Royal Adelaide Show

It was off to the show today. Misses 17 and 12 had the day off school today so we went to the show. At the moment I can hear the fireworks in the distance. I took the kids during the day to do all the daytime things at the show and my Bradley and I swapped this evening. So I am home and he is at the fireworks with the kids. (Fireworks are not really my thing. Actually, I don't mind fireworks. It's more that sitting on wet grass for hours is not my thing!) It rained this morning, but once we got to the show there were only one or two very light sprinkles. We were very lucky. I noticed a very dark sky whilst Mr 8 was on the dodgems. We were standing in sunlight with a dark cloud in the background. You can tell we are true Adelaidians because we would have been happy to be rained on, but it didn't come to that. Ahh........ now that commitment is over I can begin the sewing!

Daisy Days

It was a lovely day here today. We had a great father's day with all the kids coming over for dinner. Mrs 25 along with her bloke and grandson, Mr 20 and his fiance and Miss 19 and her boyfriend all joined Miss 23, Miss 17, Mr 15, Miss 12, Mr 8, my Bradley and me for a meal. My Bradley had a lovely evening and we rounded it off with a game of Celebrity Heads! Lots of fun and laughing. The photo above is what we get up to with spring in the air. Miss 23 and Mr 15 decided to turn our porch light into a daisy chandelier. They didn't get very far with it. The sunshine and balmy air called them to something else before they finished the chandelier! Hope your week is wonderful!

Op shopping

We went op shopping this week and bought some old books. Old books to draw in and paint on. And Miss 23 got some mohair yarn to dye and knit. (She loves to knit!)

September already?

Wow! This week has gone so fast. This is Mr 8 doing some cartwheels at the girl's school while we waited for them to finish on Tuesday this week. We had just been to the patchwork apple (wot fun!) where I got some fabric. (surprise) It feels like spring to me. Actually it is spring, but it even feels like spring! The air gives you the feeling that summer is just around the corner. I am a huge fan of winter, but I'm looking forward to this summer. We are now living much closer to the beach and it will be interesting to go to the beach in the evenings more often in summer. I have been doing a little more unpacking and sorting this week. More organising. We have lived here for two and a half months now and I figured we'd better get serious about the unpacking and organising! More fabric has been unpacked and I intend to sew up a storm next week!
