Last weekend Paul and I spent in Adelaide as we had a reunion dinner on the Saturday night with the group of friends we mixed with when we lived down there over 21 years ago.Some we hadn't seen in many years and had lost contact with.
I had such a good time that taking photos didn't hit my radar!! I did find this photo of the place where we dined last Saturday night. It was the Red Ochre Grill on the Torrens in Adelaide. A lovely dining experience with good company.
This is not my photo - I copied it from a Restaurant review website
In one of my previous posts I featured how we took out a glass door frame from our kitchen. By doing this we were left with unstained floorboards where the panel was taken out.
We had to decide what to do. The floor people could have tried to stain it to match, but we had a feeling it would always look lighter as the polished floor had darkened with age. They suggested they put a 'header' on it, which is what we went ahead with. They cut the floorboards the whole way across and laid wood going in the opposite direction and stained it as close as possible to the existing floor colour. We were happy with the outcome as it looks like it was meant to be there.
For the fashion conscious one of our local fashion boutiques, LamiSaru has developed a website for their clearance items. There are some quite good brand name items at very discounted prices. Take a look at www.electriccharlie.com.au
Over the past weeks I've also been adjusting to a new computer and operating system, which hasn't come without it's frustrations! I think I'm nearly on top of it now and have my settings and programs all installed and inplace.
On the cold winter nights, we've been enjoying kicking back in our recliners and watching The Block and The Renovators. One thing I detest though is the previews...I HATE them, so I close my eyes and my hubby mutes the sound while that's viewing.....that's love!!!
