Our morning with The Men of the Tree's.

We had an action packed weekend. Firstly on Friday night Daz and I went to see The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged). All 37 plays in 97 minutes. Including Hamlet done backwards and in fast foward mode! Very funny stuff. My dearest sister had the girls for the evening over at her place, 5 children aged 2, 4, 4, 6 and 7! When we rung during interval at 9ish they were all still awake having fun. We picked them up at 11 and took them back home.

Saturday, usual 9 to 5 shift for me. Daz took the girls to their dancing class and then food shopping. Had then both asleep by 7, their usual time and then we just relaxed on the couch.

Sunday, today, was the annual planting day at Whiteman Park for the Men of The Tree's Children's Forrest. This is such a lovely project, the second year we have gone, so much fun and you leave feeling warm and good too. When Grace was named at our wedding in 2004, one of our dear friends brought her a tile in the forrest. Thought it was such a fantastic gift. So we now have gotten Milly one too and I am starting to work my way through my neice and nephews now. The tiles are all put up in this little hut in the bush there, we had fun today finding the girls tiles. Milly refused to stand in front of hers for a snap. She is becoming so stubborn around the camera this child!



We maybe planted 50 tree's between the 4 of us? Daz may have done more, he had a bigger shovel! Milly just enjoyed filling up her bucket with mulch that actually made the path through the bush and water that was supposed to go on the tree once planted. This lady below in green was a fairy who had fairy glitter to sprinkle over the trees to help them grow big and strong. See Milly in the background behind Grace just digging?


So as a result we had a lovely busy family weekend, but have done no sewing!

Sounds like a wonderful weekend Helen. The tree planting and tles sound like a lovely project. I should hunt around and see if there is anything like that over this way.
