Tonight Lillian hugged me and patted me on the head and said “Happy Birthday Mummy”, it was very nice and cute, however it is not my birthday. It will be in another 2 weeks or so. It is close, but not today.
My wonderful little girl then said, “Let’s go to Canada for your birthday Mummy!”, I told her that this would be a wonderful idea. The only issue with this is money. I did explain this and told her that maybe we can do it when we have more. She accepted this but still thinks it might be tomorrow or next week that this will happen.
What a lovely thought for the evening, off to Canada or somewhere as nice. Where do you want to holiday? What country are you desperate to explore and see more of. I would love to see more of Spain, Italy and Europe. I have always wanted to travel to Greece and see the ruins and be where the stories were created in Ancient Times. I loved Ancient History as a student and feel it would be magical to see in in the flesh.
And now more secret surprises: Both girls upon collecting them from pre-school have given me invites to school for Mother’s Day celebrations, they are excited and cannot wait to show me the secret surprises they are working on. I must say as today was the first day back to school for term 2 they got up early. They must have been keen to see their friends, both kids have been inviting everyone around to our house to show off their new sand pit. It is just like the kids when I was little having a swimming pool. This should be interesting.
I’m off to bed to get some rest so that I might tidy the house to allow for guests tomorrow, not sure if people are free but may as well be prepared.
Why not continue the discussion on our Twitter or Facebook pages.

I have never felt like I wanted to travel outside of the U.S. until recently. The more blogging friends I get from Australia the more I think that I would enjoy visiting there.

Hi Mama Carmody, I am sure you would love Australia. I have always wanted to travel, far off places and explore everything. USA, Europe, Asia and more of Australia as well. Problem is money, but we are working on that and crossing fingers and toes we might go overseas in the years to come. 🙂

A+ for preparedness, Momma! And I hope you have fun if guests did show up–the sand pit sounds wonderful!

Thanks after all the hard work no one turned up, Julia was so upset but forgot soon after we arrived at the park. Maybe next week. The girls just love their new sand pit. 🙂
