February Highlights

February was not what you’d call a good month. I had a bad Fibrmyalgia flare for much of it and we attended Kevin’s Dad’s funeral. On the positive we got a motorhome and headed off on our first weekend adventure to the Blue Mountains.

Other events, included a new hair colour for Christy…

Finally getting the motorhome we’d always wanted (years earlier than we’d hoped)….

Taking Athena & Jo up to Sydney for a Nightvale show. As you can see they dressed up and the cast all signed a note for them after seeing the umbrella (which had been left in the cloak room).

I got to enjoy a nice solo evening in Sydney while I waited for them (luckily on one of the rare good days)…

Lawson & Robbie Williams Concert

IMG_3197.jpg

I had been lucky enough to get a ticket to see Robbie Williams as a birthday present from my Mum. By myself, which I don’t mind doing (though it is always better with a friend).

I had only just discovered Lawson about a month ago (via a Youtube interview) and was THRILLED when I found that had just arrived in Perth as the support act for Robbie Williams. To be honest as just as excited to see them perform, as I was to see Robbie. And they did not dissapoint. I sang along and took plenty of video and photos. And felt so sorry for all the people not yet inside to listen to them.

Then they announced you get their CD signed. Of course, I had buy one, even though I already had all their music. I got to chat with Andy (lead singer) who was surprised I already knew who they were before this concert. It was such a step out of my comfort zone to do this but the guys were so nice and friendly (in the few brief minutes I got to chat with them while they signed my CD.

As I was leaving I was telling Andy that I had been just as excited to see them perform as I was Robbie and he told me “don’t tell Robbie” :-).

I was on such a high after meeting them, but the night just kept on getting better. And Robbie was truly an awesome performer. Last time I’d seen him (about 10 years ago) we were SOOOO far from the stage.

He had Lawson back on stage to perform a few songs with him. And I loved how much support he gave to the band (here and on social media).

It was such a wonderful and special night. I slipped out during the last song and beat the rush back to and out of the carpark :-).

A Morning Walk

IMG_2644.jpg

Being Winter, I’m not walking at sunrise (which I do miss) but instead wait until about 9am when it was warmed up somewhat. I’m still not up to walking every day and some days I can only manage a shorter walk, but even when it’s difficult, I’m always glad I made the effort. And I always enjoy the views.

And in August the Wattle is in full bloom.

Walks in Wollongong

I had a bit of time before picking up Athena from school (for her half day) so I decided to take the dogs into town with me and go for a bit of a walk.

After exploring around the lighthouse we stopped to watch the surfers at Main Beach.

Our walk only lasted about 20min but it was nice to be reminded about this beautiful town that I live in.

The next day I took the opportunity to do the same, but starting my walk at North Beach.
