I'm back!!!

Thanks Sarah for the (gentle) kick-in-the-pants to get back to the blog!!

The weekend away was fantastic! - Copious amounts of alcohol, lots of laughs and giggle-fits (especially when at 4 in the morning J fell over a chair in the dark) a touch of shopping, a brief stop for a movie (Music and Lyrics) and very little sleep!!! Between us all (61 in total) I think we did a fair effort to boost the local economy.

I must say that of the males in Echuca (and many of them were from Melbourne too!) were quite impressed at the thought of a bus-load of women. Usually the convseration went a bit like this....

male: "so what brings you to Echuca this weekend"
Me & girlfirend: "we're on a girls weekend away with 61 women"
male: .... .........
Me & girlfirend:
male: "where's the rest?...."

Sometimes we'd let them in on the fact that our ages ranged from 20 - 86 and the majority were in the upper age bracket, but only sometimes....

Oh and Mum - just so you know, I was really good and didn't drink, went to bed early, got lots of sleep and didn't spend too much money!!
