Long time between posts

It's been a while since the last post.  I constantly have ideas about what to post on but then find I lack the time to post and once I do sit down, I've forgotten what I was going to post about!

Anyway this one is fairly mundane and just an update on our movements.  Basically we're moving house!  Will, myself and Sprocket are moving down to Lugarno.  We have managed to secure a waterview house for rent -- and the biggest bonus (other than the view!!) is that it should fit all our stuff.  It even has an underhouse storage area and workshop.  Most of this we didn't even realise when we went for the open for inspection as there were about 15 groups of people looking at the same time we were, so it was fairly hectic.  I'm actually quite surprised we got the house in retrospect as apparently there were other people who even offered more than the rent price.  The week we applied we also had two others we had applied for.  Both of those were higher on our preference list.  Strangely enough maybe it's just psychological but I feel we got the best choice for us in the long run.

The reason we are moving in a bit of a rush is that my mother has been recently diagnose with Cancer :(  It's non Hodgkins Lymphoma.  She's been going through Chemo and has done two sessions now.  It's pretty terrible to see her go through this and I can only imagine her pain and discomfort.

One thing I've been reading up recently is on herbal solutions.  Even if it's preventative I think it's worthwhile taking as I'd hate to have to see anyone else I know go through what my mum is going through now.  I've been reading on Sonya's blog about Dogs and Herbs.  And from there I followed a link to read about Isabell Shiperd and I'm now looking into getting a couple of her books and a heap of herbs!
