Birthday Weekend

Well it was my birthday on Friday and I was a bit sad. As I walked upstairs to make the kiddies their lunch expecting to hear "Happy Birthday" instead they had both forgot. I guess my over emotional pregnant body got to me and it had me in tears - Mum came out and said "Happy Birthday" which stimulated the kiddies memory and I got big hugs and kisses.

Mum gave me some money and also a fantastic red sqaure plate and candles that will look stunning on our new dining table. When John came home he got the kids to give me an anklet that I had picked out. Also he had delivered 12 long stem roses (6 white and 6 red) as he got the earful for not reminding the the biggest suprise, he handed me a ring box and he had sneakily got my engagement ring it was to thin and low against my wedding band and was bending...again I was in

Then we went out to see the block as John hadn't seen it as he was away all week and had some KFC for dinner and cake with Mum and Dad.

It is so nice to finally have things happening on the land and by Wednesday we will have the slab and then the following Monday they are putting up the frame and if all goes to plan the house should be bricked up before they go on their Chrsitmas break. So if all this happens we should be in the house early March, giving me enough time to get settled before bub arrives.

Last night we had a kiddie free night and went and stayed at the Crowne Plaza. Walked around the city and popped into the Mind Body and Spirit Festival. Later we had a lovely dinner at the Casino and then an Ice Cream for dessert and looked around at the shops and the Christmas decorations in the Casino before heading back to the room.

Then this morning on the way home we stopped off at Ikea for me to drool over all the furniture I want for my scrapping room and the rest off the house before coming home to an empty house.

So although my birthday started off a little sad it ended great. :)
