Buzz................

Whose that flitting flying through the week, whose that flitting flying through the day... It's me!!! I feel like a very busy bee this week, lot's happening and it's all good!  We have painted the ceiling in the entrance and laundry ready for the new lino to be laid today.  We actually had the lino laid about 6 months ago, but the workmanship left a lot to be desired...





I know some of you will be cringing and wondering What???? But yes this is what our new flooring looked like when it was finished! Pretty much every corner was messed up, now I'm not into naming names but I am just thankful that they are prepared to replace this. Now as we are only sharemilkers on this farm the house isn't really ours so we didn't get a choice in the original lino but this time I did! Because this is the area where everyone comes in and out our current lino shows every bit of dirt, dust etc. So this time I've chosen something a little darker to hide the grime.  Lol!  Lets hope this time the workmanship is of a better quality!  


I tried to take some sneak peak photo's of my new design I'm working on, but the weather is so grotty and I just couldn't take a decent photo without showing too much detail, but I am really enjoying the design process, I can't wait to show you all. 


Last night DD1 and I went to a hens party, there were maybe 30 of us, and boy was it fun! Sorry no photo's I was too busy laughing!  But I just have to share one of the games we played... We each had our handbags, and a list of items was called out and if we had that item in our bag we were awarded several points...  'Who has a mirror?'  only 2 people. 'Who has a cell phone?' nearly everyone. 'Who has a hairbrush?' well one young lady pulls out a meat tenderizer!!! I kid you not, 'Will this do' she says! I'm am still not sure exactly why but anyway! 'Who has a pair of scissors?' and the same young lady pulls out a pocket knife 'Does this count?'  Hmm remind me not to walk down a dark alley with her!  She is such a humourous young lady and yes those items were actually hers! But the bride to be had a lovely evening, and I got to catch up with my bridesmaid, she is back from England(where she is currently living) as her brother is the groom. Next weekend is our 16th wedding anniversary so it is so nice to have her back for a wee while.

Because of the upcoming wedding this weekend I have another niece coming to stay today, it will be wonderful to have her for a few days, her family are leaving to live in Perth at the end of the year so we are going to miss her/them heaps! A nephew is coming for the weekend as well, and maybe another couple of extra's, we may have to get the tent out to accommodate everyone!  But I can't wait It's going to be a great weekend!
