Back to school.. and a lovely surprise!

Well today James, my youngest, starts highschool. So I thought I'd take some quick snaps of him with Lisa who is in year 12 now. Sort of brought back memories of his first day at kindy, I was a bit emotional as you know your last baby is growing up too now!
It was a bit hard trying to get a decent photo of them though....!





Finally a decent one of James



It feels a bit too quiet here now ... yay!! I think I'll make myself a cuppa and just enjoy the silence..

For a while now I have been on the look out for a full length mirror for my bedroom so when hubby turned up with this mirror out of the blue I was so surprised. Apparently one of his work mates' wife had this in her bathroom, but because her house is modern she gave it to me as she knows what my house is like. I only ever see her at Fred's work xmas parties, so how nice was that of her!  thanks Sue! I love it!



Ok better go and do something productive..... ! take care, Maryann
