Away from home for 3 weeks

My eldest son has started an apprenticeship in Bundaberg.  He is living on our property just south of Bundy and as he doesn't have a driver's licence (yet!) either DH or I have to come and stay with him.  We don't expect this to be a long term thing as he has done everything required to get his licence, just has to sit the practical test.  I expect he will have it in the next month or so.  DH brought him up here last week and spent the week here.  I came up on Australia Day and we made a long weekend out of it - a very wet one as it turned out.  DH left with the other children yesterday morning - leaving a very quiet household of just DS and me.  I have been making the most of the time and have finished the stitcheries on The Garden of Life Quilt.  I have traced the stitcheries for another quilt.  I've visited the LQS in Bundy this morning and will be spending some of my time there as well as joining the local quilter's group.

Missing the children, of course - but making the most of my time away.  Although, I could get used to the quiet.  Have great plans to catch up on Some Kind of Wonderful, Dear Jane and Farmer's Wife quilts.

I will endeavour to organise some photos, but unfortunately, my second DS lost my internet connector for the laptop and so I have to rely on finding WIFI to use the internet.  Can be notoriously slow and prone to dropping out.  We'll see how we go.  I enquired this morning about buying another connection - but at $299, he can keep looking!!

Maccas has free wireless internet and not too bad coffee :)
Glad to hear you're joining the local group and have your stitching to keep you busy.

Enjoy the quiet, it's so rare for a mum, lol! Sounds like you have enough to keep you busy. Hope he finds that connector - that's way too much money, yikes!
