Health update and my girls on holiday

I have been unwell and not been blogging myself lately, but have been keeping up each day with all the lovely blogs I follow. Its such a nice part of my day and I thank you all for sharing with me. I will be seeing the Professor on monday and may well be operated on during next week.

I wondered what I could blog about since I have been doing very little over the last while and I thought I might show you some pics of my daughter and granddaughter on their holiday in Queensland recently. They stayed on the Gold Coast and had a lovely time, they visited a theme park and I thought maybe some of my friends on here from other parts of the world might enjoy seeing a touristy place in Australia. (Yes I know.. I made that word up :) )

Savannah enjoying a play at the waters edge. We are known for our beautful 'white sand beaches', this pic also shows the highrise of this area, which is very popular with tourists.

The resort they stayed at had wonderful facilities. One of them this huge pool.

Then there was the day at the theme park.

The day just would not be complete without some playground fun!

I am not sure who was the tiredest at the end of it. What do you think?

So, then it was back home to Newcastle and back to school for Savannah. I included these next two pics to show the uniform that Savannah wears to school. In Australia all the children wear uniforms to school. Each school has a different uniform, signifying what school they attend. She sure looks cute, dont you think?

Sorry to hear that you've been not well, and I hope that you feel better soon!!! Your granddaughter is adorable, and it looks like Mom might have been just a little tired too. Very cute, I love your blog and your header photo is gorgeous!!! Thank you for sharing. Hope you have a wonderful Saturday.

You have a very lovely granddaughter with a pretty name too.

Marilyn, I'm sorry to hear you are not feeling well. You also mention surgery, sounds kind of serious. I hope everything is going to turn out in your favor. I'll pray for good health and a speedy recovery. Please keep us posted!!
