Mum's 80th Birthday
On Saturday 24 members of our family celebrated Mum's 80th birthday. They were all her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and their partners. Sadly 2 of her grandchildren were unable to make it.We went to the Windjammers Restaurant in the Novotel at North Wollongong.

Set up for the party
We had a great family get together, with some family members coming from Canberra and Melbourne.

Yummy birthday cake
My mother is very fit and able for an eighty year old. It is really hard to think of her as that age. She still drives and keeps herself very busy with church related activities.

Views from my bedroom
P:-) was doing some work on my roof this afternoon. This required him to climb out my bedroom window.

Once the window is open I can't help but admire the view.

 I was a bit worried about the plants growing in the guttering.

 P:-) pulled the plants out.

I love my house and surrounds. I love coming home to it. It needs a lot doing to it and a lot of the garden fixed up, but the more I live here, the more I love it. I am very lucky to live somewhere so beautiful.
