We've got a bit of a cockatoo situation at the moment. Attracted by the chook scraps a gang of cockatoos has been hanging out in our front yard, chewing the front fence, acting tough and generally being a bit of a nuisance.
They are a beautiful bird though so I can't be too cross. Lovely Betty from the Op Shop suggested I throw some plastic toy snakes on the grass to deter them. It seems to be working!
Do you like this little frock? I couldn't resist this little vintage dress that I found in an oppie the other day. I no longer have anyone who would fit into it...but it has little white scottie dogs on it...and it's just so sweet!!
I might just hang it on the wall..:)
Yesterday I started cutting up the beautiful grey Italian wool fabric I bought at The Fabric Store.
I was keen to see how a bunny would look using different fabric. It's more of a stream lined look, I like it! What do you think?
Today I was so happy & grateful to have the chance to go and watch Billy & Lucy play for the Hepburn Burra's.
I think Bill caught me snapping away here, he looks a bit embarrassed!
Usually we are at ballet on Saturdays so it was ace to have the opportunity to the kids play footy and netball. And Charlotte came too!
It's been pretty cold and wintery here lately. I think we are all suffering a bit from the winter blues. The kids are a bit ratty, I'm feeling frazzled...it's not all bad but I am feeling a bit house bound. How do you cope in the winter months? Do you get grumpy too?
At least it's good weather for baking! Today we came home and I whipped up some scones...mmmm.
There was a period of total silence (45 seconds maybe...) as everyone happily munched on scones with home made quince jelly and cream. Oh boy, yum yum.
And tonight ! Yes! We are going out to a friends house for dinner, woo hoo! I can't wait.
What are you up to this weekend?
Take care, see you soon xo
