Being Granny

I spent a week in Victoria with my daughter and her family.  So much catching up to do.

Those special morning moments. Just out of bed, warm and cuddly.

Although it rained most of the time we got plenty of walks in.

Being Granny is the best thing I've ever done.

Clover's Granny quilt.


I had the most wonderful week with my family, thanks to Brian for keeping everything going along smoothly here at home on the farm.
Lots of rain fell here at home while I was away and the paddocks are looking pretty good.
The gardens are a bit unruly, but nothing a few hours of weeding won't fix. Brian's vegetable garden is, of course, looking resplendent with an abundance of food for us including my favorite, broccoli.
Now, back to the rhythm of every day life. How lucky I am.


  1. So wonderful you had a week long holiday with your grand daughters. You look so happy. Children are such a blessing! I adore the Clover Granny Quilt.

  2. So glad you got to spend some time away with your family. We have been getting some rain in Toowoomba as well thank God. Everything was getting quite dry. There is nothing like a vegetable garden after the rain, I swear you can see everything growing. Thanks for sharing, Guida.

  3. That is great that you had time with your granddaughters, Sally. They grow like weeds in between visits, don't they? Life is quite different when little ones are around and I must say a lot more noisy. LOL!

    1. Yes a bit noisy Chel. ;) You have the same distance issues as I do and, yes they change in small ways each time we see them. How often do you get to see your grandchildren? I'm hoping to fly over every 4 to 5 months from now on. :)

    2. Sally I usually fly up around May and early October to avoid the heat. However last October it was 40C already :-( The fares are overpriced so I book about six months ahead when there is a special. I have to go with QANTAS due to having to get to the airport from here which takes a couple of hours but I think the other airline which leaves in the morning charges much the same. I could fly return to Thailand for less!

  4. Thank you Zena and Guida. I had bought my flights to stay there for four nights, but after two days we all knew that it just wasn't going to be long enough. So darling daughter Lizzie changed my return flight. It's beyond wonderful to know that they really did want me there and to feel wanted.

  5. Sally you need not have worried about Clover's absolutely gorgeous quilt it is definitely a winner :-)

  6. The quilt id just beautiful! I love it. And such beautiful photos too. What a lovely time away. :)
