Friday Smiles

Share a smile...Good morning Friday Smiles visitors.... from damp Townsville, Australia.
This is a photo heavy post (you can click on the pics for a larger view)
My first photo I couldn't resist... sunrise this morning - clouds with a promise of more rain. We're in drought here so this past week of rain is wonderful although the back your is very soggy and work on the build slowed considerably, tarps have been pulled over the extension to the right side of the house....

 A view of the back extension shows a completed two room structure ready for the plasterers on Monday, and our extended deck roof - see the shorter one still underneath that will be cut away.
 A couple of street views..

 And part of the building mess under our carport.... as you can see ladders and scaffolding everywhere
I was away last week on a sudden visit south to see my mum and very sick brother
So this gorgeous rose in mums garden certainly has me smiling
 Me and mum
Thanks for stopping by and if you have some happiness to share, please pop over to Annies blog and join in ..... have a wonderful week, Cheers

  5. Good to view the progress of the new "wing" of Robyn Towers. things are really progressing. I bet you were glad to get away for a while but not for the reason that your family was ill. I hope your Mum and your brother have recovered well. You and your Mum certainly look good in the photograph!
