Too long between posts!

Life.Has.Been.Busy.  Let's see ...
... nearly four weeks with "the rat" as P calls her, she has grown considerably... and the other cat Does.Not.Want.Her.Here.  Lots of bad language!

....the builders are off-site as from Friday last  
...the gates are installed, only a two week wait whilst they fixed the size, were too big - and the maker did the measuring!   Electric fence to be extended soon.
... Guild AGM over two weeks ago (my first financial report presented!) and over 200 members renewed or joined!   ...same day as our wedding anniverary... came home to these beautiful proteas:

... formally handed over the Guild web-site to the new webmaster, sad but relieved that someone else is in charge!   For the other geeks reading this, it's now being created with Serif WebPlus X6 instead of Joomla!  We both had to learn from scratch!
.... made blocks for the May Lotto...

... Creative Quilters monthly meeting in which four of us each did a detailed presentation to a quarter of the group on how to make 8-in-one half square triangles - self-imposed teaching practice for...
...the SAGQ-Teachers Accreditation Course, which we are now one third of the way through, and yay!  very happy with the marks of my first 5 assignments.  And in fact, still on a high about that!  Need to seriously start on the next section!
.... daughter C now home after 6/7 weeks working at Afrika Burn - loads of laundry, two washes for each load, to get the ingrained Karoo sand out!  She had a great time, lost weight and got a great tan.
....son M is leaving for London tomorrow night, packing, sorting, one-way ticket... it's the right time for him to go and have the experience of not living at home.

....and the best is still to come, a weekend away with 23 other quilters at tranquil Goedgedacht, only 2 days to go!  Two solid days of sewing and laughter!  Have the UFO projects picked out, plenty of piecing.
