Thanks everyone!

:D

I've just come back from a 4 day camping trip with my family to Echuca, on the Victoria / New South Wales border. It was a lot of fun, but also really hot! It makes you realise how much we come to rely on air conditioning nowadays! We had to find creative ways to keep cool such as going ten-pin bowling (where I bowled my second ever 200 game!) and to the movies where we watched an excellent movie about a bodhisattva named Astro Boy. We also spent a lot of time at the swimming pool because my son Bennett loves swimming pools! I managed not to get sunburnt, so am pleased about that.

Back to work tomorrow, for a 3 day week.
