long time no post...........

sorry for dropping off the planet but we had visitors over the long weekend and had a fab time with them...........lots of sewing and quite easy time....just what I needed................ then we headed down the south coast and had more lovely relaxing time.............it is such a beautiful part of the world and just so different to the area I live in..........green rolling hills and wonderful lookouts are just not words you use to describe my area.............lol..........I was a hop skip and a jump from 2 lovely quilt shops............visited a few more...........went to some beautiful open gardens.........I would go back much more often but the 8 hour trip really takes the toll with 2 kids in the car and dh is very glad we only seriously played "spotto" in our travels yesterday...........and yellow road plant equipment are NOT included although dh tried to create trouble..........lol............(spotto is where you say spotto when you see a yellow car, ute, truck, bus - Fairy Girls game)
Anyway back to the south coast........we didn't take enough warm cloths - lucky I found a coat in the car.......I am so not used to the weather that changes with the blink of an eye...........and the wind was terrible most of the time we were there but we did manage to do and see lots and hopefully I will share some pics soon...........also managed to do some sewing while I was away too............I took my machine first time ever........

but i did think we were going to have internet while there and the connection wouldn't work and there were no internet cafes so it was a net free week...........but now I am even further behind with bloglines cause it has been a few weeks since i cleared them all out 1000+ and I had a pile of emails to sort thru.............but that is nearly done..........
.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........

  1. Hi Chooky - where did you end up on the south coast? This is where I live and the weather has been unbelievably changeable - we had a visitor from Holland here last week and the wind was so cold I thought it was going to snow.

  4. I'm glad you had a great holiday. We too sometimes play spotto (although my family never did when we were kids - I've learnt if from Mick) We went from Goondiwindi to Mackay last year before we could find a yellow car! I've taken my machine on hols a couple of times now, but it never gets used - we never seem to stay still long enough.

  5. Glad that you had a great time away. You were missed!! Weird weather there though! Has been fairly hot and non-eventful here lately. Can't ask for too much I guess!! Hope you can find some time to get to all the bloglines and emails I'm sure you have to sort through!!
