It sure doesnt feel like its only  been a few days home and it doesnt take long to go back to plodding away like the holiday is just a distant memory!  I got off the plane and virtually straight into rehearsal at the theatre with performances that night and everyday since. But today is a day off  and I have to keep looking at photos to remind me we actually had been away!!

Here are a couple of my favourites- and will probably end up being scrapped!
Hannah fell in love with this little koala called 'Freddy'.  Poor me...I was really sick but who couldnt smile with such a wonderful little furry creature amongst us!!! It just settled right into Hannah's arms.

Again amongst the animals.  These kangaroos let her sit with them like she belong.

Its all about shoes.  And I love these ones!

Love the photos with the koala and kangaroo. It's so foreign to me... I thought kangaroo's were more violent then they look in the pic :)

And Wowzors are these great layouts! Love the crochet netting and that yellow pom-pom frame :o)
