Happy New year

Well yes, I know it's a bit late. What better time for my first post though?

It's been a pretty busy time lately. We had DH's Mum coming to stay for Christmas - but the day of her arrival I was rushed to hospital by ambulance. I ended up having emergencey surgery at midnight. I was allowed home Christmas Eve and best of all, got out of cooking Christmas lunch!!

DD & DS are both away visiting their grandparents for a couple of weeks in Victoria, so I am having quiet convalescing time. Also some much appreciated together time with DH. We had the loveliest dinner at a local winery - Murdocks at Tanunda. I can highly recommend it!!!!!

We are getting very excited as the start of the Tour Down Under approaches. Tuesdays stage passes right by our front door. DH is riding in the breakaway ride on the Friday - even after 3 years I cannot understand the urge to ride a bike for 150kms though lol. Still, he enjoys it and we love being his support team.

We have a few new additions to the family - 2 muscovy ducklings a couple of weeks before Christmas, and 5 new laying hens last Saturday. So DD will be most excited when she gets home. She's our resident 'chook lady'.

On the stitching front, I am having trouble settling to anything atm. I have signed up for a couple fo swaps though, so will spend some time hunting out some possibly desgns to stitch.

I spent yesterday making cherry jam. It is sooo yummmmmmmmmm lol. Nectarine jam to be made today!!!
