B****y Birthday,s 4 all in the same fortnight
Feeling a bit down today and it,s because I am going to miss my BFF,s 60th Birthday which is on Monday. This gal pal and I have known each other since we arrived in Australia she is English, and had emigrated about 6 months before we did and our Husbands worked together so as soon as we met it was friendship at first sight. And so together we have celebrated our kids going to school our 40ths our 50ths and know I am going to miss her 60th because we now live in different parts of this vast land. It,s not because of my new budget for this coming year, as I have left leeway for just such occasions it,s mainly because of my Daughter,s wedding which is taking up all my available time at the moment. She is coming for the Wedding and so I will see her soon, but somehow it,s just not the same.
4 Birthdays in the next few days means that I have to be organised as I intend to get the most bang for my buck, and so I have handmade the cards, so all I have to do is buy the stamps for that. My Daughter-in-Laws is first and I bought her a gorgeous dress at the end of last Summer in a sale she is a size 8 Australian (2 American ) and I got this little dress for only $10. My Girlfriend is next and I am going to send her flowers, as I really can,t think of anything she would like more. My Sister follows and she is just getting a card, as she has well warned me not to buy her anything. And finally my Mother-in-Law is on the 16th, she is the trickiest as she needs nothing, but would be really put out if a lot of time and money was not spent on her, even with a Wedding close by. Thankfully Hubby will be coming to the party on this one.
No money spent today, but my eating was,nt real good, I think I was having chocolate withdrawal symptoms.
