I made that phone call and Prue and I hit the road to town... it poured with rain all day ..... after the first attempt to put up the umbrellas we found it took longer than a quick trot to the shop doors .. so we gave up on them. After all our skin is waterproof.
So it was a day of window shopping we did buy a few little items, me I got 4 new tea-towels just what a girl needs .... but it was great to just wander with nothing particular in mind to look for, amazing what you look at ... we tried on rings at the jewellers, clothes in some shops, checked out the shoes we did not require .. and furniture we definitely did not need.
It was great just to see what was out there on offer.
I met a couple of friends I'd not seen for ages ... then we realised we had missed lunch ... so off to the food hall and we treated us to Chinese .. that saved cooking dinner this evening.
I then remembered at 6.45pm that the poor cat had been in all day so headed home and he just stirred off the chair I had left him on, I wonder when he would have moved if I had not come back when I did.
So looks like a slice of toast for supper and may be a early night with the book as it is still pee.....ing down outside
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.
