Luke and Enid. 8th December, 1945.
After our wedding we went back to stay at Warrah Creek. Arthur and Audrey were there too as they were building a small house on "Oakhaven" and Harold was going to marry Amy Davidson soon. They were married in Willow Tree
about 6 months later. Sheila and Jack Goodworth were married in the Warrah Creek church the next year.
My move to "Daffodil" was a complete change to anything I had ever experienced. No phone, no electric
lights, no car, no vehicle except a bike each. Arthur gave Luke the loan of a Model T Ford that he had up on blocks during the war. It was wonderful. We were 18 miles from Scone, had a 6 day a week mail service, 2 neighbours within sight and I couldn’t
ride a horse. I could sit on one. I never did become a good rider even though we did a lot of riding about the place and over the range to Warrah Creek to go to dances etc. Luke soon got me a cattle pup which was a great comfort to me. During our years at
"Daffodil” we had 3 children. Our first daughter Lynette was born in Scone 1 September, 1947, stillborn and is buried in Scone. Then along came Rhodney 13 June 1949 and then Julie 19 December 1951. Luke had a serious illness, starting June 1951. He was
in hospital for 5 months ………. was able to leave hospital a week before Julie was born.
After Luke's recovery, Harold and Amy decided to leave Warrah Creek so we hoped to be able
to buy his property. We bought "Trillowee" and moved there for shearing in July 1952. Luke employed a workman for "Daffodil" and kept it for a number of years.
