Friday Favourites
Happy Friday and Weekend Everyone.

We are back to winter here - it certainly feels like it.
It has been so cold here - but not much rain and we need more rain.
The fire is on and I am sitting here typing this on the couch under a blanket.
 Better not pack those winter woollies away quite yet !!!

We are expected to have some warmer weather this weekend.......I am looking forward to some warm
sunshine - most definitely !!!

I wanted to show you some wooden pizza and bread boards made out of old floorboards (from an 1870's cottage) that I found for Wayne's birthday a few months back. He is the official homemade pizza maker in our favourite is his blue cheese, proscuitto and pear pizza. Yumo !!!!
Don't they look fantastic !!!

 We will be working out in the garden over the weekend as I am keen to get the last of the hedging plants planted
 (photo's soon, I promise) as soon as possible before the weather heats up to much.

Have a fantastic weekend Friends.

Tuesday's Thought…..
"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard"
Winnie the Pooh

Our beautiful Sally passed away on the 5th August, six weeks ago today.........she had a sudden and very severe stroke.
Our gorgeous girl didn't suffer at all and
the last thing she heard was my voice telling her that we love her so very much, and now she could go and chase as many sticks and balls, hoses and lawn mowers, whipper snippers and weeds, spades and shovels (she loved digging holes for plants in the garden), brooms and vacuum cleaners as she wants. As well as rounding up the sheep, cows or chooks, and chasing the quad bike up and down the paddocks with all her boundless energy and enthusiasm for ever and a day.

As you could imagine, it hasn't been the best few weeks for us.
I haven't felt like posting about Sal (or anything else for that matter - so I have lots to catch you up on in the next few weeks) before now, she was a huge part of our lives. For fourteen and half years she was my shadow - just about everywhere I went she it will take a long time to get used to her not being around.
