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 Post

Mr Armchair is having a few issues with his leg at the moment
Blood tests are clear as is an x-Ray so it's off for an MRI to see what is going on
This means double-duty caring for me along with JoJo
But nevertheless we had some respite care booked for night out at our local Indian Restaurant so he hobbled along to that

I couldn't have the Nan Bread as it isn't gluten free but was very happy with my crisp and crunchy

Only 2 gluten free Entrees so I chose this Lamb Mince Roll with A Mint Sauce......very, very tasty!
Beef Rogan Josh for him......Chicken for me and Sultana and Saffron Rice
No Dessert for me......they seem to put Wheat Flour into everything......this time in the Mango Purée which is behind the Cream and Wafer.  
We thoroughly enjoyed a few hours off and was inspired to go here after seeing The Hundred Foot Journey.

Couldn't resist this little pic of my gorgeous Great Nephew Connor

And in my sewing world I am working on my Faerie Quilt and enjoying collecting my Aurifil Thread Collection from Sarah

I'm having a bit of trouble keeping up with commenting on everyone's blogs but I do read them's how I start my day before JoJo's up and when she is it's Game On along with Mr A as well.

Have a great week Dear Readers......Dzintra

A Beach Walk and after the Storm

This is the pathway I follow to get down to the beach
It was just magic this morning......all sparkling and glistening

There were 4 board riders with paddles and one couldv'e sworn that they were Protectors of the Swimmers......if you look closely you can spot the people's heads there......almost like a Guard of Honour
A few weeks ago after one of our regular nightly storms Mr Armchair called me out to the balcony to look at the colours of the sky......I quickly grabbed the  phone as it was handy and snapped these!!!!!!

Ain't Nature just Grand with all Her colours!!!
