Huge Week

This year has started so fast and things just seem to be speeding up. There is a lot going on and there are so many things coming up. I think this is going to be a huge year for my family.
Last week my youngest son started his TAFE course. He's doing music and loving it - just what you want to hear. He's also finished his 100 hours driving this week and can finally go for his P plates. It feels like he's crammed a whole year in just one week.
On Monday we are picking my eldest son up from the airport after being overseas and away from home for 14 months. So excited and cannot wait to see him. Hopefully he will be home for the rest of this year. Well that's the plan at the moment.....
As well there is the retreat to Adelaide coming up, a BIG birthday soon, and even the possibility of a career change - no time to rest that's for sure!
My eyes are getting better every day and I've even managed up do some stitching. I'm thrilled to bits!!!
I'll leave you with what we are having for dessert tonight. I can't go past fresh raspberries!!!
Hope you are having a great weekend!
Teresa xx
