We are all so thrilled for Kate and Tom - Welcome to the world Siobhan.

Egg stripping from the trout

Every year the Inland fisheries have an Open Day at the Great Lake (central Higlands of Tasmania), people come to watch the eggs being stripped from the Trout ready to hatch out into little fish. It's a great day and thousdands go to watch. It was very cool, but I was prepared with my new gumboots given to me by my hubby for Mothers Day. Nice warm fire at the shack and lots of wood collecting - and cups of tea - I was in my element. Here are a few pics of the fish and their eggs.

Hungry caterpillar cushion

My darling little grandson is turning two next week, his theme for the party is The Hungry Caterpillar, so I went to spotlight, bought a panel, did a bit of chopping and turned it into a cushion for the little darling. I am sure he will like it don't you?

My dear friend Dendra's 50th

My dear friend Dendra celebrated her 50th birthday this week, we celebrated with afternoon tea and she opened her lovely crystal candle stick holder off me and just loved it. I included some yummy chocolate coated raspberries too.
