That's what friends are for....

Well... this past week wasn't the best. I wont go into the nitty gritty coz it wont change is what it is and it's behind me now so there's a positive right

Anyways, the working week being over and done with, we enjoyed a long weekend this weekend and apart from working for most of it hubby and I managed to enjoy a couple of outings this weekend. It doesn't happen too often but I am happy to say that we went out (yes I said twice!.

The first was a trip up the coast on Saturday afternoon with my hubbys brother to watch the Australian Sidecar Championship. For those of you unaware of what sidecars are...they are dirtrack speedway bikes where there is a rider and a "swinger"...(no not that sort of swinger)...The swinger is a VERY brave individual who literally hangs off the side of the bike to help balance it whilst it travels at extremely high speeds around a oval dirt track....very exciting to watch let me tell you.

Well it turned out to be a great night, despite the wind and the freezing,  as my brother (remember the one who had the motrorbike accident in November last year) and his wife decided to meet us there as well. It was a very emotional moment for me as I watched him walk up to meet us. Although it was still with much diffuculty he was WALKING...what a great sight for someone who was basically told there was a good chance he would never do it again!. Although he will never get back to normal or actively enjoy the sports and other activities that he previously enjoyed he has a great positive attitude and refuses to let this get him down. He told me that he is back at baseball and although not playing is still actively involved but now as a first base coach for his team "the shoeless joes" good is that.

A great night was had by all, we caught up with some other good friends there also and had a good laugh when we stopped for Macca's on the way home....just great to catch up! A very late night/early morning but well worth it!

Our second outing was Sunday night, when we went to visit our best friends and had dinner and watched the footy grand final with them in their new house (bit of a sporty weekend wasnt it). Well their house is great and we are so very happy for them. The evening was spent with them like always....lots of laughs, good food and great company. We don't get together as often as we would like nowadays, as they are quite a busy couple as well, but I guess that makes you appreciate it all the more when you do get the chance to spend some time together.

Well.... thats my story for this week.....yucky week but time spent with family and good friends more than made up for it....As my post title says...thats what friends are for...for good times and bad times....hmmmm someone should write a song about

Okay well thats it for now....'til next time... Chris x
