It has been great this last week to get back to regular meetings of the Embroidery Guild and Rainbow Quilters.
The traffic is getting back to normal... you know the busy period in the mornings and then again at 3pm ... Mum's collecting the little darlings from school .... then busy at 5pm the workers returning home.
Everyone you speak to is either getting into exercise or healthy eating after the holiday period, I should be doing the same but I swim or take water exercise 5 times a week so that is all the effort you will get from me I am afraid .. The Polynesian Pools give a local ticket for $40 ... you may use their pools at any time any day .... as many times as you wish for a month , so you could go three times a day if you wished ... now that is what I call a bargain.
My pills are working and I have energy ...whee!!
The garden is lovely after all the storms a week or so ago but the main draw back is the weeds they obviously doubly enjoyed the wet weather as they are now knee high.
Stay a while and browse I chat about all nature of things mainly quilting and embroidery,but also life around us the fields, the flowers and family
Copying things from my blog
I am quite happy for people to use anything that I publish on my blog, if you wish to copy that is just great by me, I would treat that as a compliment, if it goes to a good cause then that is a double bonus.
Me. I am 70 yrs young, I finally went to university when I was in my 40's and received my diploma the same year as my daughter received hers. So there was life in the old gal.
I have been a follower and followed my then husband around the world, he working and me..I had a wonderful time and would not have changed a thing the experiences are 100 fold, I really must get around to writing a book. We have lived in France, USA, UK, Spain, Kuwait, Jordan, Philippines, China, Bahrain, Dubai and NZ to name but a few.
My nomadic life began in 1977 when my then husband was offered a job in Kuwait / Dubai Our wanderings continued and finally we ended up again in Dubai in 2006/9.. 30yrs later, so life has been in a full circle.
Stitching and Quilting kept me sane in all these years and are now my best friends. 2013 now sees me at home in New Zealand with my children and grand children and my last move from these shores. Vacations apart of course.
