As I brush away the cobwebs with the back of my hand & blow away the dust from my long forgotten blog, I think of how I can bring it back to life….
How do I begin to make up for all the time & precious moments that haven’t been spoken about, moments when I am so proud to be a mother. memories of new arrivals & achievements in life, long country drives, family get togethers….
So where do I begin…………………
Perhaps today is as good a place to start as any……
My Dad’s Birthday.
I was up extra early, making a desert for his birthday lunch, my favourite, Lemon meringue pie with a few blackberries thrown in for good measure.
It was so delish that I had to go for a second helping!
(Guess what I’ll be making next time craft is at my place).
I’m pretty sure Dad enjoyed the benefits of having a birthday, between my efforts & Moms Chocolate “to beat all chocolate” cake!
Oh & then we had Aunty Thelma’s very special Orange “Balmain tigers” cake.
Too many choices for just 1 person so lucky for him he did have a few helpers.
( I think we even got to bring some left over’s home)
It was a lovely afternoon, filled with family & CRICKET!!!!
Happy Birthday Dad, love your “favourite” daughter.
Lucky for me I am also his only daughter!
Of course it wasn’t all cake & candy, I managed to capture something very special in Moms Secret Garden….
A Dragonfly “squeal”
I’m sure he was playing with me, every time I got close he would take off, then stop & wait for me to get close before taking off again,
so I was pretty lucky to capture him at all….
He is a little bit hard to see cheeky bugger!
There we have it, My blog has been given a burst of life, up to me now to keep it alive & thriving if for no one but myself…..
See you soon x
