A busy day or two

Just a bit of a catch up today.
Last week was fairly busy and
 I seem to have lost my oomph.

On Tuesday I had lunch with my little mother
and then took her and a friend to do their shopping.

On Wednesday young Danny was 
taking part in the junior school triathlon.

lining up for the cycle leg

We went along to watch.
A beautiful day, very hot and sunny.

Danny was doing the cycling leg.
Twice around the playing fields and his leg was done.

That's him nearest the camera,
 heading for the final uphill stretch.
His team came in about 7th
 but he wasn't really worried about the placing.

Thursday we did a spur of the moment 
round trip to the caravan,
 about 7 hours in all, counting coffee breaks.
Another really nice day, just right for travelling,
 not too hot or too cold.

We went up to make sure we had battened
 down all the hatches, which we hadn't. 
We were fortunate we went up when we did as 
the following day the weather packed up
 and there was snow, rain and hail.

I did some shopping at the sales 
while we were up there 
and scored a very nice cardigan for just $10.
Very nice, you can't growl at that.

The rest of the week was just normal day to day stuff, 
but I have to tell you that Autumn has definitely arrived. 
Dead on time.
On March 1st it roared in and has been roaring ever since. 

I hope you're all having a good week,
and you haven't lost your oomph!


  1. So nice to see all the greenery in your part of the world.
    You always have the prettiest headers on your blog!

  2. Sounds like you had a lovely weekend. We had a summery Saturday (80's) - kids came over for pizza and hot fudge sundaes, then the temps dropped to 28 with sleet Sunday. This morning we awoke to 16 degrees and sunshine. However, the roads are icy so the schools are closed... again. Hopefully this is the last of it... but I won't count on it.

  3. How fun to be able to watch your little grandson. Mine live so very far away. How nice to take out in your caravan and shopping is always fun, especially when you find such a bargain. Thanks for popping in to see my little cow creamers! Have a nice weekend, Diana.
    Be a sweetie,
