A Quick Update ...

Hi All !!

Just a quick update from me ... I don't know whether I will get a chance to post again until next week, as we are heading off tomorrow (Friday) night to our caravan at Bonnie Doon.

Had another busy day today ... took Chicky to school (as usual), then headed off to the local Shopping Centre - Knox City. Got myself some scrapbooking stuff, a couple of bits of clothes for Chicky in a clearance sale, and then did the groceries ... what fun !!! When I got home, I chatted to one of my neighbours for awhile, out in the street, then unpacked my groceries. Spent a brief moment checking emails, had some lunch, then headed to the retirement village again to do some more typing for my elderly friend. Straight to school to pick up Chicky, then home for 1/2 an hour for her to change, recharge, and then off back to school for her school sports evening. She was wonderful. They had a sort of Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony ... she was in a fabulous dance routine, where she was the centre-piece at one stage with an amazing acrobatic walk-over thing ... check out the photo (she stood herself up again, from that position ... bet you can't do that !!) ....

The athletic events were great, she did well, bringing home 7 or 8 ribbons (they all got ribbons, whether they placed or not, which is wonderful ... no kid missed out). The events finished around 8pm ... there was a BBQ and drinks available, so we had dinner there (yay, I didn't have to cook!!).

Now I am home. I quickly hung up two loads of washing, and now sit at the computer catching up on emails and blogging. Think I might make it an early night, as I have another big day tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I will try to read a few blogs whilst I am away, but the weather is looking to be really hot, so we may just be sitting at the pool, or down by the lake (or in it !!), so I may not want to even go near the computer !! If not, I apologise, but I will catch you all next week, before we head off for 4 days of camping !!!

So, take care everyone,

MEOW

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Alice said...

You're perfectly correct - I can't do that. I can't get into the position in the first place, being brutally honest.

Well done to chicky!

My day has been productive: spent most of it trying to sort out our server and ringing people who could sort it or knew the telephone number of people who could. That and leaving long comments on Susie's (Soz about that Susie *apologetic smile* there are two more now) and Ann's Blogs.
Oh, and reading while the damn computers restarted, twice.

Loves me my Agatha Christi, does I.

Toodles! :-)

Jenn ... you must be a tall person, not to be able to touch your toes !! My husband, although not really tall, is very stiff backed (or whatever you call it)and can only just get past his knees with his hands. Me, on the other hand, a rather chubby person, can put my hands flat to the ground. I guess everyone has different degrees of flexibility.

Susie ... Thanks, Susie, I love my life ... it is good, and I am blessed. Should be a great weekend, hope to get lots of photos.

Bossy Britches ... I can get into that position, but only from a laying down position ... then once I'm there, I collapse !!!! You must do alot of Yoga, or something, good on ya !! I'm jealous !!

Alice ... oh well, it's not a position one really needs much, is it !?!?! Don't you hate it, when you have to spend so much time waiting for the computer to re-boot. It is a real pain !!

Have a great weekend, take care, Meow

Devil Mood said...

Wow, I'm envious. Sounds like such a great weekend to come - I'd love to get some rest and be around nature for a while :)
Good acrobatics, Chicky! :)

megz_mum said...

Hi there! Followed you over from Granny's place. Enjoy your weekend away, hope it isn't too hot!

Meow said...

Devil Mood ... thanks, it should be a wonderful weekend. It's always nice to just get away, no matter where.

Megz Mum ... hello, and thanks for visiting. I'll drop on over to your place soon. I think it will be hot ... they are forecasting mid to high 30ÂșC's over the weekend. Ouch !!

Take care, Meow

Jamie Dawn said...

Enjoy!

That picture is causing me pain. I'm not very limber.

Meow said...

Jamie ... I can relate to that comment !!!! She was like that for ages, I was cringing just watching her, hoping she wouldn't collapse !!
You have a good one, too, take care, Meow

DayByDay4-2Day said...

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

Maybe if I'd do that I'd be walking like that for the rest of my life.
Happy Trip and take care

angel, jr. said...

I've never understood the scrapbooking phenomenon.

Sharon K said...

Always looking forward to the next post. Have a good and safe weekend and I will be here waiting.......

Tab said...

Have a Happy Weekend :)

Cathy said...

Have a wonderful time!

Viamarie said...

She can do that? She can become the next Olympic gold medalist.

Enjoy your weekend!

Michelle said...

Have a great weekend...it must be Labor Day, is it it Moomba weekend?

Kylee said...

Wow thats amazing.

I hope you have a wonderful time!!

Kylee said...

Wow thats amazing.

I hope you have a wonderful time!!

momyblogR said...

You're darn right I can't do that. My word...I'd be in traction for a MONTH!!

Ah, the flexabiiity of youth. Great picture.

Autumn said...

I hope you enjoy your weekend. It sounds like you need a day off after such a busy week. I felt a bit envious that you have a neigbor to chat with in the street. Most people where I live are to busy to even say hello to each other much less take time to visit.
Take care, and I will check back with you soon.

Chloe said...

have fun kitty! please don't go near the computer when you are having fun. xxxx

Dick said...

Camping in your RV, that sounds familiar. We had rain (and wind) yesterday & last night in southern Arizona, the first since Oct 18th. I think by tomorrow the weather is supposed to be back to normal.

Is the Mazda MX-5 car called a Miata in Oz as it is here in the USA?

angel, jr. said...

Have a great get away.

Meow said...

Heidi ... thank you.

Connie ... thank you, too. The dancing kitty is exhausted, and really needed a break !!

Friday's Child ... yeah, with my luck the wind would change and I'd be stuck like that forever !!

Angel ... scrapbooking is fun ... have you ever tried it ??

Sharon ... thank you so much.

Tab ... thank you.

Cathy ... thank you.

Kylee ... yep, pretty amazing !! Thanks.

Momyblogr ... I agree ... the flexibility of youth !!

Autumn ... I guess I am lucky, I have some wonderful neighbours. There is always someone around to stop and chat with, or drop in for a coffee or something with. It's nice.

Chloe ... thank you, and I didn't even take my computer out of it's case this weekend .. that's a first !!

Dick ... I'm not really sure, but as far as I know, the Mazda MX5 is just called a Mazda MX5 !!! I could be wrong, though !!

Angel ... thank you !!

Great to hear from everyone, thank you. Will post about my weekend shortly. Take care, Meow

Meow said...

Ooops, sorry Michelle !! Yes it is Labour Day weekend, usually Moomba, but there is no Moomba this year due to the Commonwealth Games !! Apparently there was a Moomba Parade, though !! Take care, Meow

Meow said...

Ooops, again ... sorry Viamarie !! Don't know what's wrong with me, I don't normally miss people. My Chicky has always been quite flexible, but I don't think she wants to be an Olympic Gymnast !!! Take care, Meow
