My MIL used to say “if wishes were fishes we would all cast our nets in the sea”
I think she was trying to tell us that we are already so fortunate, and that hard work was character building! She was a good stick, she loved her family and was a great mum and grandmum. She died too early unfortunately, but one of her great loves was travelling, so i think i would like to travel the world and see as much as i can. As soon as the kids are off. Or at least able to drive around – one down one to go. These are a few of the more well known cities i would love to see, which are on my wish list.
On the weekend my daughter had a cruise on the Brisbane river with a boy she has met, he is smart and very nice,with a lovely family, i would marry her off but she is only 14! Anyway we went to see the valentino retrospective on display in Brisbane, it was fab, no photos were allowed unfortunately but the brochure has a couple on them, i didnt buy the book as it was too heavy to lug around the city.
This is my little girls dress, not valentino but just as pretty esp on her, i forgot the camera duh! so this is it for now.
This is a lovely iceberg rose that i bought recently, i had it out by the back door, but moved it to the patio next to my Adirondack chair, its my fav spot to sit in the early morning sun, if im not working. I also got out my fabrics from my quilting to see what could be done with them, I have to finish the binding on one, and am in the process of constructing another, so decided to start planning another one, which i hope to have finished to send to my sister in law for her birthday in sept, in my spare time! The quilting is a welcome diversion and i dont have to think too much.
Its the start of the week and i have decided to pretend i dont have anything else to do!
