Easter ... Birthdays ... Holidays ... busy times

Every time I think about blogging lately ... I just don't seem to get around to it - which is pretty slack for me.  Here's what's been happening since I last blogged ...

finished a new photo frame ... now for sale !  $120 plus postage




Poor Tango had a 'visitor' circling his cage at 4am ... we put him INSIDE because we were worried about snakes, but looks like this python was determined to get inside!  Mr Python is now 'relocated' ...


Yours truly had a birthday so whipped up my fave cheesecake!!

Had a go at making my Aunty's caramel slice ... 

yummmm ....

Easter was fun - went to a 21st to go to ... waterskiing the next day and then came home again to find LOTS of  easter eggs ...


One of my precious birthday presents ... ♥


someone got a little too close to our burner ... 

Blackberry !!! almost became lamb chops ...


Richard had his birthday 2 days after mine !!!  10 this year - can't believe it ...


Watchdog Tango ...

yikes !  Huge sand goannas all over the garden lately ... digging it up  ... grrr   where ARE you Tango ???




We've been totally addicted to watching MKR (My Kitchen Rules) every night ... we've got our fingers crossed Jac and Shaz will win !! They're from Mt Isa and are awesome ♥


showing off my pink gloriosa lily ♥♥

... and again ...

my fabulous woodstove that's been in the garden forever ...

close up !


hopefully the last of the grasshoppers ... this one now living in the vacuum cleaner !


time to throw this one out ... 

and in with the New - well vintage new that is ... 

ready to plant my nasturtiums ...

so glad to see things starting to grow back after the grasshopper plague ate so much out of the garden ... 

'nature's first green is GOLD' ♥
