Hello! Happy Friday! How has your week been? I have been a bit housebound. This was the week when I had tradesmen filing in and out completing the renovations to our new kitchen. On the downside this meant I missed the morning tea I had booked into with Melinda Harper at Heide (bit sad about that) but on the upside I now have a sink, stove and oven for the first time in three weeks! Phew! I was really struggling to come up with more electric frypan meals! And I have a pantry door that closes for the first time in fifteen years!
It’s always a bit weird having tradies in the house, isn’t it? I feel a bit awkward sitting there reading a book or crocheting. But what else can you do when they’re toiling away in your workspace? I imagine them going home to their partners saying ‘ Should’ve seen this chick today. All she did was fluff around reading, crocheting and flicking through the iPad!’
But I did manage to pop out for some dog walking and to do some Good Looking as Annette suggests. Not that it’s too hard to see the Good at the moment. Our streets are still rather bereft of leaves but the gardens are populated with purple, pink, red and white. So beautiful to see the magnolia blooms sitting on bare branches, and the camellias and rhododendrons splashing colour amongst their green leaves. It warms my heart, which is just as well, because it is still cold, cold cold!
Have you been indoors this week or been an out and about kinda person? I hope it’s been pleasurable either way. What about your weekend? Any plans? I’m going to a Blog with Pip catch up on Sunday. Excited!
