Long Weekend Loveliness

We have had a beautifully relaxing weekend this Anzac day long weekend - the only flaw in it was that I forgot to take my camera away with me and so I am unable to share it with you visually!

We went to out beach house on the NSW south coast and didn't do too much at all except:

Drink Tea
Listen to beatles and abba and simon and garfunkle records (yes... records)
Play with baby
eat beautiful fresh seafood
Visit beautiful friends
Appreciate life....

The we came home to freezing Canberra and we wished we had stayed there another night!

We visitied some friends while we were down there and I had not been to their place before. Oh MY! it is my dream house. Georgously light and sunny, high up on the hill surrounded by bushland and with ocean views. The grass was green, the chickens were running free and the horses were frolicking. It was so stunning!

I have been trying to teach myself to knit and crochet and I am not having much luck with either. The knitting is coming along much faster than the crochet - at least it is good until I try to follow a pattern and then nothing seems to look like it should. So then I rip it all out and start again.

Another social week of visiting, drinking tea and sewing coming up this week for us.

sounds like my kind of weekend!

Come along to SnB some time - you'll get lots of help with both if you're struggling!
