Congratulations Lyndell and Andy

Lyndell and Andy have the allotment next to mine at Beelarong Community Farm.  Congratulations to you both on the birth of baby Rosalyn. Can’t wait to meet her.

Lyndell is a very talented ‘crafty’ person – you can catch up with her on her blog Show us Your Crafty Bits. She makes cute stuff for babies and little girls.

We are rather lucky that a number of mothers bring their babies and toddlers along to the farm on a Wednesday morning to work in the community garden. It’s wonderful to have these youngsters wondering around and enjoying the fresh air.

I am delighted to have a new allotment neighbour, Victoria and her little boy took on the plot right next to mine.

It’s not just vegetables we are growing at the farm!

      We are creating a community Fran, this reminds me of a friend of mine who after the birth of his first child was so euphoric he said “I don’t need friends any more, I can make my own!”. (Don’t know what his wife thought – football team?)

        Lol…Community is a wonderful thing Jean…you learn more from a group of unrelated people (community) than you will EVER learn from your family 🙂 You are up as early as I am! I am getting ready for daylight savings next week…I REFUSE to be a zombie because someone forced me to get up early…I CHOOSE to get up early and be ready when the time comes 😉

    What a beautiful blog your neighbour has! Although I am WAY past babies, there are other wonderful things on the blog that I could make as well as enjoying your friends wonderful lyrical writing tinged with humour. Thank you for introducing me to another wonderful blog Jean, you are proving invaluable! 😉

      Thank you for your kind words Fran. Lyndell and Andy are a lovely young couple and I’m delighted to have them as my allotment ‘neighbours’. When I took on my plot two years ago I had no idea how my life would open up in a delightful way.

        I agree Jean…My blog has done the same thing for me and I am hoping to find a way to forge a sense of community in our own little hamlet of Sidmouth here on the river. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to share our excesses and the spoils of life living on the river with our neighbours and surrounding community? Resiliance is important and we can all do our bit 🙂

    I love this time of the morning Fran. I wake up with the sunrise and It was light at 5:30am today, I’ve already put a load of washing on the line. The flip side of course is that friends know if they phone after 7:30pm I’ll be useless. Your hamlet sounds lovely beside the river, good luck with your community building.
