Dylans Birthday & From this to That......

I have just realised how slack I have been with my posting lately not that anything overly exciting has been happening anyway! We had Dylan's 8th birthday party last Saturday morning down at the Jetty Foreshores & was so pleased it turned out to be a beautiful day. He & 5 mates had a great time although I felt pretty worn out after it all. Couldn't get over how warm the sea was, was like being in a bath!

Dylan is wearing the stripped T-shirt!

Well last night we had a *Going Away* dinner for Ryno & Chloe, Chloe's Mum & Dad came round & it turned out to be a really good night. The photo below is of a parting *little* job asked me to do for him! He is having his road bike shipped over to Perth (don't even want to comment on that idea) & needed a cover made up for his Navman so he can put it on the bike! Talk about short notice! So I have spent today making this cover up for him, not the easiest of materials to sew especially the clear plastic stuff.
So this is the finished cover, am not happy with it, I feel the sewing is way to rough but he tells me it will do the job, fine so long as he does not show it to anyone! I have to admit though that there was NO cursing involved while making this up, had to undo it a couple of times & my reaction: *Oh dear* not the usual @#*% when that happens. I did find out that any pin holes do not come out & of course there are 2 each side right on the front!

They leave Coffs tomorrow at 4.30, fly to Sydney & then on to Perth arriving 11.30 WA time which I am told is 2.30am NSW time! Going to be a long day for them.
I am not looking forward to it, yes I know I have to *let him go* but that is easier said than done! Must remind Chris (Chloe's Mum) to bring plenty of tissues)
Have a great weekend.......

Been there..done that! I have an idea of how your feeling today. (My daughter is married and living in the USA). One thing that comforts me is..... I was the one that inspired their confidence to go forth and conquer. We can be proud of ourselves for a job well done Lyn.
