Birthdays and Deaths

Friday was my youngest sister's birthday, and today we had a family thing at my mum's house. My sister is now an adult, being 18. It was a good afternoon with a late BBQ lunch.

Prior to the party we went to church (great service), dropped hubby at home and went shopping at the markets. The main reason for going to the markets was to buy some small trees cheaply due to the death we had that morning.

The death was one of my male central netted dragons.

While at the markets the kids were on their best behaviour so they got to look at the pet stalls while I checked out the plant stalls. I looked at many stalls, and only two did I get service on (to be fair, it was pack up and leave time when we got there). The first didn't have what I wanted but the second did, hardy native small trees! While at this stall, Jade managed to score a free plant because she showed an interest in what was going on, and I guess it was the quiet time of the day. If I could remember the name of any of the plants I would tell you! She also was given a lettuce seedling which is now planted alongside the other lettuce seedlings.

(Our lettuce seeds have started to come up!)

After the markets it was a rush trip to K-Mart for some birthday present shopping (some bath stuff that comes with a pink fluffy/soft poodle bag, and a lollypop), then off to Coles for some cesear salad kits.

Finally we were off to the party.

It was good to catch up with my aunty, sisters, mum, and cousins.

After we left (early because I am a party pooper), it was home to dig holes in hard clay earth, plant some seeds, trees and seedlings, water the garden, bury the dead dragon (need to update my licence for that one). I gave hubby the chore of making the kids dinners (I had put pie in the oven for them already) while I made my own and ate quietly.

I am tired from the long day (and late night last night) so I imagine it will be an early bed tonight for me.

Tomorrow is a new day with swimming lessons and gym!
