A new top hat

It's not every day you get a top hat. I'm making a steam punk costume, so this is a good start. Watch this space.

Jemma's 26th birthday in our front yard

 I started the chiminea at 3pm and then popped the lamb roast in half an hour later. Then I set up the garden to celebrate.
 The roast was cooked to perfection, and a good time had by all.
 Mum sat in the Moon chair the whole time thoroughly enjoying the show of her family.
 Helen's cheesecake birthday cake went down well.

 Ash brought his sister some roses.

Stephen's 40th birthday

 We dressed up as men to add some brothers to the mix, at our celebration of Stephen's 40th. A progressive dinner starting at the Boyds, and moving (by bike) to Helen's for main course, and then cycling to our place for cheesecake dessert, and a meeting.
 Here's 'Allen'
 and here's 'Jimmy'
 Here we all are.
 Golf and a gun range part of the fun.

Chim, chiminea, chim, chiminea, chim chim anea.

 My most recent acquisition, that is taking up far too much of my time and money. . .
 but it IS great fun. So far we've enjoyed an open fire and company, then a chicken dinner that with a bit of juggling was delicious, and last night - pizzas.
 Bring on the good times!
