This month I have been keeping up with pictures on my phone on Instagram. I have been following the prompts from FMSPHOTOADAY. Today, however, I decided to blog about it. 

We had some heavy rain the night and again today.

General tidy up.

In between showers, I walked down the get the mail and a few other jobs.

Bit of meal planning. Menu tonight is: Fish (flake), Chips, Coleslaw and Cauliflower cheese. 

Molly joined me for a few outside jobs.

It's growing!!! Now 132cm. Tonight after dinner I plan to do some more. 

Have a great weeked, Dot :-)

It has been holiday time here for school children. This year is Tasmania's first year ever of having 4 terms. Even though my children are grown up, I still tend to put myself in the holiday mode. I have taken to sleeping in when I can and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I never used to be able to sleep in at all, but with the dark, often wet mornings and new dark blinds, I find it easy to do this winter. 

Last weekend we all awoke to cold air blowing from our heat pump. It was immediately switched off. Hubby had to wait for the rain to stop, which was the next day, and after getting on the roof and cleaning out a few cobwebs, away it went sending out hot air.  It's amazing sometimes what a little service will do. 

The weather was mild, but we did pop out to in-laws for a toasty warm by the fire.

My hands have been busy with knitting and crocheting. I have made assorted dishcloths and mug huggers. These have been mainly for gift giving. 

I am challenging myself with a new crochet pattern and making myself a scarf. 

When I popped outside recently, look what I caught!!!!

I stood for while in wonder. How beautiful.

Hi, I know I need not mention as you can see for yourself that my blog has had an update!!!! Thanks to my wonderful hubby, who works daily in this field of work, he spent a Saturday afternoon creating me a new header, new profile picture etc. I wonder if he will do this again for me in say, 12 months? (I have made a note!!)

Something you don't know is that I have a new phone. I have been slowly getting used to it. I am learning to take photos, but I am yet to download them to my laptop. 

Next time some pictures. Hubby....where are you?
