Birthday Night

I was so wrong about people at work not knowing it was my Birthday, My boss had balloons and streamers all over my desk at work and they bought me a massive birthday cake as well. I was very touched.

When I got home I had a even bigger surprise Hubby had set the tent up in the lounge room and got the fire going. So we camped in the lounge room for the night and had dinner in the tent and melted marsh mellows in the fire. It was so sweet and it was awesome as the cat go to go camping with us as well. One of the photos is me on my new Net book which Jez got me, he was so proud of himself cause now I can blog where ever I am. So I really have no excuses if I am a slack ass.

I will draw my July Giveaway tommorow so you have one more night to enter if you are keen.

This weekend we went to the Casino to see the show Stomp. It was really good, well what I could see of it. Me being the IDIOT I can be after a few wines and the social excitement of catching up with old friends, left my glasses back at our unit. So I squinted my way through what everyone told me was a amazing show.

Don't you love taking shots with a timer, they just never seem to work for us.

This was the view from our balcony gorgeous mountain views to one side and the casino to the other side. Hope you all had a gorgeous weekend, mine would have been a lot better if I hadn't drunk so much as I had a whopper of a hangover today.

2 More sleeps To go!!!!!!!!!

2 more sleeps until Harry Potter Mania I am so excited to see the final movie but in the same breath kind of sad because it's all over. I'm going to do a recap the next couple of nights to get myself all ready for the big final. I must say how beautiful does Emma look? She is such a stunner.

With music guests and phone in segments with vintage radio jingles. It also has the guys from Rock Wiz in it and how I love Julia Zemiro she has the most gorgeous style and is so funny.

Lost In Austen, I loved it. It's about a devoted Jane Austin fan who through her bathroom finds her self in Austen's Pride and Prejudice.

I went to the The Village Markets, they are amazing full of vintage goodies and lots of other wonderful things. My favourite stall was the Owls from Sisterhood Sewing.

Purchased Sia's Cd, We Are Born and Operator Please's Cd, Gloves. Needles to say I'm clapping my hands and having a good old time.

Tuesday July 5Th (New Attitude)
Thinking more positive. What you feel is what you attract.

Wednesday July 6Th (New Tea)
I was in a Tea Swap recently and I received Lipton's Vanilla and Caramel Truffle Tea.
