It's raining again.

Hi everyone, yep it's raining yet again here in Cairns. Great for the gardens but I would enjoy sunshine for a few days so that I could get out and garden or burn all the palm fronds that are piling up the back. Plus things are just damp from the moisture in the air. Paper for the cards is just not the same at the moment. Doesn't cut as nicely and is always a little limp. I have been working on some making three more Memory Card game sets (Concentration) so that I can add them to my Etsy store. So have them to show to you soon.

It's not just the weather that is taking away my mojo at the moment. Last week I heard that a friend has pancreatic cancer she is only about 3-4 years older than me with two teenage kids. She has been operated on since then and they say they have it all by removing a little of the pancreas and all of her gallbladder. Now for chemo. The lady that told me is her best friend and sadly she lost her husband (50ish) this time last year to cancer. So I am very worried about her too. There are other people that I know that have passed because of cancer in this last month. My great friends Dad and a fellow that works with my husband and we had gotten to know him and his wife. On a positive note I plan on attending and fundraising for the Cairns Relay for Life this year to help raise funds for Cancer. My daughter has done it the last two years.

What to do today. I think we might just show our visitor the local Mulgrave Museum all about the sugar history in the area and head off to the new patisserie in town. Have a great weekend everyone.


  1. Merry, I would like to support your fundraising efforts. Could you send me an email with your relay for life team details.
    On a lighter note, your post title has me singing 'it's raining again' by Supertramp - one of my favourite bands!
    take care,
