Home for the weekend.....................


Dearest Mom and Dad
So, I just took a photo of some leeks to make you jealous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 
Its soooooo good having Gareth and Button home - that means lots of food and long chats round the table - reminds me of my childhood.

Gareth loves my French toast with bacon and maple syrup - I did not have any bananas to add.

 
Squash seems to be in control of the remote............................

 
Look, I am channelling your garden............

 
The weather on Saturday was not good - rainy...........

Gareth and Squash


They never stop chatting and laughing..................

 
Rainy weather meant card games and junk food................

 
My favourite wine at the moment.............

 
Rack of lamb, leeks etc............

 
When the sun came out ...........................

A nice weekend.............................

Dearest Mom and Dad
Now that Ella is at school I do not get to see her as much. She was a great help setting the table for dinner on Saturday..........................


We did get to make a "puppet".............................

 
I am very excited - Gareth and Button will be home on Thursday - making up the beds etc. Gareth's cushion we bought looks good......................

 
Still working on the crazy - it has taken me months........................

 
We like going to the Maroochy river for afternoon tea - its lovely and cool..............

 
When I bought the thermos out it sent George into frenzy - for some unknown reason he is petrified of it. Remember when the new dishwasher freaked him out ???????? Odd dog!!

Button turned 24!!!

Dearest Mom and Dad
Sorry about the lack of blogging - nothing much going on here.
Kan jy dit glooi - Button turned 24 - remember when she was that fat FAT baby.

Still a whole lot of nonsense going on with the government - I am seriously over it all.

 
I have the t-shirt but I have yet to walk the walk.  Debs and I are into serious training and fundraising. I think the training is going to be the easy part of this little "journey".

 
Interesting stat - considering that there are only 22 million people in OZ.

I counted my hexies for my ongoing scrap quilt - I still have 450 more hexie flowers to go!! Help me,help me! Only joking - I LOVE covering hexies!!

All my love

Home again, home again, jiggerty jig....

Dearest Mom and Dad
Well, after catching flu from SOMEONE on this jam packed flight back to Sydney, I am slowly getting back to life in Oz.............

There are a few changes that have been made in the home............hmmm, me thinks someone had WAY to much time on their hands. I will follow your advise and be diplomatic about getting the furniture back to their usual places. Like the TV setup for example???!!!

Squash sulked for the first two days I was back....................

George, on the other hand, was just happy I was back!

I am enjoying the few beaded bits I bought in SA.

Back to the Patchwork Angel and all the lovely people there......
And back to some crazy - listening to Bread - reminds me of Carol.

Missing you already!!!!!!
