Being creative

Hello there, been a little while again lol But LOOK I have finished a little blanket and it is now at our city pad on the couch 😃😃

The blue looks much better in the close up snap 

And finally back to working on that Sophie blanket which I started as a crochet along way back in 2015......Before Mum became unwell I was able to take it and show her and work on it while I stayed overnight......but then she ended up in care so I put Sophie away......Now I think it is time to work on this with memories of her 💗💗

I bought this batman comfort friend for Cooper a while back and have bought another so if one gets lost or something then there is another 

Yep still working on that knitted sock partner 

And how is this for a burger!!!  Called Godzilla and has 3 types of meet times 3......of course I did not eat all of it and left the bun too lol Paul tried to help but too much lol 

And here is how far I have got with Sophie.....many more rounds to go and sure is a piece of artwork 

Pork ribs again the other night, so tender and low carb 😀😀

And yes I have a thing about Batman.....this is my new pyjamas from Aldi which are really mens but hey I wanted them lol 

Cute shorts for this old Granny lol 

And last night we came to the city pad to stay and catch up with my Rex, I look a little scared here lol 

Happy belated birthday for Rex and his lovely partner evening we had xoxo

Last night while staying here crocheted a granny square with some random ball I had here.....nice as a coaster 😉😉

And Woody enjoyed watching Star Trek Enterprise with us 

Today it is busy out there on the Yarra river and many helicopters coming and going too 

Beautiful weather day, with many more currently which is a nice change
Well how are you all out there? Thanks again for dropping by and commenting xoxo

This week doing things ♥☺

Hello there, been hooking this blanket along and think it will stay at our city pad once complete ☺☺ I prefer black/grey/purple but well this is ok.........

Woody has had a bit of a relaxing time back home 

but on Tuesday we headed down to visit my youngest grandies and had lunch along the way.....nice prawn/avocado dish for me 

pork rib burger for him, but he left the bun out ☺☺

and here we are with Mr Cooper and Miss April ♥♥

so cute and lovely spending time with them and I even took them both on a walk to a nearby park......

April loves taking a selfie with my mobile ☺

she loved the swing and I forgot to take snap of Cooper......

but here he is chilling in the pusher while April went on the pics of THAT!!! Granny was worried she may fall of the ladder steps, but she does it all by herself with me having a fit lol 

and she loved the see-saw too......we had a lovely cup of coffee and then headed to out city pad.......

and here is a sugar skull my Rex gave me for my birthday with a battery t-light candle in it....Paul bought me that and I love how it looks......

here it is with lights on but candle still turned on ☺☺
We were supposed to see Rex for a night meal but he was too crook so will catch up with him maybe next week for his belated birthday ♥♥

back home we came today (Thursday) and I have been planning for weeks to trim the herbs in my could hardly walk through here till I did this......nice and trim with a Magpie just near the shed in the shade 

a little zoom in and looked like it was cleaning up some spiders along the shed door......eek 

My massive Rosemary is nicely trimmed back and all the herbs along here with the rhubarb in the centre.....

on the other side is that crazy aloe vera plant and some peppermint/sage is growing again.....sipping peppermint tea right now lol 

and the other herbal bed is all trimmed back off the grass, nice edging 

I love these hot pink (pig face) flowers....great cover to keep weeds back ☺☺

lemons are growing crazily among some spider webs.......

and that Magpie sang a little tune to the parrots in the distance......lovely weather finally here with many more warm days over this coming weekend ☺☺
May you be doing something you enjoy and thanks again for dropping by xoxoxo

Final part of trip ☺☺

Well yesterday we headed off to our next spot. Woody was keen and liked hanging out the window for a minute lol 

we met cattle along the monaro highway 

Paul wanted to check out a gorge that we had driven past many times, so we unhitched Winnie and drove on........forest road 

much better without towing 

table and bbq/fire pits 

and a drop loo with tank water 

we walked along this path 

there was water flowing down there but just looks very rocky lol 

bits of stream flowing through the gaps 

flowing past us as we looked along the gorge 

the gorge......

Paul walking back another part of the boardwalk back......we then re hitched up Winnie and on we went 

stayed here last night and did not have to unhitch ☺☺

we walked to this bowls club for tea 

and enjoyed this bottle of red ☺

and I had a great seafood dish......yum 

this morning we left the van park and went for a swans in the distance 

we went across this big footbridge 

noting there were many more black swans enjoying the sea 

these 2 were a bit nervy lol 

life saving club at Lakes Entrance beach 

and the sea.....
Lakes Entrance is a coastal town in eastern Victoria, Australia. It's known for the Gippsland Lakes, a vast system of inland waterways. There is a pedestrian bridge to Ninety Mile Beach, which stretches along the town's Tasman Sea shoreline. Wildlife around the beach and lakes includes kangaroos, pelicans and dolphins.

looking the other way 

and straight ahead to Bass seeing this, good sea air too  

we then had another long walk and stopped at a cafe for a late breakfast (10.30) and was nice, but have better here in our own hometown cafe ☺☺

and now we are back home again......Paul doing the remote control thing of bringing Winnie in ♥
Well that will be it from me for a little while, so take care out there xoxoxo
