I'm back

Well I'm back...
We had a lovely few days in Sydney. It was nice to get away, although it's a hectic and busy city. I think the next trip will be somewhere a little more relaxing!

We did lots of walking, our hotel was right in the city so we walked to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. We found a great Irish pub where we had a brilliant dinner and a few drinkees!
Surprisingly, my children were so well behaved for my sister. She doesn't have kids of her own so she was able to stay at our house. I think we missed the kids more than they missed us!
We said next time we'll take them with us, it's all good in theory to have some quiet time away, but when you spend that time wishing you were with them, it kinda defeats the purpose!
We're moving house on the 7th September, so it's all busy, busy at the moment with packing.
I'll let you know how we go...
Best wishes,

Off we go...

We're off to Sydney early tomorrow morning, for a lovely few days away. The kids are staying with my sister (OMG hopefully they'll be ok!)

My hubby booked this trip for my 30th birthday (which was last Tuesday 11th Aug)

So we'll have a lovely child free, relaxing few days...

Hopefully I'll have some nice holiday snaps to share when we return.

Best wishes,

Yes I'm still here...

Sorry I've been absent for so long. So much has been going on right now...
I've only had the time for a little sewing, the above pink Raggy Runner...

Raggy U pillow covers - I'm currently in the middle of another 2 for an order...

And this pink and green raggy quilt that was a custom order.

I've been mostly busy with cleaning and tidying of our house, as we sadly have decided to sell.

We have not had the best of times in the last year since we bought our first home. We have a neighbour who has created such a bad situation for us that we have no option other than to move.

It's so very sad that one person can create so many problems and conflicts, and we now have to sell the house we've worked so hard to make into our cosy home.

But my childrens, and our happiness must come first, and of course a house is only a material thing.

I must thank Tammy for her concern, and I think she's just amazing for somehow being able to know I was having some problems from so far away!

I will keep you updated on what happens...hopefully our house will sell quickly and we can move on. Cross your fingers and toes for me!

Best wishes,
