blue mountains and SSCS update............

first cold stop on holidays was the Blue Mountains.......we went to the Toy and Railway Museum at Leura.......worth a stop such a wonderful collection..........directly opposite is a park with the views below..........this little yellow flower on a shrub at the park..........

woops left to right views...........


spectacular............


would have loved to get down on this little bridge...........


there was an amphitheatre that would be a wonderful place for a special event...........down at the rails is where I  took my pics.............


and as we just can't grow tulips where I live I had to snap these at the Toy Museum garden............lovely garden to wander thru there too..........


SSCS participants............

I sent out an email this afternoon................check your emails as you must reply or I will start to worry........
..........to all the girls who have replied thanks so much............I love all the excitement and planning you are into.........everyone is on track so far.........a few people are finished...........OMG I must get a move on to keep up with those well organised girls.....but it does let me take a sigh of relief...
...don't forget to snap pics (and email to me) of your present before you wrap them for posting off between the 20th-25th November.............
ho ho ho .........Chookyblue............
