I am still here - just

Been a manic time over the past three weeks. Traveling around western New South Wales. Only home long enough to pack a bag, attend meetings and professional learning.

Last week I was away for the whole week and nearly didn't get home as the road was closed due to the rain we have had over such a short time.

I have been trying so hard to change my way of life. Walking, eating and throwing in some exercise. I have a work colleague to walk with and an a email friend who inspires me regularly. Small changes are taking effect but certainly needs to be a long term projects.

Cleaning up my garden. Cut back the geisha girl.

Friends for Xmas all done.

This year I joined in to the fun swap hosted by Cheryll.
You had to make something that had a heart and an initial and send something nice.

Well I was blown away with my gifts from Anna.

This mini is just adorable.
Thanks Anna and. Cheryll.

Initial heart swap.

My parcel has been mailed off. Hope my partner likes my gifts. I have revived my parcel from Anna.
With the temperatures being ridiculous high 30 and 40 plus my chocolate was quite melted so I jus had to eat it. I will open my wrapped parcel on the 14th. Just because.

I have been walking regularly for the past week. I am getting 8000 steps at least four times a week. For me this is huge. I even headed out this morning when my walking buddy slept in.

Talia is packing up here room. Five more days and she will be gone. Off to Canberra to start her double degree. Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of teaching. She is majoring in ancient History and minor if in Religious Education.
She is attending the uni where I went to.

Being a hooker ....

I have joined an Aussie Temperature blanket - loom/crochet/knitted Facebook group.

I am making hexagons (which would be such a surprise).

I am loving my colour choices and how this blanket is coming together.

Day 22 update.

This weekend has been such a wonderful one. My three girls were all home along with Talia's boyfriend Zac and Candice's boyfriend Jack.

Friday night was a night of celebration. Loud music and alcohol was part of the night.

Saturday Candice, Bridie, Jack and I headed over to Parkes. We ate breakfast at Bellas then headed out to see the Dish. Jack was so excited!!

The girls tried many times to "hold" up the dish.

This is Bridie.

Next time Candice and Jack come they will be bringing Jack's son, Bailey. We might be heading up to Dubbo Zoo.
