THINGS WHICH HAVE GIVEN ME A BIG SMILE TODAY...~~


Hi ladies..

well it has been another miserable day "weather" wise in Melbourne today and after having so many years of NO RAIN/hot weather...this "sea change" HAS really been a CHANGE for us here in Melbourne Victoria Australia...~~~~~

with SPRING just a few days around the corner I think we are ALL looking forward to it...??

SO just a few items which have made me SMILE today....

Lovely Grace Kelly book...how beautiful was she???

My cute little summer pink roses straw hat I purchased yesterday...

My gorgeous magazines....from Romantic Homes...Victoria...Jeanne D'arc..(LOVE THIS!!)..

& the CUTEST LITTLE TOY BLACK poodle "TOY" dog my hubby bought for me on his interstate travels...

Hey..my "MR SOOTY" is 11.5 yrs old...(he used to be as black as this little fella)..

BUT I told him to "POSE" for me with his new best friend...& i think the portraits are just sooo cute...??

last but not least....Mr Christian asked me this morning when i had arrived home from taking dad swimming if i could go into the kitchen & get him a bottle of water...

SURE....but that was a PLOY....the postie had been whilst I was out...& MR C had lovingly laid out his "BACHELOR OF BUSINESS degree...ACCOUNTANCY" certificate to surprise me...

(i knew he had graduated but to ACTUALLY see the final qualification with his NAME written thereon is fabulous)...
I now know how chuffed my parents were when i graduated some 100 years ago!!~~~

So 21yo son has HIS DEGREE!!!

23 yo son still studying for his Law degree!!

I am a proud OLD MUM...(sorry for being a bit self indulgent)...

have a great week...

xx andrea

I can't think of a nicer place to be than on your sidebar!!
Congrats to your son for his achievement, can see you are very proud!
Wasn't it nice to meet so many like minded people at the fair.
Methinks I might give it a go myself perhaps......
