    October

    It’s been a very busy last month what with having luncheon with friends, two seperate visits from family members, and a friends wedding – we’ve had very little time at home over the weekends for down-time.

    springtime

    -=- Spring is here, and everything is budding out, flowering, setting fruit, or has already grown at an amazing rate – as happens at this time of the year!

We might also note here, that this observation was made by someone who has missed putting out their own Christmas Family Newsletter, for the last couple of years though!!! 🙄😁 Soooo – without further ado, here is a brief rundown of what we have been upto in the last month… (It may be brief!)

    wtf2019

    Its nothing short of terrifying to those of us that are getting older, how bloody quickly time marches on… We are obviously well overdue for an update – other than the random posts like the fact that the plants have been flowering – so being that the last proper update was in August, without further ado – let get into it!! September was a biiiiiig month – which started out with
