Oh my %$&()*%##&* god....

See the baby plover in the water.............he is so cute...maybe 10cm high when standing on the ground.......I have seen the plovers at this water hole for weeks now so thought there could be babies......they are fiercely defensive mothers..........
So I am supposed to be going on retreat today..........lucky I packed the car yesterday..........the trip into town for work was horrendous........worst I have ever had I think.........got bogged twice.......spent more time sideways and travelling from one side to the other then on the road............2 cars had been in before me.........one of them had taken out a sign post...........
and more rain is forecast so I may not go home til I finish town work next week..........sorry about all the mud on the windscreen......
So after a 6hrs trip yesterday afternoon to pick someone up I am now in a motel on my way to the Bathurst Blog Meet........see the little counter on my sidebar.......
you should see how many million projects I packed in the car........I could stay away for months and not get them finished but hey we always need options when on retreat.............
1/2 these awesome girls (2015 pic) plus some new ones will be hanging out together for the weekend...........
I can't wait to give them all a big hug and catch up............
Catch you later..............

  8. Yikes! We have that trouble with snow in the winter, but I think snow is more easily remedied than mud! Hope you have a fantastic retreat. Why do we take more projects than we will ever finish? I always dream of finishing them all before I head home - ha! Have fun and have a safe trip home.

  9. Just to see all the smiles I would say the trudging to get there was worth it all. Have a great time.

  11. You poor thing, getting bogged was always exciting when we were kids but now I am an adult, it is not an experience I enjoy at all! My memories of going to school in winter were of sliding all over the road - but we got sealed roads when I was in my 20's. So I hope the shire give you sealed roads....one day! Enjoy your sewing trip.

  19. To Quote you "Bugger, bugger, bugger!" Only time I'm sideways in the road is in deep snow-it's scary!
