Happy Easter to you all....

The weather has been terrific here this Easter Weekend, except for the nights - they have been rather cool. Since my last post, we have had a couple or so of birthday parties! All been good!!
Blake celebrated his 18th.....One of the Snobs & Slobs - Glenice - had her 70th!!!Cos she is a quilter and sewer, her wonderful daughter Dawn got the theme of sewing happening throughout the room, including these lovely decorated cup cakes with fondant buttons on them.
You might notice in the background there was bobbins of thread and tape measures hanging around the place.
Glenice with her hubby, daughter and grand daughter.
As I mentioned earlier - tis Easter, so Claire and I headed up to the Barossa to stay with Lorraine. On the way there we encountered a rather large loose rabbit in the street. These people were obviously trying to catch said rabbit, but didn't seem like they were having much luck. Fortunately it was the only one we saw on the way out of town!

A craft fair at Angaston was on the days agenda - so off we trotted.....and guess what???? There "just" happened to be a fabric vendor there!! What a surprise that was :) LOL. So of course I made a promise that I wasn't going to purchase any fabric this weekend...............hmmmmm!

Back to Loz's for lunch and of course STITCHING!!!!
We then turned the cement mixer on, plastered our faces, changed our clothes and hit the town! Well, Saltram Wines in Angaston to be exact! Went to see Libby O'Donovan to be exact. What a laugh that was...not exactly as we expected, but thoroughly enjoyable from the beginning to the end of the show.Spent a wonderful night in the Hotel Loz. Woke this morning to a beautiful bright blue sky and Rose banging on the door to be let in.....this pic is nothing like the ones Loz takes of her...couldn't quite get her to keep her head still...LOL

We left mid morning to head home and for me to head off to a family birthday party. You can see that the two children were having a good were the rest of the children (Easter Eggs abounded) and the adults too!

Tomorrow is Anzac Day for us here in Australia. A moment to reflect and remember.
Lest We Forget... 2 all the fallen Soldiers that died for our country I thank you 4 what u did to help build this amazing Nation we call Australia..... To 3000 Soldiers OS now I hope your tour is safe and we as a nation welcome you on your return.. I have total respect for what you do as to take another mans life must be one of the hardest things in the world to live with.. Bless you all..
