Out and About

It's been a week of being out and about. Hubby and I took advantage of a Mother's Day gift and headed off to the movies early in the choice!
Which was....
Lovely film and we enjoyed the music and seeing landmarks in the Northern Territory that we had visited.
Other here and there's happened, that took time but not very interesting enough to share.
Today we hedged our bets with these moody clouds looking threatening....
And joined our family for fish and chips down at the Bay to celebrate Mr R.s birthday.
I made cupcakes and we sang happy birthday much to his embarrassment lol!
The kids loved it!
Lots of fun....photopbombers and playground action.
We also got a walk in out along the jetty....I do love the mosaics along the way.
This may seem not a terribly exciting place to some.....but to us it's our special, happy family place and we always love being together here. The weather held and we even had a few rays of we were blessed!
I have been stitching....working away on my Clamshells and trying to catch up on my Postcards....last one for April....just finished and the first one for May just started.
Tomorrow our Son is doing another bike ride for cancer research.
Which involves riding up and down Mt easy feat over 100kms. We would like to thank all of you who have once again supported his efforts to raise funds for this cause that he is so passionate about. Once again thanks to family and friends generosity he has exceeded the entrance donation level. So if you happen to be awake tomorrow morning at stupid o'clock please give him a thought and a prayer.
That's it from me. A nice hot cuppa (all I can fit in after lunch) awaits.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend folks.
 Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
