Tuesday Trip…

I am still around… life is starting to settle down a wee bit.. we are still busy on the farm but are nearing the end of calving… so soon I may get to spend some time sewing… Unfortunately our worker has had to resign for health reasonsSad smileso between myself and our children we are taking on his job… DH has made a roster… so between three of us we will share the job of milking… and whatever else needs doing… so between home schooling and the farm and house work I have had little time for sewing…

I did manage a quick trip to New Plymouth on Tuesday(I had to do a job for DH and pick up some meat from the butchers) so I snuck into say Hi to Mum and Roz and Roz cute little shop…here  if you are ever driving past make sure you call in and say Hi you wont regret it, it is a fabulous little shop and Roz is such a sweetie too…

And I couldn’t go there and not buy anythingWinking smile I bought another treasure for my hutch which I will share when I change my hutch for spring! In fact I have been picking up a few little things for my spring display lately…
