The party season has started at ours...

It was my Mum's 70th birthday yesterday. My Mum is an incredible woman who has a lot on her plate...2 ageing parents herself to care for...full time carer for my Dad who has MS, not to mention all the community work she does, being there for all of us - her 3 children and 7 grand-children... You'd think life would be a bit gentler on you when you reach 70.

She really is amazing. And to top it all she doesn't look anywhere near 70 either. Just as long as I've inherited her genes there...

We had a big party for her yesterday and just so it doesn't pass in a breeze we are all heading out for brunch this morning...all 15 of us.

It really is setting the party season off on a high, but I'm not sure I'll be able to continue through it all at this pace!

Whatever you are doing these holidays and whoever you are spending it with, I hope it brings you joy, happiness and laughter.

Thank you so much for your support in 2010, it really does mean a lot to me that you are all out there sharing my musings, craftings and whatever else is happening to be going on in my life and I look forward to sharing more together in 2011, whatever that may bring...
