Some more visitors and us doing a lot of driving

Ah here is the man's daughter Missy with her Scottish friend.....she had spent more than 6 month OS and when she came back this fella flew all the way from Scotland to surprise her for her birthday ☺☺

We shouted them out for tea as part of her birthday....I had the surf and turf small pizza...

The man had Mexican chicken pizza with jalapenos 

Missy had Rib eye steak and mash

Scotty had a mixed grill and had a fit at how much there was lol 

He did well though.....these meals were at La Porchetta pizza pasta place but do have a huge variety of other meals ☺

Not feeling hungry now eh Scotty lol 

Oh yes and there is that tongue of hers, she just cant help herself....
We had a good time and they stayed the night and headed off home again ♥

We had another meal out, and this time it is with the man's ex and current work colleagues.....they get together every 2 months and I joined last time and had fun so went we are with all our friends lol.....just us ♥

The rest of the mob were over there near the bar and having a good time....

The man ordered the snag and mash and the snags are from a popular little butcher shop here and he enjoyed very much

I had the fish mix and it was yummy, but I did remove most of the batter, trying to be good ☺☺

On our way home in a taxi I saw the full moon and had to snap ☺
We have been doing a lot of driving down and back to see my Mum and that takes up a whole day a few times a week but worth it, but am feeling rather tired.....

Here is Woody hanging outwith my cat cushions.....he knows we are going to New Zealand soon and asked if he could tag along, so I reckon why not....a bit of fun with photo's.....
We also have my dear cousin's daughters wedding Sunday so after seeing Mum will head there for a good night ☺☺
The weeks/months are flying by and look forward to going away, but not the leaving Mum behind bit, but my siblings have all said just go....
xoxoxoxo May be missing a while just depends on Internet etc xoxo take care ♥

Fun with the grand kiddies

Hello my dear friends.......boy have we had a busy time while looking after the grand dear daughter did take young Misty for 2 nights so it was just us and little Riley, then the 2 of them for another 4 9 nights in total zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

We took them to a local club for lunch while our car was having its wheels rotated...Riley had chicken nuggets, Misty had a burger 

I had bruchetta 

The man had a rather large Nachos 

There was a kids and games room so these 2 had a lot fun while we chatted at the table

Car was still not ready so took them to a park near by....Riley loved this slide 

Misty looking through the telescope across the large pond to where we could see some pelicans 

Granny was a little on edge watching this fella running around and up high lol 

This girl loves her bat clothes 

I had a small packet of teddy biscuits and told Misty to throw 1 at a time and see if some birds would come over.....well, she threw the whole packet and attracted 3 pelicans who were a bit snappy lol 

Misty stayed behind Riley's pusher for protection lol 

There certainly was a variety of birds and Riley loved seeing them

Even a few swans came over to investigate

We bought them these pyjamas bat girl and bat boy, they were very happy and warm ♥

I also got him a great top with cape on the back and even bat ears on the cute 

He has lovely curls like his sister

Enjoying another meal at Granny's 

Riley loved storing his batman/joker cars and spiderman in our console on the couch

On our last full day with them we walked down to the post office as we do every day during the week and thought a lunch out at the local Irish pub would be good....Sharing margarita pizza, chips, calamari and burger ☺

Me taking all the photo's meant I had nothing of me with them, so on the morning before taking them home the man took this and the next picture for me ♥

Do I look tired......I sure felt it lol 

And Misty took 1 of Granpa, Granny and Riley ll 

On the road home feeling pretty happy

Just look at that face ♥♥
Well the house is a lot quieter and I am doing quite a bit of resting lol
Still visiting my mum every few days and she is still fighting on...
Thank you for dropping in xoxo

A picture of that pesky hawk and family time

See that pesky little hawk brown goshawk came back for a moment the other day and I was lucky with my zoom to get a good picture ☺☺ Now for the rest of this post expect plenty of grand kiddies pictures because we are currently looking after 2 for 9 days......

There is Mr 2, Riley in our car watching his mini dvd player lol

Here is Miss 7 Misty concentrating on her dvd lol 

We brought them back to our house which is roughly 2 hours drive and cooked up (already made before) some spaghetti bolognese and was loved 

Digging in to her spaghetti 

Not long before we ended up watching FROZEN......very popular as most of you out there will know and this little man loved it especially the singing ☺

Next day I made the mistake of showing him my fish "Billy Bass" and how to push the button and let it sing.......after many times I decided fishy was tired and put him in basket covered with blanket lol 

There has been plenty of grazing/snacking 

Drinking water or juice

And this little fella sure loves his food

This was their lunch one day

Pancakes for breakfast 

And doing a bit of school work, she loves her batman clothes....a real superhero fan

He even lay in our bed early in the morning with my 57 year old bear lol 

My dear girl visited for a night with her guy.....we took a walk in the morning down to the farmers market

It was a cold day but the sun was shining so that helped a lot

The path down to town with Misty way ahead with my girl and guy

Walking behind Granpa

Holding Granpa's finger as they cross the road

Even a shoulder ride on the way back lol 
I must say WE are feeling pretty tired and have 5 more days to go....wish us LUCK ☺

He had a ham, olive, cheese, orange and bread snack lunch today (sunday)

I managed to finish this blanket for a future great baby (sisters grandy) while on car trips with the man driving of course...

Also crocheted up this little hat for that baby too.....
Thank you again for all the lovely wishes for my Mum, she is still in stroke unit and we just take each day as you can......
