After an enjoyable lunch at Palate Pleasures, we adjourned to the local park where Bowral's
famous tulips were on display, with the Tulip Festival beginning on the 24th September. The tulips were a multitude of colours, along with violas, bluebells and daisies. Jenna (almost 8 year old step-GD) was quite fascinated with the ladybirds and other bugs on some of the flowers. She told us the flowers she'd seen were much prettier. "Why?" we asked. "Because they had bugs on them," was the reply. Children do see things differently, don't they?

I will tell you a little about myself first though: I am mostly retired, a former teacher, married to my dear Dutchman (Hans) for nearly 39 years and have two grown up children, one of whom is married and lives about three hours away. The other is still single and lives nearby. My interests are largely of the creative kind when I am at home - patchwork and quilting and machine embroidery mainly. I love to read and adore travel. Hans introduced me to it when we were first married and now he wonders whether he did the right thing because I'm always thinking about somewhere new to see!
Now I'm really going to bed! Talk again soon,
