Hazel Has a Sleepover.

The Vintage car that husband E and his Dad restored has had a sleepover after a visit to the local mechanic.

Her name is Hazel as her rear view reminded E's parents of a character in a comic strip called Hazel.


Our finished ladies, mine is the one at the back with no added clothing......

Samples that Denise from Paverpol brought.

Early steps.....

Mum treated the groovy Aunt and I to a Paverpol workshop. Mum's friend A. was the gracious host and set the scene for a day of relaxation and creativity. Our instructor Denise was patient and had thought of everything.

We started with aluminium sticks and foils. We moulded the 'skeleton'. Added a head and petite nose. Then we built up the body. We dipped fabric in Paverpol and bandaged our sculptures. The Paverpol product will dry hard and be waterproof. Some of the ladies then dressed their sculptures while I left mine as she was. She is heading for the lavender patch in the garden.

We were thrilled with our individual pieces.

The Groovy Aunt has made a sculpture for her new wholistic business premises.

First Thing in the Morning....

while the house was still and quiet, children sleeping in in the holidays....
Cup of tea, toast and reading a book about a man who has started "Christians Against Poverty".

Jugs of Lavender.

The lavender in the garden is growing beautifully. It sits in Aunty L's jug perfectly.


We have had problems downloading photo's on to the computer, so excuse whilst my recount is a little out of order or has little sequence....

4 year old daughter loved having her hair 'done' by 8 year old big sister.

Baskets 'A Plenty.

I still love baskets.

Ladybird Books.

I am enjoying these from an online book company based in the U.K. I am revisiting many old favourites. The children like them as well.

Boiled Eggs and Toast Soldiers.

There is something very comforting about boiling eggs. This pot is from my parents' house....
Husband E made toast soldiers as well.

End of Season: Soccer.

Our lovely team had organised a basket for the manager and coaches. Lots of lovely goodies.

'Sketches' from an Iphone application, our team playing (or chatting) at Gala day.
