In my creative space this week I have a couple of cards to show you. These were made for two of my friends who are mum's from school, Mel and Nicole. As their birthdays fall only two weeks apart we went out for a combined birthday lunch yesterday. I had such an indulgent day.
Let me tell you about it. It started at 6am when I heard Jayden (8) banging around in the kitchen making his breakfast. At 6.30am he came in to our bedroom and said "Hi Mum, I've had breakfast, brushed my teeth, got dressed and I'm ready to go." What the?!! Where was he ready to go? School camp, that's where! His first ever camp. He somehow managed to fill in the next 2 hours until it was time to actually go up to the school :) Of course I snapped a couple of pics before we left.
He is such a happy, confident kid so there was no separation anxiety (from either of us) when it was time to get on the bus and head off. The excitement from the kids was palpable! I stood to wave him goodbye and he held up a quickly scribbled note saying "I love you" (awww!) and happily blew kisses and waved goodbye. He's away for two nights (one down, one to go) and I'm sure he's having a blast.
Anyway, got home from school drop-off and received a text from my dear friend Joyles asking me to meet her for a cuppa. We talked and talked and talked. I always feel energized after a chat with Joyles. She's on my wavelength when it comes to health (and lots of other things too), and I find it really helpful to swap ideas and inspiration with her. After a long, chatty, delicious brunch at Redgum Gallery and Cafe, it was time to whiz home and head out again for the birthday lunch (mentioned above). By the time my 3 lovely friends and I had wined and dined there for a couple hours it was time to pick up Corey from school.
A HUGE day for me - as you may know I usually carefully plan my activities so I don't "overdo" it healthwise - but it was wonderful. Was I exhausted and in pain that evening? Yep. But was I still happy and glad for a day of indulgence with good friends? You bet! I don't do it very often, which makes it even more special.
