Celebrating 70 years

This weekend was spent with my mum.
She turned 70 on Saturday.

The three of us...

My mum xx

My Dad has also been chosen as Citizen of the Year for 2009. He will receive this prestigious award on Australia Day. This is Dad's reward for all the hard work that he does for the community. Not bad for an old bloke...(
He says he ain't done nothin')

We are so proud
Mum and Dad

Family and friends visited during the day and the phone didn't stop ringing. We went out for tea (dinner) at the local hotel, that was after we watched the local Christmas Pageant of course.

I have three days left to get my Christmas decorations and tree up and do some last minute shopping for the big day.

I have been kept busy cleaning houses. I had one to clean everyday last week and today I worked for 10 hours, so I am pooped and ready for bed. Why does everyone want their houses cleaned right before Christmas? I will know better next year and be more organised. Famous last words....

I want to wish all my blogging friends a very Merry CHRISTmas and Happy 2010.

Take care everyone,
