Favourite things Friday


My kids at the Chinese Gardens in Darling Harbour in Sydney

I have been meaning to join in with Quilting in My Pajamas Favourite things Friday since she began, but never quite got there. Right now I am supposed to be moving to Melbourne (Never mind that the road to Melbourne is flooded as we speak and there is no way we could have driven there today) but I have been sick and have held up the moving process single handed. I have spent a week in bed with temperatures of 39C plus and am not back on my feet yet. So, moving is postponed a bit. (Next week?)

My favourite thing this week is family holidays. We have had so much fun! Once we move to Melbourne only one of those little children in the photo above will be living with us. Seems strange to be abandoning such little children! Of course, then I think that this photo was taken about 17 years ago and I feel O.L.D. We have travelled to Brisbane, Sydney, Alice Springs, and everywhere inbetween. Exciting adventures!

What a great picture!! Hope you're feeling better soon and can make the move. Also hope the flooding subsides.

Kris Im so sorry to hear you're sick. Must admit Ive been a bit under the weather this week too but obviously not as bad as you. Be kind to yourself, rug up, drink water do whatever you need to do to feel better.

Some of my favourite childhood memories are associated with family holidays. I think it's wonderful that you've created those memories for yourself and your kids.

The picture is a hoot! I bet the kids enjoyed dressing up.

Let us know when you're better and settled. Sounds like you may have a very busy week coming up!

that is an awesome photo! I hope you are feeling better soon. There is nothing worse than being a mom and being sick. There is all that guilt...oh, they feel sorry for you but deep down they are thinking...if she's breathing she can make me some breakfast!

Get better quick. What terrible timing!

What a great favourite...I loved holidays with my parents and ith my kids.
Hope you feel better soon. Make sure you are really healthy again before you put yourself under the stress of moving.
