Nat and Buddy redy to open presents with Charlie very excited in the background
Charlie helping Clare to open gifts... I think Shane was crawling out of bed about now
Sammy looking awfully cute in his post party hat
AJ and Clare hamming it up
The highlight for me was having Vicki, John AND Mrs Hardcastle there
Having Heaps of fun
Some of the kitchen crew
OK finally an all in picture but not so good shot really
The engagement party was a hoot.. The hall great a bit fresh with the weather but hey who really cares. We shopped till we dropped on Saturday. Had a great time. We bought way too much food for the big night.
It was great to meet Clare and Shanes friends and Shanes family. All my children deserve a medal for the work they put in. All my children including the in law ones, I love you all..
My shots of the night are a little miserable really. None of the couple and none of Mick, and many others but hey it was a great night. I will upload more pictures shortly
Apparently they are distinguished by their tales. Each one is individual like our fingerprints..
This is a footprint!! Caused by a whale flicking its tail under water without breaking the surface
This one did a huge splash. very impressive

Today was whale watching went on the brand new boat spirit of hervey bay. Great boat. Very big. We were told it is very early in the season..which is funny as we have been seeing whales in Ballina for over 2 months but they come here on their way back. But we speeded out about 50 mins right near Fraser Island and saw whales so exciting... we loved it and now it is on my list of things to do again. Late Aug early Sept is the best time. " I'll be back"
We are off home tomorrow we have had a up and down week but all in all its been fun and we have enjpoyed ourselves

OK so Monday it was quite overcast but we managed to visit everywhere ..there is no shops. Ypu can not buy a pair of shoes ( I came with no joggers) or a jumper. We saw everything except the museum which isn't open Mon and Tues.. No sunset over the water as it was raining by then.
Monday night another night sitting on the very uncomfortablre but modern lounge getting VERY cold.
Did I mention we had a plunge pool. Yes well we did not hop in. A bit chilly..
Tuesday we went to the tavern for lunch back to 1770, called into the parks n wildlife (yes they knew Michael) wenr for a few walks..before it started to rain. We were told to expect 150 mls of rain over the next 3 days, We were si cold we checked out the Mantra at Agnes were going to move in ther on Wed but we decided to pack up and go to Hervey bay where we may at least be able to go whale watching.
So now ts cyclonic but there are shops to visit, restaurants, we have reverse cycle air con and a spa and a view of the harbour..nearly Heaven.
Will post photos when i get back.
Loved the weekend with ALL my family.

Kirsty I was devastated to read about Jackis daughter. Our prayers are with them all. What a horrific thing to happen to anyone
This week has been surreal as Alan has put his resignation in and then to see it come over the library mail and then see it being advertised I am guessing we are not sure about anything but I know that Alan needs to be happy and he sure as heck wasn't happy at Byron Library
My 5 favs for this ,week would have to be..
1 planning for a holiday. We are hoping to have a week away after Clares engagement party (and no not to Canberra. We want top be warm)
2 being alone at home as AJ is away
3. My winter pjs so warm and comfy
4 also naturally my reverse cycle airconditioniong so toasty and warm
5 going out for dinner which Al and I did this week great fun
So to my beautiful grandchildren just 1 week and 1 day till I see you. That is so exciting. We will have fun at Clares Party. What party food would you like Ginny to buy as a special platter for the 3 of you. If you tell Ginny I will have a platter JUST for you to enjoy...
I love you all

was very sad to get up and hear you were not well AGAIN!!!!
Gosh that is very bad. What terrible holidays. It is so sad that it is even raining here cause the sky must be sad too. here is some jokes for you to make you smile
Q: If there were ten cats in a boat and one jumped out, how many would be left?A: None were left! All the rest were copy cats!
Q: How do you stop fish from smelling?A: Cut their noses off.
Q: What key won’t open any door ? A turkey!
Where do snowmen go to dance?A snowball
Hope you liked these. I love you
Ginny (sorry couldn't help putting a bit of pink in ha ha ha ha)

I must have no life as i really struggle to find more favs...OK
1.Watching whales spout..love it and yes its whale season again
2.Reading comments from my grandchildren on my blog..It gives me a warm fuzzy.
3. Fridays..need I say more
4. Reading a great book...so relaxing
5. Watching Molly play with her toys and waiting for you to take her for a walk and seeing her understand the words "outside" "new toy" "hungry" "walk" "car" "wee" I think these are possibly Mollys 5 favs Oh and her favouritist thing is sitting on Als lap at night.
Thats it for this week. Getting a bit poor really I think I will have to go to monthlies...the mind boggles
