New Beginnings.

So many months have passed since I last wrote..
You would think after all this time that we would have solved all our problems and those of the rest of the world in general! But no, most things have remained the same....


It's funny isn't it that they say you never know what you've got until it's gone... well, when we were thinking about all our options, moving, downsizing, neither of us could bear to leave the farm and house in which we have spent most of our married life.......
So many memories... so much love... so much security...
       so we are staying..... we are going to hang in there and hope that life remains kind to us...


We hopefully will be joined soon by our beautiful daughter and son-in-law and gorgeous Max....

Just like an old-fashioned family support system.... to be there for each other.....


We now have a precious new member of our family....

Ella Lorraine.
 
Ella was born early August to our son and daughter-in-law..
Another beautiful grandchild to cherish....
 
 
A very big thankyou to blogging friends who have stopped by through the months to say 'hi', and check up on the farm-gal.....your support meant so much....
