I am here, I am still alive.
Oh my……..well what can I say I have been busy, tired, gardening, working (working, working) sleeping and still feeling tired….oh well. You girls know what I am talking about.
We have had a long weekend here, yesterday (Monday) was ‘Labour Day’ and I don’t work on a Tuesday, so 5 days off, blisssssssssss. I’ve not been idle tho’ spent two days in the garden and it is looking very bare without all the GI-normous weeds, went and bought a few plants to fill in a few spots, potted up some pots with a bit of color, will look good in a month, and I feel happy.
It was my granddaughter’s 5th birthday yesterday….happy birthday beautiful girl. We had a little afternoon tea without a cake as she had been to a birthday party on Saturday and she had her Fairy party Sunday, so mum and dad said ‘No more cake’ I wasn’t about to argue. We sang happy birthday just after she opened all her pressies. She didn’t go without tho’ as great nana made scones with jam and cream, mmmmmm, she loves scones with jam and cream……she loves cheese and biscuits more, she can eat her way through a chunk of brie with the best of them.
With Great Pop, she asked him to color in with her, then she walked off and left him as she wanted to play with the Play Doh, dear dad he just kept coloring until he had finished. He is 86 yrs old, bless him, can hardly see as he has Macular disease. Anabelle said last night after he had gone home ‘Great Pop is funny’ she loves him so much, they giggle and chatter away together (that is my ex hubby and our son Paul, Anabelle’s daddy in the background)
I started a blanket for my dad, he has supported a football team here called ‘Sydney Swans’ they used to be called ‘South Melbourne Swans’ but they moved into New South Wales from Victoria, hence the name change, but dad still supports them, has done for almost 80 years!!!! Their colors are Red and White, so am crocheting up a Red and off White blanket, just in stripes, he will love it I know.
I have still been working on my ripple, it is growing ever so slowly, but I am more than half way finished, I pick it up when I want to crochet without thinking.
The weather had been so ‘out of season’ here this summer, but the last week has been beautiful weather, warm, not hot, just right for working in the garden, to have the windows and doors open letting in a sweet little breeze, this is my kind of weather.
I have been awarded the Liebster and Versatile blogger awards, too long ago now for my memory to remember who gave them to me, I feel awful that I cannot remember and even worse that I didn’t write it down somewhere, well I was going to blog about them straight away wasn’t I but then I got V busy…………. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, it means a LOT to me.
envy love that some of you bloggy girls are meeting each other, so wish I could be there and meet you too.
Well my lovelies the day is calling and I have a bit to do before work tomorrow, I am also off for a walk with my friend tonight around an old quarrie, should take my camera and take some photos for you.
Till then, take care…hugs
