A change of plans

Due to some personal matters at home, I was unable to fly down to Brisbane today and meet up with the other Gum Tree Designers.
I know I have saddened the girls very much by cancelling at the 11th hour. They are extraordinary women, each one unique and beautiful of heart, each one a cherished friend. They will have an amazing four days together and forge closer bonds than ever before. I pray this is indeed 'the time of their lives'! :-)
My decision not to go was right for myself and my family, but there is a sorrow at not giving and receiving hugs between us all. 
On Saturday morning make sure you go to G J Walter Park in Cleveland, Brisbane if you can. The girls will be there waiting to meet you! :-)



  1. Jenny - I am so disappoint3ed for you and all of us picnicers. Hopefully this will become an annual event and you will make it next year.

  2. Hi Jenny, I am so sad that you cannot meet up with your friends but, I knowwith you family comes first. Keep smiling my lovely.
    Big Hugs Jillx

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
