Earlier this year hubby and I were lucky enough to become the owner of a small caravan that good friends of ours were unable to use anymore. It has take us a little while to get thing organised and the weekend before last, we were finally in a position to take it away for the first time. We chose Waratah Bay which has a nice caravan park and not too far from Melbourne, just a couple of hours drive. Coincidentally we celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary the same weekend so that made it an extra special get away for us.
We had a wonderful time, met lovely people who were happy to share tips about travel and had a number of enjoyable walks on the beach. Here are some photos from our time away.

I have been keeping busy with projects such as these two crochet blankets in the making. I am participating in the Spice of Life CAL with Sandra Paul from Cherry Heart and thoroughly enjoying the process.
And to make sure I don't get bored I'm also doing this blanket which is the "As-we-go-Stripey blanket", pattern found here
To throw a little social life into the mix, hubby and I went to a wedding this past Sunday which was lovely and the weather was perfect. It certainly was nice to have an excuse to glam up a bit and wear a nice frock, shoes and put my hair up. This photo was taken in our back yard.
I'm off again to Western Australia on Sunday to visit Mum and my brother at the farm. I'm vert fortunate to be able to visit so frequently.
