A day in the City............

A day trip to the city (Adelaide) ....... DH and I started off Friday morning at 7.00 am to the big smoke for the day, Rained off and on most of the trip down .
(Approx 2 1/2 to 3 Hour drive depending on traffic and roadworks)
First stop ............Spotlight purchased a few cards and envelopes and a zip to be Incorporated in the gift I am making in one of the swaps (last of the big spenders LOL)
Next stop.......... DH and I had a nice cup of hot chocolate and a SMALL piece of carrot cake.
Then off to Hettie's Patch
Address: 294 Port Road Hindmarsh SA 5007




This is my first visit to Hettie's....................
Purchased the following ..........
The below is three nice..........absolutely beautiful fabrics with instructions to make a small
bag




And this......bit out of my normal colour range but just fell in love with it
Lovely bunnies on a soft pink ................just gorgeous

Followed by these great fabrics

Red and white ................Have not quite made up my mind what design I will make from these fabrics...................


Next Stop .....................Off to the Marion Shopping Centre
Where Lunch was..............Chinese ............. yum
Couple of hours being pushed and shoved .............. not really a good city shopper
no great purchases there.
Next stop .............Bunnings
DH purchased some new garden tools and I headed straight to the Garden Centre and purchased some Daisy seedlings and Veggie plants for a small Veg we have at home.
Then as we had a dinner appointment with friends back home in a small country town club .... at 6.30pm we started to head home...........
on the way home pasted this great church....... may be a bit blurry as I am in the car taking this photo as we zoom............. past in the traffic.

Home by 6.15pm ..........as DH and I walk in the back door the phone is ringing and the couple we are going out with for tea .....have to cancel.

A little relieved as I am feeling a bit tired.

Hi Marc,
Sounds like a hectic day trip :) It takes us about 3 hours from here to to get to Adelaide, so we must be close:)

A trip to Hettie's ........it's my second home. I couldn't believe the road works when I went to the Riverland the last time. It will be a much better journey when they are finished.
