Catch up

Well I’ve had a break of a few months from writing here, so easy to get sidetracked with life really, and so many lovely things happening….

I went on a wonderful 7,000km road trip with some great girlfriends up to Australia’s Red Centre and back – camping and backpacker lodges mostly.

Fantastic trip, but no matter how beautiful the country is up there, and so different from where I live, it’s always nice to return home. Even though home over the past few weeks has been quite cold! We are well and truly in Winter.

Pleased to say that the house and cottage are lovely and warm though, split system heating to all the rooms, plus a gas fire in the lounge to stand in front of when I come in from the cold.

The exciting news that’s keeping me busy is that my eldest son has decided to have his wedding at Marita’s Place! So much gardening needing to be undertaken to have it looking at its best for October!

New flooring has been purchased for the cottage, now I just need to get it laid at a time between visitors, and then I’ll post some photos. 🙂
