Visit from the girls and OFW

This morning our DD1, GD1 and  our GGD1 come to visit… Alexis made herself comfortable on the lounge


and later helped Poppa water the new trees….


while we chatted and did some measurements for GD1’s dress.    I always enjoy seeing my girls…….

 A bit late but it is still Wednesday sew here is my flower for this week….. Do pop over to Karen's to see other flowers..


The flower is sitting in a pretty Grevillea Bush that’s one of the natives growing on the block. At this time of year there are many colourful natives…

After a week off the builder has finished three more houses…

001 (2)

Only three more and then I can put my village together…
