AUSTRALIA DAY (well it was yesterday) :)

 Today ,Beauty's school is celebrating Australia day and for lunch they are having Kangaroo Meat Burgers and for break time they are having Koala Fingers as snacks...........just kidding :)

I had nothing in the house to do with Australia so the only thing Beauty could take in was Kanga and Roo and a camel .
Why the camel?
Well when Australia was first colonised they took camels with them but with the advent of the motor era there was less call for them and now there are just a few living in the outback.
And how do I know this?
A random documentary I watched on the history of Australia once :)
However, the question has to be asked, why did I not send her in with a sheep ?
We have plenty of those in the house!
All I can say is  it was too early this morning to think of things like that !

Here is Beauty on her way into school on a rare sunny morning.
Remember, we had hail storms yesterday :)

Beauty hiding her face from the paparazzi :)

No photographs please :)

Let me in :)

Beauty's breakfast/lunch table was decorated for the celebration by her teachers :)

As you must have guessed, Beauty LOVES celebrations .
Next on the list is Valentines Day :)

Happy Chinese New Year Everybody :)

This is Beauty before school yesterday in her Chinese New Year T Shirt.

A bit of advice, when you want to make an outfit for your child to wear to school it is best not to start making it at 8.30pm the night before !

Beauty did love wearing the T Shirt though :)

Happy Cinese New Year greetings card .

These are the Chinese New Year gifts that Beauty took to school for her teachers and friends.
Chinese tradition has it that the red envelopes contain money, Beauty and I put in chocolate coins left over from Christmas.
Well it was money........of a sort :)

This is the name poster that Beauty made LAST Chinese New Year.

Beauty and I hope you all had a lovely Chinese New Years Celebration yesterday :)

To all my family and friends, sorry I have been so bad at posting messages about Beauty and me but I promise to try harder this year .
Lots of love for 2012

An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
