About Me.

A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.
Enjoy!

Help needed

Morning,
I run this blog on my PC and am trying to workout how I can use the iPad, when I'm away to blog. As the email attached to this is a Microsoft account I am wondering if that is the problem.
Any advice, suggestions or hint are welcome.

Interesting Week

Well I have had a very interesting week, I went to Melbourne! It was Grandparents Day at my youngest  granddaughters school and I haven't been able to make it the last two years, I went.

I was very adventurous, booking online, ordering the Skybus ticket and topping up myki. I just took carryon and it was wonderful.

Grandparents Day was beautiful, with time in the classroom, being interviewed as to what school was like when I attended and then an assembly. As she is in the band, I got to watch her perform. The school also had an open night and I went to that as well.

I also had some time with both girls, when their parents went out. The eldest and I had a wonderful talk about all different things. They are both very talented girls.

I've been knitting beanies for my grandson and will give them to him, tomorrow. I get to babysit him!

What has been going on.

I realised that it has been awhile since I blogged.

I've been studying, knitting, reading, taking photos and being Grandma.
These two books are really good reads.
Nora always writes a great story. This one is about Faberge eggs and is really good. I don't want to give to much away but it starts with a girl seeing a murder, along the line of the movie "Rear Window" and then moves along from that.
The Tea Chest is a good chick lit book. Strong female leads and a quirky story line.  Think about different teas and tea shops.



This is for James and was fun to knit. I like the fact that it has a shoulder opening, making it that much easier to get on and off.


I'm growing Basil and couldn't resist trying to capture a close up of the bees that were having fun in it. They ignored me and using my zoom I was able to get these shots.

I love Autumn with it wonderful colours. This tree has given me so many different moods that I can't resist photographing it.
This is my favourite one taken several years ago. I love the contrast between the sunlight on the leaves and the grey sky.

I have finished two more subjects and am waiting on the results. I did get an A for the Copyright subject.
