G'day .... See Ya!
Well, well.... It is hard to believe it but Sept is nearly over. Spring has well and truly sprung - it is my favourite time of the year and I find myself almost regretting that on the weekend the whole family will be jetting off to the other side of the world where it is autumn. Only 'almost' as of course I am absolutely beside myself with excitement about our very own European Vacation. On Saturday it will be Phil's and my 17th wedding anniversary - and if Mum was still alive it would be her and Dad's 50th wedding anniversary. One of my other sisters is also celebrating her wedding anniversary on that date - but don't ask me the exact length of her marriage - at least 22 years cos her eldest turned 21 this year! Things have been busy here preparing for the holiday, coping with the busy cycle of work that is teaching/exams/marking/reports and helping out as much as we can with the school's first fete in 7 years - and the big fundraiser for our P&F. Finally I am at the point where I only have one day of actual teaching and one day of work with supervisions to do. So time to take stock of where we are up to and what has been happening so far in the Dock.... My beautiful mother. Fancy this photo was taken almost 50 years ago... she has been gone for 3 years and we still miss her so much.
