Tootgarook here we come!

This is one of the pages I completed!

On the 21, 22 & 23 October a group of us headed off to Tootgarook for a scrapbooking weekend, the house we stay in is divine, it is set up high on a hill with much privacy. It has the most amazing bathroom, the shower has no screen, the spa is massive and if you need to go to the loo that too is very inviting, the window has no curtain and whatever you are doing you get a view of the bay!

This year my girlfriend Jackie came with me, along the way we stopped for a lovely meal and a glass of vino!

The weekend was a hoot, we have been getting together for a number of years now and everyone of us has the task of doing a meal and trust me we are so well fed. One of the best things about these weekends is that you get to do alot of scrapbooking, everything is left out and you don't have to pack up until you are ready to leave on late Sunday afternoon.

Here we are enjoying lunch on one of the balconies.

Gone but not forgotten!

24 years ago today we received the dreaded news that my beautiful mother was involved in a car accident, the day was 4th October 1987. We did not know what we were in for, our lives were changed forever by that one phone call. It still feels surreal and not a day goes by that the lovely Annie is not thought of by one of us. Each year I relive the days events from the 4th to the 8th October, the day of her funeral. How I wish I could turn the clock back and have my mum back. RIP to my beautiful, gentle, best mum in the whole wide world!
