Good morning everyone and Happy New Year to all!!!!!!

I have had my break from the internet now, so hopefully I can get right back into the swing of things quickly!

Life has been mega hectic in my neck of the woods of late and I am looking forward to some me time. My latest drama has had my daughter, Magella, bedbound for days. She hurt her back on Xmas Day. By Boxing Day she was in hospital with it. She is now home....her home....but the meds given to her are giving her a right old time. She has just texted for mum to go keep her company...Sigh!...I knew it was too good to be true...thinking I had a day to myself!

Besides this, my hubby has had the most unenviable task of putting his mum in a nursing home. It must be really really rotten to have your body fall apart around you, when your mind is still pretty sharp! Come to think of it, I think that's what mine is doing and I am not even 50!

The weather here continues to be stifling and overbearingly hot! Relief comes in storms...well relief from the heat while it is actually storming...as soon as the storm has buzzed off the heat descends again! Being a farmer's wife I listen to the tale of woe all the time on the matter of weather...At the moment, said farmer is not happy coz he didn't get his bean all planted before the last downpour. He is currently down the paddock seeing if it is dry enough to continue today...This is after he nearly bogged himself yesterday. (I do not say anything! What would a mere woman know??!!)

Here is my entry for this fortnight's challenge with the SCS Blogger Group 3 girls. Voting for our entries will begin tomorrow, so I would love for you to pop back here to grab the link and go and vote...Better with lots of votes :)

Happy days, ladies!
