Jenson Button winked at me today....

Sorry it's been a while but life has been very full lately. Jake turned 5 and parties ensued plus my nephews 21st and my birthday next weekend it's one party after the next! But today was something just as exciting but quite different.
Yes I like motor sport - in particular Formula1. Quite unusual for a girl I know but there are more of us card making chicks who like speed than you may think. My SU! team is testament to that!
So today I headed off to Bathurst with my brother to see Jensen Button and Craig Lowndes swap cars for a few  laps around the track.
It was pretty exciting to see a F1 car live for the first time and at the best track in Australia = very cool. There were plenty of people there so I was most impressed that I managed to get this


and not only that but a wink - yes it's true - (he was giving me a thumbs up at the same time as the wink but that sounds much less exciting) My hubby was most impressed that i managed to get his shirt signed by Button so didn't mind when I told him "we had quite an interlude"  :)

(Does anyone else know that movie quote?)

I also managed accidentally to get this fabulous shot of two fellas with Jenson.
Their camera didn't work which they were bummed about and I didn't realise I had this one until I was walking to the car so if by some completely random chance you know these fellows point them in my blogs direction.

It was a beautiful day and was so thankful that I was able to go thanks to my sister in law and friend who picked the boys up from school and Nan who looked after Josh while were at the track.
Now I'm really looking forward to Saturday when we go to Melbourne to see all 24 cars racing around the track. Ear plugs packed!
Back with Jakey's round up party and some cards soon!

You are one lucky girl Kirrily. I love Jenson Button and would have been a silly little school girl if I had that opportunity to meet him.Thanks for sharing your experience, it has made my day.

So very, very jealous Kirrily. How awesome. Bring on the weekend!!!

Oh and Kirrily you will definitely need the ear plugs. One F1 car is loud. All of them racing around the track are even louder and it hurts like hell if you don't have ear plugs!!!
