It's Birthday Eve!!!

To be serious for a moment here...here is the little kit I purchased at the markets on Saturday...

Started Sunday afternoon...and finished in record time for me...



Opened up...and all set to go!!!



Now, on Tuesday afternoon I hear a knock on the door and this parcel arrives from Andrea
Being an Aries...I want to open it now...
But no, put it aside and WAIT until Friday...
It feels nice and soft!!!
Have been in touch with Andrea who gave me some clues
It might be burgundy...perfect, we have a bit of burgundy through the house
Or it might be pink and green...perfect for the sewing room
Whatever it is I'm sure it will be just right...
Now I'm really busting to open it Andrea
But I will wait...sigh!!!


Have been busy making myself a gluten free buttercake for my birthday
I love Harry Potter...last year my Hubby bought for me the set of books
I even bought the pencils...rubbers...pens...folders
And I love colouring books...and yep...I bought one of those too...
I think one day I will take pics of Harry Potter stuff and post it up...
And yep...I'm a big kid at heart!!!
This edible image is for my cake...
Today I have respite care for our Daughter JoJo...I have adult hours till 6pm!!! Normally I have to be home at 3.30 pm 4 days a week as that is when she is home from her programmes...
And now I'm off to meet my Friend Fiona for lunch at the newest restaurant in town...gaze at the lovely view...smell that salty blue air...and in the back of my head...try and guess what's in that parcel!!!
Cheers to you All...Dzintra♥

I'm sending you lots and lots of happy birthday wishes Dzintra! I'm very curious about what's in that package too... will you show us? (: Its good to be a big kid! (I love Harry Potter too) And I agree with Cathrine... if I were not way over here, I'd make you something yummy and gluten free.

Welcome To My World

Hello, my name is Dzintra Ingrid ... have been known as Ingrid and since our Sea Change I have started to use Dzintra ... pronounced without the D ... (but still known as Ingrid, I know, it's confusing ...)

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
