Back in the north

Had a fabulous time and am shattered.  Below, some of the things I saw and did…

  1. Tanya, I love the family photos! There’s a strong family resemblance between all you ladies.
    Too bad your mum and dad didn’t make it down.
    The quilt is absolutely beautiful. Such a wonderful combination of colours.
    As for the other photos….all postcard worthy! I especially love the ‘under the pier’ one. Lovely, all. Thanks for sharing them.
    Whose birthday was it? Both Geoffrey and Edna’s?

  2. Thanks for the photos, Tanya. I love any photos that contain water, and the pier one is so full of character. Rye, another place where we once planned to live…….oh well.

    I spoke to Geoffrey and Edna last night and they were so thrilled with their day, everyone who was there, and especially the quilt, which was a fantastic surprise.

    Glad you were there and able to catch up with rellies, especially cousins.

    Yes, Kerri, G&E both turned 70 – birthdays two weeks apart.

  3. Hi honey… We are doing much better now though it is still hard to bear when we talk to family about it all. Just when I think the pain is easing… I talk to my nephew or Dad… and it starts all over again. We’ll be okay! Time is a natural healer of all wounds.
    I adore the quilt… very pretty! I am starting one tomorrow… just can’t decide if I want traditional or funky.
    I am in love with those nature photos. I should send you some of mine… though yours are much better.
    Your ‘donation’ post was beautiful. Everyone wants to help in some way or another. Everything helps… whether it be food, money, clothes, toys or furniture. It all helps.
    Love to you.. Nic xox
