My 30th


Great day! Woke to the girls wishing me a happy birthday, presents from their hiding place under the bed & Jase making me a coffee. Off to Playcenter. Two children who don't usually come in on Friday's popped in with some handmade birthday cards - so sweet! A bunch of flowers arrived at mat time from my brother, Sister in law & son - gorgeous. The children sang happy birthday. Home - a card, some gift vouchers and another package in the mailbox - yeah for me! I then cleaned the windows (have about 50 adults & children coming for a barbecue on the 25th) and then vacuumed up the polystyrene packaging bits the youngest two had strewn all over the living room floor.
Zoom to 6:30pm. Mum & dad arrived with a piano on the back of the ute (my grans one for me) which I'm really looking forward to being able to muck around on. They gave me a coffee grinder & a really nice pillow. Six of us went out for a degustation dinner - my favourite was the linguini but it was all absolutely stunning - great food, great company! This was cancelled last week as I didn't think there was enough interest - a barbecue planned instead - but Jase & Andrew Van Lent the chef made it happen - Thank You.
I was also given a gorgeous Tamsin Cooper broach - greens & pinks - I'll try to put it on here later - so pretty!
Anyway, need to get on with getting ready for visitors this evening! Posted by Picasa

I picked up some photos today - but no haven't used any bits yet - too many other things to do this week - hoping for some space this weekend.
