Oh so quiet

I'm sorry I have been sooooo quiet. We have brought another house and I am busy packing . You see, we move Easter weekend. So all will be quiet (as it has been) for a little while yet. Please be patient and I promise I will be back:)

Dee Day

Dee of sew-funky and myself went to the movies during the week.
Oh what fun. No kids, no husbands, just us. Perusing the shops and
drinking lattes.

I brought a packet of jaffa's, after all they are a movie staple.

Favourite thing Friday

Half strength Chai Latte.

I wish I was a coffee drinker as there is such variety. But, alas I'm not. So you can imagine my delight when I found Chai Latte's. The only problem is they are really sweet, and I am a non sugar tea drinker. One day, a lovely cafe man said he could make it half strength and a love affair was born. Now I too can have something special when I go out.

Wonder Woman

How appropriate that on 'International Womens Day' I accomplished some things I hadn't tried before. I likened myself to 'Wonder Women' but instead of the lasso of truth I had a silicone gun.
Yep! I re-siliconed the shower, put up some wet wall (the water resistant panels in bathrooms) and used my husbands power tools. No stopping me now.

Favourite things Friday


I am blessed to have some wonderful girlfriends.

Some are long term friends. The ones who know all your faults and love you anyway.

I have some that are shoulders to cry on and some that just crack me up.
Some that pop over and bring lunch and some that cook a meal for me.
You know who you are girlfriends!

The girls made crowns today. I brought some paper plates after seeing on this site, how to make paper plate crowns. This is a great quick craft and would be good to use at a kids birthday party.

Fitted sheets

My mum inherited 2 sets of new sheets that I think are just gorgeous. Luckily mum gave them to me. Not so lucky they were all flat sheets.
So I followed this tutorial and turned 2 of them into fitted sheets. It was a great tutorial and even I could follow it.

They fit beautifully and I haven't even put elastic in them. They fit so nicely I am just tucking in the sides.
So my girls each have a new set of sheets.
WARNING: Making flat sheets fitted can become addictive.
