Birthday Month Day 9

A magical flute is my treat today. Number 19 on the list. If you want a magical flute like mine you can buy them from the Trade Aid shop. A great stocking filler for the kids. Sounds pretty too.

Love this, so funky, drum and bass influences apparently. Don't know when I first heard it, maybe 10 years ago.

Birthday Month Day 7

The wind has stopped thank goodness. So excited our peach tree has heaps of peachy goodness on it this year. It's taken a few years but finally I think we will get a good harvest this year. Last year we had 4 giant delicious golden queen peaches. Previously they would get to the size of a marble and fall or be blown off. This year none have fallen off, yay!! Just need to figure out how to keep the birds away.

Number 17 today. A super cute dress from Max. And it was on sale. $41 from $140. YES!! Love it when that happens.

Birthday Month Day 6

Number 25, a long black skirt from Supre. Just a cheap simple one to layer over. Quite cute really. And comfortable.

It's so windy today, makes you grumpy.
I definitely need one of these. Cool idea!

Birthday Month Day 5 Round 2

Well that didn't happen. Rob was too busy, lol. I threw number 30 back in and drew number 20. 2 new bathing suits, hehe, about time, I've had the last ones for about 5 years. And you know how hard it is buying a new bathing suit when you are white and a little podgy around the middle. But I did find something I did quite like from Postie Plus in the end. A bikini to sunbathe in, (not so bad when you are lying flat) and a cami top thing and bikini pants to swim in. I know I have sarongs somewhere.

Birthday Month Day 5

Todays treat is number 30 - Rob cooks dinner. Haha, awesome. Means I don't have to think about it today. Will show a pic later of what he cooks.

Meanwhile, heres something to think about. I really love this.

Birthday month Day 4

Todays treat is number 1 which is a Bottle of Lindhauer. Sweet!! Will share that tonight with someone.

I made this for dinner last night. Very simple and very nice. Will definitely make again. It didn't quite look as beautiful as in this picture but it was a real hit. Just had it with rice. Yum.

Birthday Month Day 3

My treat for today is number 16 which is a Pandora bead. Yay, so cute. This is one of the new beads. Good price too. Love the filigree pattern, gorgeous.

I'd love this cake for my birthday. Isn't it beautiful. I don't think I could cut it though. And the stand underneath is gorgeous too.

Trying is exhausting. Doing is empowering. 
from The Daily Gift.

Today my treat is number 9 which is, a cupcake holder. How cool is that going to look loaded up with cute cupcakes. Now I need an icing set, hmmm, I wonder if that is in my treat stash :).

A month today I'll be 50

Really!! Where did that time go? 50 years. What have I achieved. I have 2 amazing kids, I know that for sure. And for the first time in a long time I'm pretty happy with my life. So I guess thats a great achievement.
Anyway, since it's such a big birthday and I'm not having a party, I'm going to give myself a month of treats. Some just small and some bigger. Nothing too extravagant. Why the heck not. You're only 50 once. Half a century, oohhh that hurts, haha. Nah, I've never worried about my age. You're as old as you feel, I say.
I've made a list of my treats and numbered them and each day I draw a number to see which treat I get. Today's number is 6 and that is a bar of chocolate on my list lol.

And you have to go here and do this. So much fun. Let me know if you do it. I'd love to see them. Got it from Ngaire's blog.

Will make these for Xmas day too.

Hunter Gatherer stuff

Rob got his first ever wild pig last Sunday. Look how pleased he is. I of course was not pleased they had to kill the poor pig. I hate that sort of thing, but what is it about some guys that feel the need to do it. I don't really understand. I hate killing anything.

Then on Tuesday we all went for a nice fishing trip with Colin. Not that nice, the weather was horrible, but we were most successful. James caught the biggest 5.3kg snapper, and Rob caught these 2 big 4 kg ones. Lots of other fish were caught also, enough to feed us for awhile, yum, fresh snapper, who could ask for more. I however was not as successful, but did catch 3 various fish, lol. And yes I hate killing fish too, but there are so many of them, it doesn't seem so bad. And fish is very good for you. The thought does play on my mind though, killing them that is. Not totally happy with that.

But I was extremely happy to gather this lovely bunch of flowers from my garden. So I was most content with that.
