SOME PHOTOS OF MUM'S 88TH BIRTHDAY "TEA PARTY"!!


Hi ladies, well mum's 88th birthday celebrations have come & gone and I must say i was pretty tired after all the cooking and cleaning...

But it was SOO well worth it...~~~~

Mum got SUCH a surprise as dad had managed to keep it a secret..

We had about 17 guests....
Lots of gorgeous roses..some bought...most from gardens ...
Byron surprised her with a visit...
lots of lovely pressies for her..
lots of yummy food...little snippets shown...

& everyone watched the MELBOURNE CUP on tv...!!~~

Wonderful day for mum and I have included a little photo of her...

(MUM is the one in the white clothing..on the right hand side of picture...)..
looking pretty good for 88 years old i think??~~~

SOOTY with a french chic BLUE ribbon around his neck to ADD to the party atmosphere!!~~

& last but not least...Byron drove to Chadstone yesterday to "retrieve" my laptop which I had kind of messed up...

MMM!! I had actually managed to put 2 x CD's in the disc part of the computer..
They hadn't seen too many of that type of a problem before!!

BUT all is good now...& just before MR B flew home interstate today, he showed me how to BUY songs from ITUNES...

OH YEAH!!!

I am now going a bit psyhco buying lots of tracks which I love...& I know how to do it ... & i dont have to put any cd's into my computer...

YIPPPPEE~~~~ it is quite liberating for "the old girl" to download" songs & then play them!!! whilst typing this..

Neil Diamond....Tina Turner...KC & The Sunshine Band..(don't laugh)...& LOTS more...

I am having fun!!~~

wow how totally gorgeous is your Mum?! Looks like she had a marvellous surprise party. I have to tell you that your world famous sausage rolls really are just that. My youngest took some for her school lunch that were left overs from our "meeting" They were a huge hit at her school I can tell you!!!
