Catch Up!!

I know I've been a bit of a slacker lately with my blogging....... school holidays and going away for a few days didn't help either! So I've got a bit of catching up to do and I will try very hard to get it all done over the next few days.

A few weekends ago when Megan had her birthday party my parents came up from Orange to join in the fun, the day after the party we went for a little drive over to Nundle..... it's really pretty country side over there and there are a few cute little craft and antique shops as well. We found this Tea House which was once an old gold mine..... yes the building is built on top of the mine and there is a big shaft in the middle of the room which has been lit up so you can see to the bottom, there is also a mine you can walk into...... so cool, and the coffee and slice is very nice as well.
Mark and Dad went for a little drive around while Mum and I went to the Nundle Woollen Mill, this place is sooooo nice and I totally didn't expect what was inside...... one of the most gorgeous boutiques I have ever seen, all woollen garments of course it was just beautiful.

In one little corner of the shop was some wool which had been spun and dyed at the Mill..... the colours were so vibrant it made me want to go home and knit..... Hmmmmm

On the table in the middle was a beautiful display of these funky knitting needles, I couldn't resist I had to have a set..... orange with white spots. Don't know what I'm going to whith them because it's been years since I knitted anything. I just had the carpet in the lounge room cleaned which was great except the man who came out to do it wouln't shut up!!! A job which once he got into it only took 15 minutes took him 1 hour and 15 minutes!!! Arrrgghhhh. I now know that his daughter has just started scrapbooking and is going to do some pages on her cat and a holiday she went on in New Zealand, I got the run down on the holiday as well. I now know that he built and extension on his house and all about his neighbour. I know that there has been a death in the family and the entire life history on that person and everyone that person every knew........ so there!!!

Now that I've caught up on a bit I'll attempt to get back to it later, now I've got to go catch up on some ironing.
