We had some good friends come to visit from the coast as as they are keen sewers and love to help out we asked them if they would be prepared to help us with a big project that we had started.
Our beautiful old Rail Heritage Barracks accommodation that we volunteer for, has need a bit of a revamp but as money was tight we opted to just do a bit of altering to the older style quilts to achieve a more streamlined look.
All 24 quilts have now been altered, laundered and returned to their beds at the barracks.
Thank you girls for that mammoth effort that you put in, It was so worth it and we really appreciate
all your hard work.
While the girls were here we decided to take a drive and head to the Warrumbungle National Park and head to a cafe we had heard about.
It had been completely destroyed in the devestating fire of January 2013 and has now been reborn with love.
I don't normally advertise or push a product or business but after visiting Tibuc Gardens cafe and meeting the owners Trish and Elaine and hearing their story, I decided to include the visit in this post.
The details are below.
It is still incredibly dry here, even though this happened, ( and here is the proof),we recorded 19 mms.
And as well as that Brian actually got to wear his raincoat to collect the eggs one afternoon,
I was able to send our visitors home with many dozens of eggs and a few big batches of lemon butter.
If we don't get substantial rainfall soon, we are certain that the fire restriction season will be brought forward , so we are taking advantage of what time we have available.
We have been doing some running repairs on our caravan,
We have had reason to be a little proud this week. Brian's brother Bill travelled ( along with the other Australian team members) to Maribor in Slovenia for the World benchrest shooting titles.
He and the team did Australia proud in the team events , GOLD and BRONZE !!!! Well done team.
On an individual level, Bill also excelled, bagging a silver medal. We are extremely proud and excited for him and all the Australian team members.
It has been great to have our visitors here for the week, and as much as we had a totally wonderful time it also was nice to just be the two of us again, not to have to think of meal preparation and special diet requirements ect.
We will have a few quiet days to relax and recharge.
So until we meet up a little further down the road of life
Jane and Brian.
