What's been happening in my little corner...

Last Friday, as the afternoon wore on, it was obvious that our part of Brisbane was also affected by outbreaks of grass and bushfires....luckily all put out pretty quickly.

We've also had heavy clouds and eventually we did get some very welcome rain on Saturday night...this photo shows the dark clouds gathering in the afternoon.

On Sunday morning DH and I attended a service at one of the churches that makes up our parish. The foundation stone for the then new church was laid on this date 50 years ago. Among the guests were the first person baptised in the new church and the first couple to be married in the church. Bishop Richard came from Newcastle to be part of the service as well. 

Then after the service DH headed off to golf and I headed for Newmarket's 'Gloria Jean's' for my monthly coffee meet up with the group 'The Newmarket Mums'. Next month is our Christmas Luncheon and this year it is at my place! So we organised the menu on Sunday...who is bringing what etc.

My notes for organising the Christmas Luncheon...
 This photo is of our last year's lunch which was at my friend Carmel's.

Then last night, the family went off to the iconic Breakfast Creek Hotel to celebrate DsD3's 26th birthday 
:-)... DsD2 baked a birthday cake too. It was the first 'paleo' cake I've ever eaten. (don't know about the 'paleo' diet?? Google it! DsD3 is following this diet.)

Is the cake dinosaur flavoured? Isn't it funny how almost everybody has a different take on their diet these days.
