Cute pig sculptures in Rundle Mall in Adelaide, taken in January this year when we were on holiday.

I've got quite a lot of pictures to post, of that holiday and another one to Broken Hill more recently, but I am going to string them out while I ease back into blogging!

Family stuff has settled down a LOT and things are much easier and more satisfactory.  As for work stuff ... well, let's just say that is in the hands of (very expensive) lawyers and I won't say anything more about it for the moment.

I've been quite unwell for about four months now though things are improving.

On the crafting front, I have started a Kaffe Fasset jumper that I bought as a kit before 1999, can't remember exactly when. It's so old I can't find an image online!  I will post a photo of the picture on the front of the pattern when I get a chance.  Or there's this link from Ravelry

Harbinger of spring?

The first bloom on my banksia rose for the year, which gets lots of full sun.
I know I have been very absent from blogging this year. I have had a terrible time with work and family issues since the start of the year, most of which I don't want to make too public. I have been keeping up with some friends on Facebook but I know that some people who (used to?) read my blog aren't on there. Anyway. I just wanted to say that there are good reasons for my absence this year so far, but things are now improving and I will be trying to do short blog posts at least once a week from now on.

Sirius post surgery

Poor Sirius has had three lumps and a loose tooth removed a week ago. This was taken while she was recovering. She is now sprightly and happy again :)
