Friday Smiles

Share a smile...
Hi I've been absent from blogging for a few weeks, but I'm back to share some happiness with Annie.
So this week firstly we're all smiling as we had 3+ hours of rain on Wednesday evening - our area is officially now in drought and living with level 2 water restrictions -so the good soaking was a wonderful relief.
Next hubby and I have been busy trying to sort our stuff downstairs and now that my kitchen cupboards are complete we were able to bring up 4 boxes of my gear.... now that might seems ok but our son has a kitchen full of stuff so I've spent today trying to sort 2 kitchens into 1. It doesn't look much different now  - messy, but the keeping stuff fits in the cupboards.... a garage sale is on the books.
 Now of course I have to include some happy snaps of the grandkids...
here's Mia (5 weeks) - all smiles
 and Nanna and Pa with the girls in their Christmas outfits lining up to have Christmas photos at the local shopping center.

Now here's my chuckle... this is a zucchini from our new vege garden - yes it's round..... the laugh is that hubby bought home seedlings and they've done really well but to our amazement the fruit is round and we thought we had a malfunction - he was certainly baffled. Well another visit to the store proved that yes he had picked up a punnet of a new variety.
Thanks for stopping by and if you've some happy thoughts to share please do over at Annies blog.


  1. Fab pics Robyn. Our kitchen looked just the same this morning because we moved the last bits from our old kitchen to the new and the old one is being dismantled today....more mess! 😀 Love the pics of the girls...Christmas is the time for families 😀

  3. Super pics Robyn and the children are adorable. Such joy!
    How super your kitchen will be when you get sorted. We all have too much "stuff", don't we?
    Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog.

  4. Hi Robyn, It is amazing what you can get into a kitchen:)

    Mia and her sister are adorable in their Christmas outfits.

    I've never heard of a Zucchini that's round. We call them Courgettes, but again never seen a round one.

    You have a lovely weekend. Sue

  5. Oh, what a lot of stuff to get into one kitchen! Nightmare! I hope you get some kind of order soon.
    The girls in their Christmas frocks are adorable!
    Ha, the round zucchini! Yes, I have seen round courgettes (zucchinis). But not tasted them. The taste is supposed to be no different (as in: not much taste). Have you tasted them yet?
    Thanks for visiting earlier,
    Have a good week,

  6. Hi Robyn...great to see your Friday smiles this always gives me my Friday smile! I am loving your new will be so worth it when you are all sorted. Mia and Sophie look gorgeous....I can't believe it has been 5 weeks already since Mia was her big sister Sophie she is adorable. I too have never seen a round Zucchini but I'm sure it will taste good...I love fried Zucchini. Thank you too for my lovely Christmas card which I received in the post yesterday, hugs Vikki x
