some of my favourite things

These pics are some that I took recently when we went for a walk in our neighbourhood. Some are taken from my kitchen window. The area has lots of eaucalyptus and other indiginous trees. 

I have had a lovely week, some stitching, some babysitting, a special dinner with my husband, a visit from our beloved granddaughter and I have also managed to paint the dining room. 
Our grand daughter has been here for two days and will stay a couple more days.  Tonight she planned and prepared a lovely meal for her grand dad who has been away for 5 days.

The highlight was this delicious trifle.  What a treat.  We feel so pleased that at 14 Ally still loves to come and stay with us.

Oooh that trifle looks good! I bet there is none left!
Ally loves staying with you no doubt because you make her feel loved and special. What a lovely time you must have together.

I always love your collaged photos Dian. That lovely yellow eucalyptus flower is so pretty.

My goodness, congratulations to Ally on her beautiful trifle. I am sure Noel would be down in a flash if he knew that was on the menu!! You are indeed blessed to have such a level-headed teenager in your midst.
