16 September 2008

It has been a mammoth effort to organise everything before I go off to Art and Soul.

I won’t bother listing everything cos I would be here well after the plane left.

I am having a well needed break with my daughter before I get to Portland.

I am so excited to get there and meet so many bloggers and catch up with other bloggers along the way.

Michael’s in Italy with alot of my friends but we get to finally catch up soon.

Sorry I have not been keeping this blog up to date lately but I just have not stopped working and needed to complete 4 books before leaving plus many other projects – with many waiting for me to get back.

But for now I am going to enjoy the ride and all the experiences that go with travelling. Hopefully there won’t be too much of this...

Will keep you posted.

Bon Voyage Judy. Have a wonderful visit with your daughter and the rest of your trip as well. Ah back to Portland. How I wish I was going to be there too. Perhaps one day...we shall meet there.
I absolutely LOVE these photos. Seems to come from my childhood.
I could be that little girl sleeping on the pile of suitcases.
Like the image, the idea...

Oh Judy, I wish you were coming to Texas. But someday I have no doubt that we will meet. When the time is right. I will look forward to reading all about your classes.

Have a great trip Judy, you deserve a rest. Your little lady will have a ball. Good luck with the teaching, I know you'll be a great success.
Catch up when you get back, miss you.

You've been working like a woman possessed! Although I'll never understand WHY anyone would leave a country that sells an entire variety TimTams, LOL...Travel safe, have fun and go celebrate with your girlie!!
LA is going to be gorgeous!!

Can't wait to catch-up with you next year...saving my pennies!!

I don't know where you find the time to even have a blog! Enjoy your trip...wish I could be there too. oh and by the way I tried a Tim Tam Slam.......heaven! (There's a supermarket chain in South Africa that sells Tim Tams at a huge price but I had to try them.)
