It’s my daughters 13th birthday today. She tells me all weekend “mum it’s my birthday Monday, can’t I stay home?”
Ummm … No

After two weeks off .. Don’t think so.

How time flies. I can still remember holding her in my arms and taking her home. 13 years … God I’m getting old lol

Anyway … Just wanted to share



Ghost Tour


Well, we did another Ghost Tour last night. It was for my daughters birthday. It was cold. It rained. The umbrellas came out.

It was fun. The tour guide told my daughter and her two friends to knock on the morgue door and put their heads against the door to see if they can hear anything. Well they did and what happened?

All three of them ran so fast and my poor daughter fell in shock. As they knocked on the door, someone knocked back twice.

The tour guide had these metal rods and in another spot spoke to the spirits to let us know they with us. One lady held it and it moved and showed where they are standing. Suddenly my girlfriend grabs my arm.

So it was a good and fun night.

What did you do on your Saturday night?







Birthday Surprise

Birthday Surprise

Well I turned 46 last week. I felt a little sad because my sister is in America and I only had my daughter here. I wanted to have my family and friends around.

So last week my neighbour comes over telling me to pick her up from work on the Saturday (22/3/14) and tells me my daughter has a surprise for me.

I picked my neighbour up from work and spent 3 hrs with her. Drinking coffee and having lunch. We talked and had more coffee. We talked and ate. In the meantime my close friend calls telling me she’s coming over to take me out for drinks. Mmmmm, but I’m supposed to be home around 5pm. How’s that going to work?

It got to about 4:30pm when my neighbour finally told me we can go home. Boy was I happy to get home to be told to wait. I got to my front door was told to close my eyes. The smell of good filled my nose … It was quiet though. I was then led out the back and heard “surprise” … I opened my eyes and saw my friends.

My 12 year old daughter arranged my birthday surprise. I was so happy and was smiling, eating and drinking all night.

Have you had someone organise a surprise for you?

Waiheke Island – New Zealand


Well as I told you before I’m was off to New Zealand. I’ve never been there, but boy it was gorgeous.

The Island we found had about 8,265 population … 2,000 are kids. The funny thing is we didn’t see the kids for 3 days. Then on the Monday morning I go to my sis, “oh kids!” We all laughed.

The thing about the 5 days was my sisters 50th birthday party when her husband and daughter surprised her. It was like “OMG!” I thought it was so sweet. They came for the one night only all the way from Sydney. We had a 1920’s theme and had a great night.

Now you tell me … What husband would do that? Well … He did 🙂

Tell me what your husband/partner/boyfriend did to surprise you?
