My DD2 and her family are now moved into their new home ,still a little bit of unpacking to do ,and they are so excited and happy to be in their new home.
Yesterday moving day was the 30th of Jan and it was also the day our daughter Nicky passed away 36 yrs ago she would have just turned 38 on the 11th of January,we always wonder how things would be if she was still with us.
Hope you all have a good weekend,i am stiff and sore so i am having a slack weekend,lol.

Moving Day

 First off i wanted to show you the pretty roses from our garden,they look gorgeous on the table runner that sweet Peg made for me.
 Well its moving day for my DD2 and her family,they are moving out of their old house straight into their new home,so i told her not to worry about food that i would have food for the helpers tomorrow and food for them over the weekend so that they can get their new home into order.
I baked 2 apple pies,2 chicken & vegie pies,we are keeping one of each,lol,so i dont have to do anymore cooking myself for the weekend.
I also made chicken sausage rolls,sausage rolls,peanut butter,coleslaw,chai & chocolate cup cakes,2 lots of jam drops,i am all cooked out now though,lol,thank goodness for the thermomix.

 This is their new home and everyone is so excited,i am in charge of cleaning the new house and watching baby Murphy,while the others are moving stuff and cleaning their old home up.
The oven is filthy so thats my first job for the day so it will be clean when i heat up the lunch for everyone.
I hope they have a lot of happiness and fun in their new home.
So a busy day for us all,take care and i hope you all have a wonderful day
