A very busy couple of weeks have flown by since my last blog.
The most obvious and exciting thing that has passed has been the Commonwealth Games. A very exciting 11 days of competition all around. I thoroughly enjoyed watching Australia dominate, not only in the pool but in all other sports too.
We have been glued to the TV watching all the different sports and now I’m not too sure what I’ll watch on TV. I was fortunate enough to make it down to the Diving Finals on the 14th. I got to see the Womens 3m Springboard where Madison Keeney won a silver medal narrowly missing the gold by .5 a point and the Mens 10m Platform with a nail biting finish by Domonic Bedggood to win the Gold. An amazing performance by Australia all around and spectacular to watch. It definitely made me sad that I couldn’t be there to compete with them as it bought back so many memories.
I was fortunate to be involved also with the Queens Baton Relay. I got to run a leg of the relay on Sunday 1st April at Beenleigh. That was a very exciting experience and awe inspiring to hear the stories of the amazing members of our communities that also got to participate.
The School holidays have been and gone now too. We managed to get some vacation time and flew up to Cairns and then drove down to Innisfail to visit Brett’s family. We got to stay up there for a couple days, catching up with family and friends and having a great time. It was Robbie and Charlies first plane trip since they were both very young and they loved it and handled the travelling really well (thankfully – lol).
Also over the holidays we got to go to a Broncos home game and were very lucky to be invited on a tour through the new Broncos training facility. It is absolutely amazing and state of the art. They are very lucky. Robbie is back at school now and Charlie at Junior Kindy and they were both excited to start back and see their friends.
I know it is a little belated but i hope everyone had a very Happy Easter and got to spend time relaxing with friends and family and eating a little choccie 🙂
Well that’s it again for now
