Rocking this old cottage
Well hello,,, Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Ours was just delightful, we had a rocking good time here at Avondale cottage...
Friday was interesting with a helicopter flying so low over this shabby old cottage, Oh so low it made the windows rattle and the cottage shake, not once or twice but like 10 times . I didn't even get any photo's of it as I was to busy holding things so they wouldn't break,,,mmm not to sure what that was about but as soon as I know I will tell ya.
Anyways there was home grown , homemade pumpkin soup bubbling away on the stove and making the cottage smell Divine
A quick snap of the soup before it was gobbled up by hungry cottage dwellers.
we have had lots of lovely family and friends popping in and staying over at the cottage, I am so glad they all find Avondale as inviting and cosy as I do.
Mums rose is loving it out here, woke to yet another adorable bud.
My high school Besty and her family have been coming and staying for weekends and her sweet teenagers have been staying the holidays here at the cottage with hubby n I.
My BF and her hubby came and stayed over the weekend to collect her eldest who had stayed for the week.
Saturday morning just us girls went into our little local country town to pick up supplies and just happened to stumble ( lol OK so one of my fave haunts) across an op shop.. I got a cool little basket, yet another crochet knee rug ( can never have enough, even though I am learning to make them myself ;-) a little cane and wood try and some sweet little bottles.
Then it was back to Avondale for a wee rest under the big ol tree in the yard.
Then the male kin decided it was to quite in the cottage and came to join us,, Our quite time was then non existent, trashed by 4 noisy boys and Pipin ruff n tumbling,,,but I must admit, it was a great afternoon.
The local rural fire brigade where on hand, I am just glad the breeze was blowing away from the cottage and as of yet haven't even smelt the smoke..
Until next adventure
