No crafting for me at the moment.
This week we are picking grapes at Ostler Vineyard, about four minutes drive up the road from our house.
Each year Ostler advertise for volunteer pickers, the wages that these volunteers would make go to the Spinal Trust, based in Christchurch ,where is it dived out to communities to assist with helping paraplegics get back into, and around their community.
Last year Duntroon received funds to assist with making the Squash Courts wheelchair accessible. This is to enable Andrew to be a part of the squash community, which was a big part of his life pre injury. Sure, he cannot play squash, but he can still socialise, attend meetings (he is club captain) and watch our three children play.
This trust has helped us, so it is really nice to be able to give something back.
Have to say that the weather is just gorgeous, the company is warm and friendly and its great to be out in the fresh country air, I am even gaining a sun tan!!
Take a look at me after todays work, all those nets in the background are covering vines that are yet to be picked...Yikes... another big day ahead tomorrow!
Just want to say thankyou to those of you who have been kind enough to take the time to leave a comment or sign my guest book. Always get a buzz out of knowing people have been here for a wee look! THANK YOU!!
