My What Big Eyes You Have Granny....

Lots of things have been going on in my little world (or should I say my little head) over the past couple of weeks. I can't even begin to explain.... So I decided to take a couple of days off work to give myself a time-out!!!! I packed up the car yesterday morning and my princess and I hit the road bound for Granny's house.

I didn't tell Mum we were coming, I left it all as a big surprise. When I arrived she was so excited I think her eyes nearly popped out of her head. You see its been about 2 months since she's seen us and as most of you know young children just grow SO fast, too fast in fact. The last time that she saw my little princess she was just starting to crawl, now she's practically running every where, keeping us all on our toes.

I love coming home, as usual I walked into the sweet smell of baking, choc chip cookies, date and nut roll and a honey cake this trip. Don't you just love that?? My Mum lives on a farm about 7km North of a little town in the Riverina called Cootamundra. It's such a sweet little town with heaps of old fashioned country hospitality on offer. This is where I met my husband just over 6 years ago. Every time I come back here it all feels like only yesterday, I just love that feeling!

As always Mum and I love to shop and I've just come back from visiting the 2 local Op-Shops, boy-o-boy did I get some goodies!! I picked up a couple of cane baskets, some buttons, and some funky fabric. No photos yet as I left my camera at home, grrrrr, isn't that always the way, you'll just have to wait until I get back home on Monday...... You always leave at least 1 important thing behind when ever you plan a trip away. Mum and are are hitting the rest of the local shops this afternoon after the princess has her nap and then tomorrow we might even venture over to Wagga Wagga to do a bit of shopping there too... Just what the doctor ordered.

I hope everyone has a fantastic and relaxing weekend. Take Care ;)


  1. Ok I'm jealous......
    I want to find some great op-shops too.
    Hope this helps how you were feeling.
    Hugs & Kisses til next week.

  2. Isn't it great to just hang out with your Mum and eat lovely home cooking not cooked by yourself. Enjoy your little time out.

  3. Hi Jodie, Nope, no parcel here but your weekend sounds great. I don't ever remember sending you my address so maybe you sent it somewhere else - how funny would that be!!! Please don't stress about it- have a great time with your mum.

  4. Mothers are fantastic aren't they. I have wonderful memories of coming home from school, cold and wet and opening the front door and there was a smell of freshly baked bread or biscuits and coffee - and it was always warm in winter - just fantastic. It's still a haven - but I hope I'm helping to create these memories for my children.
    The shopping sounds fantastic. The op shops around here are not that good which is sad really. I think you need to get out into the country. Enjoy your weekend

  5. Sounds like a wonderful visit back home :)
