Lazy Blogger...

I've been rather neglectful of my blog lately...too tired, too busy, nothing good to report...I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel a little bit now and am functioning much better than a week ago.

We went for a very very long overdue visit to my nanna last friday...Darcy is nearly seven  months old and this is the first time she has seen him...very bad granddaughter I am...

My Nanna turned 91 in April this year, and she still lives on her own in a house on a bush block 15 minutes from town...she's stubborn and I know where my children get that from.
I was lucky enough to be able to sort through some old photos while I was out there...I have brought some home to scan and keep for myself...the originals will be going back to Nanna. These photos are so very important and precious...I have found photos of my Pa when he was a toddler, when he was a child and photos of him from his army days in the jungle taken with a box brownie. There are also gorgeous photos of my Nan and photos of my dad and his brother and sister.

My Nanna also gave me this gorgeous tin that I have been coveting for the longest time...

she has 2 more...I have wonderful memories of Milo biscuits and Aktivite when I see this will be taking pride of place on a shelf in my sewing room.

While we were out there we also took a wander around the property...everyone had a turn sitting on the tractor...we went down to the dam and took some photos.
As I was driving home I had a little cry remembering my Pa, so many memories came flooding back being out there. Even thinking about it now I can remember the smell of the kitchen and how Pa would never let me leave without some veggies from his garden. He's been gone for 7 years now. Miss him.
