All those lovely commenters who told me to take care -
oops, I overdid it last week, and rather went backwards for a few days...
It was probably a bit soon, but I had the opportunity to go to the theatre...
remember Deborah Kerr and Yul Brunner dancing up a storm in
The King and I, back in 1956?
The stage version is currently playing in Brisbane, with Lisa McCune as Anna and opera star Teddy Tahoe Rhodes as the King of Siam.
Lots of gorgeous colour and sparkle, and all those lovely old songs.
For me the highlight was Shu-Cheen Yu as Lady Thiang, the senior wife of the king, singing Something Wonderful: exquisitely...
I bought a yellow orchid - just because..
Been working on the crotcheting, and completed nine squares:
Haven't joined them yet, but decided to make one enormous square as a rug:
I wonder how many colours I can use and how large I can make this?
It is nice and cold now in the morning, and the teapot needs a cosy cover,
my pansies are already flowering,
and Little Aussie came to visit!
He sang the Happiness Song for us, strumming our old ukulele with the enthusiasm of any four year old boy..
We are all still in love with 1980s space Lego...
and I finally got him away from doing waterhole cakes, by trying a green field of dinosaurs.
I let him do it all by himself...
I made chicken pies tonight, because it is nearly Winter -
even if the maximum temperature today was, ahem, 25 degrees!
Our youngest son turns 35 tomorrow -
where have all those years gone?
I still think of him as the baby...
We are so proud of all our children, who have made happy and successful lives for themselves. It is definitely one of life's greatest rewards.
Keep safe and well,
