Best laid plans....

Funny how the best laid plans never come to fruition! I hoped for a week that it would be all smooth sailing. First we had a phone call from Red on his 8hr drive back to work to say he had an accident involving a rather large kangaroo. I think he was quite shocked by the experience and just needed to talk to someone for reassurance and to calm his nerves. He was about 2 hours away from camp and even though the car was still driveable, we waited anxiously for his call to say he was there. The car needs repairs so I am not sure how he is going to get home for his next shift break.

Then on the following day Ted came to visit me and after staying for a couple of hours, he went home to get ready for his shift at work. I had a call to say that his car had overheated on the way home and the engine had seized.  The upshot is that I became mum's taxi again!

The other thing that I forgot to factor into my plans, was Miss M.  She left for Paris on Friday night, so the whole week has been full of last minute planning and a whole bunch of nerves for me.

I did get some stitching done on the farmyard frolics - block called "What a Stud" but that was all I achieved for my one week's holiday. I still have a whole way to go tho'!

Till next time,


  1. Sounds like you had one of those weeks! Glad to hear everyone is ok.

  2. So glad everyone is ok... those roo's can make an awful mess of your car... I know I have hit a few Oh and emus xxx

  3. What a week for you.. Glad to hear everyone is okay.. but it is terrible when you hit a kangaroo, there is shock and always a lot of damage. I hope this week is much better for you. Love your farmyard frolics block!
