Well the move went well, without too many complications. The worst was the phone and internet. Phone was off till the Wednesday and no internet till the next Wednesday. I don't think I realised how much I use both. Now I am back on line and catching up on my favourite blogs. (the ones on my sidebar).
WHAT ELSE HAVE WE BEEN DOING?
Mostly trying to find a house to buy, by both going to Ballarat and scanning the internet. Some luck yesterday with 2 contenders. Now we have to mull things over and see what the outcome of our offers are.
We've also been trying to keep warm as the weather was atrocious last week, still cold and wet, but today is absolutely lovely. This morning we went for a walk and it got quite warm.
I found an apron I'd cut out and am going to finish that off over this week and some scraps I'll put together as a couple of charity quilts ready for next winter to go hopefully to fire victims in NSW who lost everything.
The quilt machine will not be put back together until we settle in a home of our own.
I also found some embroidery in my sewing box and will do that and some knitting of a night in front of the TV. Hopefully that will keep me out of mischief, along with weeding the garden here. It is quite nice, but oh the weeds!!!
Before we left the old place I picked a big bunch of roses, some lemons and rhubarb. Below are some photos.
|Lemons from my old tree.|
|Pierre de Ronsard roses in a glass canister that usually has rice in it Can't find any vases.|
|A few other roses in my little old glass bottles.|
Yesterday (saturday) saw us in Ballarat again and we ate lunch by the lake. We saw these 2 swans with their brood of 5 cygnets. We managed a couple of photos.
|On the grass.|
|Now in the water.|
Aren't they so cute. They only had a very short swim and were out of the water a couple of minutes later.
Just one of the lovely things to look forward to when we move.
Not much more for now as we are still both exhausted, but hopefully will post again midweek.
All take care and have a lovely Sunday, wherever you may live.
