What a weekend.
My 53rd Birthday was yesterday
and today was Mothers Day.
It has been a lovely couple of days hanging with my boys mostly at home. I have no issue with getting older, I am happy where I am in life so getting older is not a problem. I have a good friend for a hubby, two great sons, lots of lovely friends, my health, and a hearty sense of humor, what else could I possibly want?
My three blokes know me so well that even my gift
was wrapped in spotty paper!
Thanks to them I am going to smell
And there was CAKE!
My lovely sister Helen sent me a parcel containing lots of lovely jewellery and a Russian Doll card, because she knows exactly what I love!
TOF and I went to the Gordonton Market in the morning where I bought two felted fairies and two lovely plants that have been potted. Last night TOF and I went to our local pub the Te Rapa and had a scrum-diddly dinner and a glass of ale, perfect end to a great day.
Saturday afternoon the Spare who is an apprentice builder arrived with all his tools to help do some mods to our deck. He framed up and added trellis to one end while TOF painted in preparation for the next step.
The top coat of paint when on this morning and the roll up blinds got installed. Pretty happy with the end result and the fact that we will have a dry deck in winter, and a fabulous place to spend time on a sunny wintery day.
The Spare arrived bearing gifts for his mother and the most funniest card that most mothers would relate to. The Heir has Game of Thrones season Four on order for me. How loved am I feeling right now?
My aging Canary George Michael isn't his normal self of late. I think he is not long for this world the poor old bugger, so today TOF and I went and got him some room mates to keep him company.
Two sweet little Roller Canaries that have moved into the Avery and seem more than happy with their new digs. George even perked up a bit. Still to be named so known as C1 and C2 at the moment. We have been sing the Bananas in Pyjamas song but 'Canary' instead of 'Banana'. As in:
"Canaries, in the Avery, are flying everywhere".
TOF cooked us a beautiful dinner of Rack of Lamb, roasted spuds, and greens from our garden. We followed that with homemade apple crumble and french vanilla ice cream.
Thanks TOF you are a STAR!!!
and we had our photo taken.
I am one lucky mum/wife.
