A sad day here

Tony and I went off to the beach for the weekend sans children. Our first weekend off, just the two of us, in 6 weeks. Had an awesome time there. I love the Mount as it is called amongst the locals. We have a permanent site in one of the caravan parks and it is only and hour and fifteen to get there so we make the most of it once summer starts to show.

Unfortunately we came home to find our beloved cat Tiger had been hit by a car and was killed. I had to get the kids back from my ex's to tell them. What a rotten end to the weekend. They, of course, were devastated especially Hannah. She was ok today until little Miss Sarah pretended to be Tiger and pounce on Hannah! It was kind of funny but poor Hannah just lost it. I swear I don't know what I am going to do with that girl! She is mischief personified!!!

Well the girls cleaned up

It was the long awaited Pet Day today. Peeked out the window when I got up and it was raining hard. Great I thought...what a start to the day. However, by the time we got out to the school, the sun was poking its nose through the clouds and the rain held off until just after it finished.

There were three classes...Most obvious pet, leading and rearing. The children were divided by age so we had 4 groups. The winners and second place getters for each age group then all compete in the same ring for champion and reserve champion. Hannah got 2nd in both most obvious pet and leading and reserve champion for leading , and 1st and reserve champion in rearing and won the Senior Cup.
Sarah got 2nd in most obvious pet and leading and 1st in rearing. Both girls were competing against one another in the championship ring so a bit of sibling rivalry was going on. She then went on to share the Junior Cup with another boy.

So we have Group day next Wednesday which is where all the schools from the region come together and compete. Then it's all over and they can become lamb chops! Nah, just kidding.

See, I have managed to stitch...

albeit not a great deal. Here is a progress piccie on Coffee Menu.

Hopefully the two headless ladies will have heads by tomorrow. I am enjoying this design, but just wish I had more time to sit and stitch.
