A change in the weather
A fair bit of Australia is finally taking a breath of moist air. We have had over 3 inches fall here in the last few days, of course it isn't quite the season for a proper break like this but it's so lovely to hear and fabulous for my now dried up garden. Still quite muggy so it may not even be finished.
My little darlings enjoying the Gratitudes and School holiday sleep-ins, but only 10 days to go!
When my girl and I were in Warrnambool last week we did the School shoe thing and to congratulate ourselves on an easy fitting and good choices we second hand book shopped before going for coffee. I found the latest Bastion club historical romance by Stephanie Laurens, but my girl found this great quilt mystery, right at her level! They find this quilt in the old house and it's an exact replica of the house with a secret to solving the mystery! How great is that? She is right into it and loving it-I can't wait for my turn.
We then coffeed and I bought some great fridge magnets, they are hard to read i know, but you can get the drift. I particularly like the clean house is a sign of a wasted life!
I went back to the beach to swap her for her brother who wanted to replace a broken toy with some savings and we spotted this enormous echidna in the scrub next to the main beach path. He just wouldn't quite smile but I thought he was worth a post anyway, we were all very excited as you are more likely to glimpse these shy creatures dead by the road.
Last picture is my kids re-enacting the old Goodies episode of Kitten Kong with my very treasured Anne of Green Gables Dollhouse, but they had fun! If the Goodies weren't big in the U.S and you like English humour, find these on DVD, BRILLIANT!
Now, some housekeeping. I have finally managed to setup a hotmail email account so I am fully contactable for all of those who have tried and failed. Thanks for all the feedback re: fabric, that was great. There is a 15 pound box on it's way from Fat quarter quilts so I should be right for a week or two!!!
Also, do I really want to change to Beta, will it make my life easier or harder-comments please!!
And does having 3500 photos on your computer slow it down, someone suggested this to me, that they need sorting and saving to disc. It sounds like a job this tech-illiterate will hate! Why can't I just sew and blog and not have to deal with "stuff!!"
Have a good day, Tracey
