I am back - with so much news to share.
Quick run down on the last two weeks,
Sebastian and the rest of his NSWCHS Rugby League team had a very successful tour of Queensland with a win against QLD in a test match played in Mackay during the first week 18 - 12, then going onto win the Australian Championships in Townsville last Saturday, also against QLD 20 - 18. Well done boys.
Geoffrey, Nicole and I enjoyed some wonderful relaxing time in Queensland, it was great to leave this very cold weather for a short time. We spent 3 brilliant sunny days on Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays, which is part of the Great Barrier Reef for all those over seas visitors. Swam, snorkled, ate, sunbaked and just relaxed. That was of course in between footy matches.
But the big news over the last few days was my very successful Christmas in July 2 day retreat.
What a blast, I had 3 guess tutors, Janelle Wind, Rosalie Quinlan and Natalie Ross, they were all brilliant and so much fun, thanks girls for a huge effort, both with the wonderful projects and your very talented teaching skills. There were 24 wonderful students who all had a fantastic time, it was great to meet up with old friends and make new ones. I know every one was so happy with their finished projects, well done to you all.
The room was filled with so much fun and laughter it was a joy to be part of it all.

I will just post one quick group photo tonight and will show so more later.

Thanks for dropping by
PS I have drawn the winners of my give away and will post them tomorrow - stayed tuned if you left a message about what you were up to for Black Friday

Hi Kerry. What a great weekend!! Loved all the projects, loved the tutors, loved having fun with so many great ladies. And loved all the delicious meals and yummy treats you made for us all. I had a really great and memorable weekend. It was great to get away for a couple of days and it really felt like Christmas on Saturday night. Thanks for all your hard work to make it all happen, and thanks for all the fun. Kathy
