A lovely day




Today the weather is sunny with a wonderful cool breeze 
It’s perfect for drying the linen! 
Nothing better in my book. Fresh sheets straight off the clothes line 
You can smell the sunshine
It’s days like today that make you happy and thankful 
I do hope it continues 
How’s the weather at your place? 
See ya xx

I’m still here

Sorry I’ve meet MIA lately 
There really is nothing major going on 
Unless you count going to see the doctor for a regular visit to get a refill on. A script, and having a conversation about 
How I might consider weight loss surgery! 
I was shocked!
I know I had slowly been getting those kilos back 
But to me, someone who needs surgery is very very obese and in danger of death
So I went back to swimming five days a week, increased from one hour to one and a half 
Back on the shakes, apparently I’m not eating enough. 
And in just over a month I’ve lost 7.5 kilos( 16.5 pounds)
Half way to getting back to my happy weight of 70 kilos

My Knitting and swim buddy is leaving me. She and her husband are retiring to Queensland 
So I’m pretty upset about that 
But it’s still in Australia so I can visit and she can come back down here and visit us 
I have made more friends at the pool so I still will have swim buddies. 

And baby girl is progressing nicely with her pregnancy 
She was sick at the start but she is glowing now

So as you can see. Lots happening 
But stuff that is only really interesting to me 
Hope your life is going well 
I do visit you all 
Have a great day 
See ya xxxx

Goodbye 2017



As the year draws to an end. I just want to say thank you to all my blogging friends 
I may not post as often as I used to 
Or comment as much
But I do visit you all often 
May your coming year be full of love, laughter, heath and wealth! 
See you all next year!

So that was Christmas

Christmas Day began with breakfast at our house for our kids  
Melody loved opening her gifts
It was a lovely way to start the day 
Then baby girl went to her in laws and wonderson and us headed off to my brother in laws for lunch 


I didn’t get picks but it was a lovely relaxed Christmas lunch. 
Then today, Boxing Day, we headed off to my parents for our family Christmas 
In the background you can see my sister and her daughter, my niece. And the little cutie is her son. My great nephew. Wyatt. He is only four months old 

And here is Melody with her dad and granddad photo bombing. 
She sure was enjoying her watermelon 
So that’s Christmas for this year. Lots of good food, presents. And laughter. 
I hope your Christmas was just the same. 
See ya xxx

Christmas has begun

With less than ten days to go. The Christmas season is well on it’s way 
First I had a Christmas party with the Knitting group. 
Sorry didn’t take pics 
We had food, presents and laughter. It was a lovely afternoon.  The only sad part was 
My friend Shirley is moving to Queensland early next year so unless she flys down it was her last party with us
We were all very sad, and me especially as she has been my swim buddy for all these years 
I’m going to really miss her 

And then Friday we had our work Christmas party 
The boys all finished work early and came over to the house 
Our baby girl, Stephanie, who works in the office also came over.
The partners and children all arrived and we had one very noisy loud fantastic time 
I didn’t get any pics this day either. But Leah did and I’m using one of hers 
Here are the girls all playing in the pool 
Charli in the pool, in blue, is the oldest and she was very good looking after the little girls 
Mia also in the pool is next in age then Melody standing at the top of the pic and the youngest is Harper. She will 
Turn one on the 22nd of this month
It’s amazing how times have change 
It really was a perfect day 
See ya xxx

Abundance

A friend of mine messaged me and asked if I wanted some pig face cuttings. 
I had been eyeing off her plants so I said a big yes please 
This is what I got!

So I got a very small portion and started planting them out. 
In pots 





And straight into the gardens. 
Lots straight into the garden! 
And I haven’t even made a dent. 
So if you want some. Come on down. I’ll pop the kettle on lol 
Good friends are priceless 
See ya xxx
