I have NOTHING on today!

But, I'm sure I will find something to do.

I've got some good news... my back feels almost 100% better.  My shoulder down to my elbow is feeling 50% better, it's stopped throbbing which is bloody awesome.  And my hand is also 100% better, so looking good for a total 'all better' soon.

 ABOVE:  Coco in her walking harness.  It's so much nicer than her collar for walking in.

ABOVE:  Freshly groomed and looking gorgeous.

She's such a lovely wee girl... who's in for a massive shock on Saturday!  PUPPY!
Hee hee... she's going to either love her or hate her... wonder which way it's going to go?

Right... moving on, I shall get some washing on before deciding what to do with the day.
Sewing might just be on the cards.


MIA obviously.
Got a massive headache around 10 am this morning, so took myself off to bed to try and sleep it off with the help of some pain killers.

Doesn't happen often now days, thank goodness!

Did help, woke up a couple of hours later and got the washing done.

Got dinner sorted out:  Mutton chops in the oven.

Then into the sewing room for a little while.

ABOVE:  This is the view from my sewing room.  Across the way is my neighbour's gorgeous garden.  They have planted trees to attract the native birds.

ABOVE: I got to watch this Tui for ages today.  The other day there were FIVE Tui in that tree! 
They can be very noisy birds... but lovely to see and watch while I'm sewing.

 ABOVE:  Talking of sewing... I have got some borders on, and am now working on the two-way border.
It's going to take some time to get it done.

 ABOVE:  I took a stroll in the garden, my blue tree is almost completely covered in blooms now.  Utterly gorgeous.

So... a very quiet day ... and a quiet night too.  Looking forward to Coronation Street, then bed.


  1. Coco such a beautiful dog. I bet you're excited to bring Marley home. Can't wait to see how they get on. How's Keera? Is she enjoying her holiday?

    Hi and she bred gorgeous puppies too! George's Mum.

  3. Coco looks so cute, I can see why the harness would be much more comfortable for her too.

  4. Awwww that's a lovely trio of photos coco, Tui, blue flowers. So pleased to see the sewing going on we had a glorious day here too.

  5. Oh lucky you having the Tuis out of your window.
