Etched In My Memory....

I love a good clearing sale and have been going to them for as long as I can remember... Our calendar usually has one marked on it for every month of the year... We always go as a family, DH, the girls and I, and have a great day catching up with the neighbours as well as others we don't see to often.... We went to a sale on the weekend and as usual I got heaps of goodies for my garden and a few for my house as well... DH always does a great job sharing the load with the kids with Little Millie falling asleep in this prime position several times during the day....
It was my 28th b'day last week. I was lucky enough to have a visit from 2 of my sisters and my Mum for the day... My oldest sister, Abby, bought out an amazing homemade pistachio and honey cheese cake to celebrate the occasion and we ate it while sipping chai tea, my FAVOURITE!!!! All of the kiddies sang a lovely tune of happy birthday to me, very sweet!!!! A birthday etched in my memory to treasure forever... *^_^*.......
Take Care.......

  5. Happy birthday! It sounds like you had a great day. We too,love clearing sales but don't get to many now as we DON'T NEED any more treasures! Mind you, having said that, there is a great sounding one at Lake Cargelligo today that we would have loved to have gone to (and visited my aunt at the same time)- but we have house guests for the big car race. Doh!

  10. Is that kind of sale comparable to a garage or yard sale in the US? I'm curious. HAPPY BIRTHDAY and I love your blog.
