Birthday Boy!

It's my big boy's 16th birthday today.   Sixteen years have just flown by!  Well today we are off to Queensland Transport, Alexander is going to sit his test for his "Learners Permit", he is nervous but is eager to learn to drive (a little scary).  After the test he would like to go to the movies to see :"The Other Guy"!   We are going to dinner tomorrow night as my poor husband is in Sydney all day, first time he has not seen his son on his Birthday.    Happy Birthday my darling Alexander!

Beautiful Memories....

This picture was taken a few years ago on Mother's Day, it is one of my favourite photo's of my beautiful Mum, Sister and our children.
I have posted this in memory of my Mum who passed away a year ago.  Oh we miss you so so much Mum (Mama)!

Sorry to all of you out there who read my blog, I have been out of action for a few days as I have had a major reaction to Aspirin, which caused me to have severe stomach cramps. I am feeling a bit better today, hopefully this is the end of it. I posted this picture because I just can't wait to eat some yoghurt and berries (not a good thing to eat as one knows when there stomach is YUK)!

Timeless Elegance

Photos courtesy of Clove Hall, Penang

I came across this gorgeous Hotel in the Financial Reviews "Life and Leisure"  magazine.  Clove Hall Boutique Hotel in Georgetown Penang.  Hotelier Christopher Ong sources old furniture from Malaysia and has them gently restored to their former glory.  He wanted the rooms to be comfortable and stylish.

I just love the dark woods set against the white walls and the beautiful beams!  I think I might be planning a family holiday to Penang!

Enjoy your Monday, Mimi x

When birds do sing, hey ding a ding;
Sweet lovers love the spring." William Shakespeare


Enjoy your weekend.  Mimi
