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

Onto Eden

Only 2 more posts then up to date, or at the least up to Tuesday 11th July lol 
We headed towards Eden plenty of extra info here We stopped off at Bodalla to get ourselves some nice cheese.....and the vintage cheese is oh so creamy ☺

looking back to the Cheese cafe 

luckily we found a park big enough so that we could stop lol 

back on the road and cloudy with a bit of rain on Wednesday 5th July  

we booked ourselves in for 2 nights at "Garden of Eden" caravan park.....and we were down the unpowered section with just us ☺☺

with the toilets and camp kitchen very handy ☺☺ We found out that the local Fishermens Club had a courtesy bus so booked that to go out for was cold and rainy lol 

and I ordered these lovely scallops baked in the shells.....low carb and delish ☺☺

Paul had a mixed grill and no did not eat the chips lol 

they had this great photo and a good reminder to me to come back to Eden to actually see the time October/November 

the following day Thursday was sunny so had a chance to do our weeks worth of washing to save me having 2 many loads when we got back ☺

looking back down from the washing area....

we too a drive to checkout the lighthouse 

always love seeing these and of course the sea 

another great shadow snap 

looking out to sea always hopeful of a whale glimpse.....but at this time of year they go past way out 

sure has been many shipwrecks here hence the name but the lookout is wonderful 

beautiful blue sea.....we then drove back to the van park.....

and look.....a family was setting up right next to us......of all the 30 odd spots they chose right next to us!! And blocked the easier way out for us to use.........

so we hitched up and carefully drown around the trees and them to this neat spot......stayed hitched up ready for the morning ☺☺

we cooked tea in our turbo oven in the camp kitchen and while that was cooking we enjoyed more episodes of "Outlander" ☺♥

and woke to ice all over the grass on Friday 7th July.....we then drove back home as I was needed to do some Granny duties on Saturday ☺♥
