A little bit of this and that!

Well I had a very quiet weekend as Husband and Son went to the V8 racing at Willowbank so I indulged myself completely by drawing ( I think the Christmas Fairy has finally left my head....not complaining mind but I will miss it until it comes to visit again) a little bit of stitching, lovely music and finishing a lovely book I bought 2nd hand at a little store when we visited Brunswick Heads. It was such a great story. It's called "The Olive Sisters" by Amanda Hampson and is set in Australia...really loved it.
All my scritchings
A little stitching
A lot of reading.....beautiful book!
My friend Ann left lots of bits and pieces with me when she moved....some are for me....some are to go to other homes. But amongst it all were a trilogy of books set in Victoria in Canada. So I had to have a bit of a squizz at them and now of course I have started the first one and can't put it down. No wonder I never get any housework done! But it's that kind of weather...AGAIN!
I am sure I have been transported to some other place that is NOT "Sunny Queensland" and I didn't realise it at the time. I am now 100% convinced that I have finally turned into a bon fide 'weather whinger'. Types I previously detested. But I have never felt like this ever in my life before and I am sure I will need an operation soon to remove my dressing gown. Last weekend I thought we were heading in the right direction you know sunny day, light breeze.. but No just a tease to get me all excited. I NEED sunshine!!! Can you tell I have also been neglecting my yoga mat at all?
Well I feel better now that I have got that off my chest and I AM going to a yoga class today...woohoo!
A new woman may present herself later today. Won't that be a blessing for myself and everyone around me.
Have a great Monday everyone.
