A little porch is being constructed to break the weather right at my back door - not quite finished yet, but well on the way. In the mean time I am enjoying the Spring blossom each day
As the evenings are beginning to extend, I am getting time for a walk around the garden after work, and being rewarded with many pleasures.
The Ginger Kitten is growing big and cheeky. Loves playing outside and gets into EVERYTHING! Can't help loving him though . . .
. . . and my baby boy returned from a whole term on King Island for his Year 9 Experience. His sister was so pleased to see him - me too of course. We didn't speak to each other for 9 weeks, just corresponded by letter. I will treasure those letters.
Today is Miss Flowergarden's 18th Birthday. It's hard to believe I have children that age as I still feel like I'm young like that. She will be finished school next term and heading on to her next chapter. Big Cal who is 20 is coming to the end of his uni at the end of this year. Changes afoot for all.
I had alovelytime out in my garden yesterday. It was perfect Spring weather. With a little over a week to go of Winter here, it's getting jolly exciting with all the bulbs popping their heads up, and tiny leaf buds on the trees. Always a wonder after the long cold months of Winter.
I had cause to celebrate recently with 50 good reasons
I threw caution to the wind and had a party
It was great fun and quite liberating!
I have been quiet these Winter months, but certainly not idle.
I've been learning about my knitting machine with a scarf above for my sister.
I've crocheted Attic 24's Stripy Blanket - started at the start of Autumn and finished first month into Winter = 4 months of lovely work. It's a beautiful blanket and so warm to snuggle under on Winter nights.
I've kept my eye on these lovely neighbours. The small one is now walking and chasing my pussy cats around!
A spot of Winter gardening of course. Still not finished pruning the roses yet.
A trip to the Melbourne Zoo with friends during the School Holidays. I found the most fascinating bit was when a diver went into the tank to clean the glass.
The bubbles were AMAZING!
I liked this elephant too.
I knitted some new mittens on my machine. Even used the Ribber, and made a pattern. Very Fancy - as you can see I was proud of myself.
So you see, I've been busy, but just not blogging - feeling happy with life but forgetting to share - sorry!
