Any weeds at your place?

We have had a fair bit of rain during winter which we keep being told was very unusual although it did remind me of the winters we used to have but perhaps not as cold. So now we have weeds everywhere which are very hard to keep under control when you have 1/2 acre and are getting a bit long in the tooth!

I won a Fitbit!

A friend and I go to a restorative stretching class for over 55s which is part of our Regional Council's CHANGE Project and today there was a launch event held in our city library so we thought we would go along and see what happens....and I ended up winning a Health and Fitness Pack worth $150 which includes a Fitbit!

A visit to a unique train station


Today we drove down the Range to visit Spring Bluff which is a little train station tucked away halfway down the Murphys Creek Road which many Aussies may have heard about during the 2011 floods due to the loss of life and damage done to that area when the 'inland tsunami' hit Toowoomba. During the Carnival of Flowers there are diesel train rides from the Toowoomba railway station to Spring Bluff and the tickets are always sold out well in advance.

Sally tricks Nanna AGAIN!

As mentioned in my post Farewell Sally! I had intended writing a little story for my grandchildren so will finish it off and they can read it while on school holidays.

Queens Park Botanic Gardens

As I mentioned in my last post we visited another of  major attractions in our CBD on Thursday ....Queens Park.... although the correct name now is Queens Park Botanic Gardens. It was a dreary day with rain threatening much of the time we were there but fortunately it didn't arrive until the evening which was great for the many visitors to the gardens who were viewing them before the big rush started today.
