Today I'm another year older but the numbers don't seem to bother me anymore. Made it through another year healthy and happy, a few ups and downs but hey, that's life. Lots to be thankful for - fab husband, love where we live, food on the table, great kids and furbabies. Doing a job I love (most of the time, lol). It's all good.
We kind of celebrated last night as our neighbour officially started her holidays so the four of us went to the pub and had dinner and drinks on the patio. She mentioned my birthday which apparently secures free dessert and Kate Hardy eat your heart out, I had the world's most fabulous Creme Brulee. The waiter took a group pic and they printed it and put it in a card for me to take home. It was lovely. Then we came back to our place and played some cards and hung out. It was a great early birthday and a nice way to kick off K's holidays.
Today is groceries and laundry etc. but I do believe my dh is making barbequed ribs for dinner - his specialty. The kids had some prezzies for me this morning that have made the house a little prettier.
My sister also called this morning and they are coming for a visit next weekend so we're looking forward to that - the first time she's going to be here for an extended visit and not just a few hours. My sister is married to my husband's brother, so it's always good times when we get together. :-)
For now - the sun is shining and the washer has stopped so it's clothes on the line time. I expect it will be pool o'clock later.....
