Long Time No Post

Have you been wondering where I have been?

Pat & I have been away up north of South Australia in Whyalla. Our best friend's son was married at the weekend and while there we brought back some furniture that was being stored for us.

So over the next few days I have some wonderful photos to share with you.

This table was made back in the 1970's by Pat's father. The wood was used as staging planks in the Whyalla Ship Yards and Pa used some to make the kitchen table for his family. The Shipyards closed in the late 70's and as Pat did his apprenticeship at the shipyards, this table holds many memories for him as well as the whole family.

Pa has moved to Sydney to live with one of his daughters and so we were honored to be given the table to keep it in the family.

So Monday was spent cleaning the new furniture and finding spots for it all in the house.

On the way up to Whyalla we called in to see my dad & step mum. The photos below are from their garden and some of these plants we cuttings that we gave them from Pa's garden in Whyalla, years ago.

My plants are not as big as Betty's but I am excited to think mine could have some of these colours once they flower.

Until next time....hoo roo
