Time to relax


We had a good Christmas – celebrated with my family for lunch and Mal’s for tea -both at Sewjourn.  The studio was ideal for fitting everyone in – quite a few trips back to the cottage for ‘forgotten’ items but that was OK.  My brother-in-law did try to set the place on fire while cooking the potatoes and pumpkin in the Weber but everything escaped unharmed and the spuds had a nice ‘smoked’ flavour!





Since the big day we have just been taking it easy……..have done lots of weeding and parts of the garden are looking lovely – still lots of plans and ideas (and work needed) for the rest though!



Mal’s cleaned out the workshop/storage area…….


And been for a couple of bike rides.


I’ve spent quite a few hours here reading this………….



(great book by the way – highly recommended!)


And the girls have been to the Lancefield Pool every day – sometimes there is hardly anyone else there so it’s almost like having your own pool. (Almost!)



But without a doubt LOTS of hours have been spent playing this………….



Most of all though it’s just nice to be here all together and enjoy this beautiful place without pressure of having to renovate, paint and be in a hurry to get things done!  (There will always be more things to do though…………………)

    To my defence – in the works of Billy Joel:

    I didn’t START the fire,
    It was already burning,
    and the spuds needed turnin’

    Always happy to help. 😉
