Belated Birthday

Yesterday it was our eldest daughter, Carol-Ann's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! 
She lived in England for many years and loved hiking with her husband, David.


She loved visiting Australia and......


her family. She calls herself, "My father's daughter." as she has many similar traits and habits as he.


She is a happy person.....


but was sad to leave London.

I was overjoyed to have her back in Australia.


Now she is happy to be an Aunty but not sure about being a mother.

  5. THere is such a big difference between being an aunt and being a mother. She needs to take her time. The photos and the poses are just terrific. My kids refuse to pose like that for me, or maybe I am just not fast enough. She may be her father's daughter, but golly she is the spitting image of you.

  6. What a lovely family you have - the famous ones and the not-so-famous. It must be odd to see someone you know so well plastered all over a magazine (yesterday) - you'll be keeping that edition to show to Fox when he grows up.
