The Weekend That Was

Monday has arrived once again and last weekend  was quite a mixed bag. I mentioned I was going for lunch with the Yoga girls out at Jimboomba at a little cafe we like. We had High Tea as we did last year. It was great for all of us to be together and we even had one of our original group Trish join us too which was just lovely. So we were quite a cheery little bunch.
Thats me way down the far end playing Mother at the head of the table. We certainly didn't go hungry either.
It was all low-fat too....
There was an extra little bonus to the day for me. I was early and went for a wander and discovered right across the lane way from the cafe was a 2nd hand bookshop and of course I had to go in.
It is called "That Book Place" and was chocked full of preloved books and they were so reasonable in price.  If you are ever out Jimboomba way pop in and have a browse. Several jumped into my basket to be taken home. 2 Cathy Kelly books (I have been wanting to read her for ages) 1 Monica McInerney and the best bit was I found one of my all time favourite books "My Place" by Australian author Sally Morgan. I had been lent this book when I first read it but I have long wanted to have it as a permanent amongst my collection of books as I believe it is a really special Australian book. I am looking forward to revisiting "My Place". Have any of you read it?
The other thing this weekend is that our eldest Grandson had a little graduation ceremony from Kindy as he is going to be a big School boy next year ( it seems like he only just arrived here on the planet) My Husband went along and said they were all very cute and enjoyed their party no end.
So cute....
A big hug with Mum.
I have my Christmas Memory tree up but it isn't decorated yet as I like to take my time and enjoy it as it is my favourite. So after I do battle with a well known communications company this morning I shall do it.
I thought I would leave you with another gorgeous graphic from Roses Petals from Heaven which is depicting another favourite of mine and yours by what you tell me.
Enjoy your day wherever you are.
Blessings Michelle xxx
