That will be fun Judy. We are having a massive clean up. Trying to throw out heaps (but the bin is full now) The place isnít/wasnt messy but just needs stuff sorted through. DH is doing outside and Iím attempting inside. When DD shifted home a couple of weeks ago we collected more furniture and bits and pieces.

Do you have a Buy Nothing group in your suburb cookie?  All my culling over the last couple of years has gone to members of this group or the local op shop.

Yes we do Judy. Quite a bit of stuff from DD's house went on that.
We went and picked up all the air con bits this morning. We took my ute and a trailer and still had to make 2 trips. It seems as though we may have to wait until January to get it all installed.

Iíve got a local art session this morning, itís set up periodically for social connectivity and I love it. Sometimes Iím working and miss it, but not today. Itís freezing rain here, pouring and only two degrees.
Later Iím back on Christmas sorting and house so I can go away next weekend with everything ready for the family invasion on the 16th, the day I get back. Theyíll already be here when Iím back. The cot is already up and beds made. Just more tidying for toddler safety and the tree to go up.
Have a good day everyone x

With the temperatures you have got over your way at the moment, Cookie, waiting until January for the air con installation will be challenging.

We have had ours in for just a week now and the difference is fantastic ... an expensive addition to the house, but worth it.

DD had her party on the weekend and it was a great success. Lots of lovely friends and family . It was great to meet her uni friends and Prato (Italy uni cohort ) group. All her work for the night , like signs designed by her looked fabulous. There was a guest book with Polaroid cameras , they took photos and put into the book with a message . Photo boards of all her life , making sure everyone that was there was in it mostly. The cake was amazing , looked beautiful and was actually delicious, cutting a heart shaped double layer with lots of buttercream icing proved to be a tab messy but fine . We all had a heart night and not too late for us . DD and a few friends went out after . The food was great a grazing table and canapťs . Little crispy samosas, and mushroom risotto balls , chicken and bow buns , vegetarian rice paper rolls , French fries , bruschetta and sliders . They are the lot . Sunday was a slow start . We had a late breakfast of croissants . The boys eventually went home . Itís becoming a special time when we are together just no other distractions. Not much to eat that day as we were all full . DD and did a day of liking at shops a little bit of shopping, Dentist for DD . Visited my DN . DD cooked pasta for dinner .

Sounds like a great night K Atie. No-one plans a special party better than the person the party is for, todayís young ones know exactly what they want. Well done to your DD and all the work/planning she put into it.

It all sounds very exciting KAtie. I'm glad it went well.
DD has her birthday on the 31st of December. I never know what we should get her. I think last year was a massive Lego car to make that moves using your phone. (she loves them). The other night she commented on a Turtle pendant she saw. So I travelled over the river it and bought one for her. I know she will love it and the birthday problem is solved.

KAtie, it sounds like your DD party was a success.

I had a visit to the dentist this afternoon.  All good , just needed a clean.

Over the past few days I have been cleaning some of the windows and washing curtains.  Also started going through some of the cupboards and making piles of items to go to the op shop.

The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

We had a storm go over last night. The wind was wild driving the rain. There is another coming but I donít think it will reach us. People were walking their dags in the storm. The dogs didnít seem to mind.
