Day one went well, even with the slow start, both girls came down with a flu bug,but perked up in enough time to have some fun. First off we went to the Melbourne Museum, then to Collingwood Children's Farm, Then a spot of shopping and dinner at Ikea. Would have loved to have done more but the girls were still not a 100%.

Been very busy these past three months, stupid mad crazy busy, Work, kids, grand kids, More Work WORK!! Work !! Our  youngest son Douglas moved back home after 4 years away at Uni, and a work stint in Sydney, losts of moving stuff around to squeeze him in but we did it. Then he decided to go travel overseas for a few months. And after all that work , household reshuffling and a bit of sprucing up i was sick for a few weeks. I now have my own home office/crafting corner, nice bright and sunny even on a bleak winters day, i love it ! Did manage to make some Yoyo's,  i use to sell them on eBay for about 4 years and then stopped, but i started making some again , i missed making them, so easy and fun and very pretty. I have so many pretty things i want to make and not enough time. I'm off to Melbourne for a few days to have some long overdue family fun. See you in a few days!!
