194-200/365

Well another week has flown by already, the last week of school holidays for us.  To tell you the truth I can't remember what we really got up to this past week. There was a day out to have lunch and buy things for the man of the house who will be celebrating a birthday very soon. I had to do the usual things like housework and grocery shopping. There was the triumph of finishing the garter stitch blanket except for weaving in the ends and then I started my cowl which took me a bit to get my head around knitting in the round.  I did learn to do a long tail cast on and so did Miss 10 who also mastered knitting, learnt to cast off, pearl, do a rib and moss stitch, I am proud.  There was a lovely finish to the holidays though, today I celebrated my birthday.  I have just one more year and there will be a milestone to celebrate, oh dear. My family all met down by the water, a spot we all are fond of.  It was hard too, not having my Dad with me for the first time in my life to celebrate my special day... I know he would have enjoyed today had he been here but I know he was in spirit.  
I have much to be so grateful for, another year on this beautiful earth, another year wiser, another year spent with those I love, another year watching my family grow and flourish.
Have a beautiful week my friends.

  2. Oh happy happy happy birthday.....what a gorgeous candid photo of you...one your girls will treasure in years to come. It is terribly hard celebrating milestones without the most special people to us but the best thing you can do is honor them with the celebration and of course it also shows those around us how much we value them too. Glad there was some special memories connected to this almost big birthday. ( how much is your big girl like you- gorgeous) xxxx

  4. Hope you had a great birthday, I love the first B&W photo. By the way those park photos look great, where is that looks like a great kids park. It's hard celebrating milestones when loved ones are not here particularly the very first time so my thoughts go out to you. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane

  5. Happy birthday, such beautiful photos of you and your girls. I think the loss of a parent of someone close makes us even more aware of our blessings and of how much we have to be thankful for. Hoping you have a wonderful year leading up to the milestone, hugs Wendy xx
