Well the party is over, no more 21st to be had. We had a bit of a do, a knees up, a partay for the Spare to celebrate him turning 21. It was such a great night too. He had so many friends there and we had a few of ours plus my sister and her family over from the beach. I had to make a speech as TOF isn't a speaker, OMG I was bogging it. No need to, it was fine, and I never have to make another speech again, so my speech making days are DONE!!
And they made me use a microphone! My audience laughed a few times so I must have been entertaining somewhere in my talk. The venue was upstairs at our local tavern and it was excellent. The bar staff on duty were amazing and the food was THE BEST! Curtosey vans took the party goers into town, so with a quick clean up we were out of there by 1am. TOF and I then realised we hadn't had dinner, only a savoury so we did a detour through the golden arches of a drive through Mc Ds.
So my baby is all grown up now. He has gone from baby bottles of milk to a yard glass full of beer!! No more birthday parties to be had for the lads now, well ones that we put on that is.
The other day the Heir and I took the dogs for a walk in my favourite place, Tatua Arboretum. He had never been there so it was nice to show him around.
It was a nice Sunny Winter day,
very mild and perfect for a wee wander.
I found the colourful things!
The Heir loved the Chickens and Roosters like me.
I went to a Book Fair the other day and found these ones. I am half way through reading The Mistress Of Spices, and it is a lovely read. The Scandinavian one is gorgeous of course. Who doesn't need a book on Happy Thoughts? Probably me because my head is constantly full of them. But I think Growing Old Disgracefully will be my new go to book, SO FUNNY!!
Does anyone know what this plant is called? I snapped this off a shrub at a mate of the Heirs, the mate had no idea what it was. All I know is it is gorgeous. Any ideas??
Biggles Mc Big Cat pretty much sums up the last few weeks for me. It has been pretty busy and has had some up and down moments, but nothing I cannot handle and nothing to worry about. Sometimes you just have to put your big girl pants on and get stuck in!!
I got a bit bored with my hair so it has gone back to Blonde today.
Quote from 'Happy Thoughts'
Freedom is not
worth having if it
does not include
the freedom to
Live joyfully and peacefully
knowing that right thoughts
and right efforts inevitably
bring about right results.
