What a wonderful few days I have had. Â My birthday was on Saturday, but we started celebrating the night before with Greg and I going out to dinner to a favourite restaurant. Â It was such a treat to go out, just the two of us, to sit and chat and enjoy food I didn’t have to prepare. Â Now it wasn’t just any meal either, Â I’m talking, eyes-rolling-into-back-of-your-head kind. Â Now my mouth is watering, just thinking about it. Â If you are ever in the Dandenong Ranges, I can highly recommend Coonara Springs Restaurant.
Saturday lunch was spent with some of my gorgeous friends at a local cafe. Â We throughly enjoyed our time with much talk and a lot of laughter. Â I think we need to get together more often. Â After lunch we wondered to a near by yarn shop (what a coincidence) and I found the perfect button for my newly finished cowl (pics to come). Â None of us were in a hurry to return to reality, so we all went back to my place for another cuppa and more talk (about knitting of course). Â Many thanks to Greg, who had 5 kids in his care for the duration of our extended lunch.
Scarlett and Tenneille spent a good portion of Saturday afternoon decorating the birthday cake. Â They were even fighting over the privilege at one stage, and then, of course, there were tears, ho hum. Â I’m sure we could be part of a reality tv program at times! Â But after all that, Scarlett has declared she wants the same cake for her birthday next year. Â So it couldn’t be all bad.
Sunday was Mother’s Day, so my family got to spread the love a little longer. Â I enjoyed breakfast in bed and the girls made me special cards. Â My day was mostly spent knitting, so what more could I have asked for. Â Well ok, I’m thinking of getting Knit Pick interchangeable needles and some yarn to make Tea Leaves cardigan. Â I bought the pattern for Tea Leaves 3 years ago, so I think it’s time I actually cast it on! Â I’m thinking I might knit it in charcoal or maybe red. Â Decisions, decisions.
Today I am feeling very blessed to have such wonderful friends and my sweet little family to make celebrating another year so very special. Â If you were celebrating Mother’s Day this past weekend, I hope you felt the love and honour, because you are so worth it you gorgeous women. Â Jacinta xx
