Retreats, Birthdays and Appendicitis on the Nullabor

This is a pic from our last retreat @ The Outlook Boonah. Which is where I am meant to be this weekend. So about far left of pic, I should have been sitting and working on a whole bunch of precious stuff that I've been looking forward to for months, including a birthday party last night. For me. Sue M and Co organised the whole thing - and here I am in Adelaide instead. I hope they had a marvellous time last evening.  Such is life and a small note to self about galavanting across the Nullabor Plain (as one is quite entitled to do) and succumbing to appendicitis. So here we all are in Adelaide (Mum, Little Sister, Little Niece and me) taking up residence near the Royal Adelaide Hospital and looking after the precious stuff.  Dad.  While he makes a slow but positive recovery from surgery, we're here. And that  is about the best birthday present a goddess could wish for .....

Hugs for you. A reminder of the precious things I'm thinking.
We did miss you at retreat, but left a place for you at dinner and toasted our absent friend.
