He's a handsome fellow and knows it too.

Looking forward to,in a couple of weeks time...a weekend of R&R, and a bottle or two.

Spending a day or two away from the city is just wonderful. Almost like a mini holiday, and one good thing is that it's only about an hour and a half away.

No noisy cars screeching and hooning down the streets...just peace, and **COLD**brrrrrr.
Yes it gets very cold there, so must remember to take something WARMING.

With reflections and all, even an exit sign spelt backwards....This is what we see from the "Office Window" right at this's about 3.30pm on Tuesday 23rd May...and I think the skies are about to open up, makes me glad that I'm indoors. Rather an awesome sight.

Need Sunshine...On a break, I went to look for some, I couldn't find any. All I found was a tram going past.

I found the front of the building where I work.

I found a tree out the front of where I work. And the leaves are going brown...this is not a nice time of year........Is there someone out there who could send some sunshine to us downunder? Any would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou.

Oh Dear, Last night this is what one was working on...Actually I was very pleased with the progress....and normally an item wouldn't get photographed until it is finished....THEN, I heard the 'VOICES' saying to me, "take a photo, take a photo", so, always willing to oblige them, I did.... glad now because not 10 minutes later it landed on the floor..."OOPSIE" was not quite the correct term used...more like #*&*^%*^&, hee hee. OK - next.

On the lighter side of things. "CONGRATULATIONS" to all those involved in the rescue of the two trapped miners at Beaconsfield, Tasmania. TWO very happy men walked out of the mine this morning at around 6am. Could you even imagine what it would have been like to spend the best part of two weeks underground and not knowing if you would see daylight again? Someone was looking out for them, that's for sure.

These books, plus a number of other items arrived from the Ukrainian Gift Shop ( , on 2nd May. So many great designs in them that it's difficult to choose what to work on. White eggs seem to be in short supply, so will have to practice some lines on a few brown ones.

With Mothers Day coming up on May 14th, I knitted Mum a scarf yesterday. A big daggy, but at least it will help in keeping her warm.

Another thing I purchased over the weekend was 'Sock Wool'....Yes, I am going to ATTEMPT knitting socks. Looking at so many pictures of what others have done has spurred me into giving it a go. Hmmm, maybe I can knit two left feet...........

A Happy Day...28th April

Recently I was able to take a few days off work. Great in itself..but even greater is that I was able to spend them with my Mum who lives abut 300 kilometers away in Horsham. While there, my niece Simone was travelling through on a school excursion and stopping for lunch, we were able to have a little "catch up". The younger generation are getting taller...or is it that we are shrinking? Mum was so happy to see her Grand-daughter as it had been quite some time since she last saw her. I think Mum is about 5'3".and for an Octogenarian, I think she looks pretty good.
