The past week has been very restful, enjoying the sunshine much warmer than home round the mid 60's. Then yesterday another bus ride a five hour trip south and I am spending a few days with the family and enjoying seeing how much my little grandson has grown. For those followers who checked out the mobile I was making on my other blog it was assembled this morning, eldest granddaughter Rachel made the wooden hanger which I brought through in pieces...and Barryn having completed the putting of it together hung it above Finn's cot.

I have heard too,  from Annie that the second small parcel to celebrate my blog anniversary has arrived.   I sent her along with a few small items,  the owl fob I made a short time ago for my monthly woodland fobs challenges. Slowly I am parting with them and then sometimes I end up making a second one for myself.   I will have another one to give away soon, watch my blog for details.

Am enjoying the warm sunny weather such a change from last weeks wintery blast, and we lunched outside yesterday., a little shopping for some summer clothes, and with sister's help good bargains found. We started by finding summer slacks and these were our best bargain finds, and gave us a colour scheme to work on. Yesterday looking for top was  bit frustrating, an older body does not look good in some what younger styles!
 Result came home with material for two tops and Joan promptly set to work one is finished and the other well on the way. Photos will have to be later meanwhile I share with you the photos of this camellia in Joan's garden that has taken my eye it's a small one called Night rider.

I am fortunate do to be able to get away for 10 days, left home this morning by bus, three and a half hours journey throught to Palmerston North where I was met by my sister Joan and her daughter Sue.
lunch at the French Cafe before a quick look at a couple of shops and we were on the road again. The two hour journey was broken with a stop to admire the daffodils at  Taniwha and picks some. A bunch of 30 blooms for $5 raising money for Plunket.
