Floods


Along with a lot of others this week I have watched the flooding in Queensland. It's just devastating. Towns totally swept away. The loss of lives, livestock and property.
This photo is Hovells Creek that runs through the middle of my town. Yes this is high, it's over it's banks, but it's been higher.

Happy New Year

It's been some time since I blogged. I've been checking out a lot of craft blogs lately, so I'm feeling inspired and want to get my blog a bit more active.

What's been happening here....

  • I'm currently working on some bits and pieces for my daughter's birthday party next month.
  • Our male rabbit died the week before Christmas.
  • I hosted Christmas for the very first time. Everything went well. Lots of leftovers for the next few days.
  • We spent the start of the year in Yarrawonga amongst bugs, spiders, dragon flies, crickets/locust and mozzies.
  • The kids have taken an interest in cooking the last few months.
  • I'm doing project 365 - a photo a day for an entire year. So far so good.
  • I decided a Christmas that this year I will have handmade decorations on our tree.
  • I did a lot of reading during the year. Managed to read 33 books (11 more than last year).
