Ok so it is looking very much like only one post a week these days,
so here I go.
Last weekend was all about being outside enjoying some very nice weather indeed. There was plenty of mooching around home as we had the long weekend to fill. My big Idesia Trees are loosing their leaves and the last of the berries are being devoured by the bird life. What a grand way to spend your life, high up in a tree feasting on berries. I want to be a bird!!
Big spent a lot part of the weekend coming and going out the front of our place. He has discovered the garden that dear old Tex used to frequent, best I trim the garden around Tex's chair so Big can have some sleepy moments on it.
I discovered Manderines on our tree, a Monarch spreading its beautiful wings in the sunshine and of course Big looking gorgeous on the neighbours fence, his favourite outside spot.
George Grey and Wayne Black (yes I had his name wrong, but really a kitten called Wayne??) are doing their very best to out cute the previous kittens. They love being wrapped and cuddled, mummies little babies!!!
Sue W and I decided to have a SuesDay out on Thursday this week. I made a jacket out of a Russian Shawl I had and I was so warm all day. Did I mention the sun has disappeared, and been replaced with the wet stuff. Well it is supposed to be Winter so it is to be expected, mind you it hasn't been that cold.
The op shops turned up trumps for me!!
Thursday and today I found lots of lovely things.
Sue W found the Digby Law's book for me and only $1.50 at the Salvo. We discovered a new Op shop raising money for an animal shelter and were pleasantly surprised at the stock. Only been open for three days so very new, I got the travel Backgammon and the Delft Cow creamer jug. The cat sign above I didn't buy but I do like the saying, that was at Habitat, $2 was a tad much.
SPOTS glorious SPOTS!!!
All of these came from the op shops and Trade Me, and I am in SPOT heaven!!
I do not have an 18 month old to wear this, our local rugby teams support jersey but one day I might so at $8 I had to bring it home. No pressure on the Heir and the Spare!!!
What are they all looking at you may well ask? The spare was making his lunch last night (for work today) and I came upon this line up! Fans? Moral supporters? Or plain old scroungers? Believe me they were focused on what was happening on the bench, not me taking photos!!
On this wet Friday I dressed myself in RED and BLACK, SPOTS and STRIPES!!
The weekend is here for me, and I have my fingers and toes crossed for the return of the sunshine so some more time can be spent outside among the life in the garden. But whatever the weather brings there is always something to do.
