The Icing on the Cake

Or more likely it was the straw that broke the camel's back. Yesterday afternoon topped off one of those weeks. Hubby managed to bog the dozer in a soak hole hidden in the long grass. He, Lisa and I then spent the arvo till the sun went down, trying everything we could think of to get it out but it's still there. We've now called in bigger machinery to the rescue.

The week started well enough with my birthday. A nice new warm pair of slippers for winter, cute cat ornaments and a lovely meal cooked by Lisa. Plus a chocolate birthday cake which I didn't have room for after the beautiful dessert. Made up for it the next day. And we do have our telephone operational again after a five week ordeal. Then throw in a broken part on the chainsaw and a broken part on a tractor implement. When they were fixed and ready to work again, add a punctured tractor tyre. Now the dozer.

Of course after finishing the curtains, there has been no more sewing. I'm off to baste my Spring Swap Quilt and start quilting it today (fingers crossed). Then it's off to work for the rest of the week. I am so looking forward to school holidays next week.

While I was taking a photo of the "new" cats, Jayne just wanted to make sure she wasn't left out.

Fleur was blending in near by, keeping an eye on things.
