Greetings lovely friends & readers
I have been away for over a week as I moved my dear Mum in to Resthome Care. I think some overseas Countries call it Assisted Living but here in New Zealand we call it Resthome Care. It feels like I went away in Autumn & returned in Winter as there are bare branches & leaves everywhere around my section & garden.
The day before I went I had a VeRy important event to attend ... Grandparents Day at Sid's new school. Though the weather was dreadful & the scheduled Cross Country Run cancelled, we still had a wonderful time & both enjoyed it very much.

I couldn't resist this little framed cutwork design for $3 ... but once home I gave the frame 3 coats of Pale Duck Egg chalk paint as I thought this complimented the soft pastel needlework more than the darker wood.
This wee girl spends her Saturday mornings on the Counter at the SPCA shop & is quite a hit with the regular customers. I asked if I could take a photo of her - she was very social & seemed to really enjoy all the pats & attention.
