Catching up...........

Another couple of nights away with kid commitments finally home again.....some rain while we were away too.............22mls...........approx 5 inchs for the whole year though when it is usually about 21inchs........also throw in a Christening, 30th party and confirmation life sure is busy............I got an afternoon home yesterday which was madly spent cleaning and tidying the house and washing.........then a few hours chilling out on the lounge watching the rugby curled up under a quilt......it's nearly a month since I had any time at home during the day.............
Off to the cows this morning.........hopefully just for a few hours while Mr Chookyblue runs some wires in a fence...........
Over the weekend the beautiful weather went back to mid winter..........freezing chilly winds...............
perfect weather for the little girl above to wear this woolen christening gown..........it's very special to me.............I wore this gown when I was christened.........my great grandmother (who was approx 80 at the time) knitted 2 of these (twins) gorgeous gowns for our christening...........
&&&
To all the girls who have emailed me I think I have replied to all of you.............i'll put the list up as soon as I get a chance and you'll get an email shortly..............thanks for keeping the secret still too.......much appreciated............
Catch you later..............
