April 2 xo

Hello,  On Friday I thought lets make a dishcloth/washcloth to try and get my crochet/knit mojo working again

And Friday night we went to a local night Market for a look see and I loved seeing all the bark that had fallen off this tree 

A gum tree, very aussie and we have plenty around here 

And I bought a rainbow hat, which is actually crocheted, and I love this. Packs flat too if putting in a case a bonus 

And on Saturday I finished that cloth and am now back to trying to finish my crochet and knit socks 

Sunday was a very special day and we drove down to have a lovely afternoon with this special birthday girl......April turned 2 and I bought her a Woody and she was so happy to see him and get out of the box he was in 😄😄

Nanna (Denise) having fun with April 

And Granpa in the back ground sorting our platter of food, and Papa (Rod) 

Woody dancing in the air with April lol 

Sarah arrived and enjoyed helping April with her pressie 

And I was holding Cooper, so a good chance for close up shot lol 

Watching the parcel fun 

He is an adorable happy little boy

With a recent haircut which went a bit wrong but looks so cute here, like a little man 

Oh and someone is putting Woody's hat on his head 

He is looking at Daddy thinking I know you did this lol 

Rather cute 

And suddenly Woody was on my shoulder lol 

Reaching up to get that little hat off his head 😁😁

The table of food 

Cousins and Aunties and Uncle arrived with more pressies 

So much fun and lovely to see everyone 

Sarah and Shannon had fun with Cooper and I do love this photo of them 😍😍

Singing happy birthday to April 

She had her own little cake and candle 

And loved eating it 

Aunty Sarah cuddle time lol 

Trixie loved having us all over and Ray held the ball stick up so I could get a still shot of her lol 

Setting up some skittles 

So Hudson could ride on through them lol 

April playing with her water activity set 

And oh dear, somehow April's Woody got on Trixie's back lol 

Think she wanted to attack him, but all good, was removed and everyone relaxed 😉😉
Wonderful afternoon we had and then we drove on to the city to stay.......

Today I did a little hand washing and hung on our little line on the enclosed balcony....dried beautifully with the shutter windows open lol 

Today, Monday we have done a LOT of walking and even have bought a washing machine for here.....
I really love the look of this building with some lions on it in the city......
So tomorrow we expect a delivery and then back home on Wednesday we think.
How is it at your place? xoxoxo

Last few days

Don't you just love this rainbow candle?  It smells fantastic and was a belated gift to me from my dear friend Lanie ♥♥

We have been a bit more serious on the low carb scene since xmas......loved these pork ribs and cabbage fry 

Paul has been enjoying a puzzle book from Ray and Lauren ☺☺

Yes I am still working on that crochet sock 

and knitted sock.....think my mojo has left for sure 

On Sunday we went back to the city to stay the night and went across the river to have a coffee 

View from our seats back to our little building in the middle.....after a walk we the caught a tram 

Ended up in St Kilda Beach and there is Luna Park's face info here  Opened in 1912 

The scenic railway climbing up the top 

Coming around the corner in the distance 

and down one of many hills.......

We did not go inside the park but enjoyed a good walk looking out to the bay 

In popular Acland Street plenty of shops here.....we had a bite for tea and headed back to city

We took an evening walk along the Yarra and back again 

Lots of walking and lovely lights coming on along the morning we were up early.....

To pick up my older grandboys....Batty here with me 

and Brandon......they both were going for their learners but poor Brando had a certificate problem so doing his next Monday......Batty can now drive with anyone game enough lol Amazing they are 16 and almost 19 oh dear I feel old.

And Dante'came out to say goodbye as we were leaving their house 

by Dante' pics of my dear Sarah but will see her and the young grandies on Sunday....April turns 2 ♥♥

Last night back home a quick spaghetti bolognese made with these noodles and YUM 

Today is Tuesday and we have quite a few appointments and look forward to a trip back down on Sunday to a park ☺☺
