Travel Loving Parents

Originally posted on thewanderingdarlings:
My parents have recently retired which, when they are still in their very early 60s/late 50s is really bloody early. I had like 5 mins worrying about what they would do with this new found freedom of the daily grind then I realised they are going to be even busier now than ever before. You see…

Beautiful Brisbane – Musings on a Monday

Welcome to my weekly Monday Musings – a summary of things going on in my world and the world at large. Brisbane is a lot warmer than my hometown, where FYI they have just started lighting winter fires! It’s very humid here and although the locals think it’s a bit cool, I think it’s a very comfortable temperature in the…

Victory – Final MOB update

Final update from the Mother of the Bride (aka MOB) THE WEDDING of the year has been and gone. It was beautiful, amazing and everything we could have wished for.  I’m happy but also sad – if that makes sense. We had the wedding over the course of a weekend with the majority of guests staying on site.  The ceremony was held…

My daughter, B2B and fiance G2B, and two of the beautiful bridesmaids have just been and gone!  We had  a weekend jam-packed with all things wedding related. As they all live a long way away (with one bridesmaid still in England),…

MOB update #2 – to spray tan or not to spray tan?

Update #2 from Mother of the Bride (aka MOB) My daughter, B2B, informed me a few weeks ago that the big day was less than 100 days away.  It’s now way less than that.  Cue excitement levels rising!! I can’t believe that time is flying by so fast.  She appears organised, so I’m feeling quite relaxed about it all too.  B2B and G2B are…

Tea Time #11 – Birthday month

I read somewhere recently, (I can’t remember where though), that the mother should be congratulated on the birth-day of her children rather than the way we do it now, showering the birthday child with gifts and birthday wishes.    I presume because the mother has done all the work in producing said child.  I don’t mind this idea! I remember sending my mother flowers when…
