Going again....

Exciting news to start my post - the painting is finished in the bedroom and it looks great!! I am so pleased with it. Next up is the carpet being laid on Monday then getting the furniture delivered and the curtains up! Then of course you will have photos and lots of them!!!!

It seems like I have only just got back into posting and almost catching up on my blog reading and now I am heading off on another break.
Aunty Jan passed away last night, she battled so hard, she is now at peace with no more suffering.
I will head off tomorrow morning with Mum. It is a 1000km trip which usually takes us about 12 hours. It is not ideal conditions for travelling, it is forecasted to be 37 degrees with a high fire risk. The funeral will be on Monday and then I will travel home on Tuesday.
Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts, they have brought our family a lot of comfort.

RIP Janice Margaret MacDonald
