Full moon, family time and STEAM

Hello out there.......roughly 11 days ago I saw this rising over our neighbors house and you know I love a full moon 😃😃 

and have been doing very little of sock knitting but admiring the stripey colours.....these are for ME 

on we go enjoying "Great British rail journeys" with sock knitting a little lol 

On Friday 12th my sis Julie and Carl came for the night......hello Jule lol xoxo 😈😈

on the Saturday 13th can you guess what we were waiting for 

a selfie on the footbridge ☺

can you see something?

a headlight and is that steam 


A2 986 Steaming Again After 52 Years! Steam Trains Australia

We went to my local station to have a closer look 

sitting next to the Velocity train 100 years apart in age ♥♥

and as luck would have it the older Diesel came through.......

youtube showing the first time it moved for any other train crazy people out there lol 

and later that day it left my station to return to Warragul where they had been celebrating all day ♥

getting closer 


look I even got the firebox in this snap and the driver too ☺☺
TOOT TOOT goodbye......and my sis and hubby headed back home after having a fun time with me....Paul was back at home as he is a bit over steam lol 

now I am hooking up a blanket for someone in very bright colours watching "law and order special vicitims unit"

just love doing the simple granny crochet ♥

and last Sunday was Mothers day so on the train we went to catch up with my kiddos and some grandies too 

April watching some fun show 

and my boy Rex meeting Mr Cooper ☺♥ this son is now back living near us all so happy ♥

me April and Aunty Sarah and would you believe that is all the pics I took.....busy doing other stuff lol 

I got this fancy skull 

and the following day Monday these flowers came from Jason and Jess ♥♥

we stayed 2 nights in the city and watched Master Chef and I knitted a little with Woody lol 

April did that lovely star artwork for me so it is now going to sit here in the apartment ☺☺

Tuesday 16th we trained it back and now both being seniors the travel is a lot cheaper 😃😃

and the flowers travelled back on the train with me ☺

lovely country views along the way and faster than the cars lol 

now in 2 vases here for me to enjoy and almost a week old and still looking lovely ♥

back home and hooking and again watching those rail journeys a week later lol 
Today is Sunday 21st May and do hope you all out there are having a great weekend


  1. So glad you had a happy Mother's Day celebration, Wendy. I did, too. This week I planted some plants I was given and I still have a bouquet of flowers that is holding up well, also. It is fun that you got to enjoy more time around trains and your family and you have even managed to do some more stitching! xxxxxx

  2. Great you had a good Mothers day too Gracie ♥ yes trying to be a bit more productive lol

  3. I enjoyed seeing all that you've been up to.. what a great family you're all growing! Those are some pretty special flowers you were given. Enjoy your week.. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
