Birthday Surprise

Hi All
  It was my birthday on the 28th May, and the kids organised a lunch at a local club.  My son offered to drive us ( he lives with us) and we set out.
When we arrived DS said his sister was in the back room.
Well, she was, with a bunch of other friends, all gathered for a surprise celebration of my husband & my 25th wedding anniversary, which was on the 24th May.
What a surprise, we had no idea.  We have never made a huge fuss of our anniversary with the kids, celebrating it quietly ourselves.  The kids all wished us happy anniversary on the day, and while I thought that they may have acknowledged that it was a milestone, I wasn't upset as we never made it a big deal.
I never thought that they would book a room., invite heaps of friends and actually recreate our wedding cake, a three tier pavolva.
Needless to say I am proud of all of them, and we had such a good time.

I had allowed for lunch in WW programme, but the array of drinks and chocolates and pavolva totally blew that.

Back on the programme today, all is not lost.

Hi Again

Hi All,

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, just blogland.

I have joined up with a 12" block swap and am loving it.  Not only do you get to create new patterns, but you get surprises in the mail.

I also joined a pass the parcel quilt group which is so much fun too.

We are back from a flying trip around the west of NSW, including a visit to Dubbo Zoo, which was great.

Hope to most more frequently than in the last months.

I have joined Weight Watchers and am determinded to lose 15kg by Christmas.  My flying suit is getting a  little snug.

All for now
