JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

A Fancy 60th

We were invited to our friends 60th birthday on the weekend but we had to come in fancy dress!  Now this would normally send me into a dither but as luck would have it Halloween was also on Saturday night so the shops were filled with Halloween outfits.  We visited the Reject Shop (gotta love the cheap shops) and picked up two outfits for less that $60.  Philip went as a Ghoul and I went as Morticia from the Addams Family.  We all arrived at 5.00pm in normal clothes and at around about 6.00pm our guest of honour was blind-folded and dressed in his outfit - Barney Rubble, and the rest of us quickly changed into our fancy dress.  His blind-fold was then removed and he was very much surprised, not only by his outfit but everyone else's efforts.
We had a beautiful meal...thanks Kate....and a lovely night chatting to our friends, some of whom we hadn't seen for quite awhile.  The men stayed up to watch New Zealand beat Australia in the Rugby World Cup while the rest of us where tucked up in bed by 1.00 pm.  I think Philip stumbled into the camper at about 3.30 pm!
