A sleepy week

 Bo Peek had the flu this week he spent all day on the lounge, you never get to sleep alone on my lounge it belongs to the cats, they own it fully.

 My daughter had a baby shower last weekend,
 She had purple spotted balloons
 Australian native flowers.

 and these pom pom things that took forever to make, they had instructions.
 Looking out the back the other day I saw a crane poking above the trees.
A new house is being built two houses over, they must have had prefab walls as the were all up in a day.
 These two are never together but one is sound asleep, the cranky ginger one who is the other ones mother but no motherly love there.


 On the bus stop in Parramatta, I'm pretty sure that building was much smaller last time I was here as you can see they are numbering the floors maybe they are going up so fast they forget which floor they are on.

 Well it's goodbye from me and Leeroy as you can see napping is never alone.

Dreams and other things.

Dreams do you have them, a lot of people I have spoken to about them say they don't dream or do not remember them where I have a whole different life in my dreams. My dreams are mostly about a journey somewhere I never get there and there are always things put in the way does this mean I haven't reached my full potential yet well I had better hurry up as I'm not getting any younger, it's about 50/50 some good things and some bad I guess that is what life is all about.
This week was very busy the son and daughter in law's house was sold last Saturday and that was a Auction they all sold that way now, as no one knows what there house is worth these days when we bought our house the interest rates were 18% and prices were stable and didn't change much, the auctions were popular but they are a bit costly, the location means a lot these days and they pay a fortune for little more than dumps as long as they are in the right area, their house was really lovely but not super big as some of them and in the Parramatta area which is working class some as ours, they got a good price but no where near the million mark which is what everyone wants, I must admit the prices are cooling and its about time too.
The beer fairy went back to QLD with them for a visit and his brother, he and his wife spend the winters in Sufers as the winters in Tumbarumba are freezing, lots of snow down there now , I've not heard a word so everything must be going ok, he is coming back in a day or two so will get all the news then, my dragon is keeping a eye on the place.
I've had these little chairs for agers the dolls sit on them but I guess the the wee ones when they grow up a bit might like to sit on them.
My daughter gave me this chair she is finding room at her place for all the new baby stuff and I have lots of chairs but I do sit down a lot so they come in handy.

This one sleeps a lot.

This is now the baby's  cupboard.
My son's Snow walker I am very fond of it now but it will most likely go to QLD as they are now offically Banana Benders.
The house notice.


Mrs bag had a bath, she holds all the plastic bags from the super market, I use carry bags but the beer fairy still brings home plastic bags and I use them to hold the rubbish.

This is her second bath she was very dirty so was pleased to be clean again.
Painted my sun seat and fixed the back with no one to talk to, well the beer fairy talks a lot I got a few jobs done around the house and the weather has been cold so who wants to go out much can't wait for spring this year.
My daughters partner parents were over for a week from NZ so the four of them went up to Port Macquarie  for a few days so my daughter gave me a new little fellow for the garden so he joined the union meeting in the back yard I guess they will agree to his terms as he looks like he will take no cheek from the rest of them.
well that's my week, this week bye now.....

A few words from Angus.............

Hi I'm Angus as you most likely know,  I'm visiting with Merle and the Beer Fairy for a few days, I will show you around, this morning it rained so I had fun in the garden, I found some chips minus the garlic sauce Drummy ate that fancy only eating the sauce and leaving the chips also got some bacon rind from Merles breakfast usually Drummys but I'm cuter so I got it this morning.
 She has done some work since I was here last, more paths not so boggy when it rains, I liked boggy.
 Lovely sun now, will stand here and catch a few rays.
 So so warm.

 But I miss the mud always good to dig in.

 A bit here wonder what's in here maybe something to eat.

 Sleepy Boo Peep
 Augus bed is occupied
 A dapper young man about town .
 His mum.
 My daughter
grumpy beer fairy

his father
Well that's all from us this week, it's lunchtime and I'm going to see if Merle wants any help with dinner.

Elections and a bit more garden.

 This week has been quite here but the rest of the world has had a few developments.
UK have split with Europe, well I guess if I had investments they would be down down down like Coles prices but I'm ok my modest sum in the bank is still the same.
We have a federal election coming up this Saturday and boy am I sick of all our pollies, every time you turn the TV on here they are telling you what they will do for you, not a lot really but they do a fair bit for themselves, but lately they are ringing me up with recorded messages and asking me who I'm voting for I just hang up now but when you are on the loo of in the shower it can get very annoying.
We have a cooling off time which  started at midnight last night, so no more vote for me adds.
I know USA and UK have elections coming up we get all the latest on the news what are they going to talk about when they are all over and the football season is over, world news would be different.

 I made this following a pattern.
I went wrong somewhere and not to crazy about knitting with cotton it keeps falling off the needles, oh well good to try new things.
 Finished this path, had to take it apart and redo, it fits a lot better now.

 The beer fairy's garlic is doing well out of Drummys reach.
 Wonderful winter sunshine but not today it's very overcast and cold thats why I'm inside.


 The supervisor, management material.
 This bit to do.
 and the other sun seat for the cats.
 No one wanted their bird cages back so I  made them into pot plant stands.









It is cute even if a bit wonky.
