The travellers!

While SH was talking to his parents last weekend they mentioned they had the travelling bug again and were off on a trip. He was interested to which exotic location they were going now. None it seems! They were off on a road trip for a few days and to areas not more than a few hours from home!!! Not exactly what we had been expecting. They stayed with us last night, a good distraction after our harrowing day, and lovely to catch up on bits and pieces. They headed off this morning expecting to be away another few days but have phoned tonight to say they are home in Geelong safely, the rain was too miserable to be travelling in!!!!!!!

I had a lovely day today, I didn't have to work so that's always a good start. Mum came over for the day, we went out for lunch and browsed the shops, picking up a few bargains!! We then brought home some cakes for afternoon tea when the kids finished school. Mum brought us these roses in memory of Jess. A bit hard to see in the photo but a beautiful apricot color.

Sorry to hear about your loss! I know it is something we are going to have to face in the not too distant future.....! Sounds like you had a lovely day with your Mum and the roses were a nice thought...there are some beautiful roses around at the moment.
