...random jottings on what may be happening in my life at any particular time, not necessarily anything earth shattering, just ordinary every day stuff; and photographs, mainly taken by me, my GKB and other family members as we travel through this journey called life...
but seems to happen all to often in today's world.
I hope that doesn't sound bitter, I'm not, but I am a bit tired.
He is doing well but it has meant trips back and forth to the hospital. It also means we don't do much at the moment so I am starting to feel a bit house/small town bound.
Yesterday we drove a young lad down to his camp at the Lake and that was fun. Good to get away for an hour or so.
And spring is just around the corner. I think.
We are getting heaps of waxeyes at the feeder
and I've had to make more.
And we've been to watch both the grandsons playing footy. The youngest just started playing this season and is still playing kick and chase but the older one has been playing rules for a couple of years now and his mother tells me he is a striker (whatever that means). Ignorant granny. I don't know the rules but I love to watch, it is such a skillful game and even the little kids have some good skills.
Anyway, that's enough from me for now. I have to go and get tea ready so that I can go and join in a quiz night. I hope they are not expecting too much from me, as I say, my brain is mush just now. But I could answer a question about the new baby prince, I know his birth weight, but then so does everyone else, haha.
These are some of the photo's I took inside St Paul's Anglican Cathedral in Dunedin when I went in to see the annual Flowers of Praise festival earlier in the year.
The Cathedral Church of St. Paul the Apostle
Looking from just inside the main doors towards the altar.
The great multi coloured cross was made in the 60's or 70's and made of perspex - a controversial decision at the time. It is suspended over the altar by chains.
Looking back to the main doors from the front pews. The stained glass windows are beautiful with the light coming through them.
Some of the side windows and some of the floral displays. The cathedral is quite lovely with the white stone and beautiful stained glass. Once upon a time you could go up to the tower on the left hand side (looking at it) and had a good view of the city, but I'm not sure if they allow it now.
Just two of the many floral displays on show, elegant and fun.
