Time flies....(tick tock)

Do you like these colourful napkins? I found the wooden holders at the op-shop & then some rainbow teatowels to go with them. They look lovely on the table. Another busy & exciting weekend has just flown by. My head is spinning. For the first time in ages we had the whole family here which was just lovely. Charlotte came home on Friday & boy oh boy was it good to have her home. On Saturday night we made gnocchi..always an adventure! It's such a fun thing for kids to make.


Then on Sunday it was my birthday! My cousin Bill dropped in for a surprise visit! How great to see him after a long time. Bill leads a very exciting life (sounds like Humphrey Bear..) & has not long returned from sailing around the world. Gee it was nice to see him. The kids were super excited & gave me sweet presents of soap & bath salts and the best thing...a fabulous dance concert.



I had two birthday wishes that came true. The first was a trip to the Sunday Market with Charlotte for a bit of treasure hunting. I loved this box of clocks...wouldn't they look great all lined up on a shelf?
Then I found a gorgeous blue woollen scarf from Tibet, a fantastic Nanna trolley for $5! & this amazing canister below. What will I put in it? I was thinking it would make a great bread bin, what do you think?

My other wish was to have scones for afternoon tea. We managed to have a quick & delicious tea party before heading down to Ballan to drop Charlotte off at the station. Can you see the pretty new cup & saucer Charlotte gave me?

All in all it was a great weekend. After ANOTHER rodent incident on Thursday night it was just what I needed. For Tania's sake I won't go into detail about the alleged incident but here are some key words.
Huge
Giant
Rat
Nightie Drawer
Trauma
Two nights at a motel
Exterminator booked.
Hope you had a fabulous, rodent free weekend! x

ps. Here are some little hair clips I have been working on.

Such a lovely post, until the end! You poor, traumatised woman! However, I will try to dwell on the positive and wish you a belated happy birthday - what a great weekend you had (and you clearly deserved it)!

Happy Birthday for yesterday! It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend... apart from that pesky little rodent!

STOP THE RODENT THING IMMEDIATELY OR I'LL DE-FOLLOW YOUR BLOG OR SOMETHING.

AND THAT WAS WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY, (picking up on the hyperventilating over here?), WAY TOO MUCH INFORMATION.

IF YOU GIVE THE EXTERMINATOR A CUP OF TEA YOU DO KNOW YOU"LL HAVE TO THROW THE CUP AWAY?

Sounds like just the very best sort of birthday. Happy wishes to you! x
