Mr and Mrs Home Maker's Weekend



Mr and Mrs HM out at a country fundraising pig race.



Hi Folks

Just a quick picture post on this rainy Sunday evening of a couple of things we got up to over the last couple of days - enjoy


Sometimes dinner is just a plate of great cheese.
Saves a whole lot of washing up and is pretty fabulous

Home made hot stewed apple

My lovely girls bought me an exquisite
pocket watch for my 50th birthday. I wear
it to work every day now connected by a chain
across my waistcoat.
 (I love 1940's men's clothes in case you wondered)

The piglets at the Westpac Rescue Helicopter fundraising
pig race at Denman NSW. They were super cute and ran real fast!

Our cute little red Suzuki petrol miser hanging out with the big
country petrol guzzler boys  at Merriwa NSW
 (....we were in the bakery!)

The wonderful B&B we stay at when we go to Merriwa.
Pam and Peter at B&BonBettington are the cheeriest folk I know
and the place is spotless, decorated in old world style and you
get a hearty cooked breakfast and a great chat before heading off.
We have our cuppa out on the balcony through those French doors.

Mrs HM doing the meat prep for the week. It all gets cut up
and packed....

.....into meal-sized portions before being popped into the
$50 freezer that just keeps on going (!)

I found myself a pair of good quality
plum coloured jeans reduced from $70
to $4.99 exactly my size. Frugal much!

A beautiful Italian quill pen and ink - a 50th birthday
present from my wonderful friends Kathy and David.
(p.s. Kathy is a avid crocheter  - her work is extraordinary)


Lovely chatting folks  - have a great rest-of-the-day.


Take care and stay nice too.

Mr HM
