yeah I know....I said a post a week....well I have a good excuse - I have been so sick since retreat that I haven't even unpacked yet....everything is still a mess but I am starting to feel a little better and I am hoping to come home tomorrow after lunch with the family and get stuck into it and have it all done - NEW stock and all....


Well I have to rub it in too - My retreat was FANTASTIC!!!! I had a ball and I am pretty sure that about 99% of the attendees would say the same. Check out some of the photos that were taken on the Saturday night - our 1920's style fancy dress with dinner in the main house!!!!!!


The simply elegant Jodi (goddessjodi)!!!!



And here is Rondelle, Shazz, Jodi, Barb and Kym!!!!



And Nee and Coralie!!!!

Here is my Mummy (Karen) and I - aren't we just stunning????? (well Mum is anyways hehehehe)



And here is all of us! This photo was taken at the front of the Main Mansion.

Such happy times....but then there is some very sad news too....Some very good long time family friends of ours lost their only son last week. I am still finding it very hard to deal with and can't imagine how they both must be feeling right now, as he was just the same age as Shannon - such a horrible loss of life for someone so young and who had so much living to do. RIP Aaron you will be eternally missed xx

Well that is it from me tonight - I absolutely promise that I will be back soon to share some more exciting news!!!!!
