A month of catch up!!!
Honestly where does the time go???? I say that every time i post and realise a month has gone by and i havnt had a spare minute to look at blogs!So much has happened in the last month,let me fill you in on all my news!
My son left for Germany last week,he is spending 5 months over there,half on school exchange and then off to Copenhagen to spend some time with his father and grandparents and little brothers and sisters!He is off to Paris in 3 weeks with school and then Skiing with his grandparents in Sweden and Italy.I am very very tempted to hop on a plane and go meet him!......very very tempted.......
And because he was leaving early,i did all my christmas shopping in November and have finished! Yes,thats right,all done!!!And boy do i feel good!And christmas decorations and tree up as well,i wanted him to see it before he left,so did it 2 weeks ago!I dont think he gave a shit !!! teenage boys hey!
Been doing a lot of work in the garden,we had 3 very very big trees chopped down,still moving bits of trunk away and chopping firewood!No more needed for the next 10 years!And i have some sun finally so can get my vegie patch growing and some roses! I have so many big trees that my garden is rather shady in summer,which is nice,but downside,its hard to grow my favourite plants!!
Working on the inside of the house as well,we are getting the stumps done,reroofed and a new kitchen,so its all madness!
As well as getting organised for the bushfire season,in between the flooding we have had 3 times in the last month,torrrential downpours,all coming in through my ceiling in my back room like niagara falls.I have been up here in the Hills for 5 years now and just love it,except for the weather extremes! I cant believe it was 5 years ago this week we have moved here,made so many wonderful friends,the people are so lovely,with the exception of the odd headcase or two!!!But you get them everywhere,not worth worrying about!
We are off to Sydney in 2 weeks for christmas and New year,spending time with my cousin and his partner!Looking forward to New years eve on Sydney Harbour,they are very lucky to have a water front house with bridge views! Cant wait!!!!
Anyway,have been busy sewing and creating,have made some lovely christmas hampers which i have just listed on ebay and some new pandora beads!!! Great for gifts!!
Here are some recent pics!Have also been getting back into my painting which i have neglected over the last few years,but have had quite a few commissioned pieces,so its a joy to get the brushes out again,my new years resolution is to spend more time painting!
have a great week girls!Will try and catch up on some blogs!
