Making me happy this week is celebrating my husbands birthday!!! He hit the big 50 this year!
The best part has been celebrating with family and friends.
The day before we had a lovely lunch with friends of ours that we've been friends with for years...as long as we've been married. The food was delicious and the company fantastic. Lots of laughs and fun and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
We also had a wonderful evening, celebrating with my husbands family. My Mother in law is a wonderful cook and dinner was amazing. Spanakopita (spinach triangles), pastitsio, Greek salad and potato salad and we finished off with rice pudding (my boys absolute favourite) and chocolate, hazelnut liqueur cheesecake (my new favourite ha ha)
It was such a great night and so much fun... especially when the youngest grandchildren taught my MIL how to dance Gangnam style.. She has a fantastic sense of humor. Too much food and too much laughing, but it was the best!!!
On the day of Mike's birthday we ended up going to the movies in the evening.. We went Gold Class... something we've never done before and it was wonderful. Will definitely be doing this again. Nice comfy recliner chairs to sit in and dessert and coffee served to our table! The movie wasn't bad either!!!
Hubby is yet to use his birthday present... a trip in a glider plane over the Sunshine coast hinterland. He will be allowed to take over the controls while he's up there, on his way gliding down to the ground. I hope he enjoys it!
I'm in a red and white swap with my online group Friends in Stitching and we have our opening night next Friday. This is my parcel winging it's way to my partner, Peg. Look out for the Postie Peg!!!
Hope you're having a lovely weekend.
Ours has started out beautifully with lots of rain overnight and still overcast and showery today. The rain has been a long time in coming and it's so needed here where I live. Being on tank water, we appreciate every drop we get and the tank has been getting very low lately... so it's so nice to see the rain and hear it flowing into the tank!!!
Have a great day!!!
