Going away for a few days..


Ok my lovelies. I and my little family are off on a mini-break
to a fantastic place called Shoal Bay 3 hours North of Sydney.


We're leaving tomorrow and will spend the rest of the week in
or on the water, including a dolphin cruise, a camel ride (yes!),
long beach walks and lots of quality time with the children.


The reason we are going is to celebrate my birthday on Thursday
and also Mother's Day on Sunday. Marshall & the kids have been
giggly and secretive all week, and can barely contain themselves.


I can't wait to see what they have in store but know I am going
to love what ever it is because they are the most wonderful little
trio a girl can possibly dream of, and I am so lucky to have them!


I hope all of you mothers out there have plans for Mother's Day
and that you will be celebrated with love & joy by your children.
Happy Mother's Day!


I'll see you when I get back on Sunday night and can't
wait to catch up on your lovely blogs, emails and news!
I'll miss you.

xx Charlotta
