A bit of sewing and getting ready

Hey has anyone tried these noodles?? Bought them the other week and wonder what they will be like....definitely low carb so will be interesting...we have been getting ourselves ready for the up coming trip but also catching up on other things ☺

made these little pants for Cooper, hope they fit lol 

and these cute ones for April, they are made from warm fuzzy fleece.....needed here at the moment 

my label which really is to just show which is the back.....

Woody is getting ready and excited about our future trip 😁😁😁

we have had hideous weather with lots of rain, much needed but oh boy cold

made us some nice chicken/cheese stuffed avocado for lunch the other day 

and on with watching "call the Midwife" and my hooking tomorrow Saturday 29th August we have most of the family coming for a bbq type lunch and at this time of year "The Snow Train" I am a bit happy lol 

last year it was like this!!!! 😖😖😖 freezing with lots of hail too lol 

But it can be worth seeing tomorrow they are saying NO rain and warmer day of at least 20 Celsius so sounds good, wish us luck lol

Fun with April

Hello again and to this cute little lady.....she came to stay 2 nights at our home and was very happy to see Woody in the morning.....Daddy dropped her off late the first night Tuesday 18th July, so she did not even get to see us, just straight to bed lol 

She woke at 5.30am so looking a bit rugged pic of me, not required at all lol 

after breakfast she had a lovely time investigating all over our back garden area 

lots of pointing and running ♥

we took her on our daily walk to the post office all rugged up ☺

she loved sitting in the little seat and eating banana......the high chair is now at our city pad

after her evening bath she enjoyed checking out the dishwasher lol 

her hair all nicely brushed and playing with an old sock puppet I made donkey years ago ☺

her in bed us relaxing watching "Offspring"

next morning Thursday she woke at 7 so we all looked a lot better and able to have a selfie lol 

we had more fun during the day and when her arvo sleep was due we drove her back home.....the trip is just over 1hr 30min so a good time to nap ☺♥

we then headed to our city pad as we had already planned to have April on the back to catching up on "Outlander" as many of you know we are going back to Scotland and looking forward to more lovely castle checking 

on Saturday 21st July we were expecting April and had the high chair setup for a great view to the helicopters 

and here she is loving being back in the city 

gorgeous face and I am not very biased lol 

her saying "bye bye" after Uncle Rex left after a quick drop in......

she really enjoyed the view ☺☺

it was a good day 

that night we went on with "Outlander" with her sleeping very well in other bedroom 

on Sunday she slept till 7 and was full of beans lol 

we took her on a morning city walk, going on 2 trams 

after the 1st tram she enjoyed the harbour view 

and checking out "The Melbourne Eye" 

one of those massive ferris wheel, we have not been on yet......

and showed here a mini amuse park which maybe her Mum and Dad may take her too one day ☺☺

yes just Granny and Grandpa 

back on another tram which ended up PACKED.......but we managed to get off 

and just look how happy she was out and about with Woody ♥
after her day nap we then drove her back home

and oh boy the weather changed and the rain was heavy for our trip back to home..........

we relaxed last night with a "David Attenborough" gorilla special....

and today of course I am doing this post and here is the other top I made last week before April came.... and very happy with another top which will be handy on our is cold here and our first place to tour is Budapest and they are having HOT weather in the high 30's......going to be interesting lol

Grandies and some sewing

Hello again......okay this is to catch up to today......last Wednesday 12th July we drove down to help/look after this little man and  

his big sister, who was glad to see Woody came too 

that cute 

Paul went outside with Trixie to throw/kick a ball for her.....then he took her for a walk before he left to go see realestate agent and head on into the city.....

here are the 3 of them under my watch lol 

this Mr Cooper has amazing blue eyes 

and April is cuteness overload lol......I left in the afternoon and walked to the station but......trains replaced by bus and then a SLOW train to city.....took me ages, but oh well.....We also caught up with my boy Rex (no pics) and his partner for late tea.....he is busy with audit/tax time stuff and flat out.....
Woody helping me hook on with that beanie and watch tv......we stayed 2 nights to catch up on much needed cleaning and repairs of oven (which needed new element and completing that this Thursday/Friday)

back home the next day Friday 14th I tested out that zoom again with my mobile......this is a house across the road and the details look neat.....mossy roof 

and the beanie is completed ready to gift to someone ☺

Sunday night relaxed watching "Scorpion" and hooking as usual 

Yesterday Monday 17th July I decided to get on with some repairs and actually do some sewing of much needed tops........

this is one of my older machines but is a great workhorse.....and clever me using the twin needles for a nice bit of edging.....

just testing the focus on my mobile as was playing up lol 

and the top was finished same day and very happy with it.....

we had marinated chicken and a yummy low carb slaw on the side  

Today I have started another top with shorter sleeves 

using my newer machine who is not playing fair with the thread breaking......

I do love my pin holder, so cute......well must pack up a little as have Miss Cuteness coming to stay for a couple of up to TODAY.....finally xoxoxo
