On Thursday Elizabeth (DD No 1, aged 30) rang me and said "Guess what I just got?". Well, of course, my mind started racing, and when she said "I should have got it a long time ago", I twigged and said "your licence" - she finally got her driving licence. All the thanks should go to Matt who has shown great patience and been a wonderful teacher.
We wanted to buy her a magnum of champagne - I couldn't find any in the nearby bottle shops but I did find this:
with the sign already attached.
On Friday, Mum, Paula (a friend from work and recent patchwork convert) and I drove to Canberra to see the Masterpieces from Paris exhibition - "Starry Night" was the outstanding piece of the exhibition (for me).
While in Canberra had to pay a visit to Addicted to Fabric - beautiful shop and a fabulous range of fabrics. The "diet" went by the wayside for the day - bought a pattern and fabric to make myself a skirt.
Yesterday we went to Sydney to see Elizabeth, Matt, Michael and Peta - we went bowling (haven't bowled for over 12 years) and then had Mexican for dinner - lots of funs.
