Wow time flies by!

I have to say that time just went by and l have not kept my favorite blog updated.

Life has changed a lot since then! A very quick decision was made and house in Clanwilliam was sold within 3 days. We now live in Port Alfred to be nearer to our daughter and her family!

We have renovated the house we bought and as of last week am now enjoying our retirement once again!

daily life!

Updates again. Family photo of daughter’s cute family! Coco hoping hubby will share the cupcake. Lucky and Coco going for a Sunday drive, their first outing to a coffee shop. Well Coco was really cute watching people around us and of course Lucky wants to play. They were very well behaved for the first time!  I have been crafting away and decided all my scissors needed a bit more weight. I seem to loose them often these days hehe, so added some cute extensions!
