Just a short post ☺

Quick drop in here just to share what I am doing for now ☺
Started the partner for the sock I completed so let's hope I do not take 2 months to make this one lol

Finished some more mittens too

Still working on the Sophie's Universe crochet cal too and enjoying slowly while I spend time wasting/lurking enjoying other peoples wonderful creations of colour on the computer too ☺

The man has done a great job on the new toilet door and doorway is now finished, just tiny touch up's inside the loo ☺

And we got this lovely post card from his girl who we call Missy ☺☺
Thank you Missy and lovely to have a post card from all the way over the other side Venice! Beautiful ☺☺
She has been gone for ages, many many months and we miss her but she is having a wonderful time ☺☺
Hope those of you with snow are keeping warm and for those of us in summer now keep cool
We are about to have a little trip to catch up with our van club which we see a few times a year
Thank you again for visiting my little blog place

Visiting and around the garden

Well who do we have here? Max, my youngest boys cat who is a Maine Coon ☺ He is lovely and huge in length but slim in body....We had a little visit to 

Check up on this boy of mine who had been a bit unwell....hopefully feeling a lot better today

Look at Max all twisted up on his scratchy post home near the man....I missed catching a photo of him putting his nose on the mans hair and trying to tap him with his paws lol 

Back home, yesterday I decided seeing as I can't have any pets, that I would try and attract some birds to the is a water dish for them ☺

Just put it on an old tree far have not seen any birds have a drink....

A view through one of my Rosemary plants over the thyme towards a sunflower 

No sign of its yellow face yet.....I actually planted 50+ seeds and all that grew were 2......

The other sunflower at the front next to more Rosemary and everlasting Basil

The garage garden is not fairing very well, but am trying to build up the herbs as seem to be the only thing I have luck with....

Also fixed up my bird feeder so there it is now hanging in the tree.....

Still hoping to see a bird eat the seeds lol 

The spa is still a work in progress...maybe in a few months it will be up and running

And I bought myself some new sandals.... ahnu  link if you want to check them out more....I did not get them from their site though as they would not post to p.o. box.....I have a black pair and they are so comfortable and great wearing while walking even over rocky ground and you can even walk through water too as they dry quickly....

Another view of them.....I also have some of their boots and again fantastic to wear....

Yes, I finally finished 1 sock....only took me over 2 months lol 

The Sophie's universe cal where I have now completed part 1 & part released sometime today/tonight.....
How is your weekend going? Over here it is Australia_Day tomorrow (Monday) so a long weekend
See you again soon and thank you to those who follow me too xo

The beginning of some changes here

Well look here.....the man getting started on a little change we had in mind...
This is actually going back to how I started my blog when we did the laundry renovation beginning-of-laundry way back in April today is on a new start

Needing to move this light switch too

A door on the right is going to be a sliding door where you can see a tiled wall on the right....reason being, the door on the left is going to be removed and a wall will be there instead ☺

Cutting into the plaster on the laundry side of the wall

The man cut through the tiles with a plan to swing it over to this door's side and hey presto we will have a wall instead

Some tiles fell off but that is okay they are still good

Doorway fully cut

Sliding door in place temporarily, but you see what I have been telling you ☺

Moving the tiled wall around

See, all cut through on the toilet side

I did a little bit of helping with moving the tiled wall around and.....

There it is now in place where the old door was, no access from the hallway now, you go via the laundry

Other side of the tiled wall and some time in the future this little hallway is going to become part of our bathroom, which is in serious need of update ☺☺

This section will end up with a wall flush with the wall on the left

And here is that pathetic bathroom lol
We plan to put a bath where the shower is on right ie: extended by changing current toilet door and walling it up....and then basin which you cant see....with a half circle type shower on the right at back wall, with a toilet on the left at back wall.....big changes are afoot ☺☺

But for now back to some crocheting....I have made this hat for my 2nd son for his birthday and amazing how different that green looks in these 2 pictures....

I think he will be happy with it and also currently doing some fingerless mittens too
Any changes happening at your place?
Thanks again for the great comments left here, they really can brighten my day a bit ☺☺

Smile, but she was too busy lol 

Hello little man, he has such dark eyes and cute curls 

Their mum and dad happily chatting with us all 

Cute fellow 

My 2nd son....hello Frank

His partner....hello Fi

How cute....The Man with Riley in pusher and Misty pushing him ☺

Safely across the road with Granpa ☺

We had a great time out for a meal and lots of chatting.....look how happy they are ☺

And that Mr Riley was very active in the play area ☺

In the morning he had fun with his Hulk man and my Alice Cooper doll.....

Lots of fast whacking with a small wand and the Hulk went down.....
Later Alice doll had a broken leg fixed by the man ☺
It was good to have fun with them all and fun times with Grandkids 
Hope you liked this little family visit here ☺☺
