I Made It Back!

Alan and I have been so busy these past few weeks, so today I had him take some pics of me when I was crocheting outside under the patio.

I don't think I have told you that we have our 2 granddaughters and their friend staying with us. They have all  moved up here to Brisbane from Young in ciountry New South Wales, and they are staying with us until they find a home to rent, early next year.

They all arrived in the beginning of June, and the house, and our lives, have not been the same!! It is lovely to have them all here, and they have all found jobs already, so they are going very well!
 We even have an apprentice hairdresser with us!
Two of the girls are flying home over Christmas, so we will have our Sarah, the apprentice, with us for the Christmas period, as she has to work.

So life has been quite hectic around here!

Apart from that, I am finally onto the border of the blanket for Christmas. It has taken me forever, as other things have interfered. I will be so very glad to have it finished!

So here I am:-

So the border is well under way here, almost there!

I have had a number of visits to the Skin Cancer Clinic over the past few weeks, and have a number of BCC's removed from my forehead, so the scars still are healing.  Tomorrow will be my final visit, I hope.

There is a big storm heading over here, we have battened down the hatches, and are just waiting now for it to hit. The humidity here has been really high, our temperatures have been high 30's, so it's time we had a monster storm to clear the air again.

The garden doesn't know if its Summer or Autumn, or maybe Spring! Some planys are flowering, when they shouldn't be until late Autumn, so our weather is all higglety piggildy!!

Well that's it for now, I hope that your weather is being kind to you, and your Christmas is arranging itself properly!!

Take care

Lest We Forget

On the eleventh hour
Of the eleventh day
Of the eleventh month
We Shall Remember Them
