This week I am grateful for......
On Thursday I dropped my kiddies off early at my sisters and drove an hour and a half to Ballarat. My reason for the drive was for a long overdue catch up with a lovely friend. We both started teaching art the same year in country Victoria many years ago. Now, after marriage, mortgages and children, catching up is not so easy. She is mid way through her pregnancy and I am so excited that she has baby number 3 on the way.
Our day consisted of coffee, lunch and our true passion..........op shopping. This woman has style and can spot a treasure a mile away and she knows where to go to pick up a bargain. As always I received a HUGE bag of vintage clothes from her, Wow!
I just love those special friends that although you may not see each other often, when you do its back to where you left off.....very special indeed!
Driving by myself
- no toilet stops
- no fighting
- no asking when we will be there
- no packing of snacks, drinks, extra clothes and activities to keep little ones busy
- no answering questions, reading road signs aloud, refereeing arguments and generally no talking....
- listening to my music and singing as loud as I wanted!
For more take a look over at And then there were four.
