I'm Back ...

And it has only taken nearly a month to organise the phone line (first call made to my provider on the 25th of January), request broadband, have that switched on at the exchange and then receive my new modem, happily picked up from the post office the morning and I bet the post mistress was glad!

After spending nearly an hour setting all the "new" things up, I am nearly there.

The good news is my family are absolutely loving our new location, have settled into a new school very well, Little Miss adores her new uniform, and we have entered and won prizes in our local Gunning Rural Show, we have a new pony called "Misty" and six Dohne ewes, and my husband is enjoying his new job.

I've also discovered some rather nice groups in the area, including the Wednesday Crookwell Patchwork Quilters Group, the local Gunning Sew and Chat Group, the Gardening Club, and there are quite a few things to put on the agenda to attend in the coming months!

The Southern Tablelands of New South Wales - Events and Festivals

I have been knitting a little bit, but have sort of lost my motivation with my sewing a little bit, but I'm sure it will come back when I am a bit more settled.

There are also three gorgeous cafes in town - The Merino Cafe, The Old Hume Cafe and The Bentley on Hume Cafe. Naturally, I've been sharing my patronage around and have taken my kids for milkshake one day a week at all three so far, and a few hot chocolates here and there for myself.

If you are ever on your way down the Hume Highway, stop off in Gunning for a break. The food is excellent and it is quiet and easy to get into and then back onto the highway!

More photos and more chat later!

  1. Yeah you are back. I have been wondering where you are. I will check out the link re the dress. Charmaine

  2. Hiya, its great to see that you have settled in so well. Last time we were there for the Gunning Fireworks (you must go it was amazing) I spied a little vintage/antique shop in the main street but I didn't get to call in. Tamara

  3. nice to have you back! sounds like everything is working out well... winning prizes at shows and so on... but you don't mention op shops??? there's got to be a few amazing ones out there, right?

  4. Fourth Daughter is right in her assumption that there are op shops in this area and indeed I have visited them. Must write formal report on this matter when I have revisited them and have also taken photos of purchases which must do soon and must remember all acquisitions.
