Springtime Florals ....
Offering free stamps for a good cause ....

Just some bits and pieces ....

It's been a while since I've posted what's been happening in my garden, so I took some photos today of my bulbs that are starting to spring into flower in pots on my patio.

Crafting time has been a little lean here the last few weeks. The start of August turned out to be a bit chaotic here with my husband having unplanned surgery on the first. He is fine now, but he has been home recovering for 3 + weeks, and then the kids both got sick so it  was a little crazy here for a few weeks. There were some fun times in there too though! I've been enjoying catching up with my nephew and sister who were each over from Perth on separate weekends. It's rare I get to have lunch with my family!

On the weekend I took the boys to their first Gold Coast game at the MCG. Josh decided at the start of the year he wanted to choose Gold Coast as his footy team (and my Collingwood obsessed hubby took it quite well really!), and I promised him we would take him  to a game. It turned out to be the weekend of a big school reunion / function at Paul's old school Assumption, so it was up to me to take the boys to the MCG!  We made it though and it was a glorious sunny day and actually very relaxing plus I loved watching them have such a fun day. It was a bonus that this was one of the few days spectators are allowed onto the hallowed turf of the MCG.

Hope you are all having a happy week with some fun family time too,
