Things have been busy here in the Dock...lots of celebrations and a few tears too. But mostly the former. We all headed north in August to celebrate my Dad turning 70 and my eldest sister turning 50. It was a wonderful mid winter break...
Then we arrived in the northern beach suburbs of Brisvegaas...my favourite part of my hometown.
There is more to say on special people...and I will try and blog a bit on them later - am suffering a bit of a summer cold at the moment so need to take another nap....just briefly I was very lucky to have my SILs 4 kids stay for a weekend while she underwent major surgery. Her youngest who is an absolute doll stayed on for a couple of extra days too. The surgery went well although recovery is a long process - my SIL is a very special person.
Also as it is father's day this weekend...there is a particular family in my thoughts - a gorgeous little boy whose brother is friend's with Kit and Hannah was recently diagnosed with leukemia...and I know that his Dad must be under enormous stress as he guards his family on the perilous and difficult journey they have only just begun.
The twins dancing concert at the local street festival went well - they were very impressive.
A gorgeous little boy who has been friends with Hannah since kindy read a delightful poem about his 'friend Hannah' at the school assembly - his mum sent me a video of it - and it brought a tear to my eye - and made me feel so proud of the wonderful children at the twins' school.
So yes some tricky times to deal with but so many people and events to celebrate....
