Happy Birthday Queen

Doesn't it seem bizarre that we mark the Queen's birthday in Australia in June, when it is actually her birthday in April? It seems a bit bizarre that we get a public holiday for her birthday at all, but I've had a lovely day off work, so happy b/day!

It's been a full and fun weekend. Mum and Lloyd came for a visit which was great and we pottered around together on Saturday - going to ballet, going to the shops, having cups of tea.....
On Sunday, I'd arranged to go to one of Rett's classes, with my dear friend Jan, at the Brisbane Scrapbook Convention. I'm glad I did, it was fantastic. Rett is a calm and fabulous woman and I loved her class. Wish I'd had more time to do more classes. *sigh* Anyhoo, this is the little book I made....documenting some of my fave things around the house.

Inside, I've included pics and details about - our house :), the front verandah, my Willowtree figurine collection, my first piece of original art (a glorious pastel), books and tea. Things that make me happy.
Ruby and Max were a bit sad that nanny and poppy had to go home.

But they've bounced back from their glum moods to spend the afternoon colouring in and trashing the house.

Off to Canberra for a few days this week. Not excited at all about the cold weather in Canberra but I'm very excited about seeing my dear friend Cindy's new baby, Paige.
peace and love
