Friday Snippets...

good morning!
i'm just quietly celebrating friday here.
it's queen's birthday weekend
so a long one for us with monday off work for mr w...and some of the boys.
it has been a normal week here...
no new babies
no falling down steps
or other nonsense...
thank goodness.
so i've just put together a few photos to capture
a normal week here...
..snuggling up warmly and comfortably
is popular at night here in front of the tv or computer...
...a bit more knitting has been done
over the past couple of days.
{ a beach ladies beanie actually??}
there's always washing up to do every day...
but the oranges are lovely freshly picked
from an orchard just up the road a bit...juicy!
i love my new black tempered glass 'black board'...
i bought it yesterday from aldi...only $14.99.
i think it's a bargain..
my new toy.
mr m was very efficient putting it up for me...
he did a great job and it only took him 5 mins!
what's going on at your place?
have a great weekend!
naturally Carol xox
ps...some of you think we have baby kai here...unfortunately location wise he is in taiwan and we're in australia.  skype and email are our best friends!
