Can you remember as a child your parents going on about how quickly time goes and thinking NO what are they on about. It just seems like yesterday that I sat down to write my last blog post and here I am running late again.
Last week was rather a busy week here as we had our kitchen floors sanded and re-polished and had to move out for a couple of nights. We travelled down to Hobart for one night , which enabled us to catch up with the family, which is always a joy . I also may have done a little shopping for Christmas.
Bright and early Friday morning we drove back to Launceston as it was a work day for me and stayed with my sister, Lyn on Friday night.
The floors came up a treat, we are very pleased with them. The kitchen was redone by a local kitchen specialist about ten years ago and after living with a just functional one while raising our family it is sheer bliss.
The rest of last weekend was spent cleaning the house from top to bottom (if you have ever had floors sanded you will understand ) , dust simply covers everything no matter how much care is taken.
On Tuesday John and I visited the small town of Longford to both check out a picnic spot with a view to a car club run (not suitable due to gravel roads) and a fairly new gourmet food store that a friend recommended (it was excellent and I will return).
For the trip to Longford I wore the Mos Mosh floral blazer , a Spring purchase , over a pale green Lisa Ho top and wide leg pants . This pretty blazer is rather a change for me and I do love it but feel I would prefer it over darker colours . Cream and brown Fendi sunnies , cream vintage earrings and a necklace were my accessories.
On a cool Wednesday morning I met my dear friend Janet at a local cafe for a catch up over several pots of tea. In view of the weather I needed my old faithful short black leather jacket , teamed with my Rundholz dark blue skirt and a black tee.
Finishing up with this shot of the front of our house with the climbing Cherub rose in full bloom , the weeping rose is Seafoam and John’s pride and joy a 1953 MG TD is in the driveway.
On another note I was rather honoured to be asked by Elizabeth (aka The Vintage Contessa) to be her Ageless Style victim this month. Elizabeth lives in California in a beautifully decorated and quirky home surrounded by the most wonderful garden that she shares with her Italian husband and her animals , including Banksy , a teacup pig ( I hope that is right).
