Pink roses and a giant pompom!

Dear daughter has just made her first video, a tutorial on making a giant fur pompom.
Playing her own background music on the keyboard and doing the filming, she had fun making this at her apartment.   Now she has a few more  ideas and wants to make more videos. 
So if you have a spare moment please go and take a look

The 25th January marks our 30th wedding anniversary and in some ways it seems such a long time ago and other times it has gone by in a flash.
Friends have loaned us their apartment right on the beach at Noosa Heads - Australia, so we plan on going away for a few days to see some sun and dip our toes in the water.

Thank you for stopping by to see what's going on in my little corner of the world.
Do hope all is well with you and that your week is going great and now I wish you a wonderful weekend ahead

  36. Hello Carolyn, your daughter’s video is very cute – I’ve just watched it and left a thumbs up.

    I do hope you had a wonderful anniversary and enjoyed your stay at Noosa Heads – we’ve been there! Terry and I went to Queensland the very first time we visited Australia. Our son and his now wife Karen were boyfriend and girlfriend back then so we only stayed with them for two out of the nine weeks we were in Australia – as we felt we needed to give them their space. It’s different now they have their two little girls as we always want to spend as much time as possible with them. They recently returned to Australia after spending Christmas and the New Year with us, so we are feeling a little blue at the moment and have already started saving for our next trip out to them.

    I hope the New Year is being kind to you. Barbara xx


Thank you so much for visiting Draffin Bears.
It always makes me happy to read your comments
and I look forward to visiting you.

Carolyn xx
