Can you believe that January is already behind us?  Wow.  I can't say that it has gone fast because it seems forever ago that we were celebrating Christmas and the New Year. 

We've been busy though and life has been pretty full for a lot of January which meant that the days continued to roll on with their usual regularity.  Then I woke up one morning and realised that it was February.

January consisted of quite a bit of family time as lovely hubby took a little time off work which was really nice.
We went out for a picnic but took the boat instead of the car. 

That meant that hubby could do some fishing once he dropped the kids and I off at the northern tip of Bribie Island (Caloundra end).  We walked across the tip to the beach on what was a really beautiful day for the first day of the year.  (Yes, this was WAY back on January 1st).

 The kids had a great time cooling off in the surf...

...and watching the ships head into the port of Brisbane. 
It certainly wasn't a bad way to start the year.

Little Miss R's best mate came to stay for a few days so we went swimming and a zoo trip and a few other things to keep them occupied. 
Master W moved away mid last year and this is only the second time they've caught up since then.  They were pretty excited (understatement :) )
We also celebrated a 10th birthday.  I can't believe I no longer have any children with a single digit age now.
There were more trips to the beach while Dad was home too.  This time late in the afternoon on a really hot summers day to cool off.

Then we just had to have fish and chips at the beach before heading home.

The kids and I had a couple of outings of our own, usually when we had appointments or needed to get school supplies.

We treated ourselves to Churros from here which were very much a hit.
(I can't seem to get the link to work today.  It was San Churro café at Sunshine Plaza shopping centre in Maroochydore)

It was lovely to spend some time with the kids doing something a bit different and having fun.
It wasn't all about food though.  There's also a new project on the go with colours picked by Little Miss R for her blanket she's been harassing me to make for more than 6 months!
(more on this another day)

 The biggest news came from the very end of January when a new school year started.  Little Miss R is no longer Little and will probably be referred to as Miss R now that she has started high school.
Yes my girl is now Grade 7 and off to high school.  Eeeek!

(She's loving it so far by the way)
Hoping you are all enjoying your start to 2018.
