My blogging absence has been due to ridiculously nice weather and lots of friends being home for some summer fun. I celebrated my birthday with backyard croquet, great for when it finally starts to cool off in the arvo.
I also spent a few days down in the gorgeous south of our state where I grew up, swimming at the beach, hugging cute animals, tasting expensive wines and getting lost on the way out of mazes with some great friends.
I start work again on Monday... I hope you have all been having some lovely summer holidays if it's that time of year for you, otherwise, I don't mean to gloat, sorry.
