This is my second post of what I have been doing, in the second three months of Covid-19 restrictions. Life is certainly interesting, in several states of Australia. Victoria is in a hard Stage-4 lock-down, with an 8.00pm curfew and their borders are closed. Queensland have closed their border, again. Tasmania still have their border closed. A bright spot in the past three months was having the small grandchildren come and stay, during the last school holidays. We had Miss 4 stay first and spent time playing in the park and making cup-cakes. We then had Master 6 stay and he and I spent time, together, sitting and reading. So in the past three months, what have you done? WHAT HAVE YOU ACHIEVED BETWEEN 1 JUNE 2020 AND 31 AUGUST 2020? It can be anything that is POSITIVE. Here is my list. Books read - 41. Craft - Started and finished a cardigan Finished a pair of socks I started last year. Started and finished a pair of socks. Started and finished 5 scarves.

Joy Murrin , of Joy Murrin Family History Service, offers transcripts for NSW, Victoria, England and Wales, Scotland and New Zealand. http://www.joyinfamilyhistory.com/ Joy also offers parti
Breathe, breathe, 20 days!!!!! Where has the past six months gone? It has been a busy 10 days, with lunches, coffee mornings, dinner with friends, SAG Writing Discussion Group, I chair that, the Botany Bay Family Heritage Fair, Mother's Day and organising the last of my transport! Actually I'm more organised than I thought, with just clothes and research to organise. SAG Writing Discussion Group was great as I had set a task of using only 250 words and including the five senses, write a family history piece. The pieces were wonerful and one even reduced the group to tears. We all agreed that it was a good excercise. The Botany Bay Family Heritage Fair is an annual event and was fun. I was on the Getting Started table, helping newbies with their research. Several have promised to keep in informed, as to how they are going. Mother's Day was relaxing, with both breakfast and dinner out and several hours spent sitting in the sun, knitting or reading. My my daughters
