I've been pretty busy since my last post.  Last weekend I was very surprised by a Surprise 50th Birthday party.  We went to a Moroccan restaurant in Sydney, friends and family all there waiting - it was so atmospheric ... we were showered in rose petals as we entered the restaurant, before being served up a Moroccan banquet by warm and attentive waiters.  It was such a lovely surprise and along with an overnight stay in Sydney, made for a perfect, whirlwind weekend.

This week I spent a lot of time in the studio playing with paint, and on Wednesday I went down to Sydney yet again to meet my sisters, niece and nephew who came with me to see my first ever public exhibit of my paintings!  What a feeling!!

We took the ferry down the Parramatta River out to Western Sydney where 16 of my paintings were on show.
Then when I got home, a package from the USA was waiting for me.  I won a giveaway on Olivia's blog Happyluau  Thank You so much Olivia!

  6. It was a real buzz to see all those paintings I know so well up "on stage" - a bit like seeing my nieces and nephews performing in a school play. I was as proud as Punch.
