Monday 15th October 2012We had an amazingly busy weekend here! It all started when I purchased an old cupboard from a friend during the week.
After a lovely cup of tea on the front steps, in the sunshine with Ron and the dog................
We went off the the hardware Saturday morning and bought some necessary goodies - plants, fertilizer.....oh and paint stripper. I had already tried sanding off the paint with the intentions of having it back to the timber finish.
Ron helped me clean up the mess I had made in the garage and then after washing my car, which was also covered in dust, we checked our phone messages to find one from so dear friends of ours that are moving at then end of the year to 12 hours drive away. They wanted us to join them for a quiet night, so we bought some chickens and chips on the way.
I also got a message from Bec that afternoon asking if we would like to meet them for a BBQ breakfast in the morning, so we packed up the picnic gear and headed off to the beach to have bacon and eggs cooked on the BBQ. The weather was absolutely lovely and the company even better!

What a wonderful way to spend the morning.
When we got back home, it was the general washing, tidying up and later in the afternoon I had to bake. Ron was completely out of goodies to put in his lunchbox, so I made peanut butter and choc chip biscuits, lemon cake, muesli bars, bread and some mini lemon meringues. I also put a rolled pork in the oven to have as a roast for dinner and this would then give me cold meat for sandwiches for the week.
I hope everyone else had as good a weekend as we did!
