How lovely to both Chookie. Enjoy.

I wasn't planning on cooking today but DD just rang and needs something for morning tea tomorrow and DH tells me he is nearly out of bread. I let him tell me as I eat SD. So now I can have fun making those.

DIL has asked me to make her another Christmas scrub top for work so it's back to the sewing machine for me.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

We went over to Cherokee yesterday to see if the Rhododendrons that Ral had planted have survived. He planted 70+ . They were looking very good.  The house was under heavy fog.  We had forgotten that this was typical of the area.
We stopped for coffee and bumped into friends and they and we were happy to reconnect. Today we are recovering.

That would have been lovely Chookie.
I had my hair cut today. The appointment was for 12. DD had said I wouldn't get a park but I managed too, however there was so many people there. I left as soon as I had my hair cut.

A trip down memory lane Chookie, a bonus to reconnect with old friends.

Today I cleaned out my spice drawers, so many of them out of date and as Iíve been told not to eat spicy food nowadays it was quite easy to get rid of them even if they were in date. Iíve reduced 6 very full drawers of spices down to 3 with room to move. The 3 empty drawers are now full of pasta packets and containers plus dried fruit.  From there I moved into my plastic container cupboards and have boxed up a load for the op shop - why do I have several lids but not the containers to go with them I wonder. They canít get lost in the dishwasher like socks do in the washing machine!  Next job was a pantry clean out of items I know I will not use, I did a bit of a reshuffle there too and itís much tidier with so much removed. Final job was washing all the plastic containers that Iíd emptied and with my earlier work there was plenty of room to store all those now empty containers.

Lovely Chookie. Well done Judy . Busy day , cleaned a bathroom ( this involved up a ladder , yes I was very careful) that need a lot of attention, I am super tiered and famished tonight . Itís crazy in Melbourne think everyone is out shopping Black Friday sales . Family at home DH had to cook chops and veg ! Kittens growing, they are now walking in their bed !! What a difference two days make . Nearly time to handle them , they are hissing at DH .

What a day, Chookie, lots of memories at Cherokee.  Good to see the rhododendron doing well ... what colours are they?

Isn't it satisfying to have  good clearance, Judy, well done - it sounds like a full-on day.

I came up to Guildford on the train last night as DH came up on Thursday night so that he could clear up the dead poplar tree we had arranged to get dropped during the week because it was a bit too close to the house.  A big job but he managed to clear all the wood away.  We will burn off some of the excess today and keep some of the better wood for burning at home.  The poplar was only standing because it was totally covered in ivy so a lot of the wood we are putting on the bonfire today will be very smoky.  Must remember to let the CFA know what is going on!!

Although backbreaking work for me Marina, it was so worth it by the end of the afternoon. I keep opening the doors and drawers to admire my work LOL. Only problem with those sort of changes is finding the items next time I need them but with less stock it might be easier to spot them in their new area. Today Iím going to work on my crockery, casserole dishes and party items, I need to cull heavily in that area.  You have a lot on your plate for the weekend, it sounds as if DH has done well since heís been up there. It certainly wonít be a relaxing weekend for you.

Katie Iím always telling my friends they shouldnít be climbing ladders but I occasionally donít listen to my own advice. I deadheaded 2 climbing roses at DDís place recently and cut back the height to prevent it climbing onto the roof.  I did have a spotter with me one of those days but not for the second one I did the next day. What cute little things baby kittens are, what colour are yours?

You are certainly very industrious. Iím not. Itís been 36 here today. A bit hard to take. We have a run tomorrow into a paddock, where they will hold a car gymkhana. I hope the paddock has trees.

Take a hat and a brolly just in case itís a treeless paddock cookie.  Have fun.
