Latest News from My Happy Place...

Hello, my friends!

Can you believe it's nearly May?

It's been such a busy few months time has just slipped away!

My youngest son, Thomas, will be turning 30 in May - goodness, where has that time gone? Our eldest, Daniel will be 34!

Do you feel the years are getting shorter or is it just because we are getting older?

I try to take the opportunities to visit friends and family when we can and we are planning a holiday to Western Australia later in the year.

Meet our newest member of our family - Millie

We adopted Millie from the Greyhound Adoption Program SA - she is nearly 4 years old and a certified lounge lizard. She's very gentle and loves a cuddle. It's great to have a dog in our family again!

Last Sunday I went with friends to a Harry Potter High Tea. We decided to dress up each choosing a different character. We had a lovely afternoon, well liked after by the organisers - Lady Green's High Tea (

Here's a few photos from the event.

I'd like to share some photos of my art creations made over the past couple of months.

#100funfabfaces challenge

My friend, Wendy and I, attended Studio Vino (in Adelaide for another art class. We painted Monet's Garden - our interpretation. The classes are very relaxed and loads of fun! You can enjoy a glass of wine and snacks as you paint. You follow along with the teacher and paint a canvas to take home. You don't even have to paint the lesson - you can do your own thing!

Here's our results

Lastly, I'd like to share with you some watercolour pandas I painted for my sister-in-law, Christine. She celebrated her 60th birthday and has loved pandas forever!

She certainly loved them!
