Welcome to all you lovely ladies that have visited my blog. I am am so happy and honoured. I just love how visiting someone's blog can lift your heart at the end of a hard day and how wonderful it is to receive comments when you take the time to post yourself. Its also fun to take photos and begin to compose a blog in your head as you go through your day. Which is what I did today.
Well today started a little late, sleeping in after a late night, D.H. left early to go on a caving overnight trip. I had cakes to bake (for an engagement party) and was glad to have the house to myself to do it without distraction. I had to pop out and get some more sultanas in the late afternoon and took a few photos,
The duck crossing sign near the beginning of our road - and YES ducks do cross our street from one hanging swamp to another.
As I went down to the village to buy sultanas, the mist was rolling in, the weather had turned during the afternoon.
The mist, the road works (the highway widening) and railway in the background.
A close-up of one of the flowers on my 'vintage' bathroom curtains. I made them originally for the laundry door at our last house, from a vintage fabric find in an opportunity shop.
the pink roses on a pale blue background - they are finished with blue & white gingham at hem
Daylight is fading outside and you can see the shadows of the window frame behind
My pink mixing bowl - a reproduction of the sort my Mother has - I remember her mixing the Christmas cake in it.
The mixture before being spooned into the baking tins, lovely fruitcake
