The Blinds are Down...must be Summer!!!!
Well we have pulled our blinds down to protect us from the heat,summer is here with a vegence,in winter we put them up and let the sunshine gently warm the bedrooms, but summer is a different story,you could literally cook a meal on the floor without these wonderful blinds,behind them are french doors that belong to the 2 front bedrooms.
I have not taken a photo yet of our home with the Christmas lights up I will do that this week.
I want to give you something to think about and hopefully have a little smile.As you know Mums birthday is on Sunday but her lunch is Saturday.There are about 30 coming and she has chosen her little list of favourite people herself,it won't be all family,you know the neices and nephews that never call and the next time she says she would have seen them was from her box!!so she said blow them I will just ask the ones that call etc.
Of course there are my brother and myself and our families ,our son has to work so sadly his family can't come,precious Stephen says he almost missed it altogether so he is coming for sure,Mums baby brother and wife 80 and 78 years, these 2 are very prim and proper,then there are friends we have had for years,young ones ,adopted great grandchildren,that have adopted Old Nana..then there is Glor she is a darling friend that unfortunately cannot complete even a short sentence without the dreaded "F" word lol but she rarely says it in front of mum!but she is hysterical and a laugh a minute,there are Malcom and Ann Marie,what sweet names, these are bikies that we ride in a bike group with, they are rough and tumble have hearts of gold and adore Mum and she adores them the problem is they are always in black leather,bad to the bone and Malcom has long hair down to his waist,well the middle bit from the forhead to the nape it is a mowhawke always bright blue and the back long part is black!! (this couple are in their late 50's) Ann Marie has long overdyed blonde hair to her waist with touches of purple and sparkles all through it,she looks like she has been on a horse for a month from all the accidents she has had,O'h lord Ican just see the noses go up when they walk in, Aunty Rae will need oxygen and we will have to tell Uncle John to close his mouth as it will drop open..Glor will say "Who the F are they"! the cousins that are a few classes above us will probably choke on their ,vegetarian puffs so carefull prepared by moi...I can't wait for this day..when Mum chose who she wanted I kept saying "are you sure" these are our friends Mum..well she said "They are mine too I love em".
You can't judge a book by its cover can you..these people are the ones that ring up and ask to have a chat to nan,tell her all their troubles and secrets,then she tells me,remind me never to ask her to keep a confidence, her age has taken that talent away from her lol. she has made her choice for her special day,and I think it is going to be very interesting to say the least!
So happy Birthday Joycie, thank you for all those that have sent her you best wishes,we appreciate it.
We are ready now all the lovely fresh fruits have been bought ready for the watermelon basket,pavlova is ready,slices,cakes,meat dishes vegetarian dishes,punch ready to be put together, so roll on Saturday I can't wait till I can say "thank goodenss thats over" I am pooped.I am a very proud daughter,as this lady has been both Mum and Dad to us and so to still have her is a double blessing.
She is a Lady in every sense.Bless you Mum,have fun and if the others don't like your friends they can always go home lol.
