So for those who might be visiting here for the first time, this post is a bit about me .... So grab yourself a cuppa, find a nice comfy spot and come visit with me for a bit...... The front verandah is a favourite spot of mine ....
This is Scruffy, my helper and family caretaker lol. You'll probably see him around from time to time as he usually isn't too far from me when I'm at home! He often sneeks into the photos ... like the one beside here.... see him near the door!
Firstly, I live in Australia, down in the north east section of Victoria these days - in a small country township (well, we have a pub, a café and a shop - and the Murray River which makes it popular for campers over summer). We/ I have moved an awful lot over the years, actually since I first arrived as a baby - perhaps I have gypsy blood, since I don't seem to mind moving, I actually find it exciting, like a new adventure about to unfold........ We have a small house on about a 1/3 acre with shedding and gardens, fruit trees and chooks .....
I tend to blog about things going on around our little home ,my crafts, and such since I have lots of friends and family who tend to visit here to keep track of what's going on lol Initially it started when we were moving from Townsville back to Victoria - we've been here almost 5 yrs and I can feel my feet getting that itch in them again .......... We are hoping that DH might be able to retire in the next couple of years, so we will have to have decided on our "forever" place once that happens! Our children are spread with son, DIL and grandies in Townsville; youngest and only daughter in Melbourne with her boyfriend/partner, and currently the eldest son back at home with us. I also work in one of the towns (about 40 mins or so drive) 7 days a fortnight.
Around here I tend to various activities in my spare time - gardening, sewing, knitting, crochet, soap making, preserving , reading and walking.
Since joining Ravelry 1 yr ago, I picked up the knitting needles again and have been busy with them ever since learning lots of new skills. I'm hoping to be able to give our winter wardrobe some nice additions that will be wearable, comfy and last until we've had enough of them!
Last year my wonderful DH turned the carport into a "little cabin" for me to use for my craft. I'd show you inside it, but it's a bit messy right now ...... in fact I have to admit my whole house needs a good declutter!! If I could just have a week off from work that could be devoted to decluttering and sorting out my house, that could be very, very useful ....... hmmm, I've just had another look - perhaps a month, since decluttering involves cleaning out cupboards and shelves, not just the piles and overflowing items........... I need more coffee!!!
And so, on that note, I think I'll finish off here ............ maybe go and sort out a few things so I can show you around next time..........
Have a great day, and hope to see you here again sometime
