A bit of a catch up.

Well all the celebration and kerfuffle that comes with having a 50th Birthday is finally over. I had a wonderful week. Thanks to everyone who left Birthday wishes for me. What made this Birthday so amazing was not so much that I received so many gifts but that everyone put so much thought into them. Since my Birthday I have received more parcels in the mail, gorgeous patchwork fabric, more violet China and an apron with a Doily pocket with Violets embroidered on it and a yellow Rose bush and flower seeds for my garden all the way from South Australia. Another parcel contained a treasured piece that a friend decided to share with me, it holds many special memories of a friend we lost a couple of years ago. These four friends know me so well. The thing is none of us have ever met!!!!  Technology has enabled us to meet and sustain a friendship for a few years now but one day we will find a way to be in a room together.
The kitten is still here and I am letting him become part of the Family since no one has laid claim to him. The biggest hurdle is  of course the Man of the house but he is such a softie where animals are concerned I don't think it will be too much of a problem. I take it as a positive sign when I catch them napping together on the couch! The poor little thing still doesn't have a name, that will be next week. I have to go pick up Beau on the weekend, so if the kitten is still here after a few days with Ross I know I can name it.
Sunday we toddled off to the Post Office at 7am, it's the start of the kid's walk!! I can tell you that Beau and Flynn weren't too enthusiastic getting up so early and Beau was wondering what the hell he'd got himself into.
A few friends and family turned up to wave goodbye and some walked the first 10km with them.
Ross and I headed up to where they were camping the first night......just to reassure ourselves he would be OK I think. They'd walked over 40km the first day, just as far the second. Yesterday they had done over 120 km all up, almost half way. Thankfully the weather has cleared up and there is no rain forecast.  Ross headed off this morning to spend some time with them today on the road. I will meet them at Lakes Entrance on the weekend when they get there.
Meanwhile I am enjoying the peace and quiet and a tidy house while Beau is away.
