Cast and Crew
The Golfer:: My loving husband of some 20 years (yes, I was a child bride!), who likes nothing better than flogging a little white ball around the green fairways (and hopefully not getting into the rough) of his local golf course.
Ma & Pa Kettles:: My parents who live in the country, fondly known as The Kettles. Sadly my gorgeous Dad died in 2015, so it’s just Mum now.
MyDearFIL & MIL:: The Golfer’s Dad & Mum who have now both passed away.
LittleBigBrother:: My brother who is younger than me, but at 6 foot, definitely bigger than me!!
DocSisterInLaw:: LittleBigBrother’s wife (who has a Doctorate!)
Poppet:: My beautiful niece, and daughter of LittleBigBrother and DocSisterInLaw
(blis) n. 1. perfect happiness; serene joy
Obviously the collective noun for a group of stitchers!!
- Day 10 of the @jeanakimball #50daysofhandquilting2021 and I have 1 zinnia quilted and another started. Slow going as I feel my way with this quilt #zinniaquiltSo, that’s all the snakes made, now to cut more of the joining section and piece the blocks #snaketrailsal #gettingthereslowly #handpiecing #fiveandtenThought it might be fun to do a “what do you hand piece with?”This quilt weighs a tonne dry and double that when wet! Just wrestled it onto the clothes horse to dry in the Spring sunshine ☀️ #mrsbillingscoverlet #washingmywinterquilt

I’ve been a bit of a goose, a silly billy, and an idiot and done this to myself out on my walk, tripping over one of those rotten furry acorn things ….. I also twisted both ankles, scraped my knuckles … Continue reading
I haven’t been down to the Park for a walk for a long time – who knows why? – but ventured down last Sunday. It dawned a clear but chilly morning – not that I was up with the dawn, … Continue reading

I’ve had a hankering for, amongst a legion list of other things, a walk in the countryside. Suddenly, Sunday week ago I realised a pretty good substitute was on my doorstep. There’s a big park nearby, within walking distance, with … Continue reading
My goodness there’s lots to see at the moment on my walks…….here’s just a sampling MyWalkingFriend and I have chosen a new walk for ourselves, both wanting something/somewhere different to our normal BC walk. So we’re traveling streets we used … Continue reading
I’ve started regular walks with my walking friend again; she’s no longer able to work and lives on her own so she’s keen to see people. We walk 2 days a week (suitably masked, sanitised and keeping a health distance) … Continue reading
Thank you so much for your supportive and encouraging comments on my last post. It’s good to know I’m not alone feeling as I do. But given that so many of you expressed similar feelings, I reached out to my … Continue reading

I took these photos at the end of May, but I figure it’s not too late to be sharing them with you. There seems to be (still) an inordinate amount of footpath, tree and road work happening in the neighbourhood. … Continue reading
