It all seemed so easy last week but now I don't seem to be able to write more than a few lines when I post a photo...   Not that I have much to say but I do wonder  why everything changes so regularly ..

WE have had a few people looking at the property but no offers yet !  Seems we are too far from the city for some, too isolated for others .... there will be a buyer and we can wait....!  At the moment I am enjoying the spring garden with all the colour and renewal. The winter seemed a long one somehow, making the spring very welcome.

We have grandchildren doing end of year exams, all very stressful  but there's no avoiding them ! One grandson hopes to come down to Canterbury for his tertiary study next year , but his acceptance depends on the results of his school exams ...he is particularly concerned.  DGD is beside herself with excitement as she is off to England via Hong Kong on Nov 30 th.  She will be going to stay with our other daughter and family and should have great time . She has just completed her second year  at university so we are pretty sure she will come back to complete her studies next year !  Wouldn't be putting money on it though !!

Have a good week.

Marion, your photographs are beautiful and welcomed at this time of year as we head into winter here in Canada. And they are a recording of a home loved and lived in for many years. Interesting the comments made by people looking at your home. Too far from the city so why did they ever come that far to look at it. Can't they read mileage on the advert? We have a very odd thing happening here. Our longtime neighbours (28yrs) have sold and will be moving out this month. They are looking forward to it, I'm not. Lou, our neighbour and my husband are very good friends and Lou checks on us regularly through the winter months. They want to go between Fla. and Ontario, Canada so are moving into a retirement community. Next door to the north of us, the house went up for sale recently. This house, in the 28 yrs. we've been here, has changed hands five times. It's up for over a million dollars. Can't think they'll get it but I don't think they are living in the house; they have a farm not far from here and I never understood why they bought there in the first place. And across the road, the house went up for sale yesterday. We are surrounded by houses for sale/sold. Getting to know new neighbours should feel exciting...I'm not sure why it doesn't.

Unsettling for you Rosey, to have so many of your close friends and neighbours moving on.. WE have been here for thirty years, we built the house in the corner of a paddock so everything above ground was planted by usYou are right....I am taking lots of photos in case this is our last Spring here ! It will be nice to have a record of the seasons.. One day I might even find out how to have an album made up... I have seen some lovely ones done via some site on the Internet , they say it is easy....!?!
