Melody update

A busy morning at grandmas house 
Doing puzzles
And looking after the lion 
Helping with th vacuuming 
Grandma finds it hard when I'm trying to help her but don't have my own vacuum cleaner 
So she bought me one. 

And after playing outside and getting muddy splashing in puddles 
A snack while we watch Dora the explora 
 Looking after grandma is hard work!

Balloon ride

A long time ago. Bec and I talked about how we wanted to take a ride in a balloon 
We decided that one day we would do it 
But life, as it does, got in the way and it got pushed back 
And eventually out of our minds I 

At the start of the year we decided we would do it for my fiftieth birthday 

Well eight months later we finally got up, up and away 
What a wonderful feeling floating through the sky
It's as close as we can get to feeling like a bird sailing on the currents 
There were three other balloons that took off at the same place and time as us 
We were in the Yarra valley and could see all ththe way to the city, and could see more balloons 
Sailing around Melbourne! 

Here we all are ready for take off. I think our multicoloured balloon was the prettiest! 
What a wonderful memory we now have 
Thanks so much Bec for making this dream a reality. No way would I have ever done something like this on my own 
If you ever get the chance I highly recommend it
It's not scary at all, but so very relaxing and inspiring 
Might have to do it again someday

Butterscotch self saucing pudding

Gotta love Pinterest 
When you have a hankering for something, but not sure what 
Get onto Pinterest and you will find something
Then mix and bake! 

It was very very yummy! 
Perfect for a cold Sunday afternoon

Current weather

Pretty much sums it up!
Good news we have another lamb!
Let's hope the poor things don't drown.
How's the weather in your part of the world?
Have a great weekend.

Same old, same old

I've been mia for a while now 
Nothing really going on 
The weather has been firghtful lately 
So I've just been home doing the same old thing 
Working on another baby blanket

Trying to stay warm 
And getting on with the homey stuff 
I'm slowly getting back into swimming three times a week,
Which has helped with the pain levels so that's good 
I hope your world has been calm and blissful like mine

These adorable twins were born yesterday morning
It was a miserable day
And of course that's when they decide to be born

Hubby took the pics just now and sent them to me 

He said he knew it would make me feel better 
Not having a good run health wise 
So yes. They made me smile
Hope your all doing well and these cuties bring a smile to your dial!

Better late I guess

The roses really needed cutting back 
But being away I didn't do them 
So today the sun was shining so I got out there and started hacking away 
I didn't go overboard. They have already started to bud
So I didn't want to risk killing them 
I know. Apparently you can't kill them. But I think I can!
Yup. I'm that good 

My hydrangeas. I've cut them back and i will fertilise and water them. As you can see they too have started to come back 

My lavender. They got a hair cut too. 
The hopefully I'll be rewarded with lots of blooms very soon 
Roll on spring!
See ya

How to feed four people with only two steaks  cut up meat, onions, carrots,and potatoes. 
Add water and spices
A tablespoon of tomato past 
And two cans cannallini beans 
Leave to cook in slow cooker

Might make me some bread to go with it 
Living out of the pantry and what we already have in the house
Trying to save money and use up what we have 
Wish me luck

Imbolc blessings

Also known as Candlemas and st Bridget's day in the north! 
Happy birthday also to all the horses
According to this poem if today is nice and sunny we still have six weeks of winter left
Right now it's very foggy
Usually that means a sunny day 
So not looking good for an early spring. 
But we live in hope!
See ya xxxx
