Another year older...

Today is my birthday. This is a pic of my mother and me when I was about 4-5 months old. She was a swish 34 year old, wasn't she? How time flies - now she is 80 and I am 46!

It is tradition at our work that the birthday person has to bring in a cake for 'morning smoko' so I made 2 batches of muffins this morning. Cinnamon Crumble and Triple Choc Chip - ahem, I'm afraid you'll have to ask Betty Crocker for the recipes! The cinnamon crumbles are my favourite!

After a full day in the office, we are off to Mt. Gambier for dinner at a nice Thai restaurant, Wild Ginger. It will be yummy! Lucky me!

Cheers - Joolz
(It is also Bastille Day in France!)

  4. I remember some years ago asking a French girl who was staying for a few weeks if there was anything in particular she wanted to do on Bastille Day. She hadn't a clue what I meant!

    Happy Birthday Joolz. Those muffins look tasty - I bet there was no sickies thrown THAT day!

  5. Heck, if it's 14th today it must be 17th on Saturday so sis's birthday. Time to teach Keith how to make cupcakes I think

  7. Happy Birthday Joolz!! Don't let them work you to hard today. Cuppa's & cupcakes sounds good. Hope you enjoy your dinner tonight. How far do you have to travel?? & do you get a lot of roos on the road at night or is it a main & busy thoroughfare??
