Time to catch up

Where has the last few weeks gone - so much going on. Just a quick catch up on life here over the last couple of weeks.

We've been crafting making theseThey soon grow into these and Chloe has been using them as gifts for friends.

They are kinda of cute and you can give them a haircut and it doesn't take long for the hair to regrow.
Steve and I have spent the last couple of weekend together. We went out for breakfast, checked out the new shopping centre in town,

Steve wasn't overly impresses. There were only two stores that interested him and that was Dick Smith and JB Hi Fi, the rest of the new stores were mainly geared at young woman who love clothes shopping.

We stopped here for a cuppa together

headed home and went to the gym together and then that night, we dropped Chloe off at Youth Group and headed out to dinner here. where we enjoyed these.This last week I had a bit of pampering and went in looking like this
and came out looking like this.
Felt really strange - a little to short for my liking but I guess it won't take too long for it to grow again.

This past weekend was busy also. These gorgeous guys came in for a visit

We hit the shops again on Saturday morning and had a real girlie time. Chloe also had the day off and one of her friends joined us too, and then in the afternoon, Steve and I headed
off to the local Home and Travel Show.Were totally blown away at the new and modern caravans - even more so at the prices of them. Heck we bought our house for way less than some of these cost. We saw these amazing Campervans. They folded down into a trailer in less than a minute. It was unbeleivable and they were so light and secure. We were very impressed.
We are starting to plan our big holiday. I know the time will really fly. Where has this year gone.

Sunday afternoon both Chloe and I had a bridal shower to go too. It was a lot of fun. Here is the bride - only 7 weeks until their wedding.
With limited resources we had to perform miracles and dress some brides.
Got to order Steve's Father's Day present on the weekend - had to have a little help from him. It arrived today but he can't play with it until the weekend. Must admit I am looking forward to having a play as well. Here is a sneak preview.
We are enjoying fresh strawberries at the moment. Found this in one of our punnets this week. Looks just like one of the light bulbs in our lounge lights. Chloe was so impressed she thought should have put it on ebay.
Well that is about it from me this week.

Karen you just reminded me of a craft activity Fletch wants to do. A few weeks ago he had a home reader about Granny Grasshead and has wanted to make one. I must go buy the stuff.

I think you looked great after your pampering.
