New To Store

Good Morning,

Its raining here again.  Seems to be the way this year, cannot complain really, as it is much needed.  Our Vege garden is loving it.

I have just added a couple of new decorations to my made it store.

Have a fantastic day

Carpet Snakes and other things

My mum has this rather large carpet snake living on their verandah.  Big E has taken a couple of its skin to school for show and tell, but it has always been hiding when we have been visiting.  Not this time, it stayed curled up in the rafters the whole time we were there, coming down at night.  The girls spent most of their time checking to see if it had moved at all. 

For my mum the latest photo of the frog tamer.  Big E adores frogs and for some reason they don't jump off her, she can walk around with them like this.  At least we have one person that finds them easy to catch.

Another week has flown by, which means Christmas is getting even closer.  I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet.  I am usually so organised.  I am finding it hard to muster the energy it requires this year.  Maybe next week will be better.

Have a great weekend

Home at last

Finally got home from Toowoomba.  We had a wonderful time away.  Everything was delivered to Bush Christmas on time.  It looked fantastic.  There is so much stuff there, so many creative people. The girls and I got our junk food fix and shopping fix.  They had a great time catching up with their cousins.

My darling husband cleaned and cobwebbed the house for me while I was away, it was so nice to arrive home to a neat and tidy house.  I will admit, it is hard to leave it tidy with little girls running around.  They are doing their best today to undo his good deed.  :-)

Now its time to start getting ready for the next lot of markets. So much to do.

Michelle and Merilee went to Surat markets on the weekend and had quite a busy time.  Michelle is off to Mt Tamborine markets this weekend, unfortunately I was away a little longer then expected and can't go to this one.  Maybe the next one.

Have a great day

Pack up day

Yesterday was one of those days where I wish I had stayed in bed.  Had to go to town to get the car serviced as I am going away and it was long overdue, only to be advised that it wouldn't be ready until at least 3.00, as a part on the bullbars had been recalled and they needed to replace it.  Well to try and spend 6 hours in St George is practically impossible, with a total of about 3 shops even remotely worth looking in, that was only 1/2 hour gone.  Anway Little E and I managed.  Finally arrived home after collected Big E from our neighbour at about 5.30, the rest etc. etc...  Had no time to work on anymore creative stuff.  Sigh.

Today is pack up day for bush christmas, plus tidy the house for husband day, as I am leaving for Toowoomba tomorrow.

On the bright side I get to see my Mum, Sister and her family and catch up which has been long overdue.

I will leave you with a couple more sneak peeks before I go.

Have a great weekend.

Little E was 4 the other day, how quickly time flies by.

Chocolate mudcake birthday cake.

Birthday shirt/dress from Narioka (thanks Julie), it suits as a short dress, my girls are only tiny.

Princess from Calamity Bolt (a welcome partner for Blackie).

Big E was allowed to stay home from school for the day, so that Little E wasn't lonely on her birthday.  A birthday party was planned for the weekend, but thanks to high temperatures and threat of rain, we cancelled.  Maybe next year.  The good thing about Little E is that she is so easy going, she couldn't care less.

Have a great day
