I’m off to Perth tonight. I’ll attend my second ever funeral. The first was for my Grandma and this one is for my Nana.

My family and I visited Nana and Poppy on their wheat and sheep farm in rural south-western Western Australia a couple of times when we were small. I remember the landscape was dry and red and beautiful.

And I remember the beautiful WA wildflowers.

I moved house recently and I threw out A LOT of junk.
I’ve always been fairly sentimental and nostalgic and kept heaps of old letters from pen pals, christmas cards, birthday cards etc. Well I thought it was time to really go through all of this old ‘stuff’ and dispose of most of it.
This year happens to be my 20-year school reunion and it was so fun to go through my boxes of ‘junk’ and find wonderful memories like this Christmas card from my school friend Denny.
Denny and I have recently reconnected thanks to the wonders of Facebook!
Merry Christmas Denny! 🙂
