may 30 my personality

I'm a pretty happy go lucky person...
believe in treating people as I like to be treated, 
don't suffer fools very well, 
speak my mind (and get in trouble for it occassionally!)
love to have a laugh...just ask my work mates!
that's pretty much ME!

may 25 unusual

I think this is very unusual...
it belonged to my Mum...
it was given to her by her Mum and Dad for her 18th or 21st...
I've only even seen one other like it....
my friend Jac was given one by her Mum that she found in a second hand shop (I think), same design only Jacs has pearls and no green stones (I thought these were emeralds until I had it valued several years ago, they are actually Garnets that have been cut in a special way so they show as green and not deep red...
As you can see, I don't wear this piece, it is on display in a frame in my loungeroom, so I can see it every day and remember my Mum!

PS if you ever seen one like this, please let me know as I would love to have a few more of these stunning pieces.

may 24 something new

this is a BOM I've joined...
very excited...
now just need time to sit and do!

(sorry didn't get time to post yesterday, so you'll get 2 today...the other when I get back)

this bit of technology is a huge part of my life...
without it,
I wouldn't be able to show you this post, or upload my photos to share,
or visit blogs...
enjoy your day...with whatever technology you need to make it happen!

may 14 grass

grass 1= lawn needs to be mowed...too wet at the mo!
grass 2= long bush type, down the back...not mowed very often!

couldn't decide which to show you...the nice lawn grass that surrounds the house...
the long yicky bush grass that grows down the back and along the side fence between us and neighbours...
you got both!

may 13 MUM

these always remind me of my Grandmother (Mum's Mum)the only grandparent I knew and these are from her garden...I took them from Mum's garden many years ago, and they travel to all the houses I have lived in...
Camillas remind me of my Mum...she loved this deep red colour...and it's one of my favourites too!

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums out there...hope you are celebrating with loved ones, or manage to talk on the phone, pop in and say Hi....remember your Mum, she is the only one you've got!
