Today, once everyone is awake and feeling human again... we shall be going into Hamilton to pick up a hire car for Mum and Ron.

After that we will probably have lunch at the mall.

Then we will be picking up the cake for the party tomorrow.

I'm really excited to see it!  I hope it is exactly what I wanted.  Time will tell.  I won't be posting a photo of it until after the party... can't have my Mum or anyone else seeing it before then.

I showed Mum and Ron the photo boards last night, they were really impressed and happy with them.  Well except for one photo I took of her last year, when she had a face mask on... so her face was all black!  Heee hee.

Right, better get a move on... the washing still has to be done, kids fed and so on.


It's a mad house here! I will be "missing in action" till much later.

 ABOVE:  Mum loved her new apron.  I gave it to her early, as it's a 'no gifts' day tomorrow.

ABOVE:  the big 'kids' had fun in the late afternoon throwing a frizbee.  My poor plants got a bashing!

ABOVE: Ron hauling Dante off to look at his new clothes in a mirror down the hallway... he ended up putting him on the toilet seat so he could see himself.  lol

ABOVE:  We had a full house for dinner... Kelly and Rena, and Russell and Ange came out.

As we have an early start in the morning... it's sign off time and hopefully early to bed.


  1. I hope everything goes well while your mum and Ron are visiting and everyone has a great time.

  2. Enjoy every minute of it and create lots of memories xx
