Sunday



One of my favourite things to do while on holiday is visit the local op shops.


And one of Mum's favourite things to do is jigsaw puzzles! I found this beauty at the Lifeline Op Shop in Maroochydore, isn't it fantastic?


I also picked up some games for the kids. Battleship was one and also two decks of cards. We've spent lots of time making card houses, and matching up number cards, fun!


I found this little French embroidery & hand made thread rolls at the Salvo's Family Store. I might need to visit Merrilyn for some tips I think.


And don't you love second hand books? This one is our Book Club book this month too, I loved it. Have you read it?


The girls also got some clothes, Bill found some Simpson toys & I fell in love with this vintage Ric Rac, yay!


There is a lot of fun to be found outside too. This gorgeous creature, a blue tongued lizard, was sitting on the path yesterday.


Anyway, our holiday is coming to an end soon, it will be hard to say goodbye.


Even so, I do love home and I can't wait to get back to all our pets who I miss. I wonder if Freddie is still at the back door looking in? He will be getting two new companions soon, how exciting! Our excellent neighbour, Connor, is looking after all the pets for us & Max & Daisy are at the Doggie Motel. Can't wait to see them!! Hope you are having a happy Sunday, see you soon xo

That puzzle has lots of great detail- a good one. And Keith just listened to The Surgeon of Crowthorne on CD during one of his long commutes- it sounds excellent. Glad you had a lovely holiday. x
