HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRIFFIN


7 today... getting to be a big boy!

Joel and I will pop out today to buy the cake... I KNOW I should bake one.... I KNOW!!! But I just ain't gunna. It is so much easier to buy, and I am no cake baker! I just don't make nice cakes.

Not much else to yak about right now, got to make the lunches now....and make the beds, feed the dog, tidy up the mess around here.... so much to look forward to!

Till later....

Walked the kids to school (Joel and Teddy came too).... but we didn't go into the school due to the POX..... had a lovely chat with another new neighbour too... Bill (wife Mary)... nice guy! A Grandfather too, they look after their 4 yr old grandson while his parents work.... and they will be taking him to school every day next year too. It's nice getting to know our neighbours! I am thinking of organising a "Street BBQ" once Christmas and New Year are over.

I have really enjoyed today, no stress at all! Joel has been a delightful little boy to have around...

Stew came home early today so he could spend some time with the kids..... we went out to the airport so Joel could see the big planes landing.... then we picked up Pizza for dinner (Griffin's Birthday treat) then it was cake time:

My god that chocolate cake was delicious! We only ate about half of it... so the rest is going to work with Stew tomorrow so it's not under my nose!

End of Day: DELIGHTFUL day. nite nite.

  5. Here is my tip regarding a birthday cake. Go and buy a packet of Betty Crocker Fudge Cake - it was to be this exact one - It is amazing!!! Easy to make, delicious rich dark chocolate, never fail and it comes with choc icing!! I only ever use this now for cakes. It is better the day after though with regard to cutting.

  17. Happy birthday Griffin!

    How many years now till you're childfree????????

    Glad you managed to find a solution to the baby home alone scenario. It's not a nice feeling to have that kind of informaton and not to act on it. Too many people turn a blind eye to what's happening in their neighbourhoods. You did the right thing.

    We've just been through a month's with the Nia Glassie trial. Glad to see justice was served. But the things that have come out at the trial make you sick inside. The sad thing was that lot's of people knew there was abuse going on - but no one said a thing.

    I'm going to shut up now before I get too carried away.

    Just good on you mate for saying something.

  19. That's how it works? I insult you on someone blog and then you become a follower on mine? You respond so nicely to abuse.

    I have to say that I am honored - truly - no kidding mate.
