  1. Sitting in Heathrow Airport waiting for our flight to Split Croatia where we join up with our tour group in 2 days. It has been a long haul so far having an 8 hour flight to Hong Kong, a 5 hour stop over before a 12 flight to London. We stayed here last night before heading off again today.

      My daughter went to Split this past June. Her tour started in Split and then they went on a boat up and down the islands there.  She had a great time and she said it was so lovely.  You'll have a great time.

    Abc's Of Household Objects

  3. Got my new glasses but lost my mojo. Too much happening here at the moment. We leave in just over 3 weeks for 7 weeks in Europe & UK plus we are getting a Granny flat built on our sons property. We were hoping it would be almost done before we left as the build was due to commence on Aug 2. BUT the council took so long for the approvals building is not starting till next Tuesday. So it will be getting done while we are away and our son will have to be in charge. Hope it is to our specifications when we get back. Plus we have to transfer funds to his account so he can make the periodic payments as each section is completed.

      Have a great trip and hope that everything is sorted by the time you get back so that you can settle in your new home real soon.

      Wow, how exciting and nerve wracking at the same time. I do hope you are able to relax and enjoy your amazing trip to Europe, wow 7 weeks! Try not to worry or stress too much about the happenings while your gone.

      I hope all goes well with the Granny flat and that you have a safe and wonderful time overseas.

    We passed through Rochester on our Canadian trip. Our tour guide lived there. Hope you have a wonderful time at the wedding. A pity you can't get to Niagara Falls. They are amazing.

    Weekly Winners - July 8th & 15th

    Congratulations to all the other winners. Thanks for choosing mine.
  10. I have a Canon DSLR which is very heavy to cart around but take it on my travels. My phone only had a 5mp camera so was pretty useless. I recently bought an LG phone with a 13mp camera to have in my bag. It was very reasonably priced (just over $100). I don’t use all the bells & whistles just as a phone & camera. It takes a pretty decent photo.

    Help Me With A Layout - I'm Stuck

    Oooohh yes! Love it like that.
  12. Sorry I have been MIA for a while. Our son who had Influenza A was in hospital for 4 weeks. He is recovering at home. Then on Tuesday this week David was taken by the paramedics to hospital from the doctor’s surgery with a suspected heart attack. Turns out he has/had influenza A which has left him with viral cardiomyopathy. He came home yesterday with a whole new eating regime to get our heads around and lots of medication whereas before he wasn’t taking any. Then on Friday I had my second cataract surgery after it was postponed 3 weeks ago because my lens had not arrived at the hospital. But all good now & we can move forward.

    Love it & can definitely relate to a lot of those things already!
  14. Winter has hit sunny Queensland. Temperatures are down to single figures & some areas are below 0C. We even have snow about 4 hours away from where we live. Definitely don’t like winter.
