Well it has been very hectic over the last few days, which hasn’t given me anytime to get on and post anything. The sale on Saturday went very well, with quite a few ladies calling in and stocking up on fabric for those projects over winter and beyond. The way the weather has been lately it would be lovely to just be able to sit by the fire and stitch. But alas it is calving time for us on the farm and my sewing will now be restricted to the days when I’m at the shop. It’s cows and calves first and everything else has to fit in around them. Although I do have to squeeze in a stocktake in there somewhere!
I did have the milking off last night, which is a rare occurrence at this time of the year. I drove our eldest, Emma, to the airport to catch her flight to Birmingham, England where she will spend 12 weeks working at the Heart of England Hospital. Emma was excited but also very nervous as it is the first time she has flown anywhere on her own. As I type this she will almost be at Dubai, so it won’t be long until she’s in England. I was even surprised when I got a hug from her – something I haven’t had since she was about 4. I hear a lot of you gasp – but that’s just Emma, no kisses or hugs.
It will be a fantastic opportunity and I’m sure she’ll have a great time.
I also took Hannah to Melbourne to stay for a few days as she has an interview on Tuesday for a cadetship with a large firm in the city. Like Emma, she was also excited and very nervous, but I'm sure she'll do her best.
Thank you to everyone who has joined my BOM. The first month will be ready for collection (or will be posted) from this Thursday 3rd July. Please remember if you are having any trouble with it just pop back into the shop and I can show you what to do. It's not too late to join up - if you are interested please let me know.
Finally I'd like to say a special hello to my mum who is learning how to use email and the internet thanks to my niece. Lillian has been instructing Mum and has even created a shortcut to my blog for her. Have a great time blogging and surfing Mum.
