About Me

With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

wet wet wet!

You know how sometimes it is good to give your pot plants a good soaking in a tub and then let them drain a bit? Well it's like that is what happened to NSW!

One of my sisters couldn't drive out of her street for a few days. There was a foot bridge that was accessible, so when they saw the road might become closed, they put a car on the other side of the creek and were then able to walk to that car and drive to work.

My other sister was stuck for a day, together with thousands of other people, on the western side of the Hawksbury River. But that was a nice excuse to not go out.

We had the deluge here in sydney on Thursday and it took my kids two and a half hours to get to school on an otherwise 15 minute bus trip! The traffic was terrible. I went to The Craft Group and arrived 45 minutes late. There were about half the ladies there, others not able or willing to fight the weather and traffic.

I do feel of course very sad for those who have had things damaged by the water on thursday but the lovely thing about a Sydney rain storm is that sometimes when it is over, like on Thursday, the sun shines brightly and the sky is a deep blue and things feel like they have had a good clean.
