Hi everyone! Long time no see!!!!!! 😀
My mum is turning 70 at the end of July and my sister & her hubby who are both teachers … arrive today (during the Q’ld school hols) to help celebrate this milestone! We are having a family dinner on Monday … and I wanted to make a special card for my Mum. I think she will like this one … she LOVES lavendar/lilac & roses!

We were devastated to find when we arrived at school this morning that we have had another break in! Our school is a little isolated being a little out of town & surrounded by farm land. This is our second break in this week. On Monday we lost 13 computers … and this time they took the school server! That means all our school student records are gone!!! Big probs!!! It is going to take days to recover from this one … and of course our insurance company is going to hate us!!! Please pray that they will leave us alone … we are a “poor” little parent controlled Christian School that relies on the generosity of our parent volunteers & careful management of our finances to continue to function. So … our little community is feeling quite “flat” today … but I hope our fundraiser will be an opportunity to share some fun together!
I spent 5 1/2 hrs helping set up for the school auction this morning. I have worked out that this week I will have “worked” (without pay) as a volunteer at the school for various activities & excursions this week for a total of over 50 hours!!!! (Including the auction night tonight … where I am doing data entry). Phew!!! No wonder I haven’t been able to get here to say hi to all my friends!
I am home for a quick break before going back! So … no time now to do any more … but hopefully on Monday??? (Going to church tomorrow & then to Kiama to visit my sis & family who are down from Q’ld). So … still going going going!!! One day things WILL be a little quieter.
