I have loads to do at the moment but I have spent the afternoon make scrunchies with my niece, she is off on her Netball teams end of season trip. As is everything with my niece it is always last minute we made 20. They are off on a house boat for 3 nights it did sound like fun however I think I would like it more with about 18 less girls.

Congratulations to Batiklover!

I love the Port Leanne. It's chock full of history. Way back when, my family lived down there in what is part of the industrial area today. Fantastic pictures. Especially that swan!

Lol! 18 less girls! Love the photos of the Port - it looks excellent! Yeah, I don't get that new bridge at all. I guess you'll never forget Mike now though! Maybe that's what it was all about.
