alan and meryl are here after housesitting for two weeks.
it's been perfect to have house guests (aka old mates) for my first days at home
we've had dinner at the pub, lunch at trentham winery, lots of home cooking and
scrabble, and sitting on the river bank. it's pretty windy right now though, the only
thing that spoils the outdoors here.
gail's arriving for the weekend so my birthday will be celebrated in style albeit a day
early, then janet and bevan are due with my printing press (hopefully).
the guys are coming today to do the last things in the first bathroom, and good guys are
delivering a new washing machine. it's all happening here :0)
the persimmon tree, planted for cal on the day he was born, is in full leaf and i'm
surprised to see it has about 15 little green persimmon flowers starting.
good old alan has been putting up some light fittings for me. when he took down the old flush light
this is what he found inside, two petrified mice, poor little buggars must've climbed in through the
hole in the ceiling and couldn't get out.
|the new light, found at the collectables shop in marnoo|
|we had dinner at the royal on tuesday with all the wentworth crew - the |
serviettes looked like birds or butterflies or orchids. pretty anyway
|recipe for the banana cake meryl made, it was lovely, crunchy on top and soft and|
fluffy inside, we've eaten it as cake, and as heated pudding with ice cream
|EARRINGS i bought in melbourne made by claire taylor, her shop is in smith st near the gertrude st intersection and if you get a chance go and see the beautiful things she makes.|
alan and meryl and i went to the tip shop yesterday after a leisurely lunch at trentham winery. i came home with a $5 dining table with extensions !! and meryl had a whole grab bag of goodies
