We have just had a few days of family holiday going home to my Husbands’ family and catching up with old memories. IMG_4958

This is the first time we have all been away together over the seas for a couple of years so it was a nice 5 day break. I treated Miss M and Tessie to Wicked. Fantastic show, not the best seats but a great day was had. Miss M and Dad then went to the Semi final of the great Cats (Geelong AFL footy team) vs St Kilda at the MCG (the MCG for our overseas friends is a great Melbourne icon of the cricket and Australian Rules Football world.) And the Cats were victorious – yayyy they are going for back to back premiers after a drought of about 44 years. Unless you live here you would probably find it difficult to understand AFL Footy fever – a bit like the World Soccer cup or the Baseball in the USA I would think.



Yes they got wet!


Dinner with cousins


and dinner with more cousins. We don’t see them very often so for Matilda this was a first time memory for her -she now knows what a cousin is although I am not sure she understands where the uncles fit in.

Family is special and living across a stretch of water on an island restricts us a little from having regular contact with much of our family. But we think of them often and the internet is wonderful for keeping in touch.

ON another note Terry of Patchwork by Sea in Adelaide sent in some photos of their finished NPNT quilt- yet another colourway and look, they have done a great job don’t you think?


I also found some pics of a lovely soft version here. They are meeting weekly for a coffee and to stitch their blocks. What fun.

hugs for today, Helen
