Guess what.........it's my 300th post



I can't quite believe I have written that number of posts and my blog isn't even 1 year old. I have been a bad blogger so far this year but the distraction of family home for the holidays really ruined my creativity both on my blog and in my sewing room, even knitting at night in front of the TV.

Now I'm back on track, Surfer Boy and Darling Daughter went off HAPPILY to school yesterday and again today. I was smiling too! A visit to my hairdresser and then a few hours in town doing bits and bobs. Today I have been fiddling around in the vege patch and cooking up a mini storm in the kitchen. I made some really tasty passionfruit cordial, so much fruitier than any store bought cordial without all the additives and colours.

I just went for a stroll down to the river and found a single piece of old china and this made me really happy as I haven't found much lately with all the tourists flocking around down there. When I got home I knew I had another piece of the same design and guess what.................they fit together. Now this is good news as this confirms my suspicions that I know the actual site these come from, they haven't just floated in on a tide. They are both fire damaged and from much reading at our local library and online I have discovered there was a timber mill in the late 1800's alongside our river and it burnt to the ground around the turn of the century bringing timber milling to an end in this area. Was this the lunchroom at the mill maybe or the owners kitchen, still more questions.

So thank you to my regular readers and anyone new. I love hearing from any of you, it brightens my day to make contact with fellow bloggers and blog readers as I live out of town and work from home, I need adult converstaions to keep me going. I promise to get my blogging back on track so you have something interesting to see and read regularly. Thank you also to a kind friend who this morning phoned me before she went off to work to check that I was ok because I hadn't answered he most welcome emails and I wasn't blogging, so very kind.

Wow!!! 300 posts, I never would have guessed you had posted twice as much as me and we started our blogs at the same time!!! LOL, you might have taken a holiday from the blog, but sometimes it's just what we need to get fresh thoughts and ideas, I look forward to what you have to blog about in the future posts and congratulations on your 300 posts milestone!

congratulations on your 300th post!
I have missed you - but like you I've been very busy over the last couple of weeks. Even though the kids have been at school for a week now, it's still crazy around here. Hopefully next week will signal a change in direction - more time to craft, and more time without children. Did I tell you that I now have 2 whole hours to myself each afternoon! Louis has started full time kindy! It's a wonderful feeling. (But I do miss them all a little bit too).
