The Last Couple Of Weeks

Well I have been to Melbourne, it was great. The above picture was taken in Docklands, it is the side of a building and the silver bit moves in the wind, totally amazing. Of course I spent to much money but isn't that what our Ruddy Money was for LOL
I went to the MCG and watched Carlton flog Collingwood, the crowd was about 85,000 and it was an amazing atmosphere.

But I think my highlight was going to Etihad and watching the Saints take on Essendon, it was a close game, we only won by 19 points but the best bit was that we were only 3 rows from the boundary so I managed to get some great pictures.

Winter has arrived in Perth, and today is overcast and showery. All our mandarins have been blown off the tree, this happened last year also, but they weren't ripe enough to pick so we will have to wait until next year.
With this rainy weather though I will get some stitching done and maybe a bit of reading.

I have bought some yoyo makers off of ebay and hopefully they arrive before next weekend so that I can do something with all my bits and bobs of fabric that I have lying around, and next weekend is a long weekend and the last one until September.

Just Some Ponderings

Well I haven't posted here for awhile as I am busy at work and by the time I get home the last thing I want to do is sit in front of a computer again.
I haven't stitched much on my Celtic Banner either and probably wont for the next couple of weeks as I am off to Melbourne on Thursday and coming home Monday night. I am going over with some girlfriends for eating, drinking, shopping and footy.........just hope the Saints are still on their winning streak and don't get rolled by Essendon (which is the game that I am going to).
The weather here in Perth is still great, the day time temps are around 26-28 degrees, but the mornings are cool. Mind you we aren't supposed to get rain today but there is a few dark clouds around and I thought I heard it sprinkling before, but of course that is typical as I am doing the washing after having a lazy day yesterday.
