Random Post - its been a long week

Hello to anyone out there!

Well it has been a very long week, work has been insane - not overly busy, but lots of interuptions!  I am soooo glad it is Friday!

Tomorrow we are heading out to watch the last Crows AFL game for the season, not being AFL followers this should be very interesting.  In Queensland we were huge supporters of the North Queensland Cowboys, well of course we would be - their home, Dairy Farmers Stadium, is just down the road from our home.  They play in the National Rugby League competition, and being from NZ originally I don't mind watching a game or two of Rugby Union, but this Aussie Rules Football has got me stumped!  But we thought that we would have to experience a live game seeing as we now live in SA!  Wish us luck!

Sunday will also be a huge day for us - my wonderful cousin Raewyn and her equally groovey husband Ralph are visiting friends in Adelaide and we are stealing them for a day of sightseeing and Cellar Door Visiting in the very special Adelaide Hills region - it is sooooo spectacular at this time of the year - daffodils in the fields everywhere and blossum on all the fruit trees.  The weather is predicted to be a perfect winters day, so I am really looking forward to sharing our adopted home with them!  They are thinking about moving down this way in the future, which we hope is in the very near future, would be lovely to have family here!

Also Lillian is off on her first ever school camp!  She is so excited, has packed and re-packed her bag soooo many times!  We will miss her for two nights, but hope that she enjoys camp as much as I did at her age!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

RC Enduro - Team Kaos

My Darling Husband is very excited, this weekend is the SDMCC Knights Locksmith 6 Hour Team RC Nitro Endurance Race - what a mouthful!

Basically four guys take turns racing their cars  for a total of 6 hours, talk about brain strain!  The team must consist of two Buggey Drivers and two Truggy Drivers - DH is a Truggy Driver.
We are ever hopefull that the terrible weather we have been having down here in Adelaide holds off for the weekend and the event is a huge success!

We have spent the last few evenings designing and making these Team Shirts using a printable ink jet iron on transfer product (Officeworks have several different brands, we went with the cannon product)

I think they have turned out pretty good - don' t you love the name of the team!

So to the guys in Team Kaos - race hard and good luck!

I will have some pics from the weekend next week.

Have a great weekend where ever you may be, whatever you may be doing and whoever you may be with!


Just in case the words Truggy and RC Nitro are foreign to you, this is what a Nitro Truggy looks like;

Truggys all lined up for judging at the South Australian Titles 2009
Off and racing - these remote control cars reach speeds in excess of 40kmh
This is off road RC Nitro - so there are heaps of spectacular jumps, and crashes!

I am missing this ...

and this ...

and this ...

I can't wait for summer!  Especially with the weather we are having here in Adelaide at the moment - Max 14 today, overcast with showers later in the day - yep pretty much a standard winter's day.

Summer in Adelaide means camping at the beach, long lazy evenings at the park and bbqs nearly every night!  We noticed this morning that it was light outside before 7am - the first time it has been like this for several months - so Spring must be just around the corner and then comes Summer!

I have been toying with the idea of having a little Etsy store for a while - so stay tuned and I will be introducing you to Miss Lilly Ruffles really soon - it is just for little girls!

Can't wait to share more with you!
