Day 1

Wow .Long day in the car but lovely nonetheless.After leaving at 7.50am we arrived at the free camp in Conargo at about 5.15 pm.Conargo is just North of Deniliquin. In the first hour we had fog and gloom and in the last hour we had the most amazing sunset.In between I played yahtzee with myself and talked to Ian to keep him awakeHe did night shift last night so hasn't been to bed since 10 pm last night.It didn't take long to settle in here.Cooked our tea , drank some nice wine and soon to bed .Will be awake at sparrowfart after such an early night.

Catch you soon xx

The Big Day

Well, at last the big day has come.I am up early in the dark waiting for Ian to come home from work.The van is packed ,Jacques de Lapin is safely stowed in his little tin in my bag and the house sitter is still in her warm bed. All I have to get through now is farewelling the animals and we are off. It has been hard saying 'catch you later' to the local family but am looking froward to seeing the Brisbane crew-specially Mahli and the new Princess.
Must turn the computer off ,grab some brekky and be waiting when Ian gets here.Catch you on the road.

The Travellers

Today I received the most gorgeous parcel from an Etsy friend - Julie Blanchette.This little bloke is going on our travels with us. I have named him Jacques de Lapin . He is just beautiful and is already checking out his new home. Thankyou Julie.I am so chuffed to have one of your amazing bunnies .Keeping him away from Mahli in Brisbane might be tricky but he is miiiiiiine.

About Me

My photo
I am a self taught arter crafter and I love to make soft toys ,dye fabric and paint. I live on a small farm in the south of Australia.It is a beautiful place ,though on a stinking hot summers day when the temp is high and the North wind is howling it loses some of its appeal.I have a lovely husband,four grown children and six extraordinarily attractive grandchildren.We have three dogs ,two cats,fifteen chooks,three ducks ,two geese and a few hundred sheep on our little farm so that keeps us in touch with nature most days.We love to grow our own vegetables and have a lovely big hothouse for the winter veg.I spend most days involved with crafting ,enjoying my husbands company and some days being Nanny to the grandkids while their parents are doing what they have to do.When we have had enough of everything and everybody we love to hitch up our caravan and disappear over the horizon for a while.I am a proud member of the etsy DUST Team and have etsy stores at
