Stew came home last night with my Birthday Present .. early ... isn't it just beautiful? He is a copper snapper, I love him.... have to find a name for him now...

Here he is on the trellis I painted just this week... I didn't think I would be able to get a fish for the wall quite so soon... so I'm wrapt .... THANK YOU DARLING!
I am now on the lookout for some driftwood/seaweed to put on the left side... to balance it out and make it more realistic... not that I'm really trying for realistic... but BALANCE is important.
Today's jobs are to get last minute stuff for the party.... pick up me cake.... make beds ... bla bla bla. All good!
Expecting one of my dearest girlfriends to arrive today from Coromandel too.... I don't think I have seen her in over a year! Lots of yakking ahead I think!
OK... I'm feeling really dizzy... been blowing up balloons... not the nicest job I can tell ya! Shame I couldn't find the thingee that attatches to the vacum so I didn't have to do all the blowing up.
All on track for a good day tomorrow, just need it to STOP RAINING then all would be perfect. We are in deep shit if it is raining tomorrow afternoon!
I feel every inch of me almost 50 years today... tired.
End of Day: My girlfriend is here, me Aunt and Uncle are here for coffee, at the last count I have 59 cards with more to come! WOOOOO HOOOOO!
NSV: I only had the tiniest piece of cake this evening, felt very good about that! nite nite.
