we spent the Australia Day Long weekend on our friends houseboat.
as the weekend went on the water sports became more adventurous. Thursday was our first day, the boys had a tube, Hugo a ski and then they spent time canoeing and playing on the edge of the lake
today i think was one of the best days these holidays.
3 friends and their kids came over for a swim and lunch. we managed to spend some time catching up on a months worth of news while the children around us swam and played happily with each other.
its simple days like this that make it all worth while.
this weekend John and his colleagues (best mate) had a warehouse sale.
I'm not sure if i have explained but towards the end of the year John decided to let his new company go due to no real gains and growth after nearly 2 years of hard work. a close friend who has imported indoor furniture for years has decided to branch out into outdoor furniture. John and a really close friend Ian are going to run it. john is inspired, driven and focused and the last few months have been great, with 2 trips to China to order stock and him moving into a warehouse/office space out of home has been great. the business is going well and he is enjoying it.
this weekend they had their first warehouse sale. Mish (Ian's wife) and I and all the kids spent the weekend at the warehouse and it was fun. spending time with old friends, kids hanging out and selling furniture !!
