Lots happening here!

 We enjoyed eating the huge sponge cake!

32 of us were able to come to the 80th birthday celebration. It was a fabulous time.
We missed Stuart, Cherie, Lois, Blake, Jonas and Ruby.

The last few weeks have been really busy here. We've had a wonderful weekend away with the extended family to celebrate mum's 80th Birthday. Deep sadness, disappointment and heart-break over the loss in pregnancy of a much anticipated baby, in our extended family. Richard falling and breaking his rib in a "social" basketball game. Lastly, from Seoul, the wonderful safe arrival of Stuart, Cherie and Lois. Cherie came into the country as a temporary ( soon to be permanent) Australian resident and Lois, as an Australian citizen! Lois will have dual citizenship. They are settling in well. It's only been a week! Lois is adorable and it's lovely to have both Stuart and Cherie here.

 Two of Rick's brothers, Andrew and John, were at the airport to greet them.

I have had two weeks in my new job as Enrichment teacher ( for the equivalent of three days a week). Richard has now resumed his six month contract... after being absent for holidays and injury! Life is busy! I am thankful to be well enough to manage this fast-paced life at the moment. Such a change from this time last year , for me!
