Everyone is well.
My youngest started year 12 this week — so far so good. He has struggled with school over the years and many prayers have been said and once again prays that this year goes with as few dramas as possible.
Mild —temperate between 25-29C (77-84F)
Humid and overcast today - I do hope it rains.
I went looking for a dress to wear to my son's engagement party but couldn’t find anything that I liked – all the dresses I found were too casual, too short, wrong colour, too tight, just plain ugly . . . so I finally went on-line and found what I wanted. When buying on-line there is always the worry that it won’t sit nicely or the fabric will be horrible or I have the size completely wrong — but I am very pleased with the dress, perfect for a party on a summers evening. Just need to find some silver sandals to go with it. I just love the colour and it is one that really suits me. It is the type of dress that "hides" in-perfect figures!!
This isn't me - its from the website!!
Out and about
My theatre friends and I went out on Friday night for a dinner and a musical. The women in my little group are all lovely (we are all middle aged— well I’m not quite!!) and we always have a lovely time (non of our husbands like musicals, or theatre in general!). We went to a new restaurant and the food was just delicious. It was quick and the service was excellent.
I have started my mum’s Mother’s Day gift, coming along nicely, just need to pick up some more embroidery thread. Two books I ordered arrived yesterday and they are packed full of crafty ideas, in particular potholders – something I would like to try. My dried lavender also arrived in the post (from eBay) so now I can start to make my lavender bags (next year I will dry my own). Just don’t have enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do.
I took these the other day after a heavy rain. They are sort of cute!

Have a wonderful weekend.
