Weekly Winners : 6 – 12 September

Weekly Winners : 6 – 12 September

There doesn’t seem to be a dull moment in our lives at the moment!!! I have so many photos it was difficult to choose a couple for Weekly Winners !!!!

Sooo … will start with a bunch of roses I bought to brighten up the dining room …

Sunday was spent with children and grandchildren at Jeanette’s house – here’s our little wild child who has thankfully recovered enough to come home from a weekend in hospital … never a dull moment for this little guy !!!


Our cutie pie, Erin .. blowing her whistle …

… showing me her pigtails …


… and having a special moment with Grampa …


Chandelier in the Freemason’s Hall ….

Back into my garden….. well, what would a Weekly Winner’s be without shots in my garden ..

Update on the indigenous Blue Squill …..

…. which eventually starts looking like this …


… and a frilly palm tree flower ….

… and the Clivia at our driveway gate …


and lastly the fresh new green growth of the Silver Birch .. peek-a-boo .. nice to see you too !

One of our usual visitors to the garden, the Hadeda, decided to rest near the pool ..

On Saturday evening hubby and I were joined by Elaine and Bryan, and we dined at the Kai Thai in Monte Casino … food was yummy – far, far nicer than the Kai Thai near where we live …


… and then we watched the Tattoo which was held in the grounds of Monte Casino. I booked as soon as the bookings opened, months ago, as we had heard so many great revues from the past two years performances. We were all a little disappointed – maybe I had greater expectations but it wasn’t what I was expecting.

It was very colourful .. with flags being whirled …

…and the gum boot dancers pounded the floor and their boots in typical ethnic rhythm ..


… and the highlight – for me anyway …. well, I do have a bit of Scottish blood running through me … were the Pipes and Drums and the Highland dancers !

It ended too soon … I was expecting more! Will do a post on the Tattoo later this week

  1. I'm glad Connor is back from the hospital Avril, what a relief it must be for you! Loved all your pictures again especially the kids and the pretty flowers in your garden! Have a great week!

  2. So many pictures of so many interesting things.I really need to get my garden into some kind of shape before summer and seeing that Janet has done hers, maybe I need to make a plan as well.I am envious of the flowers in your garden. You clivias is awesome. I just planed my first clivia, so I am not holding my breath for flowers this year, but maybe next.It looks like the Tattoo was a great experience.
