We should make the most of every single day, walking in love and blooming where we’re planted.
I love the birds that come to my garden - especially the Catbirds. I have a pair of Catbirds that frequent the swamp oak outside my window.
I have been working on making a new awning for our caravan. The original one has just worn out so I am making a new one from an old tent. I am not sure how it will go.
Here it is lying on my backroom floor before being stitched together.
This is the awning so far. We attached it to the caravan to check it out.
P:-) and I had planned to be away at the moment, but we are having some trouble with the brakes on the caravan and P:-) has had difficulty obtaining the parts as it is quite old. As soon as the brakes are fixed and we are free of appointments we will be off to Davistown. Can't wait!
Part of fixing the brakes on the caravan required taking it for a short drive. We drove down to Towradgi Beach about 10 minutes away. I love this beach . It is where I grew up.

We walked around to Corrimal Beach and had coffee at the Ebb and Tide Cafe.
P:-) and I are both on pensions now and in order to make ends meet I have begun making birthday presents. P:-)'s youngest child B had her 26th birthday recently. I made her a heat frog.
Filled with barley and lavender it can be heated to make it quite warm.
It can be used on sore muscles or just to keep warm in winter. I attached some instructions.
I have just started following a blog named Emily Eva Alice which is very interesting as well as informative.
It is written by a young woman who is in remission from cancer. She is very positive and writes about her life. Click here if you would like to have a look.

Grim images of Rana Plaza disaster
The glitz and glamour of New York Fashion week was interrupted by grim images depicting the reality of the fast fashion industry this week. Labor activists forced designers and fans to acknowledge their contribution to the suffering of those who were killed or injured by the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh. Labor activists were able to beam the faces of Rana Plaza’s victims onto the exterior of Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week. Protestors also marched upon The Children’s Place, one of several retailers that have failed to compensate victims of the disaster.Click here to see more pictures.
