With all the comments about Cadburys new flavoured chocolate with Vegemite some wag with too much time on their hands has done this VB Cadbury picture and shared it on Facebook.I don't like beer so the thought of this is horrible however I will not be trying the Vegemite one either the only chocolate ( indeed lollies) I eat is Cadbury's Dairy Milk
This Flagstaff has been erected over the same spot the Governor Macquarie erected the Union Jack on the 7th May 1815..It was one of the major features of Bathurst Bicentennial celebrations and if ever you are in Bathurst it is worth going to the River Peace Park to see.
As you can see there was not even a whiff of a breeze yesterday but it was gloriously sunny after all the cold days we have had recently.
All my ancestors have gone to their grave believing Aunty Millie had lost this paternity case until I found it on the Internet!!!
And most of the people in my generation don't know or remember Uncle Clarrie , Clarence James the child of this union!!!As a child I knew him well and I also listened to stories particularly from Mum and Uncle George neither of which put him in good light!
These two hands are getting old now but over the years they have nursed for many years, reared two lovely children , cooked , cleaned, gardened and all the motherly things but they have also knitted,crocheted,sewn,embroidered and quilted for most of my life.
Who could resist these eyes? They belong to Murphy who is about 10 years old a rescued Cross Maltese I have had since 2007. He is my shadow and guards me with his life until my daughter comes home for a night or two and then he switches allegiance to her automatically.
My Singer treadle hangs upside down (well almost) when it is packed away in it's cabinet , this machine was given to me by the Sisters of Mercy and it used to live in their convent in Byng Street Orange NSW..
As part of the celebrations last night they had illuminations and a lantern parade , 100 years ago last night they had a lantern parade to celebrate Bathurst centenary and they recreated it last night.
The night was cool and crisp but there was a very large crowd and the Court House did look lovely ,the lights will continue until 17th May (if you get home in time Julie!).
This is Polygon Wood near Ypres Belgium , my Grandfather received a gunshot wound to his left shoulder in the battle here in September 1917.I visited here in 2006 and it is a very peaceful place now but it must have been hell during the First World War.
I received a parcel this week from Tom and Jayne who had been shopping at the Quilt Shop in Celeste Tx . It contained some fabric as instructed by me to make a quilt for Lisi and Ethan and I have commenced work after a day or two procrastinating
The quilt is a Zig Zag design with the stripped bright colours and plain black, I hope they like it when it's finished.
