Where did

the past 10 days go !!!!!! I have been busy spending time with most of my little family..some popped in on their way to the city for a cuddle and a chat. some stayed longer and others I caught up with while I was in the big smoke.
While here we went swimming (twice), went to the markets,  had Easter hunts, chatted, played  games, drank coffee, ate ( some food and lots of chocolate) but I did no stitching.

003 Grannie’s Beach Saturday.

Seven Mile Sunday after a drive through the dunes.


011Hmmm!!! Lots of eggs.

then on Monday I went to Perth with my DD2 and Granddies. While there we went for a big walk to the shop,

Of course we needed a nice drink when we got there before walking home.


Wednesday we  went by bus and train to the city. Meet my DD1 in the there and then we all went over to the Zoo by Ferry. Was a fun day. We were even entertained while sitting on the lawn to eat our lunch.

019 Walking beside the Elephant.

Catching up with friends.

We love Meerkats. Can you see it keeping guard?


          The “Bell Tower”

also we watched movies and played games.

Even had GREEN pancakes for breakfast one morning.



Then home on Friday with DH. Lunch with Red Hatters yesterday and of course swimming (oh sorry bobbing) with the ladies this morning and then breakfast at the cafe.  Phew!!!!
I hope to sit in the cave this afternoon and finish a swap, wrap a gift and make some pillowcases. All to pop in the post tomorrow..
