
Saturday morning we all took a trip to Scarborough and had a BBQ breakfast, followed by a few games of cricket.
Saturday night was spent at Julie and Duncans where we all dressed up and partied the night away with some of our friends. It was a really great night.
Sunday was a recovery day!!!
