Weekly Winners : 24 - 30 May

Erin, our little granddaughter, came to visit last Sunday ... with her dad and mom of course ... and was a little shy when Elaine arrived home ....

We get together every few weeks or so ... and it takes her a little while to 'melt' ....

... and get used to us again. We don't make a fuss ... just chat with her ...

"You've got new little freckles on your nose!!"

"Same as you, 'Lainey bugs' "... (her name for Elaine, thanks to her daddy, Carl who has always called her by that name - they are 11 years apart and he gave her that nickname when she started getting her 'big' teeth)

I got such a big hug ...

Isn't she a little cutie pie ....

I was caught, with camera in hand, waiting for moments to take photos of Erin

The past week was busy with Bradley's concert and I had two very tired little boys every afternoon ... here is one .. watching TV in a trance ...

... and another, Connor - actually he was sick, so his daily routine nap at school went 'out the window' and he fell asleep every afternoon at around 4 messing up his whole evening routine.

Aaaaahhh!! Peace .. and eyelashes!

And lastly - wine or flowers ... wine or flowers ... wine or flowers ?
Ummm ... flowers today ! ... and a baby tortoise!

Will not be contributing next weekend :( to Weekly Winners as I am going to the Cape! :) :)))
Hubby and Mr T are going on business and I am going too! P managed to get me on the same flights ... yay ... but I will be going through to Somerset West to see my Mum for a day then ....
....when they have completed whatever it is they're going for ... we ... are ... going ... wine tasting!!!
Loads to blog about after next weekend !!
This week's Weekly Winners are found here on Lotus' blog .....


  1. ahhhhhhh Avril, my heart melts seeing your Princess...she is so adorable.
    I know with my grandkids it takes them time to get used to me, one of the reasons I try have as many web chats as possible ( had a quickie today )

    I hear Bradley lost his first exciting all the different stages and am sure its very peaceful in the house when Connor when my Eden sleeps..peace, beautiful peace in the home.
