I started out writing about how it’s my birthday on Saturday, and how it makes me feel a bit sad and how dumb my siblings are and how much I miss my parents. Blah blah blah...
But you know what?
I’m over it!
Over having them make me feel like crap.
Over being depressed about getting older.
Yeah I still miss my folks but it’s not a big thing.
So you won’t be reading any sookie la la posts from me!
Hubby and son are off to Karate tonight where they will be taught buy a special visitor from Japan. A sensei who is an eighth Dan black belt. It’s super cool. They have a session with him tonight, tomorrow night and Saturday morning. (Yes the morning of my birthday but it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity). Our son is a little nervous. Apparently this old dude speaks very little English and you aren’t allowed to speak to him anyway. Unless spoken to. I know, that because it is such a big deal, my son will take note of everything this guy says and teaches.
I’ve been working on a picture for the tags I’m going to put on my things we sell at the markets. It’s a cat that I made to look like Moby. It’s taken me quite a while to get it to this point and I still don’t know if I am happy with it. It will only be small so whatever I do on it, it needs to be clear. This is it so far. What do you think?
|It will be much smaller than this, but you have to work big for it to look good small scale.|
It’s time to harvest some of our pumpkins and so far the ones we have got have been huge. We have two and gave another one to the neighbours for looking after Moby while we were on holidays.
Apparently Moby is quite loved by the neighbours. On both sides of our house. When we leave on our trip around Australia we are going to have to give Moby away. I am sure the neighbours will take him. I’m not going to give my furbaby to just anyone. We may just give him to them to look after until we return, I’m not sure yet.
So just now I received in the mail a birthday present from my parents and also one from a lady who we used to live next to who I love like a grandmother. She sent me this beautiful book mark that just made me cry.
|Isn't it beautiful? *sniff!*|
My parents rang me to tell me that they will be HERE TOMORROW! WOO! So HERE for my BIRTHDAY!! I’m SO HAPPY!
(*does happy dance*)
