New Website

Well, I still don't know what happened to my website but as I had been thinking of making changes anyway this seemed like a good time to do it. I now have a new site at and have spent rather too much time today revamping the pages. It all looked perfect on the preview but somehow the layout has slipped around now it is online. More adjustments needed!

I noticed while on Maggies blog you too have given your catalogue over to the elements. I look forward to seeing what happens next!

Dear Jane,

Thank you for your nice note. I apologize for not writing sooner, but the area, in Western Australia, where my sister lives is very remote. No broadband or Y-FI connection there, so I had limited computer access.

I stayed 3 weeks in Australia but then changed my flight and cut my visit short and returned home because of hurricane Ike. My home was in the path of the hurricane, but 80 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico, so we did not have the water surges, but we did have 100 mph winds and lost power for five days. We lost several trees - one fell on our neighbour’s roof, but luckily did not cause any damage. Our roof will be checked for damage, as some tiles did come off. We were very lucky! Schools are still closed, but gradually the stores are opening again, even if there are limited supplies of meat, fish, milk and veggies – no one seems to have eggs. Now we have power it is so good to have a hot meals, A/C and internet connection.

The last four weeks have been unreal. While I was in Australia, my husband’s brother also passed away. Thank you again for your kind sentiments – they mean a lot at a time like this.
