Moogerah Dam just because we could......
It was such a lovely winters day, much toooo nice to sit at home.....






Of course it always includes morning tea....

"The Dam Cafe"

Bits of this and that.....

Movies instead of stitching......
we are so naughty......
I wasn't very keen on seeing this movie but I'm so glad we did.....
I could see all of us (the Tuesday girls) in it, we all loved it......


What's a movie without a choc top......


Then lunch of course....


Every now and then I find myself giggling when I think of different parts of the movie.....
Best movie I have seen in a while.....
It was the "Tuesday girls" to a tea......

Flower Garden progress.....
slow and steady background project.....


I've had to do a few pre-bowls for my tenpin bowling league so when I  do these the girls (Tuesday girls) like to join me for a bit of fun....


I went for a drive with Heather and we discovered a quirky cafe in an industrial area....
Which led to a coffee and muffin of course....

"Forking Espresso"



Well that's it, all caught up now I hope.....
