A Special Birthday!

I usually drop in to tell you what's happening at the Meares' Madhouse, but I can't do that today ... Cos I'm not there! :0) This was my view this morning ...


It's a tough gig, but we're coping! Tee! Hee! Hee! We're at Bargara beach to help celebrate a pretty special birthday ... My Grandma is celebrating her 94th birthday! WOW! 


Here she is blowing out the candles on her apple crumble cheese cake ... It's a good thing we found a "9" shaped candle & a "4" shaped candle ... We'd never have fitted 94 single candles on the cake ... & might have set off the smoke detector! :0) She's still keeping pretty well & has only recently moved out of her own unit into higher care as she isn't just as steady on her feet any more & is getting a wee bit forgetful. (Though, seriously, who isn't a wee bit forgetful!)

While our family is pretty scattered - Cairns, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Toowoomba - a few of us managed to be on hand to wish Grandma a happy birthday ...


There were lots of finger-food treats to be nibbled while we chatted ... & maybe a glass of bubbles ...

My Aunt & Grandma ... "Cheers Bigears"! :0) Had a giggle at this next pic when editing ...


We're not sure what Grandma was thinking, but it looks like she's suspicious of what is in her glass! Tee! Hee! Hee!

It's been nice to catch up with family ... & the view's not hard to take! :0) Sadly we head home tomorrow & hoping to take some of the rain that is currently falling home with us.

Hope you're having a great weekend, too. :0) Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!

Lovely view! Glad you weren't being washed away - we've had a fair bit of rain in SE QLD this week!
