Were you wondering where I was again? 🙂 I keep telling you it was another busy week … and yet … it just continues to happen. Perhaps I just need to realise that is how my life is … the stage of life that I am in. With 5 kids (4 still at home – 3 uni/working + 1 at school) … 1 grandchild … boyfriends … wider family responsibilities … work requirements … church/school/friends … stamping, blogging & blurfing … it is to be expected! 😀 And … it is also to be expected that the stamping, blogging & blurfing might be at the bottom of the priority pile! I guess you will all know what I mean! We all battle with the priorites … don’t we! 😀 Any way … I just wanted to share a couple of family occasions from the last few days! …..
The first was the 1st anniversary of my dad’s passing on Saturday (June 2nd). Mum was keen to keep things low key … so all the girls (my sis & me & all our girls) took G’ma out for brunch at the Coffee Club. Isn’t it nice to indulge a little … and not feel guilty. 😉 We put some flowers on the gravesite … and then did some shopping! It was a nice morning and G’ma had a lovely time with all the girls. We really missed sharing this time with my other sis & her 2 gorgeous girls. Q’ld is just too far away sometimes, isn’t it!? 😦
Just wanted to add a quick but very appreciative thank you to Lynda, Gabbi & Lee-Anne for their sweet thoughts and cards. It was just so lovely of you girls … to remember!
The 2nd moment of the weekend was the engagement of Sheree & Murray! Saturday was a day of contrasts … sad memories & full excitement! Muz is keen to have a dollar for every time someone said … “finally”!!!!! Sheree is so happy and has a constant smile on her face … and has had some very excited year 1’s saying some really funny things to her! One even promised her his $50 he had saved up to help pay for the wedding! How cute!
So … now you can imagine it is going to be even more hectic in the Lowcock household! We have a wedding to organise … and Sheree & Muz are hoping that will happen for Dec 8th! (A few contingencies need to be organised before the date is definite!) I guess you will all know where I am if I disappear for days on end again! Well … it must be time for a card … so keep watching for a second post today … I will show you the lovely card I made for mother’s day for my mum! 🙂
