Sorting Things Out


Firstly a big thankyou to those of you who have left comments on my posts - it seems something has changed with Blogger and where the comments used to come to my email and I could respond direct to you there, this is no longer happening for many blogs.  Please  know that I do appreciate all your lovely comments, for now I may have to begin responding on the comments section till I work it out a bit better............ And now onto the news update for this week!
It's been interesting working out where various pieces of furniture are going to "live" in our new home ...... We needed firstly to get hold of some wardrobes so our clothes could go somewhere as the old Queenslander Home didn't have any built in robes in the main bedroom ...... During the search I did find the perfect bookcase to fit into our "library/study" room 

And Pete surprised me when he suggested we could also get a glass cabinet to hold some special pieces as well as a new sideboard for the TV to go on .........  It just needs moving up a tad before I begin to put things into it

While I've been busy unpacking boxes, I also decided to join in with the virtual party held by Chooky and got a bit more of my knitting done - still have to pick up the band, but figured I would work on the first sleeve till I got to unpacking the other knitting needles I'm going to need ......
I also partied by getting some of my new crafting room set up and partially unpacked .... it's a work in progress as you can see ....








Pete has been out and picked out a new boat to enable us to go out safely on the bay ...... 

We had a look at a few places including taking a drive up to Bundaberg ...... loving seeing all the
sugar cane which is a major crop around this area.  I'm sure I'll have more to share on the area as we begin to get around and find things, but meantime ........






I'm looking forward to us being able to head over to Fraser Island to explore it at some stage in the future - given this is just week 2 in our new home we have quite a few things keeping us busy ......


Since we've decided we won't be getting any more chooks for quite some time (if ever), Pete has pulled down the chook yard and small chook house to arrange a place for the boat to easily fit down behind the carport.  We will also be getting some water tanks, so this helps give us alot more room.  Pete is also planning on building me a little shelter area for my gardening bits and bobs - so stay tuned ..... can't wait to see how it turns out!


Can I just confirm how much I'm loving our new home!  I'm also enjoying finding places for things
and getting to explore the local area bit by bit ........ yesterday we went to Howard to a market and we got to try some Mango Melon which I had never heard of before ...... it has more of a rockmelon taste to it, but smoother/creamier.  Very Yummy and even Pete who doesn't like mango enjoyed this melon ..... one came home with us and I plan on keeping some seeds in the hope of being able to grow some for ourselves!

Before I go and see to the roast, I just have to share this great photo that Pete posed for when we were in Bundaberg and came across this lolly warehouse ...... talk about a quick U Turn!!  I guess he has certainly found his sweet tooth the past few years lol ....... we came out with some yummy rocky road - original for Pete and Ginger for me as well as a couple of other little chocolates lol.  He said to take this photo to send to our daughter who also shares the love of lollies since she was just a little girl.     
Big Hugs to all,  Sharm

So nice to see you are getting settled in Sharm, and finding places for all of your little treasures. The knitting looks lovely and the melon sounds so delicious. How exciting to be able to explore your new area by boat, as well as on land. I had to laugh at finding the lolli-shop! My Mr. has a terrible sweet-tooth, too! Looks like you have plenty of room for a lovely garden, too. Sending hugs xo Karen
