DH had the last week off. He didn't want to, as he had plenty of work to do and we wanted to save his holidays for a few long weekends later in the year. He works for a large corporation and the edict was everyone out for the week. It's been a quiet week with all this rain.
So I have been able to finish all the stitcheries for the Gardener's Journal. Now I need to applique the hearts, make the last 2 blocks and put the top together. I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes out. DH pottered in his shed and made a possum box.We have also been to the post-Christmas sales. I got a couple of tops and a new roasting pan. In other words, it was somewhere to go while it rained.
This is this year's Christmas jigsaw. Nearly finished.
We made the most of the 2 fine days we have had. Plenty of washing and the lawn got mowed. We also went to dinner at this restaurant - Watt at the Powerhouse. The Powerhouse was once just that the Brisbane City Council powerhouse. It was decommissioned many years ago. Most of it was dismantled. Someone was smart enough to realise its great potential. It is now an entertainment precinct with 2 good restaurants. This one's on the level of the walk/bike way. So people can just stop for a drink and small bowls of food, and enjoy a great view of the river, or like we did enjoy a delicious 3 course meal. I wish I had taken a photo of my entree. It was a tomato tarte tatin with goat's cheese and a salsa verde. Simply Divine.
DH is back to work tomorrow, so I had better go and iron his shirt. Ironing is not my favourite thing and, boy oh boy, is my ironing pile huge. I wonder if there is blog to encourage people to do their ironing just like this one for WIPs.
