Good morning everyone, how was your week and how are things going? Are you achieving all that you have planned?
We have had a good week with a trip to Melbourne on Tuesday for my husband to see a bone specialist. This is a long story and I might write about it one day, maybe when we see a positive outcome.
After seeing the specialist we went to the Queen Victoria Markets. We really enjoy going there. There are heaps of different stalls from clothing, shoes, make up, belts, hand bags, really anything that you can get at the shops but slightly cheaper.
No 1 son collects belt buckles and no 2 son got his first leather belt and buckle. No 2 daughter got a lovely stainless steel bangle with her name on it.
After looking at the stalls we head over to the fruit and vegetable sections and then into the small goods. This area would have to be my husbands favourite as he loves looking at all the smoked meat and fish. He looks so that he can get ideas for us and how we can handle our meat at home and different things we can do with it.
I really like the butchery section, they sell anything from fish through to goat. I love looking at all the different cuts of meat.
After that we headed into the cafe for a bite for lunch and a cuppa, a bit of a refresh and renewing before we head out on our way home.
On the way home we went via Geelong and looked around the beach area and went for a drive around before heading to Hogs Breath for tea. This is our most favourite treat and although we only go once or twice a year we all look forward to it.
The rest of the week was spent schooling and doing our general run of the mill jobs. We were going to have a sewing day with friends but my friend was sick so we stayed home. We did have some friends for tea on Friday night which was nice.
We started music lessons yesterday so our Saturdays have changed again, but it was nice to get started on lessons and back into it.
The new turkeys are settling in well and are roaming around the yard during the day and even up onto the back verandah, which I must admit is better than the piglets. We have had our piglets looking through the glass on the back door.
This week coming will involve school and sewing and gardening. Our Tuesday night bible study on Revelation is starting this week and we all look forward to it. We might go and pick blackberries and it looks like being warm this weekend so we might make it to the beach.
What have you been doing, I would love to hear about it.

These are all great thought provoking posts that make us think, which is good. If you didn’t get a chance to have a look then click on the title to pop over.
Thank you again to each and every one of you who takes the time to link up. I’ll say it again – I really enjoy reading all your posts and I am being challenged and I am learning so much.
My encouragement for you this week is to look at how you deal with disappointments and challenges, and how we teach our children to handle it. That is how I have been challenged this week.
May you all be blessed this week as you teach, work and love your family.
