Hello ...

G'day Mates !!

It's me, your long lost, forever absent, Aussie blogger ... Meow !!

Everytime I post, I apologise for being absent, for not blogging more often, promising to become a regular blogger again. Guess what, nothing's changed yet !! Be assured, though, that I haven't stopped blogging ... I'm still here, if somewhat AWOL !!

Updating from my previous post ... Chicky has recovered from her fractured ankle. She is back to normal, playing netball, dancing, and everything else. No lingering limp or anything. She was very fortunate that it was such a minor fracture. She has also recovered from her tonsilitis ... thank goodness ... and managed NOT to share it with either me or her dad !! She is currently going through mid year exams at school ... a first for her, as last year (year 7) they didn't do formal exams. She doesn't like the exams (I don't think anyone does), and the formality of it (they are all set up in the school gym) is a bit scary !!! I think she'll do OK, though ... at least I hope so !!!

We went up to Bonnie Doon last weekend ... did a bit of four wheel driving up in the High Country. It was very cold up there ... but no snow. There was a bit of frost, and many puddles were iced over ... not something I have seen very often here in Australia !! It does snow in the High Country (the mountains we were on are also our ski slopes), but only in Winter. It doesn't snow down here in the suburbs of Melbourne where I live ... and I've gotta say, thank goodness for that !!!

I have been continuing with my scrapbooking ... I hope to take some photographs of my favorite pages soon, to share them with you ...

Work continues to keep me busy ... 3 days a week ... with life taking over the other 4 days !!!

May has been a busy month ... my Dad had his birthday, Hubby also had a birthday, and Mother's Day. We also went to a 40th party a couple of weeks ago ... a "slutty & sleazy" theme. I generally don't go in for dress up parties, but this one was fun !! I made up some t-shirts for hubby and me to wear ... a bit of a cop-out, but it was a cold night, the party was in a garage, and I'm to old to be dressing slutty !!

Anyway, that's just a little bit about what I have been up to.

Suffice to say, I miss you all, and wish I could be here with you more often. I miss reading all your blogs ... I do try to catch up here and there via Google Reader.

So, until I get a chance to sit down here and visit again (sooner, rather than later), be good, stay safe, and have fun !!

Take care, big hugs to you all ...
