My Week

Another week has come and gone and finished on a happy note hanging out with an dear friend just like old times but probably with different conversations to what we once would have had hanging out in the city together. It was an emotional week again with much to comprehend, there were lovely conversations with my Dad albeit a little difficult to hear some of his words, a procedure not pleasant but necessary though giving me the positive reassurance all is ok, behaviours of growing girls to navigate and plumbing problems fixed now but the cost ouch!  All is well, challenging at times, full of learning but blessed all at the same time.  My life this week
1. Baking bikkies for the lunch boxes, these sugary, honey delights a favourite. Recipe can be found here.
2. Cutting into pretty fabric, a quilt in the making for Miss 9 a little surprise hopefully in time for Christmas.
3. Pretty packages in the mail.
4. A sunset this week.
5-7. A visit to the tea shop with my dear friend for a pot of tea and a scone.  A pretty little tea pot making it's way home with me.
8-12. We visited town hall and took a trip up to the new museum. The renovation is just stunning and walking through the Expo 88 exhibition was a trip down memory lane, boy time does seem to just fly by.

I hope that you've had a lovely week.  I'm joining Em this week.

  5. HI Catherine. thanks for your beautiful words on my last blog post. How is your Dad? have I missed something? I haven't read any blogs for quite a while. Brilliant photos. I am wanting to tour the City Hall as the renovations are over, the Shingle Inn has opened too. I must say, Tea and a scone with a friend is great medicine at any time. I hope all is well. Jane x

    You have a Miss Maggie! Looking forward to seeing her finished - I enjoy that blog too.
    Tea, a treat for the eyes, nose and taste buds. I enjoyed a cuppa of organic white tea this afternoon (thanks to your blog).
