... no photos.... 2015-9-28




 I have installed Windows 10 and I'm having problems.... 

I've sorted most of them out with Hubby's help.....

BUT..... I still can't put photos on my Blog.....


My big news is that the wedding photos for my Grand daughter will not be at my house as planned.... they will be at her home now...  I'm so happy for her... it's more special for her to leave from her own home.....
The renovations and painting are all finished  and we had the Kitchen Tea there and my Daughter was so happy with her 'new space' that they decided it was perfect for the 'Morning of the Wedding' photos.. 
AND ..they have a staircase...  perfect..



Have a good day everyone ... and when I've sorted out my photo problem I'll post some pics..
Hugs... Barb  xxx

.. Kitchen Tea time.... 2015-9-22




I went to my grand daughter's Kitchen Tea last Saturday....   the Wedding is on the 3rd October....   we are all excited... 




 

My daughter Mary, the Mother of the Bride, has had her home all freshly painted and renovated and bought new furniture.... her place looks lovely and the 'morning of the wedding, getting dressed' photos will all be at her place which of course is Lisa's home..... there was a plan to do the photos here but the Bride's home was finished being renovated in time....This makes me happy ... it will be more special  this way.

..Here's Mum (chopped of ), Merle and Hubby having a look ...  so much space now... 
There is a lovely staircase up to the bedrooms .. but I hope to show you the Bride on the Stairs photo later..  hehehe...


Back to the Kitchen Tea....
Here is me holding my great grandson Hunter... he is 'talking' to me..


This is Hunter's mum and the bride to be is holding him ...




This coming Saturday we are having a Come as your Favourite Horror Character party down the farm for my eldest grandson's 30th birthday.....
WARNING, WARNING .....

You'll have to wait to see what I'm going as  ....

.. Hello Spring time.. 2015-9-9 ...


Good Morning...  

I love  Spring with all it's lovely blossoms and flowers...  even the weeds look great...  



I  have been so disorganised lately..  It's frustrating...  Too many 'extra' activities going on....



We have done all we can to help Bob empty Edna's house ready for painting ... he's just trimming and tidying up the garden now.



I spent 2 days last week at my girlfriend's place clearing out clothes and re-organising her wardrobe...  she's very happy....



I re-sorted my linen cupboard and was able to donate 2 bags of linen to charity and put a dozen brand new tea towels aside for my grand daughter. Her Kitchen Tea is coming up soon and the wedding is just over 3 weeks away.....  I love having new tea towels in the cupboard..  I'm always buying them... a bit weird, I know....  but that's me... lol...




Our small electric jug had developed a dribble from the spout when pouring out the water for a cuppa.... we had to pour over the sink... so when I saw this in a mail order catalogue I bought it...
... it's wonderful. The water in the holding tank stays cold and only the water being dispensed is hot....no more lifting jugs of hot water... safer for Mum ... and we love the convenience of it too.



My cute new Rooster and Hen on the front verandah table..... I love the terra cotta colour of them.. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
Have a great day.... 
Hugs...  Barb  xxxx
