Hello again ladies....well I am back from my weekend sojourn to visit my son in Qld...
son/hubby & I had a lovely time .... it is NOT often we can kind of ALL be together at ONE time...(well US 3!!)....
AND it is kind of a REAL rarity that myself...my hubby & BOTH boys can EVER be together as ONE anymore..maybe twice a year??
WELL i guess that what happens when your children grow up...move on...go to uni interstate etc...
BUT then again...it is a good ...great excuse to just HAVE to travel interstate !!!

anyway,....back to reality...and trying to list some more goodies on ebay..

MY mum...(who you know is 86 yo...has a stash..and I mean a stash of lovely goodies...bits & pieces...)...AND she has sent me down a TAD of her MATERIAL STASH!!..soo i have been listing that today..
from raw silk...to cotton..to john kaldor..etc ..
BUT OMG!! ironing it...measuring it out...(had to ring Christian (at work today)...to find out how many centimetres was a metre??!!!

JUST GIVE me back my OLD feet...inches...UGGGGGHHH!!!

OKAY....listing this stuff...in between cooking a YUMMY?? beef & vegie casserole...red wine...carrots...mushrooms..peas...garlic..stock..onions..brown rice...etc etc...

with MASHED potato...
ps...thought I should just add a little photo of SOOTY...mum said he was kind of fretting for me when she & dad had him over the weekend!! he wouldnt eat his TUNA...OMG..if he doesnt eat TUNA..something is definately NOT QUITE RIGHT!! BUT he is home now..& lapping up his attention!!

sooo better get back to it all...
have a great rest of the week..

xx andrea

Welcome back to Victoria! Nice you could all spend time together, I suppose you're quite close to the Airport so flying up for a visit is easy - sometimes for us down here the trip to the airport is double the amount of time as the trip to the destination!

Your Material looks fabulous! I bet it'll be sought after

I was going to cook a Beef casserole tonight - saw some chicken fillets on special so Chicken Fettuccine it is tonight instead

That fabric that your mum passed on to you is just lovely. It will be a lucky person who wins that auction.

Hi Andrea sounds like you had a great weekend. It makes me realise how lucky I am to have my children all living so close - 3 are 5 minutes away and 1 is 20 minutes away.

I'm glad you all had a great weekend together Andrea. Poor Sooty!! He misses you when you are away. Make sure you give him lots of cuddles.
