I went to bed last night young and woke this morning a half a century, gosh how did that happen? Well day by day I guess rolled into year by year, never really noticed it happening actually, never really minded that I was on the down hill run to half a century, now though ouch I have landed with a bump. Birthday presents in bed, from my darling, long suffering, devoted, hubby. A gorgeous gold thumb ring that for the moment I will wear on my ring finger, my hands are swollen, firstly because of hormones secondly because of heat. Then to my surprise a birthday notice in the newspaper, right next to the funeral notices how appropriate, a colourful balloon edged box with our special code word SHMILY and Happy Birthday Darling Love you heaps written. I nearly missed it, luckily Adrian was sitting in bed beside me waiting for me to see it. He said something, can't for the life of me remember what and it made me look at the page again, in terror actually that my photo might be in there, horror, luckily it wasn't but my birthday notice was. Really sweet I love that guy!!!!!! SHMILY you're wondering aren't you ? Well I'm going to let you wonder a little more.
This delightful old car sits in a paddock on the way to Alicia's house and I have wanted to snap it for ages. I got a great zoom lens for Christmas once again from my darling and I hung out the sun roof of our car on Sunday and snapped away. The zoom is great. Mind you right now I feel a bit like this car looks.
Thistle seeds about to fly away, gorgeous don't you think?
Like I said the other day the last 50 have been a blur really, sometimes dashing by so fast it's been hard to keep up. I think tonight the girls have a surprise planned, no idea what, but I know I'm not cooking yeah for you girls !!!!! We head off to Sydney on Friday for 3 nights with Carmel and Merv in the big smoke, well it is for us anyway, I am excited about that. So tomorrow when I wake up it will be just another day in the next 50 wonder what that will be like. Have a great day where ever and what ever you are doing. No power today so heading off to get a pedicure and nails done my birthday treat, yeah!!!!!
Oh and SHMILY well .. See How Much I Love You........cute hey!
