Happy Birthday :) To Me :) :) :)

A beautiful book from my Dad and Stepmum.

Beautiful candles from Margaret and her boys...

PJ's that won't eat my tree seedlings. hehe Thanks Margaret. :)

Booties for home. Thanks to Russell's Mum :)

Votive holder by Jamie Durie :) Yummm, love his stuff...

Tulip made from Polymer clay by Russell... with two tea lights...

$50 from Russell and the boys for plants. :)

Yep you guessed it. It was my Birthday yesterday... I was very spoilt. :) I baked a roast chook for dinner and a Pavlova for dessert on the Sunday night as I really wanted to get back on the straight and narrow from the Monday... (Yes am on a diet... the first in my life so to speak... Did try Herbalife before but can't swallow the horse pills this time around...) So far have lost 3.5kg in two weeks. Did well the first week, not so great the second but still a loss. :)

Back to my Birthday... I had the most lovely day. We didn't really do too much but it was lovely as Russell had the day off and was able to enjoy the day with me :)

Joshua had a Student Free Day but Timothy still had to go to school. We did spend the day mostly in Warwick as we had some things to get for our upcoming camping trip. I also had to attend the last of my course that I have been doing for the last six weeks. It is called 'Do as I do' and is about identifying your child's anxiety and how to best deal with it... Has been very interesting to say the least and has helped me allot even with my own anxiety...

So all in all here I am entering my 40th year of life and I can truly say that I am having the time of my life... How blessed am I??? Yes, I know I am very, very blessed...

Cheers Damaris

Thank you so much Donna... And a Happy Belated Birthday to you as well for Yesterday... Happy Birthday for your son later this week... I could go on but won't. hehe

Am actually in my 40th year of life but only 39. That one year is especially important to me... So much to do and achieve before I am 40... :)
