I was so happy to see that a letter I had written into The Examiner was published today. When they published the story about our garden being done, I was so disappointed that they didn't mention any of the people involved in doing it. The only reason we agreed to be in the paper was because we wanted those involved to be recognised. I'm over being in the newspaper at the moment and would much rather avoid it.
After Aaron's cousins Tracey and Jessi-Rose questioned The Examiner about it why they didn't mention those involved personally, they said it would be 'free advertising'. I'm sure that it's not at all the reason the people involved did the garden for us and mentioning 'The Landscape Industries Association of Tasmania' doesn't advertise any of the 16 landscapers involved at all anyway, but I felt that all involved should be recognised for their amazing kindness to me and the boys.
the blitz' including Tracey and Jessi-Rose's family for all their help with labouring, Jorden Beams for his amazing help concreting our paths, the three amazing young guys - Oliver, Brady and Josh for doing all the 'hard yakka' in digging out the trenches for the plumbing, and the Construction class at Kings Meadows High School for contributing the awesome cubby house for it.
I'm not sure if we can ever say thank you enough to everyone involved. We look at our garden and can't believe how blessed we are.
