I remember when I was a little girl I would sit and watch Nana making pies just like the little girl in this picture. Nana would make all kinds of pies, meat, apple, apricot, even at Christmas Nana would bake her special Christmas Pies, I always wondered how she got those edges so neat but it was a secret that she took with her to her grave, and I've never been able to make perfect edges on pies like Nana used to. But then I came across this little story and her secret was revealed..To read how Nana did this click on the book to enlarge it.

For those of you that have been to Jackie's blog would have read 'SANTA HAS TO BE A WOMAN' then this is why I think Santa must be a man:
Santa Claus could never have been a woman!
Who else but a man would:
Be really generous once a year,
Be totally uninvolved the other 11 months,
(And 29 days, we’ll give him Christmas Eve & Day),
And yet think he was a saint?
One more reason Santa has to be a man:
No woman is going to wear the same outfit, year after year.

What Pamela Means
You are influential and persuasive. You tend to have a lot of power over people.
Generally, you use your powers for good. You excel at solving other people's problems.
Occasionally, you do get a little selfish and persuade people to do things that are only in your interest.
You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic “Type A” personality.
You are confident, self assured, and capable. You are not easily intimidated.
You master any and all skills easily. You don't have to work hard for what you want.
You make your life out to be exactly how you want it. And you'll knock down anyone who gets in your way!
You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.
You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.
You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

The Talented One has made this cake for her Local Scout group to have has a Christmas Raffle, the picture does not do it justice, all the decorations were made by the Talented One as was the cake which I assume is a fruit Cake.
Is it any wonder I call her the "Talented one".

SO what is this strange stuff falling from the sky..OMG it's RAINING , strange I know but true. Beautiful steady rain, the plants are smiling the grass is upright. I hope this steady stream lasts all through the night and continues on during the day, we don't want heavy downpours just nice steady rain. It makes me feel like going out there and dancing in the rain just wearing my knickers, but I won't as I don't want the neighbours calling the police.
Rain rain don't go away !!

I was talking with a lady from the water company today and she was saying that at the end of November our water restriction rating will be adjusted at the moment we are on 3a but more than likely we will go to 4, which means no watering of gardens what so ever, unless it's with recycled water from the house. I told her that my garden is so lush as I have drought tolerant
UPDATE ; Weather forecast for tonight - DARK !

3 weeks out of every month myself and my friends get together on a friday night to stitch, takeing it in turns of going to each other's house's, we call it our "stitch N Bitch" night. Sometimes there is more bitchin than stitchin, but we can combine the both as well. It can end up a late night or a early night just depends on what we're doing or how we are feeling. Janita is the "talented" one, she makes and decorates cakes, sews, quilts, cooks, makes jewellery, makes amazing things out of polymer clay. She made and decorated my mother's 80th birthday cake....such a talented
THANKS FOR BEING FRIENDS
My nephew Greg had been wanting to do a tribute to his dad and 2 weeks ago this is what he got, it was taken from the above photo which was published in the Dandenong Journal
I just couldn't believe how lifelike his tattoo is, I am so proud of you Greg and think it's a fantastic way of paying a tribute to your Dad, he not only lives on in your heart but is with you constantly.
I miss Donald very much and think of him every day, he was a wonderful son, brother, husband and father and was well respected by those that knew him. I could talk with him about anything knowing he would never judge but listen but if advise was required he would give it.
RIP my dear Brother xxxx

Day 1, 16th Oct - Plane arriving at 8.45am, left home at 7.30am drove to MelbourneAirport, from there we drove to Parkville where we were staying, caught a tram into Melbourne city and then another one to St.Kilda where we sat in the beautiful sunshine having lunch.
Day 2, 17th Oct - Drove to Ballarat which takes approx 1hour from Melbourne, we stayed the night at Doherty's Ballarat Lodge, we were completely in awe when we got into our room, you walk into a small entrance foyer, to the left was this magnificient room which had a king size bed, 2 king single beds, 2 large leather chairs, desk, coffee table, TV in an enclosed unit, the room was beautiful, to the right of the foyer was the bathroom, large double shower with seperate shower heads, a corner spa, heated towel rails, and off course the toilet. The hotel is set on 7 acres of land, below is a photo of the "secret Garden" which is part of the grounds.
Day 4 - 20th Oct - After breakfast we got ourselves organised and caught a tram into the city, wandered around Myers, then caught a tram to Melbourne Museum, which is next to the Old Exhibition building in Carlton. For a small entrance fee you can spend all day wandering around the different exhibits and interactive areas.
After the museum it was time to take the tram back, collect our bags then on the freeway to Melbourne Airport, flight wasn't departing until 9pm so we had dinner, walked around the airport then sat for awhile until it was time to for Hugs and kisses and see you soon.
Back to work the next day, we had a great time as we always do when we are together, next it's my turn to visit in Adelaide.
