Hubby's 50th

Happy 50th to my Hubby

As Grant's birthday was on a school night we didn't have a party or anything. I still made my husband a cake though, and gave him a present. Can't turn 50 without a slice of cake and a present! 

On the weekend after hubby's birthday we were invited to a family dinner at his parent's house as hubby's Uncle and Aunt happened to be visiting from Melbourne. 

Make a wish... ♥

♥ Greetings from all of us ♥

Free Dress Day and Crazy Sock Day


The day before the last day of Term 2,
the kids had Free Dress Day AND Crazy Sock Day rolled into one.

By giving a gold coin each, 
they were allowed to go to school in normal clothes 
had to wear crazy socks... ☺

The kids had a great time participating, but at 1pm we left school and went home early. It was so nice to let them go home earlier than normal, especially on a Friday afternoon!

Roadside clean-up

Yearly roadside clean-up...

Couldn't walk past this chair and a second one 
which had made its way to the next pile next door! 

Two chairs with plenty of patina - just the way I like it!
