And we had a fantastic time it was great. We have 3 weeks to go and we are so excited.

2 more

My 2 latest layouts for the book of me My favourite animal and grandparents. There is a caravan park down the goldcoast at ashmore where they have these beautifull Macaws in big averies, you can have your photo taken with them on a weekday so one day i will go back and hold them. They would have to be the most beautiful Bird. I would love to have one as a pet.
The Life of Connie Burgess. My Dads mother. I didn't know my grandmother very well as she lived in England and only came out here once when i was young. So writing a book on her was very hard. I wrote a few things that i knew about her, so i went to my father with some questions who wasnt much help. So i contacted my Aunt Gill who is helping me out. So when i get all that information i can finish my book.

This time last year i was in England and the weather was stunning.
As i was walking thru Regents park with my Aunt Gill and her grand kids Alex and Owen I came across the beautiful flower.

My double layout is
A thousand miles away. I stayed with my 3rd cousin Michael for a week, he lives in Southport. With his daughter Sammy and son James.
We also visited my other 3rd cousin William and his wife Dianne and daughter Abbey.
I have only seen them twice 2007 and 2004. I am so glad of the internet that we can keep in touch.
Look forward to maybe one day them coming here.

And I also went to Wales to spend Easter with my cousin Emily and her husband Dan and 2 daughters Kani & Eria. Gill and Nick drove me there. This is in Em's back yard, Dan had just finished filling the swimming pool. Bit cold for me though.
