This afternoon we will drive to Quirindi where we stay in a motel tonight and meet baby Emily (my great-niece) tomorrow morning -- and wish my niece a happy day for her first Mothers' Day.

After that we will travel to the small town of Bingara to stay with my mum. We will take her to lunch on Sunday then make the long trek home again -- all in all over 1,100 kilometres (688 miles)!
I have knitting and a hand-stitching project so I'll be okay. Most of the journey (both ways) will be in the dark anyway!
I'm also taking my iPad with me but mum doesn't have a wireless router and I can't very well spend hours on a desktop computer in another room while I'm visiting my mum, can I?
So, I'll be way behind in reading blogs... again. But I'll catch up with you next week.
In the meantime, Happy Mothers' Day to all you mums and grand-mums out there.
And, if you're a grandmother and you see your grandchildren this weekend, give them an extra big hug from me -- I miss mine so much!
