Busy Start to 2012

Wow where have the school holidays gone - only one more week to go!

The first week of 2012 was spent in Ballina where my son was playing for the Hunter Valley U13s in a five day cricket carnival. Even though we had to attend cricket matches every day, we all had a fantastic time. DS had a great time with the other players, made some wonderful new friends and the parents had a great time too. He played exceptionally well and was even named Player of the Match for the second game. Since arriving home he has played more cricket for the Upper Hunter U14s team and also Senior Cricket on Saturday mornings. He worked out that he has played nearly 650 overs of cricket in the last three weeks and he is back at it this afternoon. You could say that my boy does love his cricket!

We decided to spend an extra day at the end of the carnival and managed to get to the beach for a few hours at Lennox Head. Here I am with DD. The water was certainly not warm enough for me to get in but the kids had fun. We also took a drive up to Byron Bay for ice cream and a look around.

I had good intentions of finishing off my Gardeners Journal blocks whilst watching all those overs of cricket and I thought I was so super organised until I got to the first match, pulled out my sewing back to discover that I had forgotten to pack all my threads, needles and scissors - OOPS lol.

Since coming home I have managed to fit in a little sewing around working and kids but I will leave that until the next post.

Chat soon
