Missing in Action

Hi Blogging Beauties,

I have been missing in action for a few days...Lots has been happening.  We went to Coffs Harbour for a funeral and stayed a couple of nights it was good to catch up with family.  The morning we left for home Mum and I went for a walk along the beach and I took a few photos including the one above.  Then I had a lovely swim in the pool where we were staying.  It was so nice to be near the ocean.

Now in Tamworth, it is Country Music Festival.  We went and saw Kasey Chambers perform on Saturday night.  I bought her cd and got it autographed.  We lined up to get a photo with her like true fans!  The photo shows my cousins Monica and Brigid, then Kasey and then me. 

This morning I went and saw my brother perform.  My brother is a Bush Poet.  That means he gets up on stage and recites poetry about the Australian Bush.  He writes his own poems and they are always really funny.  He has a new cd and dvd out at the moment for sale.  I know I am probably biased but I do believe he is the best Bush Poet in Australia!!  One of his poems is called "The Rubics Cube" and while he says the poem he solves the rubics cube.  It is a very tricky poem due to having to solve the puzzle at the same time.  I took a photo of him on stage but the lights were shining in his face and so it didn't come out very well.  Sorry about that.

These are just a few shots of Peel St (main street in Tamworth) where all the action is happening with street performers etc.  Can you see the lady in the background in the pink shirt and black cowboy hat?  She was line dancing to the music (as you do!) everyone was really getting into the feel of the festival.

And lastly, before I go I wanted to share with you my Carmel Meringue pie I made yesterday for my Mum's B'day party last night.  It was my first ever one and I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

Thanks for reading my ramblings.  I will be back with a card tomorrow.
