Mail and a Sunday drive.

I received my parcel from Retromummy during the week.  I bought two children's clothing books off her to help reduce her stash to move house, and oops, I think Keira must have stuffed a little fabric in the parcel when mummy wasn't looking.  Thanks girls. xxx

My Willy Wagtails started harassing me again yesterday when I hung out the washing.  A quick look in their next confirmed my suspicions.  Another couple of weeks dodging cranky little birds coming up.

Yesterday we went for $5 roast lamb lunch at a little country pub about half an hours drive away.  We took the scenic route home.  This is a sad photo I snapped.  Sheep in a dry paddock, broken windmill, no water in dam.

This old church is for sale.  We had a look through.  The owners from Melbourne were packing up to go home home.  It has a loft master bedroom (complete with original religious mural) two other bedrooms, big living area and solar power, it was very cute but not quite where we need a holiday house.  $110,000 for anyone interested.  Be warned it really is in the middle of nowhere.  

The long road home.


  1. I came here to check out your little girl dresses and bloomers and ended up staying longer. Love your blog. You have some beautiful quilts!
