home again.........

Home from the "big smoke"......"bit like a fish out of water there"........had lots of fun..........caught up with friends and family, made new friends (the girls in my training) one of those was a quilting girl so we went to Quiltsmith.......had to find the directions for the taxi driver - scary..........when we got there they had 20% off - bonus..........so I got a little more.........check them out they have the sale on until the 30th August and it is online tooo............so many varieties of fabrics to look at......

Went to Billy Elliott the stage show - wonderful.............ate so much food it wasn't funny..........including Japanese for the first time...............went shopping in the city.........

Had a sleepover at Flutterby Angel's and a couple of drinks and some more food..........caught up with another non bloggy friend.......

BUT the whole time I was away the kids were pretty sick so I felt a bit guilty leaving them behind but the MIL looked after them well............they were very pleased to see when I got home and it was nice to see them and know they are getting better very slowly.........no school this week...............I got them some extra treats since they have been so sick while I was away.........

.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........
