Under Attack? No The Roulettes drop in!

With the sounds of a drone going on outside while I was sitting here, my first thoughts were a plane in trouble. Then the sound went away...

Hubby rang excitedly (he is on the train working locally) and said quick go outside there are planes on show doing tricks...

A mad rush to get the camera, oh no got to change the lens first, call son to have a look, race outside to find a good spot to see them...so hundreds of photos later I have picked three to share.



It's the Roulettes, how good is that?

Right in my back yard.

Apparently there is an air show at the local airport today, who knew, but I do now lol!

Just passing through...


A couple of interesting visitors passed through today.

Not sure if they are a couple, but the one behind was very keen to follow the one in front...

We have had quite a few of these Shingleback Lizards around this year. They are pretty big ones too.

Out With The Old, In With The New

Before...

After...

What a difference it makes!


Sorry I am a bit quiet in blog land but I am a little busy at the moment...the whole house is being de-cluttered and cleaned, starting with the kitchen...I am loving my new benches :)

I will blog about my big de-clutter a bit later...

Wishing you all well,

On my mind - A winner


I have been entering in a few giveaways lately, and was successful in winning these lovely Christmas fabric pieces from Robyn @ Stitchin' time.


Thank you Robyn, they are just lovely. I am thinking of making a table runner with the fabric just in time for Christmas...

I am also a winner on another matter. My visit to the Breast Clinic yesterday has proved to be a happy one, having been cleared from having any signs of breast cancer. Today I feel so relieved and have promised myself to keep eating healthy and exercising. Now that my shoulder is improving I am able to resume my exercise regime...

It's a happy day for me :)

Hope your day is a happy one too!
