Camp adventures

This past weekend saw my two treasures head off to their first cub scouts camp. The weather was grey and rainy on the saturday, but thankfully sunshine burst through on the saturday. It was so strange to have a weekend without them that I popped off to bed early instead of sitting up alone. Hubby went alone on the saturday night as well, so I visited some friends for a yummy dinner of steamed dumplings and hummingbird cake.
On sunday I went out to Grandmas house and collected some things that I thought I could use. I took some material (there was a metre of fabric that had all these old fashioned labels of australian food labels - any ideas?!) and a embroidery that she had not quite finished.. I am hoping to turn it into something wonderful (a skirt perhaps!). My aunties and mum had also found Christmas presents that she had put away for the great-grandchildren, and grandchildren, so Mitchell and Lucy has some gifts to open when they arrived home. The weather has been kinder this week and I am feeling smug about having clean, dry clothes and sheets!


  1. It's so nice to know that Spring is just around the corner. I do love winter, but I think I've had just about enough of this freezing cold...how lovely to have some time to yourself on the weekend & an early night, perfect! Thanks for popping over...

  2. Lucky you! I think a skirt sounds a great idea (of course,lol) Glad you're keeping well and cosy:)

  3. It felt like spring today and all the washing dried for a change! An embroidered skirt sounds great.
