A photographic and written record of a Crafty Rambling Retiree and her equally creative "Other Half".

Goin' on a 'venture
Only one more sleep to go and we will be starting out on our next adventure.
Whew! What a month and a week this has been. A wedding shoot, an embroidery workshop, and a mad "spring" clean throughout the house all in one week - I am exhausted but very excited that we are about to start our travels again.
Our High Tea event was a wonderful success - despite the rain (the only day over Easter that it rained!) and I raised a whopping $705. My gratitude to all who made a donation to the cause, it is wonderful to know I have such great support from family and friends. More photos on my MS fund raising page:
The wedding shoot was a wonderful success - the rain even held off until we had finished photographing the happy couple, and even then it was just a very short shower. We managed some beautiful shots and I'm sure Dale and Calam will be very happy with the end product. Here are a couple of shots.
My embroidery workshop was really taxing but I quite enjoyed learning some new techniques and will endeavour to complete the project before we return from Tasmania in August.
Our mad "spring" clean has resulted in some very big bags of clothing being taken to St Vinnies and our cupboards have not been so organised since we moved into the house twelve and half years ago! Even the "tupperware" cupboard is organised - whew that took hours!
Carpets have been cleaned, rubbish deposited, windows and floors washed. My we are a clean shining house!
The "Truck" is packed - and I'm not sure how it will make it up our hill with all that gear - but we are certainly all ready to go. We head off to Brisbane at 11.30am on Tuesday,16th April, where we will board the "Spirit of the Outback" for the first leg of our adventure. Once we get to Longreach I'll attempt to make the first entry in our travel blog.
This will be my last blog entry on this, our home blog, until we return at the end of August. However, for those of you who might like to follow our travels you can track us on our travel blog: www.theramblingretirees.blogspot.com.au
Until we return, stay safe and enjoy life - we certainly will be.
