Battle of the Bands
I had such an awesome experience playing the marimbas with my other bands members from "The Outsiders" at the Battle of the Bands competition in May. Along with Matt, Corey, Ruben, Nick and Graham, we battled it out against 5 other bands, to win the Best Band!!
We played 2 songs, "Don’t Give Up" and "Show Me the Way". We won $200 for Best Band, and Matt won $200 for best vocalist. The next performance of "The Outsiders" is on my birthday, 25 June at Nambour TAFE.
Michaela’s 21st Birthday Party
My friend Michaela celebrated her 21st birthday and my other friend
Mitch and I were honoured to give a speech at her family dinner. It was a great party at the Loose Goose at Twin Waters. We had good food and I made good choices and didn’t drink any alcohol. That’s a photo of me, Micky and Mitch at the party .
Adam & Sarah’s Engagement Party
It was exciting to be at the engagement party of my brother Adam and my future sister in law, Sarah in April. It was held at the Victoria Park Golf Complex in Brisbane. The highlight for me was being with my family and catching up with all of Adam’s mates. I wish Adam and Sarah a wonderful life together.
High Tea at Customs House
The day after the engagement party, I went to Customs House in the city for a girly High Tea. We had a very yummy time there with Mum, Kristina, Lydia, and Aunties Mary, Karen, Maggie, and Jules.
State of Origin – GO QUEENSLANDERS!!
I made mum watch the first State of Origin with me. And mum says this was a huge sacrifice (I don’t think she fancies football all that much…I think she must be adopted). I, on the other hand, love watching NSW get their bums kicked by Qld. Unfortunately that didn’t happen this time, but watch out Blues, the
Maroons have got the next game.
The Disneyland Dream
This will be a regular feature to help keep me motivated for my trip to
Disneyland. The savings are going well and thanks to my travel champions, Aunty Anne and Aunty Alison, they have given me a few more ideas for the trip. These include visits to Universal studios, seeing the sights of LA, Hollywood and the pier at Santa Monica, and the San Diego Zoo.
One Direction here we come
Yippee…thanks to Michaela’s mum, Michaela and I are going to see One Direction in February next year. I am so lucky.
A couple of weeks ago we went to Eumundi Markets with Aunty Mary and then last weekend Aunty Mary visited again to take me shopping for my early birthday present. I was thrilled to get a new dress, necklace, earrings and most of all my first pair of shoes with heels!! I got this all to wear at Kristina’s Hens Party which is coming up in August. I’m so excited. Thank you Aunty Mary!
Drama and Art Update
I’ve been having a ball in drama class and am enjoying being part of the SCCITR project. The Sunshine Troupe has been working with some new and different people and we are looking forward to a lot more fun. I had another painting session with Kristina. Also, Aunty Karen, who came to visit us on the long weekend, has commissioned me to do a painting of my Mum. Mmmmm this will be interesting!
Thanks everyone for your time and help
Love and Hugs
