School Holidays

OH how i love school hoidays, This week we are swimming every morning because the kids have swimming lessons. Its nice to come home and not have to go anywhere if i dont want too.
Being a bit crafty and yesterday planned how im going to make my nieces birthday quilt. Sewed up some of another dolls quilt. Mended a few things that i kept putting off.
So this years challenge is to teach myself to crochet, nothing fancy i just want to be able to make blankets for the kids. I also have a blanket my great grandmother crotcheted a long long time ago and its pretty much falling apart but holds so much. I love it and LOVE YOU and MISS YOU heaps Nanna Kennedy!!!!

Camping DEC 08

We went camping for a couple of nights to "Dunn's Swamp" it is in the Wollemi National Park and is a lovely spot. Lots of swimming and bush walking done. Camping really is such hard work but lots of fun. The swamp which is really just a dam is lovely and no speedboats allowed which makes it better for people like us who just like to swim and fish
