Great lunch with Great friends and A Good Ole Giggle !

***URGENT UPDATE*** Please pop by Ali's Blog..some special little boys need all our help.

What more can a gal ask for....And no alcohol in sight either! LOL.

Yesterday i had the loveliest day out with 3 sweet gals. My mum Coll @ Colls Garden, my dear friend
Julles @ Jullies World and the lovely Sue @ Junkit Junction.
We met up at a great Cafe in the Blue Mountains and stuffed our faces with yummy food and had alot of laughs! It was our little Christmas lunch together.

Left front is me and thats my Mum peeking out from behind my hair, LOL,sorry mum. Front right is Julles and Sue is next to her.

*The funny thing was when we were sitting at the table and i said "Ok i bought prezzies"....then the girls all said "So did i". LOL neither of us knew that the others were bringing prezzies! Great minds think alike hey.
Sue gave us each (and Sam too)a pretty little wrapped bag of the yummiest caramel lollies (Sam was just tickled pink when i gave his to him later that day, he ate all of them in about 5 minutes) with some special 'Bling' in each one, mum gave the girls some super yummy Cadbury chocolate puddings (not me hoo, she was thinking about my waist line i guess..thanks mum). Julles made mum and Sue the cutest little paper cone/boxes with chockies and little trinkets inside.
I made the girls a Tussie Mussie each as my little gift, with a candy cane inside.

I went to Jullies house before the cafe' so we swapped our prezzies there. Julles knows me so well. She made some of her TOO CUTE snow men on sticks for me (i had admired them on her blog and she was being sneaky)and gave me a sweet teddy bear box filled with lots of goodies just for me. Julles always packages her gifts so lovingly, there is always so much thought in it. Oh and she even found this ADORABLE little chair for me!

Now you all know im a huge Chair-o-holic but at least this one doesnt take up too much room!
Heres some of my goodies from Julles (Sam seems to have 'borrowed' alot of them...)There was all sort of bits and pieces in there...mostly PINK of course, LOL.

My snow men (isnt she so clever)

And Jullie being the sweet thing that she is also had a prezzie for Sam. He was sooo excited (he loves jullie) when he saw the TOY STORY torch! And dinosaurs Julles you know him so well too.

For Julles i made this little hanging birds nest and one of my sweet Angels.

Ok back to lunch....
Well i forgot to take a photo of us 'digging into out food' but i did remember the Dessert...hmm funny how i should remember to photograph that :)
The girls...making the very important decision of what to have for Dessert...

We all ended up chosing the same ! LOL
Chocolate brownie with cream on the side.MMMMMM

It was sooo yummy but we couldnt fit it all in !

After 3 hours of non stop chatter we headed home in the rain....
Thanks girls for such a lovely day. Next time there will be wine!

Ok ...i think im finished rambling on now.....
I will be back b4 christmas day to wish you all the very best.

Until then...
Lotsa pink hugs,
Shann xo

Hon, i can't thank you enough for your generosity in donating to Benji for help with his medical costs. I have made a banner for everyone to put up to hopefully get him more help. Pop over to my blog again at to save it and link it to this address. I have done a page on my website with the info so it doesn't get lost down the page as I post. Thanks again hon and many blessings to you and your family as you give so selflessly. ox Ali
