1st Communion

Not everything that I will be posting on here will be about only the farm.  Farmers personal and private lives are tightly intermingled with farm business.  We live, eat, breath, sleep the farm.

So with that in mind, I will also be posting a little bit about family.  Mainly celebrations, achievements, silly stuff….that sort of thing.

A couple of weeks ago, Biddy made her first communion and confirmation (here in the Ballarat diocese they celebrate both these sacrements at the same mass).  I have to admit not telling her that she had a choice to wear a veil or not; I just said that she was wearing one (like her maternal line before her!).  Biddy is a girl with simple means when it comes to clothes, so I knew that getting her a dress was going to be no easy task.  So we went with making one instead.  And I’m proud to say, I made it myself.  And the veil too!!!

It was a lovely mass, Biddy looked beautiful (she does anyway) and she received lots of beautiful gifts to always remember the day by.
