Thanks for the good wishes everyone, they mean a lot. I'm very anxious at the moment, aa I'm sure you can imagine.
Today was Father's Day here in Australia. We didn't go up to my parent's because we were only up there a couple of days ago, and we took Dad's card and pressie then. I spoke to Dad on the phone this morning - they were supposed to be having lunch with my older brother and his family, but true to form SIL started messing everyone around so in the end they didn't go. I could go into a major rant about my SIL from hell at this point, but I'll spare you that!
We decided to go out for the afternoon instead of sitting around the house all day, so we drove down to Wollongong. The sun was shining and it was pleasantly warm, so we took the kids to the beach....(edited to re-upload the photos for those that couldn't see them or for whom they wouldn't enlarge)
