I must confess … there is so much happening in my world at the moment. Some I can share and some I cannot. This is why it has been a bit quiet on this here blog of mine! Hoping to return to more regular posts very soon.
So you’re wondering what Angelina, Dad, 21 and Turf have to do with each other? Nothing … absolutely nothing … but they are some of the things happening in my world right now. Let me explain!
My daughter’s boyfriend has been cast as an extra in Angelina Jolie’s movie ‘Unbroken’. He plays an Australian soldier in a Japanese prisoner of war camp. It is all very exciting! Filming started today. He sat at the same table as Angelina for lunch today and had a five-minute conversation with her. My daughter is on the phone to him now to get the lowdown on what their conversation was all about. How amazing would that be and what an amazing experience for him to be in this film!
My gorgeous Dad turned 83 on 1 November. How can he be this age already? I’m so happy that he is reasonably fit and healthy and pray that he continues to be for a long, long time. Myself, Dad, Mum, my brother and my three sisters all went out to dinner to celebrate. Dad was thrilled to have all five of his kids there to celebrate with him. We all stayed the night at Mum and Dad’s. That would have to be a first for a long, long time! We jokingly told them that we all moving back home .. haha!!
My twin boys are turning 21 on 19 November. I have been madly organising the celebration for their 21st and have still to get their 21st presents. I cannot believe that they will soon be 21. It only seems like yesterday they were babies keeping me up all night!
We have beautiful green grass in our new front yard! This weekend was spent laying it. Why oh why did we have such curvy garden edges. So much cutting of turf and fitting it to awkward spaces! It’s all worth it though – it’s beautiful! We decided to use ‘Sir Walter’ turf because we wanted something hardy and green. We didn’t want a high maintenance couch that needed fussing over. We wanted something that could withstand droughts, water restrictions, sun, shade, the lot! Have a look at these ‘before’ and ‘after’ phone snaps …
(after removing the horrible weed ridden crappy grass that was originally there)
Have a great week everyone!
