Hi there from windy willows!! It's been windy all day, so no burning of my rubbish, including the poor dead goats - Marg - they died of natural causes- before i could get them in the freezer - we LOVE goat meat usually! And no chooks in the freezer either, too windy for that. Instead, we did some furniture moving and made a special bedroom for our little Cherub and that took most of the morning. It was fun, and we can hardly wait to see her face when she comes back. We took all three cherubs home yesterday afternoon. It was doomed from the start - now I can see why my little Cherub hasn't progressed with her encopresis. It is an effort for bio mum to even hand her a washer to clean herself up with.... or give her clean clothes. My heart was heavy as I drove away. When I heard from bio mum today, it was to text 'you can come get them anytime soon'.... 'T, is a pain in the b**' ... "I've just got her in a nappy, she won't go to the toilet for me" "i've told her she can get back tot he farm.." etc. I'd love to go get them now... but I won't. I did text her that I didn't have enough petrol till Wednesday (the agreed day) she says she has some moeny for me... Anyways, the rest of the day was lovely. We had a call from a friend, who is tutored by a great violinist in Paris, and he set up a lesson for my daughter. So, we drove 70km to Brisbane and she had an hour lesson with a virtuoso violinist from the Paris Conservatorium. Now, I think she plays well, BUT this teacher says she has great potential. She wants me to take her to Paris next year, for two weeks' lessons! Wow! I guess she plays well? We ordered pizza on the way home and had that in our cosy, warm house as DS kept the stove crackling. daughter is now tucked up.It's still windy, and so very cosy in bed. It didn't take long for her to fall to sleep, it's been a big week. tomorrow, being Sunday, we won't be doing any work. So, a little sewing, and reading is all that's on the list. Too tired to drive 3 1/2 hours to Gympie, we're planning on next weekend instead, when we'll visit our 'Bluebell Cottage' again, and do some more dreaming. Enjoy your 4th July celebrations, what do you all have planned?
