Even down to the most beautiful packaging and a beautiful little surprise in my bag when I got home - a beautifully presented postcard.

Mitchell has been working full time at Woolworths, but had yesterday off, my beautiful boy cooked dinner for us. What a lovely surprise on a Friday night. Thanks Mitchell.
Cameron is having a wonderful adventure on his trip. So far he has seen LA, Vegas, San Francisco, Seattle and is now in Vancouver. He has been uploading to his Facebook page, so it is lovely to see him as goes along. Skype is also a wonderful way we've been staying in touch.

How did this boy suddenly become a young man on a world adventure? I'm not sure because I am sure it was just five minutes ago that he was born on a cold winters night by emergency C-Section under a general anesthetic!!!!!
Cameron rang this morning at 3.40 a.m. to say he had arrived safely in LA, the first stop of his eight week around the world adventure. I am a total mess - partly scared witless and partly so jealous it's not funny!! I will pray for his safety and his safe return and I'm sure the 23rd January will be here before I know it, but in that time he will travel across the USA, have Christmas and New Year in New York, travel onto London and Paris and then return home via Singapore.

What a busy weekend I have had. Thursday night sees the opening of the Pittsworth Craft and Find Food Spectacular at which I have a stall booked.
These little pushpins too were heaps of fun to make. I used "Hannah Bella" fabric for them. On Friday night I had such fun making the packaging for my goods. I hope they look OK!

Our Carnival of Flowers is over for another year. We won a second place in the Semi Advanced section this year. Our garden was open for nine days to the public. Being a little out of the city always means not many people venture our way. A little disappointing really for all the work that goes into it all. We won some cash and also a two night holiday at a lovely resort, so that was a lovely surprise.
We still haven't had any rain and the effects are really starting to take hold. We are reaching desparation point as our tanks are nearly empty. There is some rain predicted for during the week. So, here's hoping.

The weather has turned ridiculously hot for the end of August. It should be still freezing. I wonder what the rest of the season will bring. Where did Spring go? I want Spring before Summer.

More to come - I hope!!

I had one huge cutting session yesterday afternoon, so onto the stitching. I so enjoy my time I get sewing.
Now, could someone please explain something to me. The people who live behind us have just recently moved in. They quite obviously are both at work all day and then never make it outside even on the weekends. Now my problem is this. Why do people like this get a puppy, not one but two. These puppies never get played with, walked or bathed. They must be getting fed, but that's about it. Now, these little fellows must be bored out of their brains. They are chewing everything in sight. Yesterday, they dug under our fence and hauled this 20 metres of dripper line completely onto their side and by the time we found it, they had chewed every fitting on it.
I brought it to these people's attention this morning. They were embarrassed and most helpful in wanting to help fix it BUT I still don't understand!!! Rant over!!!!
The pots are coming along beautifully. Hundreds of little buds. I am picking them off at the moment but will let them run into a riot of colour in the next couple of weeks. I still have them all grouped together for ease of watering. Can't wait to "decorate" the outside with them!
I love primula and have planted heaps of them. Look at these little lovelies just putting up their first flowers.
We've had two birthdays here in the last week. Alexandra turned 12 last Thursday. She had a lovely day and really enjoyed her very big girl gifts - a Pandora bracelet and a Country Road bag. Both very special things that she so wanted.
Yesterday Mitchell turned sweet 16. My beautiful boy is growing up too quickly. Here in Australia he was eligible to try for his Learners Permit. He missed out yesterday, but was successful today. I think they should provide a years worth of hair colours for the mothers of these children. I will be grey for sure with this one behind the wheel. I think he wants his first lesson this afternoon!! Now he has to complete one year with 100 hours of logged driving practice before he can go for his practical test. Good in lots of ways, an absolute pain in many others. Mitchell has also just signed a School based apprenticeship in baking. He will go to school four days each week and then to work one day to begin his trade.
Off to get my boy off the bus now - and have that first driving lesson!!!
