A NEW GRANDCHILD FOR PETER




Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.
Philippians 4:6 (The Message.)

 Peter has a 6th grandchild - a 5th granddaughter. Lucy



I don't usually put pictures of the grandchildren on my blog, but it is a bit hard to see much of little Lucy here. She is beautiful.


My daughter Jade has just completed an exhibition at Gallery 9, Darlinghurst. Jade makes strange creatures and sculptures fabrics she dyes.

This is one she sold. It is about a metre long.






Here are a few more pieces in her exhibition.












I have begun fixing up Jade's old room. She left 18 years ago and it had largely been a storage room. But I have decided to have it as on office so I don't have papers all over the place for my tutoring. I have a couple of comfortable chairs in there as well.

These chairs had been sitting in my garage for a while (long story) waiting to go onto Gumtree and I decided to use them in my office.

I bought some cheap soft blankets from Aldi for $10 each and threw them over the chairs.


The TV is sitting on an old sewing table that belonged to my grandmother. I picked the two grey chairs up off a rubbish pile. Rhiannon and I sanded them back and painted them.



Now I need to do some decorating.



Our church just paid off a $5m debt, so there was a week of celebrations.




And I will finish here with some lovely eucalyptus leaves from my garden.
