Married to Tony mother to 2 children Lucas 23, Gemma 26 & her boyfriend Sean. Carer for 2 crazy Jack Russells. I'm dyslexic so excuse any mistakes.
The Stitching Room is where I spend my time playing with Clarice (my camera) and Bernie (my sewing machine). Come on in and see what I'm up to.
It's Australia Day here in oz join Tony and I on a walk along the beach The crew set up their shade early so I expect by now they will be fairly messy. They went well prepared with volleyball nets and bocce.
We will walk to the Jetty and back
prepared for fishing
lots of line
and even some fish.
experiencing the fun of water at an early age secure between mum and dad
playing in the sand
many boats on the horizon
sun glistening on sand.
nearly at the jetty
turn around and head back
patches of shells
great sandcastles waiting for the tide to wash them away
Morgan I did leave her with my sensible hat
Lucas before he left this morning hoping he is sensible enough to keep that hat on and not get tooooooo sun burnt.
Down here in South Australia we have been luck to have not been touched by the floods having said that the water is flowing south and the Hydrologists(a word I have never heard used so much before) say the flood waters are heading for the Murray.
It has been a devastating time and daily we are bombards with vision and sad stories. I have donated to the flood appeal and have sent a small parcel of sewing bit and bobs off but I have been feeling guilty that my life goes on unchanged. I think the way news is purveyed has a lot to do with it, it is constant hour upon hour day after day. Which is why I have put off doing this post it is full of pictures of a wonderful day spent with Lucas while he was on holidays. My car was due for a service and it would take about 5 hours. Where we have our car serviced is a fair way from home so I usually pack a sewing bag and just sit and wait. As Lucas was on holidays he suggested he would pick me up and take me to Monarto for the day. He is such a good boy. Lots of pictures here so leave the tour when ever you want.
who says the weather isn't crazy thick fog on a January morning on the drive there.
you have to love those eye lashes
Lucas and I decided if this was in the wild we would be dead well before he got to use
they are so human there hands, fingers and nails are so like ours
