Running…..and flying

Last Sunday Mal did the Melbourne Marathon again……and I did the 10km run! And anyone who knows me knows that I don’t run. In fact I hate running! But Mal ‘encouraged’ me to enter about 2 months ago and I did a little training and managed to get out there and enjoy it on the day. It was so beautiful running around our gorgeous city. Running past the shrine made me think of both my grandfathers and all they had to endure during WWII and that inspired me to keep going. (I will add a photo have a new laptop as my old one crashed….that’s ANOTHER story and I can’t seem to work out how to edit photos on my new one yet)

Anyway, last time Mal ran the marathon, or did the Marysville to Melbourne event he jumped straight on a plane to London that night…..this time at least he waited until the next day! But this time he’s working in London for about 4 months and so our exciting news is that we have decided the whole family will join him. So, the girls and I left this Sunday night. Haven’t decided yet but think we’ll do a separate blog with our travel adventures and just pop the crafty things on here. We’re in Dubai with Mal’s sister at the moment and having a ball. Today we fly on to London. The girls were fantastic on the plane, very excited and well behaved. Still it’s nice to know that two thirds of the flight is over and it’s only 7 hours on the plane today.

If anyone needs to contact me for Sewjourn you can TEXT me on my mobile or send me an email. We plan to be home for the start of the school next year. Hopefully a less crazy lifestyle over the next few months will mean more time for blogging…..and crafting!

Weekend available

Quite a few weeks ago one of the lovely groups that visit Sewjourn a few times a year emailed me to say they had to cancel coming along next weekend but there’s been so much happening here that I hadn’t gotten around to posting or doing anything about it.  SO, if you are keen on a weekend of relaxing, creating and enjoying  (and have the energy to get your group together in a week or so) then please email me asap. 

Dates available are: Friday 21st October until Sunday 23rd October.
