I have managed to change the look of my blog over the last few days. It was time for a new look and a new banner.
Last week the Stitches and Craft show was heaps of fun. I loved catching up with all the girls and all the ladies who stopped by our stand. It was a long drive each day. Over two hours each way for me. Thanks to Paula who drove us into the city. At times it was at a standstill and we managed twice to travel 4kms in 20 minutes. I cannot imagine doing it every day. I left home at 7.05am after dropping the girls at two friends and we got to Caulfield just before 9.30 each morning and then it was the same on the way home.
Friday night Paula and I decided to stop off on the way home for dinner. We stopped at a hotel in Keilor and ended up meeting up with Sally, Trish, Kylie and Jodie. A lovely surprise as I didn't know Sally was over from Tassie. We had a lovely relaxing meal.
It was nice to unwind after a stressful week with some issues with Kady and her school (I won't go into full details on my blog), resulting in lots of phone calls, interviews and us being questioned as to whether or not we were good parents thanks to two girls who had recently decided to take a dislike to Kady and told many huge lies to one of her teachers and caused no end of trouble. Hoping things will settle down over the next few weeks.
Saturday I did a demonstration at Spotlight in Ballarat. A huge success. So much interest in the lovely Cloud 9 Design papers and the Fiskars tools.
Only a few weeks till Deni. Not long till we see Donna, Dad, Chris and Dylan.
Here is a pic of the hot house/greenhouse Jason built for me. It's nearly finished. Just need to add some guttering and plumb it up to a caged tank Mary and Eddie gave us. We have planted some seeds in pots already. So far we have Coriander, Basil, Tomato, Chilli and Lettuce seeds. Some have already started coming through.Jason borrowed Adam's dingo the other week. He has been busy working around the block and also prepared the shed ready to have the concrete poured last weekend. It's looking great.
