It's My Birthday Today......

I'm older than yesterday.....and all of my friends are coming over to play and they'll all sing Happy Birthday.........
If any of you know this song...feel free to sing!

I've had a great day....lots of phone calls and goodies. I was given some beautiful flowers from Mum & Nadine. Here are some pic's

Not only are they beautiful and they smell great too.
I did not get up to much.....just pottered around. Sarah helped me with some little chores, we played hide & seek (although she always hides in the same place and calls out "I'm Here"), we gardened, play doh'd and spent time in the sand pit and on the swing. But it was a lovely day. Thank you to everyone for your Birthday Wishes, Gifts & Cards.
Now for those of you still singing.......
...Jelly and Ice-cream and Fairy Bread.....and party hats to put on your head. There's gonna be a Birthday Cake and we'll blow out all the candles....1...2...3....4.....hang on a minute or more while I blow out all the rest.....

A Little Mouse in the House.

When I went to make dinner last night - I got out the Cheese and found there had been a MOUSE in the house.

I said....Who's that MOUSE in my HOUSE?? And a little voice said....It's ME, It's Sarah.

Neil's New Old Car.

Wow - what a busy & exciting few months we have had. We had my sister Nadine visit from NZ and it was Sarah's birthday. That was closely followed by a trip to NZ to visit our family & friends. And then I had a few wonderful days away at the Stampin' Up! Convention in Canberra.

And in the middle of all of this happening, we sold one of our cars too. On our return from NZ, Neil was looking through the paper at different things and came across a car that caught his attention. So off he went to look at it. He came home and said he wanted it. So the next day we went back to get it.

TA DAAA....Here it is.......

It's a 1969 Holden Premier. (Bloody good year)!

As you can see - it's Blue with a White roof. The Interior is Black leather - which is all embossed and pleated - so quite fancy. Sorry that's about the extent of my info on it.....motor or mechanical-wise you'd have to ask Neil about it - cause I have NO idea.

We looked on the Internet at the Original TV ad of when it came out....that was a laugh. The ad said....."with extras such as Mudflaps and Wing Mirrors". Yay Yay - we have Extras!

So this is not only Neil's New car but also his new project as he is restoring it. He started straight away and has dismantled the front part already. I'll be adding some updates on it from time to time and keep you posted on the progress.
