Winter season means ballet and opera seasons...
Remember my pink silk coat I wore to our son's wedding in Ireland last year?
I wore it over black pants and top to see the Qld Ballet's 'Swan Lake'...
and carried this vintage bag which belonged to my mother.
A perfect match..
No matter how often one sees 'Swan Lake', a good production is a wonderful experience. The Queensland Ballet under Artistic Director Li Cunxin, and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra performing Tchaikovsky's exquisite score -
a combination made in the stars.
Costumes and sets were Perfection..
I popped into the Garden Centre to buy my sister a rose bush, and somehow this pot came home for me.
The parrot most definitely approves...
Miss Markle went to England to watch Prince Harry play polo.
A royal wedding coming up???

By the artist Pip & Pop, Rainbow bridge is a creation of miniature environments inspired by stories of paradise, fantasy lands, creation myths, and Buddhist ideas of the universe. 'The Land of Cockaigne' which first appeared in French 13C poetry was a mythical land of plenty: houses made of cake and sugar, pastry pavements, and so on.
Children particularly love the four glittering scenes dotted with tiny artificial flowers, woodland creatures, sequins and crystals - even a bird wearing a golden crown...
Mr Cardinal is having knee replacement surgery next week.
Fingers and toes crossed for a good outcome and a quick recovery.
It will make life much more comfortable for him...
especially when travelling - to Canada for Christmas,
and a European cruise in 2018.
We have plans!
