Holidays over - Work back in full swing.

Well Erica has been proved right (several times over) - sorry I am late with this posting and I promise to try and do better for the rest of 2010 - and yes I have eaten crow at Eric's table as well as saying she was right.

Well Christmas holidays are over - oh joy and we survied the holidays - wonderful and we will all be a year older this year - reality bites!!

On the other hand here is our amazing Harvey on dad's shoulders at our Australia Day Holiday week-end - we did have a lovely day.

Well here is the cover of CE No 26 - isn't it glorious - that is the good news, the bad well it is running late! Sorry everyone but anticipation is half the fun. The cover shot is really special and looks fabulous and there is just so much in this issue including Danielle's French Provincial bedroom setting and Kerrie's Recession Cake recipe you will just love it all.

Simon is still working on Harvey's Garden - not sure if I told you that I have written my first children's story - Sammie Snail Finds a Friend - this goes with the CD and the text is all digitised so it marries up with the block pages so an embroidered book can be made - something rather unique - we love it and hope you do too. Our little quilt is finished (as well) and just looks magic - sashed with embroidered rows of lady bugs - really cute. Will save a picture until next blog.

When Dreams Flower - book is printed with the DVD finally being sorted out so it is running pretty much on schedule and should be out in March - we will put it on our web site this week so you can order it and make sure you do not miss out.

Went to see Momma Mia a couple of weeks ago - we danced our legs off and then went to Wicked last night - both shows magnificent - loved my green cocktail and glass that had a stem light in it - yes I know I am still a child.

Robbie and I are working with our new products - which is fun and then photography at the end of the week - we are all now back into work full swing.

Three weeks holiday at Toowoon Bay

I cannot believe I have not up dated everyone for nearly a month! Shame on me - I know Erica you told me so!!
I have been away for three weeks, the longest break I think I have ever had - it was wonderful and now I am tanned and totally rested.
This beautiful photo is of Brittany who is my neighbour at Toowoon bay - I have known her since she was three and she is one of my best friends. We have a wonderful time together and she is the the only person who talks more than I do and asks more questions than me! I love her dearly.
Sam (my daughter see our Christmas Princesses photo) came up to the beach for four days and we had a special mother/daughter time and of course Britty, Lottie and Honey were included. The photo was taken on our day out - we went to the Crown Plaza resort for lunch on the beach - it was a magic day.
The water is 23 degrees and the weather is rather like 'the little girl with the curl - when it is good it is very very good and when it is bad it is horrid'. However the horrid part was video days, reading books, shopping and going out for meals so it was all good.
Simon had a great time with his family in Pukett and Robbie of course was up the coast with me in her van - we also went to see 'Sherlock Homes' and 'It's Complicated' both great movies. Since I have been home I have been out for dinner or lunch five days in a row, so am being very social and enjoying it - although it is back to work. As always when you have been away the work piles up, but we are ploughing through it.
I am off back up the coast on Thursday - is the end of the holidays and Australia Day week-end and the weather is tipped to be very hot - great swimming weather but next week the bubble bursts and normality sets in.
We are all working on new things so will promise to post more regular blogs in the up coming weeks.
Happy New Year to everyone - may it be all we dreamed it would and could be.
