Ahhh Friday!

Ahhh Friday, yes I know it is Sunday but, well this post is about Friday.
Friday was the end of a huge week but a great week.
We had the mother and child program happening at Nova and had a Mum and her two children visiting. It was challenging but fun. I hope they enjoyed it, we did.

Friday was our last day with them and our farewell BBQ day. It was also a lovely sunny day in Cairns that reached a rather warm 28 degrees C. The sun had a fair bit of bite to it as well.
We had our BBQ in the usual spot, down near the wharf. It seemed to be a popular place with a cafe that had opened up down there serving food, coffee and ice-cream. What a great place to relax.
There were boats, seagulls, fish and crabs along with the people. It was nice to sit, relax, eat our yummy BBQ while chatting and while the children played.

Friday was also our coordinator's Birthday. We organised for the kids to make her a Birthday card and I bought along a surprise birthday cheese cake. She loved the birthday wishes and the fact that we tried to make the day a little special.
