Roundup

It seems like January 2019 has come to a close already!  The days fly by and before you know it a
week has passed ........ things you thought you might have gotten done, remain undone ....... like some penfriend letters I've been going to sit and write the past few weeks since getting back from Christmas in Townsville!  On the other side of things, the excitement of a new year usually sets things off in other directions and crafting projects get underway once again.  OPAM has commenced and I managed a total of 7 items this month (5 dishcloths and 2 kitchen towels)..... its a start!


This weekend we headed down to Brisbane to celebrate my Dad turning 90!!!  He actually has an older Brother who is 92 (who couldn't make it) and 2 of his sisters still living!  We had a great time catching up with cousins and my Sister Kathy and her hubbie Jim managed to fly over from New Zealand for the weekend.  As you might be able to tell, I think the highlight for Dad was the cake and being centre of attention for quite a big photo shoot as we had lots of different members having their photo taken with him!

Afterwards Kathy and I were able to catch up a bit more and went for a lovely walk along the Wynnum foreshore chatting away ...... then after farewelling them, Pete and I went for a bit of a walk around the town ....... it was rather nostalgic seeing my old Primary School lit up.  Part of the grounds have been sold off and the school no longer is open .... I was there for Grades 1-4 and part of 5 and it holds some wonderful memories.   Many of you will be aware of the flooding in Townsville at present, so much of my weekend has been spent on the phone with our son and friends who live up there.  Our Son and his family have been lucky so far that the house they just purchased prior to Christmas has not gone under water - they are cut off, but safe.  Other friends have had to evacuate while others are still watching and waiting.  Prayers are going out to all those currently affected by the flooding in North Queensland.  Take Care,  Hugs Sharm

Lovely to be able to celebrate with your dad and family. Fingers crossed for your son....my daughter and husband
are in Townsville too.....fortunately all ok and unlikely to flood....and the road to the hospital is still useable.....she is 36 weeks pregnant....so we are glad of that news.

Happy Birthday to your Dad! It sounds like a lovely visit. I'm actually quite glad to see the back of January as no one I know (in real life) seems to have had a great start to year! I hope your son and friends are ok and the flooding is over soon :)
