At least the recent rain has brought the green back to our garden and we have a green lawn again .
It has a way to go to recover completely but it's not bad for only 10days !
We've had a quiet day lazing the afternoon away watching a movie ( sometimes with our eyes closed I confess ! ).
So next week it's back to normality.
The house needs a thorough clean after the Christmas / New Year laziness and the diet will be back in force after the backsliding that has been happening around here.
So since nothing much has been going on aound here I thought I'd show off some more of my SIL's achievements.
She has been putting her creative talents into knitting tea cosies.
Here are a few whimsical ones she has created..............
decorated with pink flowers
topped with knitted sandwiches !
topped with mice and cheese !
Note the mouse's rear end and tail sticking out of the cosy !....
and finally, my favourite, a nest of chooks
Oh, do you call them chooks or is that Aussie slang ? ( for hens )
