Well it's my 56th birthday today and I have had a sensational day.
Henry and I started with breakfast in Port Melbourne on Station Pier at Campari with Lucas my step son, Sunny his girlfriend, Bev, Don, Sunny's parents and Rod Sunny's brother. It was beautiful sitting on the decking overlooking the water, a mild morning.
Had dinner out last night also for my birthday with Shirley my sister-in-law, Wally brother-in-law, Elsa mother-in-law and of course Henry.
I have received some amazing presents, but the one I want to talk about is to do with my original inspiration to write this blog. At High Tea this afternoon with my Mum, sister Sue and best friend Ellen her husband Craig and Henry I received the cook books by Julia Child "Mastering the art of French Cooking" How amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will also revisit the movie for further inspiration.
I love cooking and I will now endevour to cook as much from these books as possible.
The movie and of course the cook books were my inspiration to get active and write this blog and to follow my dreams and make them a reality.
My Fudge adventures have been progressing rather slowly. I have been trying to source a kitchen to be able to set up for my fudge making adventure, but all toooo expensive. I may just have to do some cahnges here in our home.
I have been making so much fudge for christmas gifts, and it has been accepted with much pleasure from the recipients which spures me on even more to get into production.
I have also progressed a little with my 'Magpie' embroidery project, it is looking great.
I certainly feel very fortunate. Along with my gifts from here my o/s best friend Teresa sent me some beautiful earings...two pairs one for christmas another for my birthday plus other things for Christmas.... how fortunate am I to have such special friends in my life.
Enough for today I'd better sign off and go and talk to that wonderful husband of mine, who has made this day so special. xx love to all J-M
