two nice things ... and a mess... 2017-3-15



  .....  First nice thing ...... was my hubby removing the broken printer from the 'Office'   and packing up some of his bits and pieces so I can have somewhere I can use the Laminator without cluttering up the dining room table ...  he only uses the office for storage and to use the new printer .... so now I have some usable Laminating space...    I do like laminating things ....



I plan to laminate most of my colourings and some Christmas tree decorations.....  will be fun......


... Second nice thing ...... was receiving  a wedding invitation from my nephew....  the wedding will be outdoors in the mountains ... and the theme is Forest Fantasy with Titania, Queen of the Fairies.
It will be so much fun ..   I'm looking forward to it ....  

...  the invitation is beautiful and came in an envelope with a lovely Wax Seal ...  Mum was delighted with it  and is looking forward to going to the wedding ....
... now I'm thinking about what colours to wear ...  what would a Forest Fairy wear .. ????


Lately the weather has been wonderful...   rain showers and sunshine.....    Can't hang out the washing ... but the garden loves it ......

... and the Mess ..... is hubby's treasured Choko Vine ....  it has become a monster  ... it covers the fence and is strangling my Snapdragons ..  
... every day I have to re-twist the tendrils back onto the vine and off the Snappies ..... but I'm not allowed to cut it back ..... \o/ ..... I think the people in the units next door might get some chokos  when it fruits ...  there is a lot of vine on their side of the fence ......






Our hydrangeas stopped blooming and the flowers were fading nicely .. I love the colours they go as they fade....  


...  but today I noticed a couple of new  small flowers ...   they are so cute ...




..  I've let this weed grow through the old bench seat ...   just for fun....


 Have a great day .....   Barb   xxxxxxx

..the rain has come.... 2017-3-5



.. it's been raining in Sydney every day for a week now.....
.. some days there is sunshine between the showers
.. some days just grey sky...





.... it's nice to have a change from the heat wave we were having ..........

the downside for us is that Hubby has to live with towel and bucket drip catchers on his side of the back room because of leaks in the ceiling that come when we get a bit of heavy driving rain...  at least it's colourful ..



Autumn is my favourite season.......  I'm glad it's here.


Mum went out for coffee with her Aged Care Carer on Thursday afternoon, while hubby and I did some shopping.
..  this lady comes for 3 hours every Thursday to give me some free time ....  it's great ......



I'm doing some colourings that I think some of my family might like , with Christmas in mind...  
.. my eldst grandson wants this one .. it's 5inches(12.5cm) square ....

 I'm using my  0.3mm fine liner pens for these little ones..  I'm enjoying it .......


...  I like this one too... it's the same size as the other one .....



I took this photo of the flowers on the Chain of Hearts plant   they are  so unusual............                                                     


 I taken some plants inside te house so Mum can see some greenery  ...

.. a lovely Parlor Palm on top of the new china cabinet we bought recently .....perfect place for Mum's angel  to live ...


..  there are plants on a white stand near our book chair ... and Mum's Crown of Thorns plant beside it ..  Mum likes it ...





.. I changed the furniture around in this room when we got the new china cabinet.....  it opened the room up a lot ....



I put a Maidenhair Fern in the bathroom and it has given the room a lift and a pop of colour ....





.. Have a good day , Everybody ...    see you soon ...........................  Barb  xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
