These two photos are of the road outside my house. One looking south the other North. Very soon they will be sealed and the problems of dust in the summer and mud in the winter will be no more. I'm happy about this but also s little sad. 26 years we have lived on this dirt road and I think it adds to the rural feel of the area. But times change and soon we will have a made road and my car will be very grateful for that 
See ya

The mockingjay part 1

Today hubby and I had a date day and we went and saw this movie.
I have read all the books, and during our trip around Australia I downloaded them on audio book and we both listened to them in the car.
He was hooked.
So off we went today and watched this in gold class.
I was very impressed. It was very close to the book and I loved it.
If you haven't read the books. I highly recommend them. If you can't be bothered or not a reader get the first two movies and give them a look, then go and see this one.
It has finished at a perfect spot and will keep all the fans on the edge of their seats. 
I really like this and even though I know the end, I just cannot wait for the final movie.
I really want to see it NOW lol
See ya

High tech

Getting everything ready for the big trip. I'm not going to take my iPad. Just my phone and laptop. 
So I have to make sure they are synced so I can transfer photos. As usual if there is something going on bella has to be if the thick of it. She was so much help lol

Getting back into the groove

I really haven't felt very creative recently. I wasn't picking up my needles at all. No knitting no crochet. I would just sit and read. Which is fine but I knew it wasn't normal to at least want to make things for me.
But I've been inspired again. I've started making these. And guess what they will be
Yup I'm going to make a frog!
Isn't he delightful. So as to set the knowledge firmly into my head I'm make two sets of each stage so effectively I'll be making two frogs at the same time. 
I have the yarn reqdy for the second frog. I'll show you when I hav finished all of them. 
But for now I'm making 14 hexagons in this colour combo. What do you think? Pretty cool huh!
See ya xx

Life is slowly becoming a little more calm and the new normal is settling in. After the extreme high of my baby girls wedding and then spending the next week in the hospital and saying goodby to my soul sister and partner in crime I have taken it very easy
Everyday something happens that I want to share with leanne or I think I haven't spoken to her in a few days I must ring. Or I think leanne hasn't texted me recently. And the realisation that these things will never happen again hits me like a ton of bricks and I spiral down again.
But I know she would want me to pick myself up and carry on.
So I've slowly been getting ready for my big trip.
My sister in law, her two daughters and I are leving for a huge girls trip around Europe.
I so need this right now and I'm amazed how the universe works that a trip booked over 12 months ago is exactly what I need now
So get reqdy for a virtual holiday. I'll try and post most days
But for now I'll keep putting one foot infront of the other, taking it one hour at a time and I know ill will get thought this no matter how many times I falter and cry
See ya

We laughed 
We cried
We sang and
We danced
But today you took a little of my heart and you went away
I will always miss you
Your smile
Will be with me always
Rest now 
You fought the good fight
But the monster took you away
Love you to the moon and back
My friend
