Much improved…I hate to think how old her old pillows were….

    So glad your mums operation went well. Tess went to Montessori from 2 1/2 to grade 1. Loved every thing about Montessori Unfortunately Tess needed routine and was not a self starter lol so had to take her out and the fact it was a hundred km round trip. I was really sad that Tess had to leave

    Hi Libby,
    So glad to hear your Mum is ok. That must have been a really worrying time for you all. She does have the most beautiful orchids doesn’t she. How fabulous Christy getting into a Montessori HS. I used to be the Director at a Montessori Pre- School at Castle Hill in Sydney so I know how great they are. Love Montessori principles. Isn’t it wonderful to see and hear the kids in the pool again. We had Rhianna’s friends over on the weekend and it was lovely hearing the squealing as they dived into the cold water for the first time.

    I’m glad our high school only allows one ear piercing. I have 3 holes in each ear and wish I had never had it done, as later on you outgrow it and it looks tacky, I still have the scars though 🙁 That orchid colour is gorgeous though! Glad your Mum is on the mend. Handy her living next-door for you to keep an eye on her.
