Brisbane and the cats

On the day before we came home we drove down to Surfers  Paradise.
There are a lot of buildings, a lot of sand and pretty good surf and thats about it oh I forgot lots of people.
But now I can say I've been there.
Back at my sons place, this was my room I had lots of American football posters for he has always been interested in it. I just do not understand it very well but I don't know much about our Aussie rules football and prefer to watch it on TV as they tell you what's going on otherwise I'm at a loss to what's happening most of the time.


My daughter in law made this pillow, she has just got a sewing machine and I was showing her how to use it.
They have nice big rooms with lots of windows.




And lots of bits are a giving it a homely touch.
Dee smoking area, she had to smoke outside at my place too but she even smokes outside at her place too in the snow now that would be tough, even as a reformed smoker I have a under cover area for when it rains for the beer fairy to smoke in, nasty habit glad i gave it up.  
This is cute








And the cats, there are a few, this is their sleeping  and eating area.












Some little craft projects.

Well I been home now for a week and a bit so this is the last post about my holiday.

  1. Love the home - full of interesting bits and pieces. And I am a sucker for the cats. You can keep Surfer's and the football though...

    1. Surfers's is a place where I wouldn't want to be at night time.

  2. Looks like a very nice time away, Merle. The beach looks much like a Florida beach. Your son and daughter -in- law's place is very artsy and comfortable looking. Love all the cat art and murals and the real cats look quite cozy in their own shady place. xo Karen

    1. It's all so new and clean my place never looks that clean no matter what I do, but my house is nearly 100 years old.

  3. Looks like a fun time away. LOVE that you have a smoking area designated. I don't like to be around smoke at all. xo Diana

    1. I often did sat with the beer fairy when he is smoking but now I get up and move away as I no longer can stand the smell.

  4. Nice place and great cat accommodation. When I saw Brisbane and the cats, I thought you may have taken yours with you. I don't think I could sleep in a bedroom with all those testosterone filled footballers on the walls......well, maybe I could ;-)

    1. It's very dark you can't see the posters in the dark.

    1. It was a good break away, this house is so different to the one in Rosehill.

  6. Yes, welcome back. We've missed drumstick, too. As another reformed smoker, I hope she abandons smoking some day. I took it outside, too, fifteen years ago, and rain and snow still didn't stop me. In the end it was the cost.

    1. The price is very steep now always a good idea to give up.

    1. The house is more homely now, when I first visited it was a bit new looking, just little touches change all that.

  12. Your son's home is lovely, I like the tree on the TV wall and I love the cat statues. The sleeping and eating area just for cats is a great idea.
