Before it turned bad I did get to see some animals and get inspiration for new toys. Unfortunately I didn't get to see some Australian animals - the quokkas and numbats weren't being too coperative, but I did see some wombats, penguins, giraffes, elephants and more before it went bad. I've included the nice photos of the girls at the start of the day.
We did get to spend some time with Chris' family while the girls were really pleasant and the girls has a great time. Chris' Mum has been doing some cleaning and sorting and I got to take home some gorgeous old Carlton Ware and some other gorgeous stuff which is really pretty. I really love to have gorgeous stuff like this around will connect the girls in some way to their grandparents and great-grandparents. One of my favourite pieces I have is a small cup and saucer than my great-grandmother received in her Christmas stocking when she was about 10.
Now I think it is time to face the piles of washing and find some floor space in our house.
