Well Dear Readers
The time has come and we are, as of now, on the way home!! Loved the holiday and have had an absolute ball!!
So! We were picked up by Rowan late morning in the Truck, and taken out to Smiths Falls to have a look at the just completed renovations to their house. Not enough space here to go through an inventory of what had been done (sorry my OCD friends) but suffice to say, the outcome is nothing short of splendid!! The kitchen area is now bright and airy with beautiful tiles as splash areas in the kitchen. Also, something which got Bryan's attention, lights along the inner part at the top of the cupboards which can be set to almost any colour you might like! But of course, those who know Bryan, will know Blue would be the colour of preference. Tulsa (beautiful black dog) loves the new floor because you always know where she is with her claws clicking on the new floor boards!!
From there, we went through Portland (yes! There is a town in Canada called Portland) to a shop called the Village Green in (sorry Rowan! I can't remember the name!) and had a gentle little looky look!! Following this, it was down the road for an ice cream! Mmmmm! Yummmmo!! Izzy decided she'd have this Bubblegum concoction, which surprisingly, was in this hideous fluorescent blue!! Anyhoooo! The result was this little cackling, blue tongued person on a sugar high. Honestly, the girl has me in hysterics with her antics!!!
After this, it was back to the hotel, have dinner, then fall exhausted into bed.
Yesterday, we all went in to the War Museum, which surprisingly didn't go down well with Miss Izzy!! I mean, seriously, what 7yr old little girl wouldn't jump at the chance to crawl over tanks and armoured personnel carriers et al??? So after some pacifying, she realised there might be a shop and all sads disappeared!!! Shades of Miss Fiona!!! If anyone is in Ottawa, the War Museum is certainly a place to visit!!!
After that, it was dinner at Baton Rouge with the best steak I've ever had!!! And I'm told the ribs were to die for. I'll leave that for others to judge!! Good food, good wine then back to the hotel for our last night!!!
So! Last entry folks!!!
Soon back on in Aus!!! Back to little pussycat and home!!
