A busy week

I've had a busy week we've had the painters and carpet layers in. A lot of moving and rearranging of furniture.

Another busy week at school with the holidays fast approaching it's a mad time in the library with books coming in and the new books for next terms themes. With a three day week it was busy!

Today I moved my antique wicker bed from Ben's we switched I gave him a queen bed for my antique bed, this bed has had a lot of moves from Casterton to Ballarat and then to Ben's. I love this old bed and it looks fab in my new bedroom that I've created. I've put in and antique chair that I got from a garage sale and my upholstery friend John Rix re upholstered the chair my dad sanded and gave it a lick of french polish. On the antique drawers I have a antique light that no longer operates with a ladies beauty set and also a chamber pot! On the bed I have one of my many quilts that I've made over the years.

Today after the bed setup I took on another challenge the lawns, as some of you may or may not be aware I had a heart attack a few years back and don't do much gardening, bug of late the past 2 weeks I've decided to do the lawns as my exercise. I have not been on my bike for about 12 months due to a sore knee and sciatic nerve problem (Physio helped but then my knee caved in). Late January I had an op on my knee to see what the problem was, well in short it's damaged and I need a new one... alll my problems seem to be on the left side the ankle and the knee....

Well I hope this fills you in on my short but busy week!
Enjoy whatever you may get up to this weekend or week


I'll try and post pics of the room later

Term 2 of the School Year

Well it's nearly that time again...the nights are getting darker and the days colder...
2 more weeks and I'll be on holidays again....yippie...I love this time as I get to catch up with my big kids that no longer live at home or close by....
Nathan is in Foster which is a good 5hrs drive after a busy week at school! I do try to catch up and watch a footy game or 2, so far this season I haven't watched him play 😕 He has played a few games for the Seniors and now is playing Reserves footy he did however get BOG this week named 3 best.
Abbey is in Warrnambool and working at Lyndoch part time.. She does come over to visit and brings the Daisy Mae her black cocker spaniel. It's been a big year so far seeing how far she has come since her car accident in 2011, a mothers worst nightmare those first 4 weeks not knowing if she would survive, but in true Abbey fashion she proved the Drs and us wrong... The only downer about the whole accident is she now has a Brain Injury and because of this lost her dear and near friends... I can count on my hand the number that still include Abbey in their activities... She has found a partner and he is aware of her condition and is looking after her great.
Ben well he is our dark horse, he's bought a house in Cobden, but comes home most nights for tea or to use the washing machine. He works at CopRice and loves to party on the weekends. Bens got his own Ginger Ninjas which love him as much  as he does them 🐱🐱.

I've had the flu...leargie for the past 4 weeks, went to the Drs twice and on 2nd visit got some great drugs which kicked it although taking prednisolone and being on the nebuliser for asthma every 4 hrs wasp a  stroll have a slight wheeze but the night coughs and aches are all gone.
No big holiday this year but looking at Canada 2018 Alaska Banff Fairbanks Jasper Lake Louise Anchorage... Gotta save the ✈️💷💶💴💵💸.
Well I've had a huge Long Weekend cleaning and ripping up carpet...walls have all been painted fresh new colour Sombrero Tan and skirts in Rawhide Haymes paints, Gary Fryers and his boys did a great job.

Well hopefully it won't be another 14plus weeks till my next post.

Enjoy your Week
