Caravan & Camping Show

Not much to report this week.  The weather has been a bit patchy with some days being really nice.  The cyclone affecting the north of the state is being felt here also.  We did our mole scanning on Monday and we both came up clean. We visited the school assembly on Wednesday and were honoured to see Kai receive his "Student Award of the Week Award".  Well done Kai we are so proud of you and it was great to be here to see you receive this award. I went along to the local sewing shop on Thursday to receive some lessons on the Babylock overlocker.  It is a fantastic machine and does a lot of different stitches.  It goes up to an 8 thread cover stitch.  Friday we were up early and went down to the Gold Coast to the Parklands Showground for the Caravan, Camping 4Wheel Drive and Fishing Show. (check out this link)
Lots of exhibits and boys toys though I have to confess I was the only one who bought anything. Nothing exciting just some silicone seals for food and some shammy cloths.  Bill was tempted to buy a remote control helicopter, he's had a longing for one of these ever since he spied one in a shop at home. Finances wouldn't allow it unfortunately maybe next time. We checked out a few of the motor homes on display, there weren't very many.  There was a new Winnebago that we liked so maybe we may downsize one day to one of these, we even called into Brisbane RV Centre on the way home for another look.

  We watched our youngest granddaughter play her first game of soccer on Friday night. The only girl in an all boy team. She has no fear and is right in the thick of it and she is a good fast runner also. It must be the result of having two brothers and playing soccer with them from an early age.  Keira also had a sleepover last night our first and it went well.  We watched Nemo in bed and she fell asleep soon after and didn't wake until 9 this morning. On Friday night I was woken by my eldest dear granddaughter with the news that she was engaged.  Her beau Chris had just proposed.  I don't mind being woken up for such good news.  Congratulations Jess and Chris I wish you all the happiness in the world. 

Next week the Craft Expo is on at the Convention Centre at South Bank for 4 days so I intend to go on Thursday. (check out this link I am looking forward to a "Crafty Fix" and to see what else is new out there.

Talk again soon
