Wagga Wagga Rural Referral Hospital Maternity Ward had a project I could not refuse. They are the recipients of a Community Princess Grant to buy mini fridges for patients’ rooms, to store breastmilk and snacks. What a perfect idea.
Another Community Princess Grant was awarded this month. What wonderful work is done by this very worthy beneficiary. Country Hope will use this grant to provide support to families with children diagnosed with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
Knitting kept me warm and busy this month, it is so good to be able to create with your hands, especially when we are restricted and it has been so cold.
I took my first ever solo car trip this month. Driving from Wagga to Goulburn, Port Macquarie and finally Gladstone, catching up with friends and family on the way. I loved riding the camel on the beach, what a perfect way to spend a few peaceful hours.
A very full month of family, work and Community Princess grants.
Until next time, keep well.

I was honoured to be invited to a Citizenship Ceremony in July.
As I wrote in my Feel Good Friday post, Today is the day that I have been looking forward to for months! This afternoon, I am lucky enough to be attending not one but TWO Citizenship Ceremonies It is such an honour to be able to represent Wagga Wagga and welcome so many new people into our wonderful community. I will not be able to wipe this smile off my face all day!
My Fiancé and I took some time away and headed to the snow during July. We have committed to spend locally and were happy to be able to give something back to the communities ravaged by fires earlier this year, while having a fun and relaxing break.
My housemates and I really felt the full brunt of COVID19 restrictions this month, with one of us having a test for the virus after not feeling too well. The resulted in a complete lockdown of the household while we waited for results to come in, fortunately all was ok, however it was certainly a wake-up call. We all need to remember, if in doubt head in for a test, then fully isolate the household until given the all clear.
I hope you are all keeping well.
All My Love
