I've been absent but I'm back

Some of you might have noticed I haven't been commenting on your blogs. You all know what has been happening in my life. Yes, like everyone, I have been busy.
My husband and I decided our daughter needed a fun holiday for her 30th birthday. She has been dealing with a lot. So we thought she would like a cruise. We planned it, booked it, paid for it and then things changed....
Our house went on the market, my husband had a stroke. Luckily he is recovering well. With all that I needed a holiday. Some people say I am selfish but you know what, maybe I am. Yes I needed a holiday. My husband was looked after and we have some good friends. My daughter and I need some time together too. So our holiday went ahead.
This was us over the past week enjoying a cruise to the South Pacific. Stopping at all stations.
NOUMEA, LIFOU NEW CALEDONIA & PORT VILA, VANUATO....
The town hall
My cultural part of the holiday...........
A GOOD START TO OUR HOLIDAY.
Kristys breakfast in beautiful sunny BRISBANE
Look at this yummy breakfast.
It was better than what was at the motel we stayed at but that's another story..
Enjoying a FLUFFY DUCK cocktail for Keryn
Kristy saying, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN .
We couldn't let the balloons go but we enjoyed them all week.
Acknowledging my son,  JOHN, what would be his 22nd birthday 
Just a little bit of fun we had.
NO WE DIDNT WIN ANYTHING 
We did relax a little.
Somewhere at sea.
Luckily we had a pedicure before we set off..


I am sure when I have settled and Kristy and I have shared photos there will be more.
NO SEWING HAPPENED. I WAS TO BUSY HAVING FUN....
