I'm back - with my first semester of studies over and I must say I am feeling a little relieved. The study has been great, but it consumes much time and many thoughts. It's nice to have a break.
Last night I went to see this band at the Gov. They were absolutely fantastic live and The Gov is such a great space to see live bands. It's been a long time since I've been to see a concert like this and I had times when I felt a little old but it was great.
I love music that makes me feel happy - like this band does.
I'm hoping to start sewing again soon - I have to make some gifts for Christmas and I want to make a new skirt as well. Now that I'm not studying it should be easier to get behind the machine, but with the silly season starting up there's little time!!! There's a party every weekend these days.....
Hope you are all happy and well

In the holidays I finally finished his quilt (it's taken about a year) and he is very, very happy with it.

Spring has sprung here in Adelaide and we are enjoying the most beautiful spring weather - and I'm delighting in how fresh everything looks - but I already miss the rain!

Below is what I plan to start on the weekend. I'm thinking a log cabin quilt, or something similar. It will be lovely to get behind a sewing machine again - it's been far too long!

Changes have occurred in my home.....big changes, exciting changes but time consuming changes. After almost 8 years of being a stay at home mum, I've decided to study with the view of one day getting a job I love. So, a few weeks ago I started doing library studies and I'm absolutely loving it. I sit in my lectures and I feel like I've come home. Library studies brings together my admin skills, my computer skills, my love of finding information and my passion for books altogether in one lovely job. I'm really enjoying it but I'm also finding it very difficult to get my head around being a part time student and a full time mum and so I haven't made anything lately or done any blogging :(
On another note - look what I got for my birthday.......
Isn't she beautiful. David bought it for me from the Classic Bicycle Shop and it's a bike based on the ones made in the 20's, 30's and 40's. It doesn't have gears (you should see me trying to get up the hills around here - hahaha). It's just a beautifully simple rather elegant ladies bike. I try to practice riding every day as it's hard going, but once I get a bit fitter I know it will be a pleasure to ride ;-)
Well, must go, study beckons and as it is a beautiful day I think I will do my reading outside!
Hope you are all happy and well

My life is a soup kitchen.
There’s nothing fancy,
Just wholesome goodness
That warms you on the coldest days
And fills you with a deep satisfaction
That no fancy meal could ever do
So on that note, I would like you to join me
For my soup kitchen 40th birthday celebration
Bring a beanie
Bring some fingerless gloves
Bring your good company
Because you are a good friend
You are a pea soup kind of friend
and I want to celebrate with you.
On Saturday 1st of August
From 4.00pm till later
I wish I could invite all you guys too - but distance prevents this, so have a bowl of soup this Saturday night, and think of me!!

The following day I had everything ready to do some quilting and then the boys decided they wanted to sew. In so many ways I really wanted to be selfish and tell them to go off and amuse themselves but I just couldn't. I love the thought that my kids want to be creative and I strongly believe I have to encourage that where possible. So, no sewing for me on Thursday............

Those of you from South Australia might know Pt Wakefield. It's a petrol station mecca and it's the last stop before Adelaide. I've been through it so many times - but I never realised there was more to it - just a long strip of petrol stations with lots of trucks and cars. Karen moved there quite recently and she is still finding her feet there but she mentioned a few times that she had found a happy spot so we decided to have a picnic lunch there.
One of the best things about Pt Wakefield is the bakery - yummo! We got pies and pasties and juice and sat down in this beautiful little oasis.
After lunch the troops had a bit of a walk and then it was back to Karen's for a coffee and a chat before making our way back home again.
You know it's been said many times before, but the simple things in life are often the best!
