Mum's 93rd Birthday Party.

My Mother celebrated her 93 rd Birthday at the Clubs of Marlborough last night along with almost all of her family and friends, about 20 of us. Here are some photos of the happy evening before I forgot to take any more, sorry other relatives and friends. Managed to photograph the entre of curried Prawns and Scallops which was really tasty and satisfying.

A raffle win from the Festival.

Here it is a whole month since I went along to the Maritime Festival in Picton, while there I took one lone raffle ticket as a donation towards next years festival and to keep the sellers happy.
I was rung up the other night to tell me that I had won a prize in the raffle, not a big prize but a prize never the less, of a Pamper Pack from a Chemist shop, it had rose soap, body lotion, Talc, scrub and a scrub brush plus a special pair of gloves impregnated with hand lotion to wear at night to soften my hands. I was rapt, it is not often I win anything, mind you I seldom take raffle tickets so maybe that is the reason, and how amazingly nice it feels to have a win, however small. I am very grateful, and I now smell like a Rose.
