Brandon's Year 12 Graduation

What a wonderful night Brandon's graduation was. A couple of photo's didn't turn out, hence, the missing family photo!! Isn't that always the way. Here Brandon is with his favourite Mum (me in red) and much loved  Heather. It didn't take long for all the formal bits to get undone and removed!! The school really presented the night well, very organised, and everyone was in such a happy mood. Pixie and I are just full of pride. After having completed so many years of schooling and to graduate Year 12 is a huge effort. Well done Brandon.

 Here is a photo of a bunch of them! Pixie was trying to be one of the kids too. Brandon, Pixie, Peter and Cory.

These two are great mates. Peter on the left and Brandon. Brandon has chosen really nice friends.

Best wishes and a successful future ahead for you all.
 Back at the home front, Chester has become a father already!! This little chick was hatched 21 days after Chester came to live with us, now that's quick work. There are no other roosters, so Chester is the father for sure. The little chick also has the line of feathers up each side of his/her legs, just like Chester.

 I am going to visit the hospital today to drop of some of the beanies I have knitted for them. It is just a donation for the hospital as they are always after beanies. Perhaps you could visit your local hospital and see if they need anything made too. The beanies are knitted in stocking stitch and garter stitch, nice and plain.

I have been making a Christmas table runner for work and here are the two stitcheries I have done so far. Grand old Father Christmas.

 And some stars with sweet words in them.

We are having a long weekend this weekend for the CHOGM (Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting). The Queen is here with other delegates and here's hoping they come to some worthwhile decisions.

Hoping the weather stays nice this weekend, lots of things I want to do. I now have to look for another knitting project for the night time, so a bit of searching will be done today. Have a great weekend. Regards, Anita.

Great to see everyone had a great time.
And so you should be proud, too. A lot of hard work has gone into bringing up your children. Lovely to see them reaching important milestones. Congratulations.
Cute chick, cute beanies and cute stitcheries!!!
