I'm in Bright again....1st Term Holidays

I start this post with some wonderful news. Abbey has started her Return to Work.... On Sunday Abbey had a 3hr shift at The Wheatsheaf Hotel in Terang. Terang is a 20min drive from Cobden. Before Abbey had her accident she had worked only 3 weeks.I must thank Jill and Darren Cole the owners of the pub, they obviously have the confidence in undertaking her trial return to work. Well the 3hrs flew by apparently, she was able to do some waitress and ordering plus serving of meals. i know she was tired when I rang her last night to see how the day went. OMG we/I never thought this day would have been able to happen 12 months ago, it just shows her determination to do this.

I am in Bright again and wow the weather is just fabulous crisp mornings but a temp around 28deg expected for today. So far we have been to The Old Tobacco Sheds, Wandiligong Maze and Ben again was a bird this time soaring doing Tandem Paragliding...I think the kid is an adrenaline junkie loves the thrill. Today we are going to Beechworth Bakery and checking out the township and on the way home stopping at Milawa to maybe sample a few cheeses. DS1 and his GF are here with Ben and myself.

I just happened to vist the local quiltshop here in Bright and purchased a few goodies...hehe....

I will be relaxing here.........BRIGHT....
I think I need to retire to here

Cheers for now
