I went to Melbourne with Madeline and my mum, to catch up with
Coral to celebrate her BIG 50th on Thursday.
Of course Helen and Lissy were there along with their beautiful
daughters Megan & Candice ..Mad love them both
1st stop as meant to be KoKo Black, but it wasnt open,
but lucky for us just around the corner was another devine
chocolate cafe we found - even better that KoKo.
I think it was called Chokolait ... heaven ...
then to Corals surprise ( she is in pink) of to the Hopetoun tea rooms in the
block arcade for High Tea ..
Now that was heaven ... a 3 tiered stand with
& of course -sweets ..
then came the fresh warm home made scones ...
Candice behind the treats ...
we also couldnt go past Haighs - it was also a stalling point before we went to the tea rooms at 11. Mad just loved these "little" frogs, but at $20 each, we gave them a miss.
Oh heaven - scones ..she is my daughter and I have trained her well ....lol home by 6pm and a fantastic day out also visiting our usual haunts and back to Chokolait for afternoon tea.. we were getting thirsty ..
it felt weird not to have anything to sit and stitch,
also because both children are home sick
with some cold/flu bug going around.
We watched Elf again ( think I have seen it at least 7 times )
its always a good laugh ..love the bit where he puts the star on the tree..
and a few other dvd's ...
as at 5th November 2010
then after Dog Lessons I am starting LK Halloween double flip its, have thread and fabric all ready to go Just love the colours in this, even though we dont celebrate Halloween I love it. When Seb was little he loved 60's episodes of Batman & Robin, still does and we would have to get anything with a Bat on it. So now when I see Bats -I see him ...
starting 1st January 2011 ... (57 days away incase anyone needed to know lol ) I am starting a SAL (Stitch-A-Long) with my BFF - Helen and another international stitching friend Kerry-Jo. We will be doing it together, good motivation to keep each other moving along. If anyone else wants to join in, let me know I will ask their permission to keep an update with photos from us all on here ...so watch out 1st January 2011...
My blog is about anything and everything.
