Well mother nature decided to throw in a little wild weather just before I headed off to SA and so we spent Monday arvo and night mopping up instead of packing and doing my hair lol. The hail stones were something to see to believe!!!!
This was taken at around 4pm in the afternoon and the little white speaks you see is the hail bombarding us!! Yes the range rover now has dents in it and we have a few broken sky lights and a peppered patio but we were lucky compared to some!
Once the first front had passed Chionia was brave enough to venture outside and have a play in the "snow" hehe......
and the view up the street
Then it was time to get serious, pack my gear up (and to keep it all under 23kg - not a mean feat for a scrapper like me!) and fly my way over to SA for the Escape to Create retreat where I was teaching on the Saturday arvo..
and before we knew it it was time to do the meet and greet at the door.
I must say it was the best retreat I have ever been on - everyone made me feel so welcome and I felt right at home as if I had known most of you for years!! I got to catch up with some online buddies such as Ange, Michelle, Sandra and Tiff and Louise as well as meet a few owners of blogs I stalk (hi Tatum!) - Everything ran so smoothly - no little hiccups and no major stress attacks!!! Nothing was left unturned and I think you should all give yourself a pat on the back - I will be back next year - teaching or not!!!! My class went really well seeing I had to use a mike and the last time I used one was at my wedding back in 95!! The ladies embraced all things new and had fun with embossing, paint daubers, colour sprays, and adding texture to LO's...I even had some scrunching virgins who continued to scrunch after the class :) :) :)
Time to go and collect the girls and start packing for Easter so will leave you with a few photo's of the gorgeous chicks :)
Ready to go!!
Amanda's sewing class - hehe - all four machines going at once!
The gorgeous Michelle :)
Meredith had me in tears most of the weekend - especially her boner's and flaps class - I just couldn't follow up with such a witty fun class - but at least I got them dirty!!! ;)
All done and dusted -Val, Meredith, Sue, Amanda and Kathryn :) A job well done :) The food was absolutely delicious although I don't think I want to grate any more carrots for a little while rofl!!!
And before I knew it I was on the plane back to Adelaide to catch my remaining flight back home...I saw Amanda and the girls waving madly as we took off - thankyou for some wonderful memories and making so welcome in your home. Last but not least the project I was working on on the weekend ....just a sneak peak though :)
