Our Big Party Day......

Yesterday ...29th March... we had a big  March celebration day here at my place.........

One grand daughter had her 20th Birthday and also graduated from Uni  with a Batchelor of Creative Arts degree in Media studies....

Another grand daughter had her 15th Birthday...

One grand son had his 13th birthday .....
And..
One Son in Law turned 50....

The whole day was organised by my daughter Mary and her daughter Christy...(Miss 20)
 All the food was brought here already prepared ... only the final cooking on the BBQ  and the hot chips in the air cooker had to be done. My grand daughter Lisa's fiancee did all the outdoor cooking
 and my grand daughter Elizabeth supervised the hot chips.....
Hubby and I were 'guests' in our own home.... it was great seeing how happy and comfortable they all were doing this.


Hubby put a lace curtain over the clothes line for me to give the yard a pretty party look...it was so pretty with the sun on it...

t was a 'Hot Dog and Hamburger' party .. here all the rolls and buns, with the sauces and salads are waiting for the  finishing touches... the meat patties and franks...

and here's the BBQ man doing his thing with the onions and meat patties..... smelt wonderful...

..on Getting Healthy.... ??



.... It has taken me 8 weeks to lose 4 kilos.....
..I have been walking in the pool at my local Aquatic centre 3 times a week.....
..Hubby has joined my daughter and me in these exercise sessions...... happy about this...
We get up at 5.30 am and start our session about 6am....
I have sore muscles ALL  OVER  my body......I feel I should be trim and healthy , but I'm not .... yet....






Took Mum to her last  Doctors check up after being in hospital in January... and all is fine.... Mum is on a low potassium diet and she has bounced back very well, mentally as well as physically...... I tell everyone that she is really Dr. Who and is regenerating.. slowly..

.





...Our dog, Kyton has gone to hospital today to get his teeth cleaned and have a full dental check.... he will be 11 on the 28th of this month and this is the first time he's had this done.......






I love the soft rustic look of the bench seat when the freckle plants come through the slats......

Hope all is well for everybody.......
See you soon....


Hugs and Blessings ...
