Well hello, yes it's been nearly a week since I last blogged. Sounds like a confession, but I am here now. Where to start? Let's see.
These wall clocks are some of her new things she has made of late.
I will admit that I am in love with the Onesie Bunny. The hole at the back of it's head is for a flower to sit. Super cute.
I didn't take a photo of what I have done to the Phat boy but I am hoping he is going to look as good as I imagine. I called him Bernard, Bernie for short, he is a down on his luck ex car sales man. You will see him when he is all finished, all cooked and colourful!!
This made it's way home with me tho'.
On Monday I had a catch up on the washing at home kind of morning and then went out to buy some undies. Knickers, panties, daks, gruds, you know what I mean. I am seriously considering cutting a pattern of a pair of old favourites and making my own. I like comfort, none of that bum floss for me, I guess I am what my teenage self would have called Nana pants these days!! Have any of you ever made your own undies? If so how successful was it?
With the weather being warmer of late I have to remember to have plenty of bowls of water for all the animals. We have at least four spots outside where there are big bowls for them all.
My Snowball shrub is loaded in big balls of white puff!
Some of my garden art that has come via Dawn over the years needed to be moved in the garden so it was more visible. The house is one of her early ones, the face was a one off, and the castle has a bowl to go with it that used to be full of plants. The bowl is now one of those water bowls I mentioned.
Oh I do love my little boys!
My first Sweat Pea!
TOF dug over the box garden for me so I have planted a row of lettuces. Summer is all about the salad round here.
When this grows up it is going to be a Strawberry!
Tuesday was a busy day at work and by the time I got home I just sat outside enjoying the fresh air and sunshine, and the peace and quiet of the garden.
It didn't take long for the girls to join me.
Soon the rest of the sweet peas and the poppies will be all blooming there little bums off for me!
Water, don't forget the water bowls!
Today I wore the most pretty top that I found at one of the op shops. It is an expensive brand but it is so static, no wonder it was donated to charity. I persevered because the colours are so lovely, maybe a different tunic under it next time might fix the static problem.
I picked flowers for inside on the left and flowers for my reception counter on the right. All from my garden and you can't even see where I have taken them from. How gorgeous are bunches of freshly picked flowers from your own garden.
See how pretty the colours are.
Wednesday is Airport day for me at work and our Airport is in the country. This is the view at one of the intersections when heading back to work. I enjoy my drive out to the Airport each week, so much to look at on the drive out and back. (Cows, lots of cows!)
After work today I decided to go over to Hamilton East and visit a couple of the op shops over that way. I found lots of goodies in the Hospice shop and spent a total of $25 on all of this, above and below.
The sheepskin rug was only $6 which is so cheap as most places are trying to get top buck for these. Oscar was impressed. I went to the Salvo shop but found nothing to buy, only a Pirate with his dog to have a chat to!! So wish I had taken a photo for you all, very Captain Sparrow he was and very friendly. Most people were smirking behind their hands, not me, I bowled on over and struck up a conversation about his dog. I do like the odd bods in the world.
I love the sheepskin Mum,
it is for me aye?
Before I go I have a story, about a month ago Mrs Wickam my Grey chicken went missing. She had taken to sleeping in a tree and I suspected she had gone over the fence into the school behind our house. Well guess what??
TOF had some school kids tell him she was in the school last Friday so he went and caught her and bought her home. Never thought we would see her again, and she seems pretty happy to be home. You would think after her months vacay in the school she would look happier!!
