Yes thats what I was asked to make for Taylor as she begins her journey towards her last term at school....you read right....50 Thank you cards!!!
As one of the school leaders she is busy coodinating the prsents and thank you gifts for teachers and staff for their graduation just around the corner....lots of wonderful inspirational people to thank and of course had to have the personal touch (that's my girl!!)
So ahead of time they are bundled and ready to go (just quietly glad I dont have to write thank you messages on all of them LOL)
I was thrilled to be asked to make them and now that each and every recipient will appreciate the 'personal touch'.....never underestimate the power of a thank you!!
Last weekend I was lucky enough to be whisked away for the weekend to celebrate a special wedding anniversary in style at Q Station in Manly. Yes we do live very close by..... but I dont need too many excuses to explore this wonderful part of the world we live in ...plus a weekend away AND drinks and dinner for two...I was there!
Such a perfect location, Sydney Harbour National park, surronded by lush bush in a harbour setting just minutes from Manly yet miles from anywhere.
After checking in to our comfy room we headed off to explore...loads of history everywhere you look this was once the Quarrantine Station used from 1830 to isolate people arriving to Australia suspected of having contagious diseases such as Spainish Influenza, Smallpox of the Bubonic Plague....
An afternoon of exploring can make one very thirsty LOL luckily the Boilerhouse Restaurant & Bar had some comfy seats in the sun for a "happy hour" drink before heading back to the room to get ready for dinner..
Dinner was AMAZING, the Boilerhouse did not disappoint and YES we did have dessert, after all we had been up and down theses stairs a few times that day so I reckon we deserved it!
A great spot to celebrate a special occassion or "just beacause"...it was our second time to the restaurant and we will be back for sure!
This is a mixed post of sorts...today is August 1st...time to celebrate a Birthday (if you are a horse)...well in the southern hemisphere anyway, it was introduced as a means of standardising horse-related events.
So I got busy finding some fabulous finds, all horse related of course...
Most schools today in NSW begin their Trial HSC examinations....means nothing to most but if you have someone in your house sitting the Higher School Certificate (HSC) this year trust me it means EVERYTHING.....todays Monday Mantra is for YOU!
Hang in there, it will be but a distant memory in a few months and your 'real life' will begin!!!
Its been a while since I posted about GOOD LIFE WEDNESDAY...usually my day off mid week is spent frantically catching up, running errands or cooking and cleaning....but not this week...this week was about taking time to relax and enjoy!
I began the day with a leisurely stroll along my favourite beach with my favourite hubby...there is somethig extra special about a walk along a deserted beach in the middle of winter...love, love it!
The ocean pool has had a revamp and is looking smick, all ready for summer. The water was crystal clear no wonder the whales and dolphins have been popping in lately to say hello.
Hmm perhaps some human intervention here???
Never get tired of this scene....(yep that's Manly in the distance)...
I have been a bit slack in the blogging department for the past few weeks, there has been a lot happening here in our little world and I have hibernated into 'survival mode' LOL....BUT, I have begun scouring Pinterest for ideas for a few celebrations we have coming up....now I can't give too much away but....my discoveries are indeed FABULOUS FINDS and it is FRIDAY...so here you go!
Yep you guessit it I have a slight obsession with BURLAP at the moment....hmmm my creative juices are overflowing...
