Take one top hat when No.1 son isn't looking.
Preferably, while he's not wearing it as he has been known to chase people down who try and run off with it..........
Write down names on pieces of paper and place in upturned hat.
On the appointed day, just after finishing breakfast ask random person (aka hubby) to pull three names out of the hat.
And here they are in drawn order.........
First name drawn was
Emma from Lemons for Lemonade
Jacquie from Bunny Mummy
last but not least
Alison from Tweed Thoughts.
Jacquie and Alison, I have been following their blogs for some time, but Emma's blog is quite new to me.
I found her blog when she wrote a post late November about a pub she visited The Gwdihw in Cardiff which had a lot of owl ornaments.......
We 'chatted' a bit and there was a funny little story unfolding which she posted about recently.
If you haven't 'met' these crafty talented ladies, click on the links and say 'hi'........
It's a stormy evening here .......
Grey skies with the hint of a rainbow.
No rain for us, but someone, somewhere is getting wet.
Screeching Cockatoos, disturbed from their roost, wheeling across the leaden sky.
This is the same view but a different angle.
You can see how things have dried out, but there is still some greenery around.
Yes, we have ripe tomatoes before Christmas, yay....
These are meant to be cherry tomatoes, but they are hoouge.
You can't beat the taste of a homegrown tommie...
My favourite Summer flowers....Zinnias.
The first for the season.
A little red Robin or three came to live in my garden courtesy
of my talented, artistic friend Ella.
She used some above ground pool, corrugated metal and pop riveted some wings and legs to the body.
Sorry about the dark pick , but the wind had whipped up and it was getting late.
I still have to show you the wonderful tea cosy I received from another friend......next time.
It was quite a different story last night......
A beautiful sunset and a freshly washed piece of fabric drying on the line.
I spied this fabric at Spotlight yesterday and had to buy it.
I love the vintagy colours, very CK I thought.
Hopefully it will be put to good use very soon.
Sharing a meal with a friend.....Tigger and Mrs Kafups
