Weekend roundup.............

Thanks to everyone for there recent comments.............I usually reply to all but just for the weekend I won't.........to many to catch up on and my brain won't cope..............thanks I really appreciate them all ............and I am so pleased you have been enjoying the quilt show............

Wow what a weekend.........we have survived and had a great time with fantastic weather and great friends...........sorry I didn't get a post up yesterday but I spent the day walking from the clothes line to the washing machine...........think I did 12 loads...........lucky the sun was shining and the breeze blowing..........

........boy did we go thru some food..............heaps of yummy stuff...........I cooked scones, choc chip biscuits, peanut butter fudge (totally evil but sooooooooo yummy), anzac biscuit slice, rocky road.........just to name a few things............none last very long at all..............

a bloggy friend made these for me and they didn't even make it home from town..........thanks they were very helpful.............and so yummy.........hope you share the recipes.........

as I had 4 extra families for 4 nights (Fiona one less) everyone got to do a meal night................lots of good food here........when I cooked this is what we got bbq sausages on bread at the dam and then some campovens for another lunch.........(sorry no pics)............

The kids had a ball............push bikes, motor bikes, yabbying, fires, sparklers, bone collecting, toasted marshmellows and lots more fun...........they didn't stop for 5 minutes..........

at the dam..........

playing with the camera settings at the fire night with the sparklers.............found a very useful setting which takes great pics.........


Well as I am still catching up on sleep I will leave it at that.................and I got a great new book from Tutti Fruiti............will share that tomorrow.............

.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........

  2. That is the kind of time that makes memories everyone will have for life. The food all sounds and looks wonderful. Thank goodness for washers and dryers.

  3. 12 Loads!!! Blazes Chookyblue... Yabbying @ the dam takes me back & how... Pieces of string tied around meat, hunched down & waiting... & waiting on the dam bank - *Us Kids were always trying to talk Mum into taking us out to the Double Dams - we must have driven her mad!

  4. Sorry to leave you with all that washing. There is chocolate in the fridge to make up for it.
    Love the photos of the "missing" slice. Good sign that it tasted so nice.

  6. Chooky, I can't believe you didn't post those photos of yourself doing the trick riding... I saw them over at Fiona's and I must say the blue jumpsuit is gorgeous.

    P.s I would love to know your tricky camera setting.
