Very excited!!!!

Hello all, I'm so excited. My bags are packed and I fly out tomorrow for Canberra. Stampin' Up convention starts on Friday but I am going to do some sightseeing. I'll be back on Sunday but won't have any computer access until Tuesday. My computer is going in for an overhaul.

All my card swaps are done, 116 of them. Considering on Good Friday I didn't have any finished, I don't think I've done too badly. I decided on Saturday afternoon that I had done enough. Yesterday afternoon I spent ironing and deciding what clothes to take and packing it all. It's really really cold in Canberra, well, really really cold for me coming from North Queensland where we still have the air con on and are wearing summer clothes!!!!!! So I've packed all the warmest things I could find. lol

Anzac Day was on Saturday and in the morning, we had a yearly parade here in Koumala. The CWA ladies always do the morning tea after the march so we were quite busy. Our parade is always well attended and it's wonderful to see everyone marching.

Have a great week everyone and I'll be back, hopefully, next Tuesday with photos of my swaps and 'gasp' maybe a card!!
