Then we had a couple of days romancing in Sydney, leaving the boys at home alone for the first time. They survived and the house is intact.
To finish it off, today I ran a 5km fun run with my son. It was my first fun run (not sure why they put those two words together), and we were running to support research into Parkinson's disease (which my Dad had). It was raining, and I thought I was going to die, but I did it in just over thirty minutes. Here we are looking completely glamorous afterwards.
And now I am spending the afternoon "cleaning up" in my sewing room! Wish me luck.
