This is what makes it all worth while...

Ben and I moved all our stuff over a couple of days in 42'C heat but this is what makes it worthwhile...a view from our garden in the morning...we now live on five acres amongst the vineyards...And then in the evening after a horrible day moving stuff we sat by the pool and had a nice cold drink while E swam around and terrorised the cat.....nice view isn't it! The house and garden need some work and we are in a BIG MESS at the moment but it is worth it!
Today E and I took a break from unpacking and such at lunch time and met some of our mums group down the park for a picnic...the kids had a ball and it was great to catch up with my friends who are now only a few minutes down the road again!
So needless to say the scrap room or should I say Scrap Studio....lol... is in a BIG MESS too so no scrapping happening... but Ben has put up my new book case which is fab :) And he is getting onto the other one! But as I have to get my classes ready for the Hyden Retreat in two weeks I had better get cracking!

Hope you all have had a good week - Lissy

Oh wow Lissy.
That view is amazing.
Pity everything had to be moved in 42 degree heat but seeing that view, as you say, makes it all worth while.

I am totally green and some!
Heaven.
