Time Flies!

Well, where has that time gone? We have achieved so much since my last post.

We sold our van, purchased a house in Tasmania,  I traveled to England and Scotland with a life-long friend. Sadly,  we lost my daughter-in-law to cancer, we sold the house in Tasmania and we are now living on the South Coast of NSW.

Do I have regrets?  Only one! I wish my daughter in law was still with us! Looking on the positive side, I am so grateful that she chose my son to be her husband and together they gave us two treasured little boys and many, many wonderful memories that I will take to my grave.  I could never have wished for a better daughter in law. Thanks, Shez.

So, after we reached Tasmania, we loved it so much we decided to sell the caravan and purchase a house. That house was just perfect! The only thing missing was my kids and grandkids. Eighteen months later a snap decision was made and here we are back in New South Wales.  Back with the most important possessions in the world…..our family.

While I was in Tasmania I began to study online with the University of Tasmania (UTAS). Diploma of Family History was my choice (of course).

I have been researching our family since 1981 and I thought I was well versed in research, after all those years. I was so wrong! I have learned so much.  I have one more unit to do and I will graduate.

Now, while I have been unpacking, I found my folders from Uni and I thought that I would like to preserve the stories I have written during my study. I was going to save them all in a file on my computer but I thought that they would eventually get lost. Then the lightbulb clicked and I recalled my WordPress Blog.  This is the place where I can save them and share with those who wish to read them………and I won’t lose them!

So my next few blogs will be my essays.  My last blog, being my niece’s wedding was part of my studies. I hope you enjoyed it. I enjoyed the wedding and the unit.

I hope you enjoy my stories.
