Sleepover with Knox...

WOW a 3yr old in the house again... And he doesn't stop talking...
I might be biased because he is my nephew, but he is so good to look after, so funny with what he comes out with, and kids love him...




Playing doctor with Seb




Tech nerds with Mad












Bath time..and we had no toys..apart from this sad little fish..which he loved...




And a visit from Milo




And photos with Mad




He has played X-Box with Seb and they are both sleeping in the lounge together..Knoxs request ..to sleep next to Bastian...
Mind you there are the 2 of them, and Knoxs , 2 duckies , 1 bunny , 1 monkey named - ohhh Ahhh, and Sebs mouse squeaky..as he had to have a toy too...

EASTER....




This is the smaller version of my tree. I took out the bottom 2 larger tiers..
Seb is home today so he did most of it... Think I need to continue
Stitching for a few more years yet to fill it.

Sweet Treats ... cupcake

Finished Cupcake.. There is a boo boo... The word cupcake is
2 rows up instead if 1. I will change it when I have finished the whole
thing incase I run out of the thread....








The beads still need to be added.

This is the Fab 4 2012 GTG piece.

I've only "borrowed" it ...

My SIL grandma made my mum 2 crocheted ripple blankets..and mum can only use 1 at a time, so this 1 would have just sat there all alone and sad....

That's what I told her..lol

So I have "borrowed" it until I get 1 ....

I have been trying to do one myself via YouTube and so far not so good..

So I think a trip to grandmas might be in order for a lesson and maybe a hint for her beautiful apple slice she makes for my brother... ( I do know her..lol )




It's so warm.. Perfect for our winter arriving soon...

Tim Burton , Johnny Depp

Back together again... And it looks great from the trailers I have seen...




Storyline
In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet-or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy...until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better...

And currently watching this classic with Mad, didn't know how much language
Is in it.. And love Guy Pierce...

Taylor Swift concert ....

for Christmas Mad gave me 2 tickets to the
Taylor Swift concert..
I knew 1 was for her ..lol
so it was finally last night
in Melbourne At Rod Laver Arena.
Before the night started I met up with the Fab 3
Helen Lissy & Coral
and to our dismay a few of our favourite haunts were closed..
oh no ...but seeing it was
a public holiday in Victoria it was on the cards..
so those shops missed out on some serious buying ..
oh well ..next time ...
so then onto the concert ...
the support act was
Hot Chelle Rae ..
ok..know I didnt know who they were until i heard this song ..
my age was showing ...lol

video



then ...
Taylor Swift ....
she was not one I would choose to see
but we both  Mad & I really enjoyed the concert
and had a wonderful mum & daughter time together ..xx













our next concert is
Lady Ga Ga in June ..
