Thank you

For all my beautiful birthday wishes, I had a wonderful day...
Spoilt by family and it continues tonight with a roast dinner at mums with my brother and his family and aunt & uncle...And another birthday cake..
woo hoo.

I haven't spent my voucher yet..can't decide what to many choices..

I also received hand cream from a good friend.. Seductive amber by Victoria secret... And boy does it smell seductive... Now to find someone to see if it is

And since we were at soccer yesterday Mad couldn't make me this for morning tea, so she did it this morning..

She had the macarons hidden in her room ..amazed she didn't have the midnight munchies..

Is today...yes i admit it is and happy to say I'm 45 and I'm still here to celebrate..
So far the day has been wonderful, kids made croissants with jam for my breakfast with a big m choc milk..don't do tea or coffee for breakfast..
They gave me a beautiful bunch of flowers, a cook book and a gift voucher to my favorite online cross stitch store...
Then it was onto soccer this morning, Mad came to which was unusual..she never comes... Should have been suspicious.. Lol
anyway Seb had 4 great shots at goal but missed...when the game was finished..they did win 3-2 and as he was walking off Mad says look at seb...
He was going to lift his top up when he scored, but did it walking off....

This was under his game top, he was so hot and sweaty wearing 2 tops and I had no idea..
He thought he would do it as a few international players have lifted their game tops to reveal another top underneath with something on it after he thought he would too..with help from his dad they made it last night while I was working and he was trying to hide it today under his top...
I was so close to tears as I thought it was such a beautiful thing my son could do for me...
Now I also have told him when he plays for Man U he can do it then

Another Fab 4 day out ..

This time to celebrate Megan - Helens DD baby shower.
I was quite proud of myself as I drove over 1 1/2hrs to get there..
on the freeways in Melbourne, over the Westgate & thru
the Burnley tunnel - no way could I shut my
eyes while driving thru it

Once again Helen outdid herself and
knew why I drove that far ..

such a fun afternoon for someone
very special.

the Fab 4 ..with Lissy being silly with a bow in her hair ..

soon it will be
the fab 4 - us
3 gorgeous girls - Megan, Candice & Mad

Soccer is back...

For winter...

We have graduated from a 1/2 pitch to a full pitch.

We have an umpire dressed in black, rather than a coach or parent

Seb is #18

And a

Stretcher for injuries.....
which I hope will never be needed for any child.

First game we won 9-1 , Seb kicked 2 goals...

sweet Treats #4 finished..

only 2 more to go and i'm done
until our GTG in August to do the
finishing touches..

So between the addicitve/obsessive family history
I have been doing until all hours of the morning,
kids on school holidays,
eating way to much easter eggs..little ones..
and hot cross buns , i finished it
off last night while
watching this old movie
with the kids.

I have watched it so many times,
and still laugh.
It was the first time the kids watched it,
and Seb mentioned
"hey, there's a Simspons episode
like this..they copied the Simpsons.."
No not quite

off to work this afternoon and I tell
you , that if I was Lady Lee-Ann
there would be no work , but sitting
in the palour, drinking tea and doing
fancy work ...

Just call me ....

Lady Lee-Ann ....

I have been doing my family history
for quite a few years now, so far I have 2 First Fleet convicts,
and a very naughty female convict ...oh and a murderer, but everyone
else is normal far

but last night I found that I am the
30th half great grand niece of
William the Conqueror ..

Yes I am royalty ...

his mother
Herleva "Arlette" Fitz Courtanneur Countess Mortaigne Duchess Normandy Falaise
who is my 31st Great Grandmother
was a mistress ..shhhh not telling that bit ..
Robert I "The Devil" "The Magnificent" V Duke of Normandy

Robert of Normandy paying court to Lady Herleva

they had a illegitimate child
William ...The King of England

she then went on to marry
Harlevin de "Burgo" "Chevalier" - Viscount of Conteville
and have more children and a daughter
Emma de Burgo of Normandy Lady De CONTEVILLE
who is my
30th Great Grandmother and half sister
to William ..

I think
Lady Lee-Ann is better than
Princess Lee-Ann ..

but I always knew had the "princess" in me ..

I know my daughter
Madeline does for sure
