A new day, a new dawn, a new year....about time!

If my calculations are correct, we have all rolled into 2015 by now.
And what about 2014...what a year that was! Are any of you
as happy as me to see the backside of it? Phew!

A new day, a new dawn, a new year..
about time.

I have thought about my New Year's resolutions and
decided to put it all under one umbrella.
Follow that dream..simple enough?

One of them is to spend quality time with my
two favourite girls...
Miss Christine (L) and Miss Claire (R).

 We are off to Hong Kong for the weekend...
a little mother and daughter time before
Miss Christine heads back to Sydney and
Miss Claire and I join the rest of the gang in Japan.
We are starting the year with a bang.

In the meantime, for those of you who
have so kindly asked about Tahilla Farm.
We have lift off!
I have decided there is nothing better than
sunshine over a construction site.
I think the building crew would agree.

Hoping you all have a wonderful start to the New Year!

Jeanne xx

The Aussie coat hangers in the photo at the top of this post are
 a Christmas gift from Miss Christine for Tahilla Farm.
We just love them!

  13. I hope you're having a wonderful start to the year Jeanne, how you juggle all that traveling with a house under construction amazes me. I need to follow you around for a week and learn some tips. Or as my boys call it, learn how to 'chill' better. :)
