Some progress

..this month I started with Friday Afternoon with Friends (everyone in our little group was busy stitching but not me this time, I just sat and relaxed after work and enjoyed the conversation)....then I carried on to Friday Night With Friends and actually did some stitching..and then it was Saturday Morning with Friends when I went to my Christmas Club Stitching morning for June.
I am a little behind schedule but should have this little project finished and ready to show for this month's 'One Christmas Item'
This week we have had a string of frosty mornings....can't drive anywhere till that windscreen is clear....and yes the car seat was cold as well.

Today has just come around too soon..

and we have been back to the airport to wave goodbye not only to DD1 this time but also DD2.  They are on their way to spend 2 weeks with their Nana (my Mum) and then DD1 will fly on back to Edinburgh and DD2 will fly back home.  On their list of things to do are the State of Origin game tomorrow and then a Manly game at Brookvale Oval.
There were not as many tears as last year when DD1 left for Edinburgh,( but there were still a few shed), and the house sure feels empty after her visit.  Just DH and I..
On Saturday we went for a drive over the hills but not too far away.  First stop was for an icecream..$2.80 each and here is mine, already partly eaten..mmmm maple syrup on top and caramel fudge on the bottom.  It must have been at least 5 inches high and I had already started before I took the did take some eating!!! and kept us all quiet in the car..
Then we stopped to take some shots of the harbour from the old road north out of the city
and DD1 was also getting some shots before she left town again..
