A Busy Week

I have been working all week, no not milking cows . . . . at Babes work. I go down there when their stock shipments come in and help unpack and put away the new stock. Very physical work, I enjoy it because I don't have to do it day in and day out!

Babes grandparents 60th Wedding Anniversary party plans are coming together. We are doing a lovely luncheon for them this Sunday. Imagine being married for 60 years !!!!

My stepfather is very, very ill and is in hospital. If you could say a little prayer for his well being and comfort it would be very much appreciated.

I am off to pick my Princess up from school. Two weeks school holiday starts on Monday yahee!

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Bye . . .


p.s. spring weather, sunny!!!!

60 years!! Hubby and I are together for 30 years in 2009. There was a time that I thought 30 was old, kind of dynosaurs were 30. Actually 30 years is a wink of the eye and I'm affraid that 60 years are 2 winks of the eye. Can you ask the grandparents if I'm right? Enjoy the weather, we are having sunny autumn weather over here! I'm sending positive vibes to your stepfather. Have a great weekend!

Hi, this is my first time on your blog and I am sorry about hearing about bloggin nasties. I haven't experienced it myself (yet) but I agree with you. This is a nice and friendly, happy outlet for us. It is hard to understand why they would visit someone's blog and be mean...

Kindredly, Lynne Laura
