November nearly Over!
Well now, since I last blogged, I have managed to get out my Secret Santa which was being run by Chookyblue. It's been posted off to a far off destination overseas and until my partner receives it and opens it up I'm afraid I can't really share what's in the package................
How the time has flown since we got back from our Holidays! Pete and I both had the good part of a week still to go before heading back to work, and while I had thought I'd get lots of sewing and sorting done, I had forgotten that when dear hubbie is also on days off, that usually means I take on the Jacaroo and apprentice drill................ I'm sure some of you know just what I'm talking about here............. so, I helped with some fencing, clearing, running off in the car to pick up this, that and the other, assisted with the numerous calls for "just come and hold this for a minute", which most good wives know that means I'm about to loose at least an hour from what I'm in the midst of doing LOL Anyhow my dear hubbie achieved some things that did need doing and the back fence being replaced with colourbond has given us some lovely extra privacy and has also cut down on the wind that used to come ripping through the back!! It's so lovely to have that private back yard feel!
In the meantime there was a lot of excitement when I had 2 large boxes arrive here the other day...... prizes from the 12 week programme hero award that I had won...... I had no idea what was coming and WOW...... absolutely amazed, definitely spoilt and I'm certainly enjoying trying out all the new appliances and gadgets!! I'm certainly feeling like its already Christmas! and Very blessed!!
Scarlets little chicks have been growing well and with 3 of them looking like they just might be up and coming roosters, it was time to say goodbye to these 3 who were headed back to the fellow where the eggs came from! He had asked that if there were any roosters if he could possibly have them if I was not wanting them........ so rather than me continue to feed them and keep them in the little chook house which was going to get mighty tight for space, I decided I would say goodbye to them now. So they got to come to me to work to the hospital office (only in the country!!!) and we listened to all the cheaping from them until they were collected later in the morning LOL
Scarlet still has 4 of her chicks with her, no doubt making it a little easier for her to find the extra food around the garden, and not to mention I'm sure they have a bit more room under her wings at night now !
I'm also busy doing some very secret sewing for dear daughter for Christmas, and since she doesn't tend to read blogs, I''m pretty safe in mentioning it, but I won't show any pics just yet...... But I can show you another different Christmas decoration I've finished for a kris kringle Christmas decoration swap on a Facebook Group. I'm quite happy with how it turned out, so plan to do a couple more of these.....
Well, now I must go and get ready as I have a friend coming over today for some crochet fun....
Take care, Sharm
