Hello dear blog friends, I hope you are well and happy. All is good here at our place. The vege patch is overflowing with tomatoes (I am on to my second batch of green tomato pickles), pumpkin and strawberries. Do you like this amazing conjoined berry?! Along with the bountiful garden come thousands of bugs which are a bit of a bother but part of country life. I have been working at the bank as usual but have Monday off so I am greatly enjoying my long weekend. I went to Melbourne a couple of weekends ago and had dinner with mum and sister Julie which was lovely. Shopping was also on the agenda with my dear friend Sally. I bought a new wallet and handbag along with a few other bits and pieces. Ah that's my shopping bug taken care of for a little while! It was great to get away for a couple of days. Not much other news from me so I'll sign off now. Best wishes, Clare ♥

Sunday drive

Hello friends. On the weekend we went for a little drive to the Grampians to see the landslide. It was a lovely day, we took a few back roads and saw some beautiful scenery. There is still a lot of water in the swamps and creeks and plenty of road damage too. Now that I am working full time the weekends are very precious and go by so quickly! I am heading to Melbourne next weekend to catch up with mum for her birthday, as well as my sister Julie and friend Sally. Hopefully I will also find some time for shopping! Well cheerio until next time. Best wishes to you all. ♥
