Weekend reading

Feeding the chickens, learning through doing.

It's been a big week here for all of us with Sunny's Sushi Isu opening, a visit from Shane, Sarndra and Alex, the early mornings trips to pick up Jamie and looking after him here. It takes a lot of energy but we love it and wouldn't have it any other way. In fact, I didn't get the chance to do my post at the usual time today because at 3.45am I drove over to Sunny's to pick up Jamie. Now he's outside with opa, they're gardening and I can hear them laughing, so all is right in my world. I hope it is in yours too. Thanks for your visits and comments this week.

Down below I've included Roman and Jana's Spurtopia workshops and open days. You may have seen them on Gardening Australia. These workshops are at their home and they'll be great for you if you want to learn or be inspired. Donations are welcome. Also below are details of the Brisbane Craft and Quilt Fair.
