Oh what a week!!  And so lovely to be joining in with Bron for Maxabella Loves and our list of gratefuls.

I have but one grateful today!

And that is....


My dearest Dad celebrated his 70th Birthday mid-week.  I acted aloof and unperturbed by his resolve not to have any fuss made his way.  We all agreed that we would oblige, however could not help ourselves when it was discovered that co-incidently my parents would be dining out with a group of their friends on that particular evening for their Food and Wine night.

Hubby and I packed up the kids for the 500km round trip to surprise him at this dinner!!  My brother also made the trip up, so he was surprised - twice.  I had only spoken with him a few hours before the dinner and apologised that his birthday hug and kiss would be perhaps two weeks late.....little did he know!!  I love surprises, he was chuffed to have his family appear before his very eyes - and I'm sure I caught a tear in his eye!! 

Happy Birthday Dad!!
