Just letting you know!

Yes it is on again!
Each year the woman of our family youngest to oldest gather together and have a great time visiting with each other over a few days.
So this weekend it is on again. We have hired a seaside home (even if it is winter) and we are going to learn how to make a sponge cake and other great idears.
I am going to travel over on Thursday to meet up with most of the other woman of our family so I will be away for a few days but will bring back some great photos and stories to share.

This is one of those events a few years ago.
The funny thing is the men all have to stay home while we all get together. I am not sure if the men are happy but it is great for us girls.
In the past we have had gatherings that spanned over 5 generations and the great memories we make on these trips are wonderful and for forever.
So I fly out tomorrow and will be back Sunday night so will visit you all next week my dear blogger friends.
This is my Wednesday - filled with anticipation

Fabulous idea, the world would be a better place if more people did this kind of thing.

Hope you had plenty of rain up there, Lee-Ann. There was a good old fashioned downpour in Melbourne today.

Lucky you to have so many women in your family! And to get away like that for some fun - fabulous idea! Have a great time and I look forward to photos.

Rowan said...

This sounds like a great way to spend some time, it's nice to hear of a family that still makes the effort to meet up like this, so many families now hardly see each other apart fom weddings and funerals. Hope you have a wonderful time.

Hi there's some lovely photos on this blog. I love that nowadays people share their family albums etc... why not?!?
Came here via Merle's Aussie List ...
I've loads of family Down Under and yet I hardly ever seemed to meet bloggers from Australia... no idea why. It's not like Aussies are thin on the ground, is it?
This is a lovely site, I'm glad I came.
I'm at
if you want to drop by any time you're most welcome.
See you later maybe ...
All the best

Have a wonderful time..... I am also looking forward to the photos! By the way, your anniversary post was absolutely beautiful. Sorry I am a little late catching up. Congratulations, belatedly!

AnnieElf said...

Oh Lee-Ann, I would give anything in the world to do something like that. But small families don't themselves to such gatherings. I'm with you in the spirit of the idea though.

Puss-in-Boots said...

You have a wonderful time with your female relatives. What a wonderful idea. Are we going to get photos?


It's a FLIP-FLOP World said...
