Catching up, no 1 (Pre Christmas)

I haven't posted for a while. Everything has just been full on with Christmas and family things, camping, and running camp conqueror. I feel I am back to my life now, so there is lots to catch up on on the blog.

Firstly gorgeous Abby. She is my friend's baby, and this was the first time I met her. What a gorgeous little thing. I even got smiles (after mum had fed her!)

She even had her first visit to conqueror (where I know her mum and dad from) and I showed her where she'll be sleeping in a couple of years. It'll seem like no time at all Karl!!!

My sunflowers. Aren't they lovely. Of course they don't look like this anymore, they are ready to pick and store to feed to my chooks over winter.

This is little Ze, who is living in Jordan with his mum and dad and sister now. They came to visit just before Christmas, and came around for breakfast. His big sister A helped me feed the chickens and water the garden. (Which is all being eaten now, but I don't think they'll let me post any to Jordan to share :)

Christmas Eve we had a party over my back fence for the young adults from my church. Great night, with good food and even better company. Geoff my neighbour and Jonina my lil sis in the photo above after a feed and my bro in law Glyn and friend Bec below.

It's great having such an active group it's very welcoming, and a big range of people who come along, which grew to a large part out of our bible study group.

Probably one of the most sad things that happened before Christmas was saying good bye to Leah, my colleague. Leah and her Husband Tim are moving to Sydney to work with children and and young people at a church up there. That's an amazing opportunity for them but means that I am once again the youngest person at work by about 20 years. I love working with my colleagues, but it was amazing working with Leah, catching up socially and doing coffee which I will miss a lot. I will be coming to visit you soon!

Here are my interview questions. Sorry it took so long.

1. How did you first become interested in 'backyard self-sufficiency', and what are your goals in this area?

2. Who has most inspired you in your life?

3. What is the most inspiring or interesting place you have ever visited, and why?

4. If you could have your absolute favourite meal, what would it be?

5. How did you become a Christian, and what does your faith mean to you?

Have fun!
