happy and sad

This past weekend I got to spend the weekend with this fantastic, hilarious and talented group of ladies.

This was my third year at the Savvy Delights Retreat in Tahmoor NSW. And as usual Sandra and Sar had done an awesome job organising a fantastic weekend of scrapping and laughs.

Lauren, Kellie and I flew out of Brisbane on Thursday morning and met up with Malinda and Leonie who had flown in from Melbourne an hour or so before us... And that is when the fun began.....*sigh*  Not 5 minutes into our trip and the Kia Carnival that I had hired decided to stop... right in the middle of Sydney traffic... in the middle lane of course!

I took this photo after about half an hour of sitting there.. it took that long to get through to road side assistance... If we didn't laugh I think I would have cried! After an hour we were off and going again... In a new car thank goodness! But all in all it was a fantastic weekend!

Until I go home.... 

Yesterday was a bloody horrible day.... We had to make the decision to put my beautiful 14 1/2 year old Cockerspaniel,  'Sandy' to sleep. Over the weekend she had gone down hill fast.  Craig made the girls promise that they wouldn't tell me what was going on because he knew it would break my heart being so far away from her. We didn't tell the girls until after school, they were devastated... as we were too...  We have buried her in our back paddock where she was most happiest with her nose to the ground sniffing around and chasing the birds. We have planted a Pink Bottle Brush Tree for her too, she used to love scratching herself on the ones near the house (and make some interesting noises too lol)

RIP my beautiful girl.. we will miss you always
