This past 2 weeks has flown by and mainly because I have been part of a small group of wonderful parents pulling together a huge fundraiser to help our boys get to Australia to a rugby carnival in July. Of course organising started late last year, but on Saturday night all our hard work paid off. It was huge with about 400 people attending. We were supposed to have two Knights but due to ill health we only had one and that was a great bloke known as....Sir Colin Meads who is an All Black legend here in New Zealand and across the ditch in fact around the world. He is certainly a great entertainer and all round icon for the many generations to look up too. He spent some quality time with the boys before the formal part of the night started. We also had former All Black and a good friend Gordon Slater as MC for the night, he did a great job! We also had a few auctions which after walking the pavement and quite a few phone calls (thanks to Rolly,Mike, me and Julie) we made an incredible $12500.00-amazing effort!!!!! So not sure of the total amount made yet, that will be in about a weeks time but it is looking fantastic!!!
This weekend was also the opening of duck shooting season, so the boys and my dad headed out on Sunday morning-only 1 duck fell pray, I think the other dozen are still feeling pretty safe!
So now life can get back to normal and I can do some craft, which I have noticed that I have missed! I have the kindred heart stitches challenge to do, no ideas yet but have a few days to sort myself! Must admit feeling pretty flat and tired at the moment.
Well I hope your week is going well, will talk again soon, Michelle.
