Hard to believe 1 year has gone by. This little man is the happiest little fellow on this earth. Oliver turned 1 last Friday. Here he is on his birthday with his great nan (my mum).
Same little boy a few days later having afternoon tea with myself and mum - he has found that 4 teeth are very handy to gnaw his way through a whole biscuit and then spend the next few minutes moving it around his mouth until it is mushy enough to follow - and he pulls faces and smiles at the same time!! Such a clever little fellow!!
That mouth is chocablock full!!

Karah had cooking night earlier in the week - an orange cake for pa-pa. It was very moist and orangey and didn't he get miffed when he came home and found several slices had been eaten - apparently mum and I weren't supposed to have any for afternoon tea - his granddaughter cooked it for him!!
And me - well I have been cooking the usual meals for everyone, spent a few mornings in the vegie garden prepping the beds and containers for new sowings (digging, composting and mulching).  Karah has her own beds ready to go and I will have mine - of course the MOTH will refer to it all as his vegie garden - suppose he does cart the manure and mulch across to the garden!! And he did spray all the weeds for us!
I finished some secret sewing which I will show you when it arrives at it's destination. I have completed 14 pillowslips for our local hospital and made several plastic bag holders for Karah's little market stall - have to transfer the photos to the computer yet.
All from me today - the very best wishes for a wonderful weekend to each and every one of my followers!!!
