Happy birthday Tim



First of all today is my Tim's birthday so I wish him good things and health and happiness. He is on his way home from a hot day at work to his choice of birthday meal, bobotie (I think he has had that at least a couple of years in a row) and raspberry and rosewater meringue tart for his 'birthday cake'. 
 
I've been busy this week. Sorting out a few boring bits and pieces  hence no blogging but I have been busy doing blogging type things. That is getting my swap parcel ready for my partner in Jewell's Australia Day swap. 9 little parcels  containing items starting with AUSTRALIA. Doesn't sound too difficult but I had a bit of trouble with the letter U.
 
 
 
 
My parcel is working its way to my partner and I do hope they like what I chose. I had fun making and even shopping (which I am not a real fan of).
 
Hopefully tomorrow I will have a picture of my new chicks to show. Mother hen Marie is doing a great job sitting on her nest in the dreadful heat. I think she even had to leave the nest a few times to let the eggs cool down a bit. It has just been too hot.

I hope he enjoys his special meal. I have three sons. When they were small they could choose the birthday meal and also choose one special guest on the day. Middle son once chose his second cousin, an adult. She was very surprised at his choice of meal. Savoury mince and NO peas.

The "Australia"-spelled-out gifts are such a clever idea. I like that.

Yes, the letter "U" was hard, but I then googled "present starting with the letter U" and up came some ideas. I also had to look up "I" and the number one item for that letter was "I-Pod"... a tad expensive for this swap! Thanks for joining in the fun.
