I am here!

You are forgiven for thinking I have fallen off the planet! I am here. My holidays from work finished, and I've been back there this week. I just finished a huge project, shhh, more later about that.

But added into the mix we have had terrible troubles with our phone line, which meant our internet went on the blink many MANY times over the last few weeks. In fact we've had the phone company, I better not say their name out loud in case they decide to switch us off entirely!! we've had them out three times in the last 2 weeks to check our line. Finally they decided to replace the line. We are still getting crackles, but at least now the 'net is staying on. Every time the phone went crackly we'd lose the internet before.

And they can put a man on the moon ...! Hmmmm. Enough said.

In amongst all of this, I got to spend a fabulous day with Esther up in Daylesford, one of my favourite places of the state. It was a glorious day. We looked through some of the gorgeous shops, took in a drag photographic exhibition, most interesting! Then up to the convent gallery for lunch and then to wander through the botanical gardens. So many pretty flowers in full bloom to photograph. Then we spent the rest of the afternoon at Lavandula. Although it wasn't lavender season, it was still a lovely afternoon wandering around the farm.


Creashens has the most fabulous new kit Furever. A must for animal lovers. While I have kept it simple here, there's a huge range of elements in the kit.

When I saw the soft colours, I instantly knew what I was going to scrap. Molly is a big sook, she is laying at my feet right now, which I must say is keeping my feet lovely and warm, because it's a cold day here today! She's never usually far from my side. So whilst I know she's a girly girl at heart, others see a big black dog and they think she's a boy. I had to scrap that!


Well it's blowing a gale out there and has been raining on and off. We are going out tonight to a dinner, but I don't want it to be a long one as the dogs will have to be outside. Whilst Lucky will go into a kennel, Molly is a stubborn old miss and won't, she'll sit outside and get wet ~~rolls eyes~~ So they'll both have their lovely warm coats on tonight.
