Its my birthday la la la la la la la.


In the house I grew up in in Melbourne, it was the rhododendrons that heralded my birthday each year, but here it seems to be the gorgeous waratahs.

We kicked off the festivities yesterday with a trip to Melbourne.

Where we hung out with my Mum, my sister Emily and her boyfriend Jono.

We drank some great coffee, ate sushi and explored.

This morning has been the usual chaos of getting the big girls to school on time with the added bonus of lots of singing, cards and prezzies. Yay!!




I plan to spend today screen printing and knitting and then preparing and eating the birthday dinner when the girls come home.

I hope you have a great day on my birthday.

My Dad has written some lovely things about me here. Its a bit embarrasing to be so self promoting but hey its my birthday la la la...

  13. Happy Birthday Kate!! It looks as though you received some lovely pressies, especially the handmade ones with little wings, how cute. I think the crochet book is just perfect for you too. It looks great. You come from a very talented family too Kate, having a mum who writes and a sister who sings, and you the farmer and crafter extrodinare, how fantastic and inspirational you all must be to each other. I loved reading your dad's post too, how wonderfully proud he is of you. I dont know how you accomplish so much either, you must never sleep for long. I hope you have a wonderful day!

    Your dad's post was amazing - so sweet.
    You got some lovely goodies - for me the felt and button toy (in your cute new shoes) and the toilet roll birds are winners, made with love.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
