This blog is all about me......I come here for respite in between caring for JoJo (our Daughter who has Special Needs)......I am addicted to starting new projects......I am becoming a fabric-a-holic... I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue to have coffee...sip a glass of a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

A Catch Up Week....and 'Eye News'

I've been a little quiet on the blog front lately....turns out the iPad screen is playing havoc with my eyes and giving me headaches.......not just the screen but bright light outside and glare as well...... After a trip to the Optometrist I've been prescribed new lenses with anti-glare and been advised to have breaks from it looking forward to the new specs!  Meanwhile I am visiting everybody but not commenting everywhere!

I thought a little catch up was In order
Above is some secret sewing for Chooky's SSCS (Secret Santa Christmas Swap)
The big reveal will happen after Christmas when my Partner opens her gift

Meanwhile here's JoJo snipping some Snow Peas which are doing really well

I bought some garlic and onion from the Moruya Sage Markets

And then of course some garlic fell down and looked like a spaceship
Also I spilt the frozen peas all over the floor

Went to a Carer's Lunch today at The Grapevine Cafe and had the most delicious Chicken Salad with Avocado and Grapes.  Also check out the lovely (Market) Zucchini.......such lovely shapes!!!

Underneath is a pic of a Gluten Free Fingerlime and Coconut Tart also purchased at the Markets.....totally awesome!

Better sign off now......these poor old peepers are starting to spin
Till next time......Dzintra

Welcome "home" to Blogland dearest friend! Good to know that your situation can be helped out with new specs and a bit of a rest. WE MISS YOU! And those snow peas look crisp and wonderful!

Waiting to see your big reveal!!!

My experience with the iPad is if I use it in the evening I have a hard time falling asleep. Everything in moderation, right? Lovely to hear from you!

It's good you found out what was wrong with your eyes. I get eye strain if I spend too much time on the computer so I now try to do it in shorter time periods.
I like the way your onions landed like a space ship. JoJos snow peas must taste wonderful freshly picked from the garden. Your lunch out would have been lovely.
