wordful wednesday and the wild ride

so much has happened since this photo was taken

i finished up at my work

flew to sydney

climbed the sydney harbour bridge

had a fabulous girls' weekend in sydney

had a wonderful 'GLAM SALLIES' party to help tara celebrate turning 40

that's me in my $22 dress and mr scrappy in his $8.90 sports coat

after a whirlwind 5 days in australia we flew home

got the phone call that mr scrappy's mother had passed away

(she'd been ill for some time)

then i got sick


somehow i managed to get on the plane for the funeral

my MIL got a wonderful send-off and being around family (a very large one!) sure helped

that was last friday

and i've been out of the house only once since!

and it's the school holidays!

thankfully my girls are of an age where they can help me and i haven't had to sweat that their school holidays have been a total bust.

I hope you are way better now! And I just love that dress - you look fantastic.
