Tree Lopping

We had tree loppers in during last week as we had trees splitting and dangerous branches needed to be taken care off,it was quite a lovely shaded area and now it looks quite bare,but it had to be done.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend

Catching up with Buddies

 A few of us caught trains into Melb to meet up with our lovely friend Fiona,what a fun day we all had,nothing better than catching up with friends.

 We did some walking and some talking,lol,had a lovely lunch at an Irish pub and checked out Luccello's.

 Lots of smiling was happening and lots of pics also.

 Some xmas shopping was happening and Fiona found a reindeer to tickle,lol and Sue found one to buy,and look at that gorgeous purse that Marina had made for Fiona,wow it was so cute,not Fiona the purse,awwh ok and Fiona was cute too,lol.
 Cheers girls

 Our lunch was fanatstic and the company awesome.

Lol sorry Marina i had to put this pic in of you with your stout moustashe,lol,it is Movember and Susan is standing out front of Luccello's where they had a wonderful display of birdhouses.

I caught the 4.02 train to come home and someone had put a heap of rocks on the track and we were very lucky that we didnt derail thats what the train driver told me ,so we had to wait to be transfered to another train that was following not far behind us,so i finally arrived home at 7.15,it was a big day but so totally worth it.

A big thankyou to Marina for organizing our special day to catch up with Fiona.

Thankyou Marina,Fiona,Susan,Mel and Christine for such a wonderful fun day and cant wait to do it again soon.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
