I must say that I really love this photo - three generations - father, son and grandson. We must do the same for the ladies of the family soon.

Another trip North
First of all I must apologise to, and also thank, all of the people who have continued to check my blog throughout my 'lazy phase', and enquired as to our well-being during that time. I sincerely appreciate your care and concern.
Let me assure you that we are perfectly well and enjoying life. We've been busy in the garden, and then enjoying our new loungesuite when it's too cold to work in the garden.....lol. We've had some glorious autumn weather interspersed with some very cold windy days, but not much rain. The frosts are here but they usually herald a fine sunny day. The day may begin at -5º but if it reaches a maximum of 15º then it actually feels quite warm (relatively) with a 20º range.
I've also spent quite a bit of time in my sewing room, primarily making things for the smaller grandchildren. It's warm and cosy down there and I can play my music and sew to my heart's content.
Earlier this month we flew to Qld again to spend time with Russ and Michelle and their families. Unfortunately I seem to forget about taking photos much of the time. On Mothers' Day we visited the Cabarlah Markets and then had lunch at a delightful outdoor area a short distance away. The rest of the week passed far too quickly but enjoyably - playing with the Evie and Liam, relaxing with Russ and Shannon, plus planting bulbs, shopping, sewing curtains, while Richard had great fun in Russ's shed, sorting tools and building a few things like planter boxes and bird houses.
At the end of the week we spent a few days with Michelle and family, which is always a pleasure, as well as spending one day in Brisbane primarily to indulge in one of my favourite pursuits in that city - travelling the Brisbane River on one of the City Cats.
Whilst I was very happy with this photo with the grandchildren, we hope it will be superseded in a few weeks when Tanya, Geoff and Arlo arrive from China. There's still space there for Arlo to complete the Grandparent/Grandchildren photo.
