Wow, I know they keep telling us, but when it hits that close it really makes it real :(
So listen to the ads, cover up and wear that sun screen!!!

Paula was one of my original Rally girls - Every Girls Rally, that is - a bit like Girl Guides but run by the church, I was a Rally girl that went onto to be a Leader right up until my married family life got too busy. I haven't seen or heard of Paula for years, but back then she was an incredibly gutsy determined little girl. When we played games, she often won, and if she didn't she always gave it 110% to make sure she was just like everyone else.
So no, I wasn't surprised to hear her name - but happy to hear that that little girl really had come along way, just like I expected her to. Congratulations Paula!

We got woken this morning by the boy next door knocking on our door to ask if we'd see our backyard!
Next door neighbour's tree uprooted ...
and landed on our garage -
and our outdoor furniture (one table broken) knocked around, AND our back fence blown right down -
We don't know for sure if it was a twister, but we're pretty certain it was - you can actually see the path it has travelled, our neighbours in front of the neigbours with the tree, didn't have any damage at all - it looks like it landed on the road in front of us, raced down the side of our house, and then turned and ran down the fence line, there are a few fences looking down that way that have been damaged.
Pretty scary stuff - I'm glad I didn't realise what it was when it actually hit!

... and because I was taking photos this morning to try and do something for my Mother and MIL for Mother's Day this Sunday - here is an updated picture of the kids ... yep, they've grown!!
Now, if I'm really good ... I'll try and update my stitching once a week or so, we'll see - no promises!
