Happy Birthday Darl......

Today is my Darlings Birthday
he is 51 today......
Probably not the best photo, but I couldn't find the one I wanted.....
Being a birthday
we were up early
as hubby leaves at 6am for work.
Tonight he gets to pick whatever he wants for tea.
He has chosen Garlic Prawns.
So I'll be of to town latter to get some fresh prawns.

I had a wonderful day at my parents place yesterday.
The weather was awful for driving though. It was thick fog from home to Cabarlah and then again from Hampton to Crows Nest...........YUK.......
My parents live in a small town called Cooyar.
They bought an old hall and have converted that into there home.
The photos above and below are of Mums kitchen.Dad made every thing himself.
All the kitchen cabinets and even the lead light in the windows which you can't see any way.

The photo below is taken from the kitchen. As you can see they haven't put any walls up except on the stage where there bedroom is, behind the curtain.
We got 58mls of rain yesterday and last night. Every thing is looking so good, the ground is even squelching under your feet with the wet in the ground.

Well I'm off to catch up on a few blogs then of to town to get those prawns.
I hope to get out and get some weeding done this afternoon.
