A magical 24 hours

My friend Nancy and I are both tragic potter heads. 
So of course we had to go and see
Harry Potter and the cursed child 

Playing in Melbourne, which is approximately and hours drive away, 
We decided we would take a train into the city and stay the night   Making it a mini break 
And allowing us to rest between the shows

We decided to stay at the Windsor Hotel which is only a hundred meters or so from the theatre 

So easy and convenient 

It’s a beautiful old hotel that was established in 1883 

It’s very posh. 
Way more grand than we are used too lol 
We had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and the meals were lovely 

Many famous people have stayed here.  Pretty sure we didn’t have the same rooms as they did lol 

This was our room 
It was spacious warm and comfortable 

The bathroom had all you needed 
It was clean and practical 

The small kitchen area for coffee and tea facilities 
We really didn’t use. Nancy had one cup of tea and that was it. 

And here is where the magic all happened 
There were two shows 
Part one started at 2.00 o’clock 
And part two started at 7.30 o’clock 
It was an amazing experience 
It is pricey and taking a family to see it would require saving
But oh my. It was worth every cent 

You will need to know the Harry Potter stories 
But if your a potter fan at all. 

I’m home now. 
Tired, sore and oh so happy

I’ve had this song stuck in my head since yesterday 

The fire has not been burning properly and I’ve been smoked out for over a week 
So I let it go out and called the chimney sweep 

Here he is with the industrial vacuum going. 
Trixie is keeping an eye on him. Quality control lol 
He said it was pretty blocked so it should burn right now 

Soon I’ll have it lit and I’ll be toasty warm again 
I’ve got the ducted heating on. But it’s just not the same 
Hope your toasty warm or staying cool. Depending on the weather your having

Sleepover at grandmas

It’s been a long time since melody had a sleep over 
So yesterday her mamma dropped her off and we had so much fun 
First there was building with circles

Very proud of their creation 

Watching wiggles with her doggie best friend 

Trying on grandmas glasses when the wiggles sing about wearing their seeing glasses lol 

We also feed the sheep and the cows 
And all the fur babies 
And finally sleeping with grandma in the spare big bed 

Breakfast this morning 
And then back home 
She missed her mummy and her sister 
We all had fun 
But grandma and grandpa are both tuckered out now lol 
What a blessing this little is girl is 
See ya xxx

Signs of spring

The sky is blue

The lawn is green 
And new growth 

Although it’s not predicted to last. Next week is another wet one apparently 
For today I’m going to enjoy the sunshine
Have a good weekend 
See ya xxx

My friend Nancy and I have been walking most Thursday mornings for a few weeks now 
We have been walking around the cranbourne botanical gardens, usually just the Australian gardens in the Centre 
Today we decided to do one of the walks around the main garden area 

These are some of the locals we saw. This little guy literally jump across our path 
Frightened the life out of me lol 

These two were just enjoying the sunshine 
Living the life 

And this little guy was just heading back to the water after a little wander 

This is how far we walked 
We are in training for a trip we plan to take next year. 
But more about that in another post 
See ya xxx

Girl Power

Today my wonderful daughter in law Nicole and her lovely sister Amanda 
Came over to help me put the trundle bed together. 
Nicole is a wiz with flat packs so she was the one in charge. 
Amanda and I were her helpers 

Here it is all finished 
Bed, trundle and drawers. 

During the week I’ll slowly bring all the toys back and organise the room 
I’ll buy some single bed sheets and half make up the beds 
And just slowly get it all sorted. 

Thanks so much girls
It was all done quickly and no heated discussions 

That’s girl power 
See ya xxx

Moving right along

And suddenly is August oh my where has the year gone
Even though I changed the calendar over and I knew it was August I 
Didn’t realise it properly until I heard one of the commentators on the football 
Say there were only three weeks left in the home and away season 
That shocked me 
The finals fly by and then it’s the grand final and then bang it’s Christmas 

Hubby is recovering well. He has been good and doing as the doctors told him 
Soon his sling will come off and he will start physio 

Im not going to the pool super early but I’m still getting there most days so that’s good I guess 

Meanwhile I’ve been going to go and buy a trundle bed for the girls room but life happened and I haven’t gotten there. 
So Friday I looked it up on the net and did a phone order. The bed was delivered on Saturday 
How easy is that. 


The boys will come over and help me put it together one day this week  
I’m sure it should be pretty easy. 

I’ll need to get sheets and a doona for them. But I’ve decided I’m going to make two of these butterfly blankets and use them on the beds 
I have 93 squares so far. I’ll need 99 for each blanket 
9 across and 11 down 

Do they look like butterflies?

So I still have a long way to go. Which is fine 
They are easy to do and I make a few each night watching the telly. 

I can feel spring coming. Still bitterly cold but it’s getting lighter earlier each morning 
And they days have lovely sunshine. 
All in all life is moving along nicely 

See ya xxx

The wheel turns
A promise that the long winter days will end
And life will renew itself 

Blessed be )0(
