Memories


Had a blast from the past this week working on Challenge 5 in the Amazing Scrapbooking Journey over at Country Paper Craft. We had to scrap a building that had some significance in our lives. After numerous emails back and forth with Lee, we both realised that the houses that we both lived in when we were first married were cottages on our farms. So I scrapped "The Shack" and Lee did "The Cottage". Our little home was originally the Dairy on my family farm and we converted it into a 4 room little flat. It was very special and we lived there for the first 5 years of our marriage. Kimberley and Michael were both born while we lived there and after we moved, my sister and her DH lived there as well. In later years my Grandmother lived there to be close to my Mum.

In other news, we have signed a contract to sell our farm block and I have now confirmed that I am going to Perth (Bruce Rock actually) in October to the CPC Retreat!!!!! I am so excited as I have never been to WA before and I also get to travel with JULIE .H!!!! Going to have a blast I am sure!! DH is actually leaving a couple days after me and going to the NT on a fishing trip.

SE Qld has certainly broke many records in the rain department this week, but unfortunately we didn't get anything of any substance here in the South Burnett. Here's hoping for some more soon. The boys at Noosa are still flooded in where they live so it could be a while before they get back to work. Here's my LO of "The Shack"
