PHOTO HUNTERS - HAPPY

No matter how much you love your children sometimes you just need one of those moments when you can escape and get some peace and quiet....


My HAPPY photo is of our daughter Leanne last Summer stealing one of these precious moments in our garden.....HAPPY in the knowledge that just for a few minutes she could relax knowing the children were HAPPY playing in the park under the supervison of their Uncle Chris and HAPPY that Mum (me) was cooking a Sunday Roast.



BTW did you know there's a Cocktail called HAPPY Ending..........
Pour about 2 parts Vodka into a rocks or high ball style glass.
Add 2 parts Kahlua or another coffee flavor liquor.
Add 1/2 part orange liquor, such as Triple Sec or Grand Marnier.
Add an orange twist and ice and stir vigorously.
Enjoy your "Happy Ending" cocktail!

That cocktail sounds like the perfect gift to give Leanne the next time she has a moment's peace.

Ah, Leanne does indeed look happily seated in the garden...But, amidst all of the wonderful plants growing there, how could she NOT be happy? Love your photo!

Hi Ruth, Your daughter looks very relaxed in your wonderful garden and waiting for Mom's roast to come out of the oven would make anyone "Happy".Thanks for visiting my place today. Baba
