Australia Day 2007
Well for all those that don't exactly know where Nundle is , it is only 45 minutes drive south east of Tamworth, which is known as the Country Music Captial. At this time of the year it comes alive with The Annual Country Music festival, I think the figures are something like over 800 live performances, talents quests, hundreds of Buskers in the streets, free concerts in the parks, you name it, it's happens in Tamworth during the festival. We ventured in there yesterday on a bus with lots of friends from around the area. First stop was the Long Yard Hotel, and that was as far as Geoffrey and I got. We spent the afternoon chatting to friends and listening to the free bands before making our way to the Goonoo Goonoo Room to watch the Bush Whackers, they have been around for years but they were still brilliant, we had such a great time, ears were ringing, hands aching from clapping and feet sore from taping along to their incredible beat. Before joining the rest of the group for the road trip home we had and enjoyable dinner with friends to top a great day out. It always feels good to be part of such a fantastic festival.
Sorry no photos, didn't feel like taking my camera.
I am planning on sewing this afternoon, working on another quilt for a shop sample so will post a photo when I get it finished.
Have a great weekend.
PS. I forgot to mention that Sebastian was awarded an Australian Day Medal at our local celebrations in Nundle, he was awarded the Sportmans Medal for his sporting acheivements over the last 3 years, he first received this award back on Australia Day 2004. Typical Mum but I am extremely proud of him (also extremely proud of Nicole) but thats what mothers are meant to be.
