A proud and busy time.....plus TIS

Things have been very busy of late but all enjoyable which is great.


Our daughter ... Heather was inducted into the QLD Police Service on friday 27th, we are so proud of her and wish her well in the future, she has worked so hard to achieve this as she broke her foot and required an operation ... metal plate and 5 screws ... so she was many weeks on crutches during the 7 month program as a recruit but its all been worth the effort and we couldn't be happier for her.... well done Heather, we love you. If you want to have a look at the ceremony the police have put it on Youtube which is terrific.



The Police Pipes and Drum band, they were terrific.


Heather and her daughters, June and Corinne.


Heather with the Police Commissioner Bob Atkinson.
A very proud moment for her.
  

Saturday we went to the opera to see Puccini's The Girl of The Golden West, we both enjoyed it very much.


Sunday I went to the movies with Corinne and Kenny to see Pirates Of The Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides .... Johnny Depp is such a spunk..... so it was a terrific few days.


Its taken me quite a while to do this post as we were having a very nasty storm fortunately it passed quickly,bn I popped out to take a piccie of the  front lawn  and as you can see lots of hail.


Oooooops nearly forgot to show you my TIS stitch-a-long blocks for May.

Missed the hail yesterday only lots of lightning and rumbling. It's pouring now though.
