Feelin' 50s

I love this outfit!
I wore it last week to teach P.E. of all things. I knew I needed something I could move in and still be decent, and also something that would be cool in the warmer weather we've been having lately. I had intended to wear a polo shirt, then forgot while I was getting dressed that morning. As it was, I spent the day feeling pretty, and feminine and fun. I couldn't have asked for more, and I will definitely be wearing this again.
(please excuse my rather tired look, the photo was taken at around 9pm)

It's been funny having chooks. One of Andrew's tends to lay really big eggs - the one on the left weight a whopping 93 grams, but only contained a single yolk! We've had eggs without a proper shell. And recently Daisy, our neighbour's chook, has started to lay. Because she's still young, most of her eggs are small.

And one looked normal but had two tiny yolks! I can't wait to see what comes next...

Mum's First Quilt

It's been a couple of months now since Mum finished her first ever quilt. In all honesty, she did the actual hand quilting, while I did all the cutting and construction. Still, she spent ages lovingly quilting words about love and family in both English and Burmese, and finally gave it to the Burmese family she has been working with (she tutors the mother in English through AMES - a great program if anyone is interested)
