Hi There !!

Just a little post from me, to let you know that I AM still alive !!! Life continues to be busy, but very enjoyable.

I spent a weekend recently at Phillip Island, on a scrapbooking retreat. It was great fun, got lots of pages finished in the album I am working on, and enjoyed the company of around 90 other women who were doing the very same thing. I plan on going again next year. It was actually quite strange ... I had never been away for a weekend before, without my Hubby and Chicky. They were left at home, alone with each other, to fend for themselves. It seems they coped OK !!!

I am still working 2 or 3 days a week. Still enjoying it ... at least I enjoy the company of my fellow workmates (the work is a bit boring, but you can't have everything, can you !?!?)

I usually spend Thursdays with my Mum ... we go shopping, have lunch, and do mum & daughter stuff. It is lovely, and we get along so well. Dad (who is retired) usually takes this opportunity to go and have a game of golf with a mate !!

Ummm ... what else ??? Bambi is well, still a naughty kitty (but then, what kitty isn't naughty !!). Chicky is enjoying Year 8 at school . She is quite popular, with both the boys and girls, and forever has parties to go to and friends visiting, or her visiting friends. It's great to see. She is still playing netball (they won their grand final recently), and dancing. The concert this year should be a good one. Hubby is well, also. Still doing the shit work, and fiddling around with his four wheel drive. He is obsessed with that car !!! But I love him dearly.

So, that's about it for me. Best get myself ready for work this morning. Should be a busy day.

Hope to drop by and visit your blogs soon.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Until next time ...

Take care,

Dear Connie ~~ Glad to see an update from you and learn that all is well with your world. Glad you enjoyed the scrap-booking trip and I am sure Chicky and your hubby were quite OK
for a short time without you.
It is so nice that you spend most Thursdays with your Mum and I guess your Dad likes the chance to play golf. Glad that Chicky won her grand final at netball. Take great care, dear Connie, Love, Merle.

Hi Connie...just thought about you ...and Melinda...
How have you been? I see you haven't been blogging very regularly either..I've done better over the summer but I don't usually! Glad to see that all is well with you...
I've been wondering about Melinda...do you know how she is doing? I tried to go to her blog but it was unavailable...don't know if she deleted it or what...? Hope she's doing okay.
well take care...will be back to do some reading...

Struth Connie - I just looked at the dates and noticed you hadn't posted on your blog for TWO MONTHS! So I'm pleased to hear all is well in your world. I'm enjoying your emails, but it's about time we got together again in person, isn't it?? Would you like to 'do lunch' in Eltham? My work hours are greatly reduced, so I'm free around lunch time most days. Let me know.
