A whole heap of nothing much!

My blogging is patchy this year. Other things seem to soak up my spare time. Garage business is just busy enough and I tend to spend the better part of my afternoons down there doing ...well, not much of anything really..just cleaning up, answering the phone...mopping the floor..sweeping the floor, stoaking the fire, burning the rubbish...LOL, not much of anything! But a whole heap of 'nothing much'.

I have branched out and taken up ladies golf at Tokaraki. I had a small taste of golf earlier this year and had fun, but didn't think about taking it any further, until recently I decided I needed to do something other than house work, garage work and scapbooking...so away I headed. I enjoyed my first day, played with the lovely, patient and very kind Yvonne Duff. And goodness me those golf ladies must be super fit, I mean some of them were almost double my age and I bet they didn't hurt as much as I did at the end of the day!!
  Camden was home at the weekend and kindly gave me a game at Kurow Golf course. Tokaraki was, and still is, closed due to the ground being so sodden.

Camden and Abby brought my wee dog Millie home for the weekend. They have her in Mosgiel these days, she is on a strict diet,and loosing quite a bit of weight. Millie was double her ideal weight..whoops, how did that happen?! I miss Millie and it was so nice to have her home again for a short stay.

Last week I was super busy as I had my NZ paper Chase work to get done, in amongst everything else. I have been going to share these photo for a wee while now. They are the pages I scrapped at the last Embellish It Crop day in Oamaru. My memory card crashed, right in the middle of photographing my Paper Chase work,and the photos of my pages were on it, so today, between showers of rain I managed to re photograph them...here they are.

Thanks for popping by. if you have loads of rain, like we do in Duntroon, I do hope you manage to stay dry. take care out there.And if you want something to full in a wet afternoon...or a dry one, do check out our latest challenge over at NZ Paper Chase. xx

Go you on the Golf front, sounds like fun. Great LO's especially the hunting one, thats one of our boys passions as well. i have a pic of my step grandson sitting here on my desk waiting to be scrapped for him. You have inspired me to get on to it..

Here is my finished latest painting

Here is my finished latest painting
This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
