Hello dear friends,
I would like to share with you some of the things going on in our lives...
The boys after some motorbike fun...
I thought it would be a nice idea to learn to ride a motorbike, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em right?
But on second thoughts I think I might stick to horse riding and get myself a nice docile horse. (Our dog Millie loves to chase wheels or anything that moves, she does not chase cars though).
We went to visit my mum for Mother's day yesterday.
Dad had found some treasures in his travels and kept them for me. Below is a lovely enamel bowl with some Panda bears painted on the bottom. I had an old jug already, given to me by my grandmother some years ago and so now I have a very rustic jug and bowl.
Dad also found this old meat-safe in very good condition except someone has replaced the handle. I will be on the look out for an original handle now, but I am happy with the one on there as it adds character.
The new cyclamen plant next to the safe was a gift to myself for Mother's day. I have a special present coming soon that I will share with you all when it arrives.
It looks to be the original paintwork.
Now the nights are cooler I have organised myself to do some knitting,
just some more dishcloths, these are easiest for me as I can manage to finish them.
Big knitted projects never seem to get finished by me, I lose interest and start on something else before finishing the other item.
I even tried my hand at a crochet one.
I am hoping to try knitting bed socks next, now I have found a pattern.
A friend gave us an old barbeque that was no longer any use, well the bbq part anyway.
Hubby decided to use up some scrap wood and make it into a utility table, I am pleased with the way it turned out.
Bonfire season is here, we have not got to light this yet as we want to make sure that it is not too dry as we haven't had that much rain. A few fires got away recently due to it still being too dry even though it is no longer fire ban season.
The circus was in town on the weekend. We could see the tent from our back yard.
I hope all you dear mothers had a special Mother's day spent with your loved ones,
Have a great week everybody,
