 The Hamilton Gardens is a place we love to visit, and today we are going to look at the newest attraction:

ABOVE:  A new 'garden' in the collection.  There's quite a few 'themed' gardens to see, and more coming.

So, Stew and I will go and check out the newest one.  We'll probably end up having lunch there as well.

ABOVE:  The Card Night obligatory photo.  I had a good time last night.  Next Card Night is here at our house.

Right, that's about all for now.  I'll be back later no doubt.

12.38 pm.  The new garden is very lovely. A kind bloke took a photo of Stew and I:

ABOVE: So nice to have one of both of us. 

More garden photos now we are home:

ABOVE:  The new Themed Egyptian Garden was very beautiful.  Very well done.

We had lunch at the cafe within the Gardens.  It took an hour from being served our drinks to the last of the food!  They were rushed off their feet in there, and obviously underestimated how many people would be there visiting the gardens.

We ended up bringing food home for later.

Now... quiet relax for a while.

And just like that... I lay down and fell asleep!  Had a good hour long nap.
Cooking dinner in a minute, Honey Mustard Chicken over noodles.

I'm over these quiet days with minimal comments!  Blogger is to blame I'm sure... cos you fullas wouldn't like IGNORE me would ya?

Won't matter for much longer.  I've got an ANNOUCEMENT tomorrow.

Our dinner was rather YUM!  I coated the chicken pieces in flour/egg/flour and it's such a good way to keep the meat moist and tender.  Messy, but good.

Right, I'm engrossed in Coronation Street... time to bugger off.
Catch ya tomorrow.

    They look like fabulous gardens to visit. Sus

  21. We had to travel to pickup a new garden shed. Drove about 1 3/4 hour to pick it up from the town it was ‘delivered to’. Couldn’t find the business so hubby rang them Oh we no longer have a branch there so we had to travel another half hour. Then to leave that town we got held up by long roadworks. It was mentally draining. Thank goodness we had leftovers and I didn’t have to cook.
