Today is the longest day of the year: the summer solstice here in Australia.
It is also my birthday and I have had a lovely day. Several emails and calls from friends and family were great and then this evening I saw my husband's Aunt and Uncle (in UK) on Skype which was good. As usual on Wednesdays I minded the little twins, Chelsea & Caitlin and my father in law is staying with us.
These days we don't buy presents for each other unless there is something we particularly want.
The pic on the right shows what I received from my dear husband.
This little raised garden is outside our bedroom window and has always been really messy. I have been wanting pebbles to finish it off and so this week I received 12 bags of pebbles. That is what I call a perfect gift.
Oh, by the way, the first pic is of a Santa I made last year. It is my own design and is called Swaggy Santa, reflecting the Australian bush.
