Holiday and Ballerinas

I'm feeling a lot better now after coming down with a cold last week. Just on the tail end of it now. Back at work yesterday with no chance to take it easy, as we were busy the whole day. I survived though!

My holiday plans are coming along nicely. I got my passport today which is a great feeling knowing I can leave Australia and experience another part of the world. Our passports here last ten years, so I hope to do more overseas travelling in that time.

As well as a new passport I also decided to lash out and buy some new bathers. I went to a huge store the other weekend where they have a wide variety of bathers in our popular brand names. The pair I got are a Seafolly brand. I already have another pair to wear, so since I'll probably live in them while I'm away, having two to alternate will work out well. One will be drying while wearing the other.

I went to the travel agent on the weekend also to make my final payment for the trip. So everything's finally coming together. The Cook Islands is south of Hawaii and west of Tahiti and I've been reading on the net that September, when we're going, is supposed to be one of the better months to be there. Here's hoping! As long as there's some sun which we're not getting much of here at the moment. A very cold, windy day it was today. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

Now to my stitching progress. I picked up Little Ballerinas again tonight and started working on the curtains. I didn't get as much done as I only stitch for a couple of hours on weeknights, but I'm moving in the right direction. Still no mistakes!!!
