WHOOPS LOST ALL MY BLOG ENTRIES!!

My daughter is always telling me "Be more confident and just try things out on the computer....not be so scared of it......you cant do anything wrong". Well, I did and consequently all my blogs were errased along with the entire heading of blogs!!! Oh well, I will just have to write some more.Last week my daughter and son-in-law shifted house, from Railton to Staverton. Such a beautiful area, certainly kissed with the WOW stick. It can get quite cold, even snow. Staverton is close to Moina and Cradle Mountain after all. I started helping with the shift last Thursday, and should have stayed the night instead of driving back to Hawley Beach, only to return the next day. The moving truck was involved Friday also, so it was a huge day. Thinking it wouldnt be much more, my husband came with me Saturday, and worked equally as constantly. Day turned into night, and more to do, so we decided to stay the night, and get a good start on Sunday. Sunday came and went, and still there will be more to do....oh the horrors of moving house! Actually it wasnt all bad, nice to be around family and to be able to help out. Natalie and Sean helped us moving into our house in Hawley Beach nearly three years ago. So good to be able to return the favour. I love it in Hawley, love the beach and the wonderful walks you can do along the beachside. We also love that it is like a micro climate here, alway warmer than anywhere else. Even Devonport is alway a few degrees colder than here. Poor Frank leaves here to go to Ulverstone to work, and tells me how cold it is......and I tell him how lovely and sunny and warm it is in Hawley.....not happy Jan!! The climate here in Hawley Beach is wonderful for growing our vegies for our Bed and Breakfast and for us. I have managed to grow lettuce and rocket right through the winter with no problems at all. Indeed, I am now germinating seeds in a type of glass house, which are thriving. As I said I love it here in Hawley Beach, but if it werent so cold in Sheffield and Staverton areas, I would live there. It is just sooooo beautiful, I wish I could paint, and do it justice. Speaking of which, Frank has lined my studio for me to renew my pottery tallents. Once I have the electricity on, I can start throwing pots, designing them then getting them fired. Because of the constant sight of beauty surrounding you, I think there is a large amount of artistic people in Tassie. Perhaps it rubs off!!
