DRIED ROSES/LAVENDER RE ARRANGEMENTS!! & DAD IS FIT & GONE HOME!! MISS HIM ALREADY!!





Hello ladies...

well dad has just zipped off home to be with mum...!! he has come along very well since he came into my care 2 weeks ago today.
OMG.he looked horrid..BUT he now has his gorgeous golden tanned face back..walking well...going back into the pool tomorrow morning...(NOT to swim his usual 3 kms mind you)...paddling I HOPE!!!!

Its funny....I now miss his presence in the little chair in my upstairs room...OHH!!
him sitting there..me doing ebay nearby..

just added a few photos of gorgeous dad in his airforce days...HE was a PILOT....handsome devil!!.......

(as usual...photos are ALL out of sequence...!!)...

PLUS i came back from down the street & dad had left me a lovely present of some "green notes"...as a THANK YOU for looking after him...OMG...I would look after both parents without question...BUT he insisted...
SOO in between all of that...I just had to get back to cleaning the house..!! YES I KNOW CLEANING AGAIN...but it is a total total mess..

SOO i have been in my DRIED FLOWERS....roses...lavender MOOD...& shifting them around the house in differing vases etc...
I put up a new GILT/black mirror in my entrance hall....put differing dried roses in front...

& HAVE been cleaning EACH rung of the stair case shown in background...BOY they get just sooo dirty...

THEN the light fitting...looks fab...BUT SOOO DUSTY...so trying to clean that as well..
Matches the leadlight in the front doors??

soo busy doing a BIG spring clean...changing things around..

Hi sweetie, just catching up with your last few posts. I'm lagging behind a bit at the moment with blogging... can't seem to keep up with you all. Anyhoo, glad to hear your dad is well enough to return home. You must have taken great care of him. Your mum will be pleased too.

That tanning cream looks interesting - I've never seen that brand before.
Chat to you soon.
Hugs ~ Kerryanne

Glad to know your Dad is comming along now.
And life is returning to his usual fitness regime....
I want to spring clean but am flat out.
Just doing the everyday clean is enough without doing extra!
Hopefully soon I can tackle other things.
Need to paint some rooms!
And dust...we have tonnes of it...The joys of living on a dusty dirt road!

Great to hear you Dad is at home with your Mum. He has recovered so well.
Love the photos especially the first one of the clivias.
Have a great weekend - rain and all
