If you had...

If you had a grown up daughter who lived in the city, I'm sure you would want to let her know the news from home. I bet you'd text her, call her, and email her often. 

 And I know you'd miss her too. Her funny ways, her beautiful smile, her company.

I know you'd want her to see how things are changing back at home.

How old things are becoming new again,

If she couldn't come home too often I'm sure you'd be showing her photo's of the changes in seasons, maybe the new little apples on your apple tree. Or the clucky chooks who spread their feathers over an ever growing nest of eggs. And she would probably laugh at your 'farmyard' and crazy collection of animals.

If you had a beautiful daughter who lived in the city I bet you'd want her to know that even though back at home things are changing, evolving, growing..

that some things will never change. You'd want her to  know that her home is always with you, that family life isn't the same without her, that she is missed & loved & talked about every day.

Do you have children that have moved out of home? Or family that live overseas? Do you keep in touch with your loved ones through the internet? Do you blog, Skype, FaceTime?
Do you see what they are up to on Face Book or Instagram?

All these things are great, I love the way we can connect with each other in so many ways. I love that I can share our news, and our thoughts, our photo's and words.
But if you had a grown up daughter who lived in the city I bet, just like me,
you would be over the moon to be seeing her in real life...

See you soon Char, and see you soon too lovely ones xo

And the winner is..!

Our school fete! Don't you just love a fete? I do. We've just had ours and it was fantastic!

It's such a fun community event and we were so lucky to have such a sunshiny day too. I had fun with Tracey at the second hand clothes stall. It's a good feeling to be recycling lovely clothes and other bits while also raising money for our little school.

The other stalls were fantastic, I loved the plants and books, the fairy floss and of course the cake stall. Yum! It's such a busy time of year isn't' it? Fetes, festivals, concerts..wow. What are you busy with lately?
