Just when you're feeling so sad something wonderful can come right out of the blue to make your heart happy again.
Last Monday was my first day back at work after the Christmas break and, after losing Ziggy, I was feeling pretty down. Received a text message from our dear friends telling us they were 6 hours away and would we like to go out for dinner on Tuesday night. After a few messages/phonecalls back and forth, plus a phonecall to my boss, I was on holidays after work on Monday and Diann (who shall remain blogless) and Bill arrived at our place on Monday night and stayed until Friday morning.
We've had such a lovely few days - drove up the mountain on Tuesday to visit Berrima and Mittagong followed by dinner at Wollongong Harbour. Wednesday we decided to take off to Bateman's Bay, visiting Gerringing and Nowra on the way. Spent the night in Bateman's Bay then drove to Moruya on Thursday morning to find Steph's Patchwork Shop (what a treasure-trove that place is!). I could happily make so many of the patterns/samples on display - they are all in colours and fabrics that I love. Drove home via Ulladulla, Berry, Kiama and Shellharbour. We've visited lots of patchwork shops (the boys found a few motor bike shops), had some great seafood but mostly enjoyed a wonderful time with our friends.
John has another week left of his holidays and I will go back to work on Monday - who knows what will happen next week.
