JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

A lunch with friends.

We had the lovely experience of meeting new friends on the weekend.  Our good friends from Brisbane,  Jack and Kim, asked us some time ago if we would mind them bringing Kim's Aunty and her partner for a visit.
It is a lovely story.  Kim's aunt was adopted at birth and only last year, after a search by the Aunt, did they all finally get to know each other.  The aunty and her partner still live in the UK but decided to come to Australia this year to meet all the new family.
We of course welcomed them into our home and they were terribly excited when Philip offered to take them for a drive around our place to show them the cattle.  They had never really been up close to cattle before so it was all a new experience for them.
We had a lovely long lunch, telling yarns over a glass or two of wine.  We have been invited to stay with the Aunty if and when we get back to the UK and we will most definitely take them up on the offer.  We really enjoyed their company.
