A lovely day

We had a lovely day yesterday. We choofed off to Old Parliament House to see Mrs Prime Minister - an exhibition about Australia's Prime Ministers' wives - which was closing today. It was quite interesting, with lots of things to look at, including some of their dresses, coats, hats and shoes from the 30s through to the 80s. Our 'first ladies' aren't nearly as high-profile as those in the US or the UK for that matter. But most of them do charitable work and lots of diplomatic work - especially over gazillions of official dinners.

After lunch at the cafe we wandered off through the adjacent gardens and Romily had a fine old time pulling up the grass and playing with twigs. It was a gorgeous day and we took full advantage of it.

This is a tree out the front of our place - as you can see, spring is just around the corner. This is good, as I am very ready for some warmer weather!

I am so glad we went out yesterday, as it's cold and overcast here today. Hmmm. Methinks that's perfect weather for quilting! I'd better get started this afternoon before thoughts of Monday morning interrupt my weekend.
