Thanks ladies for your lovely concerns re my dad's knee operation...He is still quite "groggy" when i speak to him/visit him..

I guess that is to be expected with a BIG new KNEE operation at 86 years old..
But of course I am still really worried about him & miss his DAILY trips to my house..sitting in his chair reading the paper whilst I am on the internet nearby...& with lots of friends "tooting" their horn at him as they pass by our house..

I took him in a big bowl of STEW & heaps of BIG BANANAS on saturday...so I think he is gobbling them up!!

SOO when I am stressed...I just have TO CLEAN...(okay I clean even when NOT stressed)!!!~~~~

BUT today was one of those days where I have shifted/moved lots of stuff around..from framed photos...to my "dried roses"...

& I have started on my "MAD MAX" display...A wonderful ICONIC AUSSIE MOVIE...which is very close to my heart....

soo..thats been my day...GORGEOUS SUNNY weather...PERFECT! late AUTUMN MELBOURNE DAY~~~~~~

ps...a friend of mine has a gorgeous chic little FRENCH shop in williamstown called "THE WHITE ARTICHOKE"...she has JUST started a blog today...HER FIRST ever...& hasnt got it ALL organised as yet...

Guess who is giving her advice?? (YEP ME!!...no wonder its NOT organised!!)!!~~~

BUT her shop is SOOO Cute...FULL of GORGEOUS goodies...AT A great price...

SO it would be awesome to have a little peek at her blog...& support her over the next week or so whilst she gets it organised...& looking FAB....
encourage her with comments...as THAT is what we ALL love??....

Her shop is a delightful LITTLE goodie nestled in williamstown...& her blog is very basic at the minute..as she just rushed it this arvo...

BUT give it time...& I think you girls WILL LOVE it...AS her shop IS STOCKED full of yummy things...

xx andrea

Glad to hear your dad is progressing well Andrea. Soon enough he'll be back in his usual chair reading the paper and with a new working knee.

Your re-dos look lovely as usual.
Hugs ~ Kerryanne

Me again
meant to say, I hope your Dad starts feeling better soon. Yes of course any form of operation at the ages takes awhile to get over, I know I've been through them many times with my Dad!
Lots healthy vibes being sent to him from here
