Lovely photos Cookie.
Judy, Bunnings sausage sizzle is a family joke here. One day DH said we were going out for lunch and  guess where we went.  :) :)

LOL Margaret, your DH has a great sense of humour. They were particularly nice this time so one was not enough, they were cooked by some Greek people. Theyíre a great fundraiser and the volunteers are very nice people.
Iíve been to gym this morning and now I have the mobile mechanic here.

That is exactly where my DH would take me for lunch>

It was quite nice in the sun this afternoon so I decided to prune the roses.  They actually belong to the neighbours but I usually do them.  The house next door has been empty for 12 months and we hardly ever see the owners.   I think we have renters arriving in a couple of weeks.  I hope they are quiet people.

A close friend turned 75 so we picked him and his wife up in the EJ and took them out for coffee. None of us eat cake but decided to share one. He chose a vanilla slice and the lovely cafť cut it beautifully into 4, put each bit on a plate with a dob of cream and piece of strawberry. We will definitely be going back there.

What a great cafe .
We just managed to put so much into a day ! DS had his flu vac , he is fine now , i thought possible appendix! We just seemed to go everywhere. Office works ,cotton on for tracksuit pants DS .. then please mum go in the opposite direction to a Bonds outlet for a few things ,... that lead to the shop assistant and I both not looking where we were going and crashed into the menís  undie rack set the whole rack of undies and me flying , all ok but my back was out all day . Lunch yes let's sit for awhile and re group . NGV Alexander Caldwell exhibition for DD !! Orthotics appointment late arvo for both and I got my feet done too ! Kids Mum it's dark outside and we have no dinner ! Truly more to do yes go to DM to walk her dog , this is an old Hungarian Vishla she waited by the window for an hour for DD to walk her . Had a glass of wine with DM . So I admitt I was snappy tom by now . Bed looked very good at this point . Bring on tomorrow...

K Atie, I get exhausted just reading what you manage to do in a day.  By the time I have finished the weekly shop I need a nanna nap :)

I am truly sorry to hear about your back, K Atie, I really am ... but I freely admit I had a good chuckle at your adventures with the men's undies rack!  You should see if the shop has it on video and get a copy for a home movies night  :D

KAtie you are so very busy. I also had a chuckle about the undies rack.
Many years ago I took Mum to buy  new outfit for Dad's funeral. I rushed ahead and explained to the shop lady. We had my adult brother and DD (who was an adult too) with us. Mum eventually selected an outfit and DD and brother said "quick, let's get out of here!"  Down the road they explained that they had changed all the clothing on 2 racks from sorted according to size, to sorted according to colour. Talk about brats.
It did give a good laugh though.

On a glorious day my Probus headed off on a mystery tour and we ended up in Hahndorf, we never tire of that tourist town in the Adelaide Hills. We all bought up big at the Beerenberg factory before descending on the townshipís shops.

K Atie, I also feel exhausted reading what you get up to.  Glad your mum and DS are both ok. Look after that back of yours.
Our DS in Melbourne has been quite ill with the flu, even though he has had the injection.  GS also Iíll, but only a cold. I think the kids get run down at the end of term 2. We have to make an effort to keep away from crowds and anyone with a cold or flu as Rals immune system is low.
Judy, love the Adelaide Hills villages. Your Probus club is certainly active.  There are several around Ballarat.  The better ones are full.  No new members.

I love Hahndorf and the Beerenberg factory too Judy. The Adelaide Hills have a magic about them.

They had some simmer sauces this time cookie so I bought 4 different types. Iíve not used  simmer sauces before but Iím a lazy cook these days and Iím sure they will be much better than the cheap supermarket varieties.
