A photo tour.......

You've probably been wondering where I've been since last Thursday?
Let me give you a photo tour.
Remember the Fig jam I was going to make?
here it is!!!!!!!! Only I didn't make it.

I went out to the garden to do some more wedding and fertilizing
and when I came inside here was Hubby making the jam......
O.K now I know he's bored!!!!!!He never cooks or does any thing in the kitchen
and here he is making fig jam......
Very good fig jam to I might add. He enjoyed doing it, may-be I could teach him to make soap
and other things for me and then I could spend even more time in the garden.lol.

Now on Friday, Bronwyn and I went to a day spa in Toowoomba.
This was a gift to us from some wonderful friends.
Here we are in our way out, I have some others that I will post
later in the week for a good laugh.

We were pampered.....the day started with a spa than sauna.
After this a stone massage, if you have never had one of these I truly recommend one.
They are amazing. After the massage we had a facial.
and finished of with a manicure and pedicure.
Never have I ever done any-thing like this, Bronwyn and I have decided
instead of giving each other b/day and Christmas pressies we are going to shout each
other to a wonderful day like this one.

We finished the day with going out for a meal and movie.

In the morning I had a fund raiser for the school, to go to.
This was a fashion parade and morning tea. Then it was time to go
home and pick up the family. Back to town for Williams B/day party at Scallywags.

There were 12 boys that came and they all had a wonderful time.
After Will's party Robbie had a party to go to at the bowling ally.
While he was there from 4p.m - 5.30 we went to visit
Greg's brother that lives in town as it was not worth coming home.

We got pizza for tea and were in to bed early after such a big day.

Sunday was Church and I had lots of washing and house work to
catch up on.

Monday we had four Japanese students come to stay.
Meet from L-R Ayana, Saki, Ayumi and Mayu.
We only had the girls over night, this was the shortest stay we have had.
They got here 11.30am Monday.

And they left at 2p.m today.
This morning I took them to Picnic Point for a Picnic
and a look around, then it was time to take them to Gatton to catch the bus.
They were a lovely lot of girls and we enjoyed getting to know them..

So.........that's is what I have been up to.
I'm of to pick the children up from school now.

Blessings to all


  1. William is such a handsome boy. You can see it in the ball photo.

    I am not sure when my husband first made jam, I think he was in his early 30s, but maybe he made it before that. However, his one dud batch, that is still edible but doesn't seem to get eaten is, yes, fig.

  2. I've never tasted fig jam. But it looks and sounds wonderful. Lucky you to have a husband willing to make it for you!

  3. Mmmmm... Fig Jam.. My favorite! I never seem to get around to making jam from the neighbors figs, mainly because I eat them all first! What a lucky woman you are!

    My guy can never leave well enough alone and will add any ingredients that strikes his fancy... thereby ruining whatever he trying to make.

    Hmmm... Fig Jam? I think I can improve it by adding some of those blackberries I picked yesterday... and oh, maybe some of the blueberries that are in the freezer...
    And then he WONDERS why no one wants to eat it???

  4. Just popped in to say hi - if Greg needs more jam to make I have about 3 kilos of rosellas in the freezer!!!


  5. Gee, you have been busy. What a great hubby for doing the jam for you. Worst bit is getting jars ready, I think. I made Mulberry jam on the weekend. Really good.

    Cheers - Joolz

  6. Well done for the jam making.
    Will you now teach him to make SOAP or SOUP?? or both??
    blessings x

  7. Soap Angela, than maybe soup lol.
    Joolz have you already got mulberries on your tree?

    Greg is a sweetie making the jam for me, but he really thinks that he is the only hubby to ever make jam lol..So I won't bust his bubble and tell him other wise..

    Thanks for commenting girls.
