About Me

My Photo
Married to Tony mother to 2 children Lucas 23, Gemma 26 & her boyfriend Sean. Carer for 2 crazy Jack Russells. I'm dyslexic so excuse any mistakes. The Stitching Room is where I spend my time playing with Clarice (my camera) and Bernie (my sewing machine). Come on in and see what I'm up to.

Feeling Guilty

Down here in South Australia we have been luck to have not been touched by the floods having said that the water is flowing south and the Hydrologists(a word I have never heard used so much before) say the flood waters are heading for the Murray.
It has been a devastating time and daily we are bombards with vision and sad stories. I have donated to the flood appeal and have sent a small parcel of sewing bit and bobs off but I have been feeling guilty that my life goes on unchanged.
I think the way news is purveyed has a lot to do with it, it is constant hour upon hour day after day.
Which is why I have put off doing this post
it is full of pictures of a wonderful day spent with Lucas while he was on holidays.
My car was due for a service and it would take about 5 hours. Where we have our car serviced is a fair way from home so I usually pack a sewing bag and just sit and wait. As Lucas was on holidays he suggested he would pick me up and take me to Monarto for the day.
He is such a good boy.
Lots of pictures here so leave the tour when ever you want.
