I Should be in bed...!

Well, (my fave word) it is after 1 am Thursday26th October and I should be well and truly in bed. But hey..who cares.
Stephs birthday went off well, although we were unable to have it on the deck overlooking the water because it was EXTREMELY windy. I had a hard time trying to keep the balloon arrangements for the table in one piece.
About 17 sat down to and 'all you can eat' buffet.
steph enjoyed her time with her friends and got some nice presents.

Afterwards she and Jason went to his house and watched movies with friends.
Ross and I spent the afternoon lazing around...was quite nice.

Tuesday night Sita and Tineke came over for a roast lamb meal. Unfortunately the roast to nearly 3 hours to cook, so dinner was rather late. Once cooked though it was delicious. Broke my diet over it though...time to get back on track TOMORROW. Manyana...never comes. Don't want to gain back the 4 kgs I dropped already.
Must to bed...

Steph's Birthday.

Not much to report - except that Steph's 18th Birthday is coming up very fast! On Sunday 22nd October, in fact.
Wow! seems like yesterday when she arrived into this world. Now she is working full time at Gaden's Lawyers in Brisbane City, has a steady boyfriend, Jason, for over a year, and all in all is a pretty independent miss. So we are going out to Belvedere Hotel at Redcliffe for lunch on Sunday...we have invited a few of her friends to join us. Nothing big...but it will be nice...mellowing out near the water. Ofcourse her sisters and brother in law will be there and her little nephew Jesse and niece Shontelle Price. They are sooooooooo cute.

Have to get some decorations, order a cake and buy her a present today.
So I had better get away from this laptop (such a trap!!! but such fun!!) and get myself on my way!

Tonia has a new posting for next year at North Lakes State College, which is only a few K's from she may stay with us for the initial time, and then will see where she lives from there.

Steph is keen to move out of home and share with her, which will make an interesting time for Ross and myself...mmmmmmmm. The next stage...the empty nest?????????

Look out for the next EXCITING installment!
