Happy Australia Day everyone :)
This cow is nothing to do with Australia Day, but rather is a clue to where we have just spent 2 lovely, relaxing days and nights with friends who moved away from Perth - in the lovely country town of Cowaramup! It's much better if you say the name out loud, it has a lovely ring to it! There are plasticky/concrete? cows up and down the high street, and some even have 'moo' sounds emanating from them! Nearly as impressive as the real camels I saw sharing a field with cows on the return journey to the big smoke. I kid you not, - yes I thought I was seeing things too, but the other passengers in the car verified it for me.
I had to include a pic of my lovely Christmas present made by my Mum, it slowly made its way here, was unwrapped in a rush and very much appreciated by its new owner. My favourite mode of transport in my arty dreams, in my favourite colour, on a squishy, soft cushion cover made with lots of love - another little lift for the spirits :)
One thing I did take away from the break was that I really am too stressed most of the time and that I need to make some big changes - will 2016 be my year to stress less? I hope so.
