Last Saturday my very dear mother in law had a birthday she was 87 years old and we could not all get down there but our daughter Andrea took her two and Rob and I went and we had a lovely time in the back garden. Great Nanna's now powered scooter was a very popular thing to play on. The sun was out for a lovely day's visit.
Four generations of a family that is filled with much love and happiness we are truly blessed. One day I will tell you this lovely great grandmothers story about her life and the path that has lead her to this very moment on this very day.
"Happy 87th birthday" dear mum, you are very special to us all
On the way home to our daughters house we simply could not go past the boats, this little man our grandson loves them very much so here is poppi and his mummy and sister sitting on the side of the mordiallic creek watching the boats come home for the night.
That was a very special day.
Then another special day. Monday
This is Mr Jess.
And Monday it was off to visit another two of our grandchildren and here we are in the park for a winter rush around and a game or two. they had nanni try out the swings and the monkey bars, also a game of chase and cricket. we were all very tired and our cheeks glowed red from rushing about in the cold but it was such a lot of fun.
Higher nanni! higher! miss Floss wanted to show me just how high she could go then it was my turn and she laughed because nanni was not game to go as high as she did.
Our home is slowly turning back into a house again and I no longer have to sleep in a room filled with most of the next two rooms as well lol lol lol! it is by no way of the imagination finished but the front veranda has been put back on and when the tin roof is up then we can get to painting this part and I will put a nice comfortable chair out there and then sit awhile with a cup of tea and watch the world pass me by just for a moment or two.
And today sadly this is the price we pay for progress, up the road they have taken down a pine and two old elm trees so the new road to the new freeway can turn the corner and while I am pleased about the new freeway diverting the traffic away from our small town loosing the trees that have been there for many years and in fact the two elms were planted in remembrance of two soldiers who never came back from the 1st world war it is a sad day to see them come down. You can see the two elms just before it was their turn to tumble to the ground.
some colour from my garden today.
On a happier note my husband comes in lst night and said "well honey! you had better start to choose the colours for the rooms we are almost finished in" what! I said when do you have to know and he tells me O! heaps of time, tomorrow would be good. So I have been looking at all the colours around me to try and find the walls, the dado, the skirting colours I rushed out and got some sample pots and I have discovered it is very hard to choose colours so rushed and so he is going to have to wait~I simply cannot decide! sorry hubby!
This is my week thus far O! along with cooking for 35 men, working two days and feeding a man and his apprentices, washing the laundry, packing my eBay sales, ironing, feeding the dog and talking to family on the phone..................I think I am a bit tired but then again I am a woman!((smiles))
to all my dear friends on this Thursday - Happy blogging to you all.
